Glad to see the back of those TUs & TDs.  I lost count of the amount of innocuous posts that got TDs, and I’m not just talking about me.  I think they could be used to be disrespectful because of the posters club allegiance alone.

And I agree with Tris. I think it encourages posters (lurkers) to be lazy.  TD it and job done!  Instead of engaging with a couple of lines giving an alternative view.

Not even sure if I would have any ratings, but the stars are better than previous.

Pig Pink you seem to have double standards when dealing with certain posters on here.  You pulled what I thought was an innocuous post from here when I replied to a comment by Hoopy 7.    I followed that up by giving you the benefit of the doubt and apologised in case I had transgressed.   Did I get an explanation or an acknowledgement?

The very next post was BB and YOU were apologising to HIM for blanking part of his post.  BB is btw one of my favourite posters.

I earlier posted about poor refereeing in Scotland in general and the SFA.  You were not happy that refereeing came up as a topic but let Auldheid (Whom I greatly admire) off with it:

“Auldheid’s contributions are tangentially related of course, but in a more general sense.”

My post was also in a general sense.

You got favourites BP?

Now that you have made the case, it would appear so!

I’m totally not understanding this. Read Starman’s posts above nothing harmfull. And Neepheid’s too?

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Dom16,  Was thinking about Christmas decorations today.  I took mine down.  Most neighbours have done the same.  Nowadays with the huge build up to Christmas from November we are ready to put it behind earlier than in the past.  It used to be customary to keep decorations up until 5 Jan. ‘Epiphany Eve’ or ‘twelfth night’.  It’s good to see them go up but good to see them put away for another year!
(Merry Christmas).

Historical / hysterical January transfers:
Jean-Alain Boumsong (Rangers to Newcastle £8m, 2005)
This was a strange signing on many levels, with Newcastle paying Rangers £8m for Boumsong’s services just a few months after he’d been available on a free.

The Newcastle manager?  G. Souness! 21

(Think he received an EBT after it)

Just dawned on me it might be easier to just disable the thumb down button rather than introducing a LIKE button. 

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
The thumbs down misuse mystifies me.  It happens often.  I wish we had a simple LIKE button with no dislike option.  You either vote for a post in a positive way or scroll past.  I know it would sacrifice the option of registering a strong disagreement in points of principle, but worth it I think. 

It would take away the perverse satisfaction of these trolls.  Besides, our great posters are very able to counter any dubious posts with logical counter arguments. (Which can then be LIKED)
