Just a quick note to those arsed about the difference it would make if we had Hicks/Gillett Out instead of Yanks Out on a couple of banners:
How many angels can you balance on the head of a pin?
Seriously, stop finding fault in literally everything we try to do and either get on with it or leave us alone. That march exceeded our greatest expectations, the work involved by a team of volunteers, most with families and nearly all with "day jobs" to get on with, was phenomenal. How do you think it was publicised and allowed to happen at all? Where do you think all those big, uniquely Liverpool, banners "appeared" from (for those not at the march, a selection of the best "wavers" were down the front of the Kop during YNWA)? And after all that you think we're going to go running around policing what people choose to bring along? Honestly, have you got the foggiest?
Yet another thread by someone trying to give us a bit of credit gets derailed by the anonymous internet fault finders. Do you realise the draining effect this has on the volunteers at the heart of SoS? Do you give a fuck? Do you do it on purpose or what?
apparently you dont know the difference between whining like a little girl (which is what you are doing), and constructive criticism. If I had posted that it should be changed for no good reason, or i had a good reason and just didn't say.. instead just put something like 'change it. The End.' then i'd agree.. that would be a waste of time. to make a point that 'yanks out' can seem misleading, which can only be counter productive in a time when we're trying to gain support instead of pissing off potentially millions of people.
yet another thread with people whining about a thread.. but.. i'll answer your questions:
Q: Do i realise the draining effect this has on the volunteers at the heart of SoS?
A: If making a suggestion which might help the cause is draining, they need a holiday
Q: Do I give a fuck
A: If I didn't, I personally wouldn't have bothered replying to this at all.
Q: Do I do it on purpose (or what) ?
A: Do I have an opinion on purpose? yep.. I'm allowed one just like every other liverpool fan is allowed one.
On a bit more of a serious note. What some of the whiners in this thread are going on about is utterly ridiculous.. having an opinion, or shock horror, even trying for constructive criticism shouldnt' be viewed as putting SoS down. The march was a huge success and I applaud every single member that marched.. i was unable to as I'm in the states.. I'm 100% behind the movement and I wish I could have been there.. but lighten the fuck up.. just because someone else has an idea doesn't mean you have to freak out like we're putting the screws on SoS
