if you want to post potentially libellous stuff please do it on your own Twitter feed or start up your own forum.

We all know the news but the moderation team don't have the time to spend all day deleting 'humourous' and homophobic posts.

Thanks.

Might as well just wipe the RAWK servers and start from scratch to be honest.

;D yeah I really didn't think that through - but the context is clear - on such a highly sensitive topic, anyone posting stuff that compromises our site will be looking for another site.

Me too.
I'll start a 'just giving' page to collect dosh to bribe the powers that be to open another Everton thread.
Let me the first to donate 50p  ;D

On a more serious note... I do miss making fun of our neighbours  :(

Any chance we can have a new Ev thread, so we can take the piss out of Big Drunk not being allowed to go to Florida because of his thuggish past?  ;)

Obviously there are daft people who cannot help themselves and RAWK has a duty to protect itself and its members - the removal of the thread in that moment was probably the wisest option. I think the message is loud and clear...so, new thread time?

Had some family over today that I hadn't seen in over a year so was far too occupied to pop in here.
Just tell me; did the new thread even reach page two? 
EDIT... Thank you  :wave

Yeah it did, just

So is the old thread gone forever? Can it not be bought back, locked, minus the offending posts or even the last however many pages or whatever?

There's some absolute gold in there, really good material -  funny stuff, clever stuff, powerful stuff, moving stuff including a fair bit of my stuff I'd quite like to be able to read again and solid gold posts from the likes of Son of Spion and other luminaries. 

I know it's an ephemeral medium, but it still feels like someone's pinched the dog and legged it when so much good stuff goes missing.

I'll have a look when I've got a lot of time to clear it up and possibly merge the two mate.
