Davvo, Bleedsred, Zappa. I would gladly share a pint with any of you and as Michael hinted with his excellent pub analogy we share your pain. There are plenty of posters on here I would gladly fuck off right now and whom I would move to the other bar to avoid in the local.
The thing is though, despite impressions to the contrary we don't just ban people on a whim, nor should we. There has to be some degree of consistency and fair play.
We're all fans and some of these people are as irritating to some of us as they are to you, but we really need the regulars to help rather than exacerbate the situation. Abusing the idiots and letting them claim the moral high ground does not help. There are glaring holes in their arguments, illustrate them, expose them.
It seems to me that the main problem revolves around a debate about Rafa and people on both sides of that debate who cannot let it lie and bring it up in every thread. Perhaps we need to have a look at that...
I think you hit the nail on the head there in so far as the Rafa debate and all that that entails. To say it's a touchy subject is an understatement.
Must try harder not to get sucked in to these circular agruments about the man in future.
If nothing else its getting pretty boring.
