There is a locked thread about cyberbullying in the forum attributed to me and locked  a thread i didnt set up, can someone at least be honest in here. i also note only selective posts should i be surprised about stuff like this anymore ?
Shaqiri is an important member of the LFC Squad and a steal for the price we paid for him.
Fabinho could he be the last piece of the jigsaw we needed?

I have changed the topic title to make it plain it has been split from the Brexit topic. It got pulled out to avoid derailing the Brexit topic.

Hi Geoff.

I understand why you and some other members sometimes feel singled out and treated unfairly when a moderator (I mean any moderator) posts a pointed remark. It feels like you are being rebuked or moderated simply because the comment has come from a moderator. But if the comment would not illicit the same feeling if it came from another ordinary member, then it is generally safe to assume that you are probably overreacting. Your views in the Brexit thread are more in the minority. So, you will be more on the pointy end of the stick than most other members. How you feel when you receive such a comment is not unique to you; most of us (including me) will take double-take when a moderator makes a pointed comment towards us. But I try to ask myself, are they 'moderating' me, or just just joining in the same kind of rhetoric as other members and remain within what is generally allowed at the community?

I think there are all kinds of legitimate pointed retorts which could have been made in response to Alan. But I honestly do not think he was being unfair, picking on you, or as someone else posted, was 'punching down'. I'm sure you can give as good as you get, and Alan could take it too.

No you misunderstood a thread about cyber bullying was set up not by me but wrongly attributed to me,  i never thought what alan posted was cyber bullying just needless, Just wanted that to be put right and it was, point made, case closed, i thought.

Simply a case as of 'Not in my Name'

 but i will always stand by what i post in here and fight my corner.

Time has passed and the issue had faded, but there's two important points there. Geoff never made that suggestion, it was - and I'm not overreacting, it was just a fucking imbecile.
