The point is that Klopp decided to leave in November. Hence my point about the timing of the announcement.
I even clarified the point in posts that were deleted.

I think it was being cleaned up because someone posted an article about Klopp from the Spectator. If so, it’s good to know that the staff on here don’t tolerate any mention of that rag.

The article was an unacceptable, vituperative, acerbic pile of shite which should never have been posted on this site mate and is never to be mentioned again.
Fuck the c*nts.

How this is allowed, and people still don't know what are and aren't, acceptable sources to be submitted as credible journalism, on these boards, is a worry.

Perhaps an update of the locked 'credible sources' thread in the main forum and a site wide link message to all, to the thread, may go some way to educate a forum, that considers itself educated.

It may be that more recent younger posters weren’t around when Johnson published Heffer’s original piece of shite in the Spectaror, only to be followed up by Johnson’s own snide ‘apology ‘ in a later edition.

Even the Daily Mail wouldn’t publish that utter garbage that was posted on here - mind you I only read a few lines and made my excuses and left.

Be great if you could report stuff like that in future folks. I was online I think but I was just back from the match and didn't even notice it had been posted until this morning when I saw John had cleaned it all up. Really helps us deal with stuff like that sooner if it's flagged to us. We can't read every post.

Cheers.

Hello mate  :wave
We've starred (*) one of the threads requiring posters to think about what they are saying. But that shouldn't be needed, RAWK has always had a philosophy of self-moderation and we'd have expected that to have been exercised by the poster.
It's difficult for us to be more proactive because although there is enough Mods around, some of us were at the match, have lives to live and indeed don't scrutinise every thread in detail. Generally the report button is used to capture such crap.

And for the other posters reading, the report button is for offensive and unacceptable posts, not opinions you disagree with.

John, you know me, I'm generally not arsed, but its an awful lot of work for you(or others) If you've got to sift through things to sanitise or remove, if people don't know what is or isn't acceptable.

That token gesture thread(which it appears to be) the 'approved sources' thread, that's locked, that's not been updated in 4 years and, lets be honest mate, who even notices it when they are on their own private internet warpath? ..... It sits there doing nothing.... so if its not relevant (refuses to put mods name in here as agag ;D) and people, especially new comers aren't pointed to it - what is the point?

As I say - Its your ball mate, and I'm not going to labour the point  - but its not making sense to me, to not give people some guidance and advice. Ditch the thread if you are not going to, is what I would say.



Anyway, fuck off, I cant stand non of ye!  I'm not arsed ;D

The mourning of departed reds, thread in the boozer, can this be moved to the main football forum?

Us fans are the lifeblood of this club and also this forum and I think the main forum is a more befitting place for it to reside. They and we, are the foot soldiers.

Not sure why I put it in the boozer in the first place 🤷‍♂️

what was the reasoning John? I think it would be a huge improvement to be honest.

I imagine it's a non-trivial sw modification but I seem to recall (could be completely wrong!) that it was more a "we don't want to be like other sites" thing?

Do we still need the corruption fallacy thread on the main board?

It adds nothing of value (especially when compared to the rational OP) and is mainly just bickering about the media and conspiracies.

We have the VAR & Ref thread in General Sport and there's a ton of crossover there anyway, feel like the same conversation in the wake of the Forest game was being had in about 5 threads.

Hi mate, I think they are two separate subjects to be honest it's just that posters don't use them appropriately.
The conspiracy thread is about other clubs, fans, refs, media etc supposedly with a bias against us while the VAR/Ref thread is about all officiating decisions across football in general.

You're right that there is a duplication, we had a Ref Watch thread which could be merged with the VAR thread, albeit they are even two separate discussions if used correctly.
One is about Refs and one is about the VAR system.
It's hard to get posters to use threads correctly without us having to constantly delete, delete, delete.
