I thought Square all might be on there . I was on there for many years up to last year when a civil war errupted . Didn't involve me , but some awful people on there who seem to bully anyone with different views and gang up on people . Quite a few left around or after I left , horrendous atmosphere on there , the nasties are still there including one who seems to think he is a doctor but spends all time posting on that site. Anyway , glad to see it isn't among the top sites. Also might have expected WACCOE .

Was that done by polling or is it just a promotion type thing from sponsors?... either way it's good advertising but nice to be #1 through a poll...

Maybe they didn't list Waccoe because you can't read the forum without logging in.

Waccoe (in my opinion) are full of bullys. If I dare suggest or give my opinion which is different to the cliche, thats unacceptable, and you'd be called a vile name

In my experience of it over the last year it's mostly tongue in cheek and self-parody. That may not be immediately obvious to the casual observer. There are interesting folk, and people you choose to ignore, just like anywhere.

Surprised it's still like that to be honest.

I only set it like that as the number of gust users was sending the database server over the edge.

Which suggests it's being deliberately overlooked for some reason.

To be honest I haven't been there in ages. I can't remember what it was, but I thought I'd check it out ages ago to see what the reaction was. Couldn't view it obviously and couldn't log in - either my membership or password must have expired or something. Wasn't really a big deal though so I didn't pursue it.

Isn't it true you don't post on the Leeds United topics though Faaip which is the main reason we all came together in the first place?

You need to be a brave man/woman to go on some of their topics inevitably someone is going to abusive to you.

That's more to do with I get there late, match days I do here and for most other topics on football over there there's already at least 5 pages and I never feel I can comment without reading the thread. I do post on football every now and again but post and leave unless I'm in the mood to argue.. I write and delete as many posts here as as I actually post as well....
