Despite your supposed stance on not taking the internet too seriously, I think you're the one taking this way out of context.

You should take a backseat for a while. Outside your half dozen regular posters there are a handful of us who come on here to catch up on a bit of Wanderers news, that we've already read elsewhere, and to enjoy a bit of a healthy and fun debate between a few entertaining posters - they're all you've got after all. 

Although I'm far from a regular poster on here, and clearly of no value to you, I'm happy to back off if it bothers you that much.

Lighten up. Mate.

You do what you like Fin.

I don't see much point these days about beating about the bush in respect of Bread.  I've deliberately kept as quiet as I could be on the matter but others want to keep on pushing it so we might as well face up to it now.

Bread was been banned for abuse, persistent, never ending, relentless, abuse.

The whole mood of the forum has lightened up significantly since he went.

Yes, I know many people liked him - including you - but you're not the ones receiving his bile, day after day, month after month, year after year.

Read his twitter account - it's the same thing except his bile is for Trump, Brexit voters and Conservatives - day after day, month after month...

If that's your thing them go and play best mates with him over there.

I don't take the internet seriously even though Bread bangs on that I do.

I'd rather Nuts shuts down than have to rely on Breads hatred and abuse of others to keep people here.

Nuts has never been about that.

It's precisely because I have been too easy going and not overly serious about what people post that over the years it has got somewhat out of hand and became what it was.  It went far too far and in the end it had to be stopped.

So what's the point of pussyfooting about any longer - Bread won't be returning anytime soon and if people don't like that then they are free to do whatever they want.

Hopefully they think there is more to Nuts than Bread but if they don't then that's their choice.

The Sun will rise tomorrow, Nuts will still be here - so then it is up to people if they want to post stuff for the rest of us to read, respond and enjoy, or go and do there own stuff somewhere else.

Hope most decide to stick with us - and that includes you Fin - I don't want anyone to leave but neither do I want anyone to be under the false illusion that Bread will be returning in the near future either.

I think that is fair and reasonable comment.

I hope everyone else does too.

I'm going to put my two pennyworth in here. I had decided to walk away from  Nuts about a month ago - mainly due to Breadman's comments. Because I disagreed with the way he was going to vote in the recent general election he referred to me as a c**t and someone who would go out and kick puppies to death and shit on the homeless.
I neither need nor need to put up with that sort of abuse.
The explanation given elsewhere was that he was continually fuelled by alcohol and that it was the booze talking. But that's not good enough as either an excuse or an explanation for his vile and vicious running commentaries.
 I used to enjoy this site bacause of the football banter and the occasional but controlled piss taking that went on- people were mildly abusive ,but it was done with humour and a sense of respect.
But this guy was constantly foul mouthed and vicariously abusive- and so I had decided to call it a day as no one has to put up with the abusive  and personal rants that he indulged himself with.
I'm with Sluffy on this one- I'm glad he's been banned and he should stay that way. If he comes back ,even apologetically, or under an alias he should stay banned.
Already the tone of this site is lighter and more enjoyable without him.
I don't ask or expect that the site is all sweetness and light- we need a bit of vitriol ,anger,debate and disagreement as that's what makes us human, but we don't need downright personal and vindictive abuse because that spoils it for everyone.

Wow, I didn't know that, Rammy. You're right to baulk at such abuse. As an ex-neighbour, I sympathise. I certainly would not have been able to tolerate similar highly personal outbursts if directed at me.

I've been appalled by some of Bread's comments, particularly after the EU referendum, but tried to balance such vitriolic late-night hysteria with the number of times Bread has made really interesting, intelligent, amusing contributions, which have supplied the site with lots of responses and debate. Without him, the site is undoubtedly quieter.

In some ways, Bread's most objectionable comments are a reflection of the shift in the nation's general attitude, using social media to launch into tirades, safe behind their computer screens.

But many people are also nowadays unafraid to loudly, openly and publicly castigate those who disagree  with their own views, in a world where Trump, Piers Morgan and Katie Hopkins are seen to get away with, and even prosper from, the most outrageous, deliberately controversial standpoints

Wasn't that just a general comment aimed at everyone who didn't vote Labour though?

Forums need villains. Forums need debate and argument. This site now has none of those.

Villains are one thing we can, and do accept, but like Rammy, I voted Conservative and for Brexit. Breads abuse was getting worse, and amounted to nothing more than disgraceful tirades. Hiding behind the fact that he appeared to have a drink problem, or personality disorder, just doesn't cut it, and I feel that Sluffy gave him more than enough time to settle. Although I liked Bread, he was like a runaway train once he started, and abuse was getting more and more personal. He obviously has a problem, (don't know what precisely), but working through it at the expense of other posters wasn't the way to deal with it.

I'm glad to see Rammy is back. Another sensible poster who has a good sense of humour and doesn't resort to abuse to win an argument.

PS. Okocha too!

It might have been but it was still well beyond the pale of what anyone has to put up with. It was still personally abusive and not appropriate here. There are other websites where he could spew up his bile.

I think you've got selective memory, there's been loads of bile on this site over the years - I just think you chose to take this one personally.

Every site needs a mentalist. It used to be Amos, then Scott, then Bread.

Who's going to fill the void?

If you get called a c**t - what other way is there to take it apart from personally.
As regards filling the void- if the situations vacant, why don't you fill it

He's good thanks. I don't see him much, as I work a lot and so does he.

Yeah he does, once a Wanderer, always a Wanderer. Very Happy

Not too sure about the Leeds game, all depends on work, would like to make it though. If not I've already booked to stop at the Whites Hotel for the Sheffield game as birthday treat to myself. Never stopped there before, so decided it was about time.

Hope you have a great time when you do (Wednesday, United or both games?).

I'm sure Reebok Trotter and probably one or two others would be happy to meet up with you before/after the game for a beer if you would like that and have nothing else planned.
