Would the last poster leaving please turn off the lights .

Post by Lookin back »

Looks like this once lively small forum has slipped past the on life support stage to now dead.
What happened?
Why did so many posters leave ?
What was the root cause of them leaving ?
Bea. Maybe you can shed some light on Why.

There’s got to be a common denominator.
Wonder what it is ?

rubbish

the essence of a fight club is not to have civilised debates, its to have some tongue in cheek fun.
it isn't the lets all be sensible club
the reason everyone has left is because of the heavy handedness of the clown who moderates these forums
banning everyone
seriously who bans someone from a fight club who hasn't
threatend anyone
racially abused anyone
or broken any forum rules at all

this is the reason this forum is on life support & no other
the present moderator
the quicker the owner of the site shows him the door , the quicker this place will get going again.

Yep. Wookie carry's on like a petulant 10 year old. I told him and beatup years ago if they want this site to be an AFL wankfest with no other sports allowed just do it. Call it 'Talking Fumbling' and go ya hardest!!!! But no........they continue on with the pretext this is a site for all sports.

Then when Wookie and the other AFL sooks here get smashed with facts Wookie assumes some God like authority and bans all the RL posters with a torrent of abuse attached.

If beatup wants this site to do anything he'll have to sack Wookie! Plain and simple!!!!

Agreed
The bias is terrible
RL posters banned or threatened with bans just because the Admin don’t agree with them.

You are told to air your grievances in PMs Not on the board
Well that’s not an option when the reply is
Didn’t bother reading it.

When rules are broken if it’s an AFL poster. No action .
That’s fine .
You can send multiple PMs showing where or report post as asked to .
Result ..nothing .

Just told. It’s not a kindergarten .
Lol then the dummy is spat when he doesn’t like a post that’s not even near breaking a rule .

Fix the Problem Bea it’s up to you
& you might attract some traffic here .

It’s simple. Break rules. Get punished
AsATM it’s only one side copping it .

Only one side moderated .

& the only reason this thread was started is your inaction in addressing (via PMs) the problem

So I fully expect this to get deleted.

You’d rather do that then let the few remaining posters have their say .

Over to you

Agreed! If beatup wants this site to continue he needs to make a statement. How is this site going to run? Who is gonna run it? What is allowed and what isn't?

It needs a total restructure with a new balanced moderator and a clear set of rules!!!!!

The main issue for beatup is what he wants this site to be. If he wants an all sports site you can't have a ranting rabidly biased moderator.

Imagine how many posters this site would have if Wookie didn't go on mad RL banning sprees. Or carry on with some assumed superiority he simply doesn't possess.

In any case I suspect beatup will just close the joint down. Which is a pity as it has the potential to be a very good site.

why are there bans in the first place ?
there shouldn't be any except for very serious breaches & we know that isn't the case
the fumblers arent here because there is no one to argue with , & as for a reasonable manner forum
start one up here & watch it being avoided like the plague because thats boring as bat crap

If it continues this way then turn the IP address off & forget about it. Its done.

So much bullshit
Here’s some facts Wookie
When you try to log in for a month or more & the message comes up
Permantly banned for pissing the admin off
Then that’s enough to tell a poster they’re banned for good .
That’s followed up with some pathetic excuse about it was a technical prob .
Sorry that doesn’t wash .

Simply put
If you as an admin make rules then how about enforcing them for your AFL poster mates .

It goes like this
You make rules
Posters are asked to not reply but report or send PM .
Send PM .
Get a smart arse condescending reply off you that ignores the issue .
Due to that the thread turns to shitfest till you have a meltdown & yes you do & then threaten to do this or that Ban everyone blah blah.
Simply put
If you actually enforced your rules then it wouldn’t get to that .
For some reason that’s a hill you can’t climb .

You have been sent PMs so has Bea where It had been highlighted that personal threats were made to pay someone to fuck up a poster ..TWICE
You ignored this & wonder why you get PMs having a shot at your Bias .
The rule was even highlighted yet you still ignored it .
Bias much. Yep it’s there for all to see .
In fact you never did a thing to that poster never even deleted the post yet banned the poster who complained about your inaction .

Strange result yet not unexpected when one is an AFL poster & one is a RL poster .

The above is a Blatant example of why this thread was made .(other posters have the same problem)
Either mod for everyone or let someone else do it who will .
Maybe then the site can attract more traffic .

Wookie really is a joke!! He blames RL posters for every single thing regardless of actual cause. Whilst he is the most abusive ranting biased poster here. And then he runs cover for his AFL mates who get away with murder.

You simply can't set a standard and then be the one to continually break it. He is totally unsuited to be in charge of anything!!

Threatening to ban a poster or posters just because you don’t like them is bullshit.
When no rules are broken then there should be no power trip threats .

Debate the poster .
Or ignore
It’s not hard
But until rules are broken no threats should be made .
If they break the rules then fair enough. That’s not a problem .
This should apply to others as well as RL posters

Thats flatly not true.

My posts are what you deserve. You carry on like you own the place, sometimes you need reminding that you dont.

Sure.
Good on ya Wooks. You've killed this site and now your about to bury it!!!!!! Good job!!!

As a so called "fumbler" I would put forth why I don't post much as for me, what seems to come from the NRL poster mainly is diatribe. It's like a conversation at the pub and you disagree - you have a bit of a chat - you may even get a bit heated in that discussion - but after a while you move on. I can have decent conversations and debates with Leroy for instance - we can go at each other a bit - and we can often see the other's point and often disagree vehemently - but we move on eventually. That's sort of how social interactions work. It also seems that every time a point is made positive for AFL there is some new goal post being brought in - whether it is rating (we need regionals but not AFL regionals, we need estimates, we just count fox, we count streaming etc. etc). The whole thing on ratings, it is just at the point where it gets to well, guess we have to agree to disagree - and if you don't, well, for me fine, but I'm done going around in circles putting my point across- it's gone stale that is all - it is not about running away or not facing facts and figures - this has been done to death - it's stale - over - and me for one bored of it. I did put the finals ratings thread up in the hope to generate discussion hoping there would be less ambiguity with less mitigating factors - but as I was writing it was thinking that as the AFL usually win these ratings there will be some stupid reason or excuse - but posted it anyway. In all, I think may be people have grown up a bit - who cares really if AFL or NRL are the most popular, some fun with some cheap banter - but people seem to take it very seriously. It's just a game of footy - maybe Covid have meant people have some real things to worry about? Who knows?

So for me, it is more like how long can you flog a dead horse. And who cares. I think it just got old real fast.
