Who exactly has been hunted off the forum? I know a few fallings out amongst posters led to one or other quitting the site, but having been around for the last 6 years, I'm certainly unaware of there ever having been a concerted effort to hound someone off the board

Agree with that in general... apart from 1 thing...

I feel Twiggs was hounded out of his own forum....... although the majority of those that did it are not on here now...

Tbh, hector, whilst I remember Twiggs going, I can't remember all the circumstances surrounding his departure. Though I recall the forum being a pretty grim place for a few months with a lot of big posters tearing into each other. For what it's worth, the forum now is a nicer place to be. Perhaps that's why we lose people on a regular basis, the lack of spark or fire, but personally I'm too old for playground fallouts or keyboard warriors. I come on here to read and comment on my team, have a bit of craic with the games etc and that's it. If I want a fight, I can talk to the wife!!

Twiggs was the master of his own downful..but never hounded out. He just lost every ounce of credibilty which he should have defended, at least here,

Riot just got pissed off and we weren't anti Celino enough for GW. Which is understandable

I wonder what Martyn (GW) thinks of Cellino these days? Whatever his myriad faults, he's let Monk get on with it this season and the results are there to see. Does he post on waccoe?

He does and still as anti Cellino as ever...I got called out this morning by someone with no real point but ignored it. Any post even offering the slightest Cellino approval is shot down and jumped on by those not in agreement, usually with no real argument and then closed by the less than impartial mods.

:roflmao:

True Nick it wasn't pleasant whatsoever, as you say as we all become older I personally prefer the mellowness on this forum

Much more respect for one another on here nowadays. After saying that I miss the old members who made a great contribution on here away from the all the stirred up aggravation

I do too, Leon; GW, Riot and Gino in particular. Didn't always agree with their POV (Riot's unwavering support for Bates a case in point), but they all brought something to the forum.

We all face enough battles in life, spending my forum time arguing and name-calling over differences of opinion is not my idea of fun. I'll take the mellow version of MOTforum every time!

Riot got fed up with that idiot who decided to post an essay every time Riot posted. He went once Riot called it a day. Cracking poster Riot and the most missed here for me. even if I didn't agree with everything he said. His take on MC would be interesting at the very least...

It was never support but a tolerance and a open minded need to balance the argument. A true wordsmith.

My memory may be flawed, but it felt like his tolerance veered toward support to me. Either way, I agree re his eloquence, always loved reading his posts

What was the name of that idiot Faaip ?

Riot is a massive Ayling fan, he always posted up his love for attacking full-backs
