    there has been some poor moderating around this issue frog. i trust it was just because you haven't seen the posts question rather than turning blind eye.

    I hope now these scandalous accusations will be dealt with by the mods.

    It is actually a good indicator of how things have changed.

    John H is of a generation when Universities were centres if free speech, as was the BBC

    Now in the BBC you’ve got a lot of employees who were taken through Universities where thinking in a certain way is promoted so they produce programs in that vein.

    Doubt if frog will remember the last time this term was used so give him a break eh? The only person who is using it is you. Have you got a sermon or summat this afternoon. Perhaps one of the congregation will accuse you of being one and you can cast em into the pits of hell for all eternity.

    Much more effective than a *******ing from the mods I would say.

    Rather reminiscent of what your "like-minded friends" Kempo and Monty used to say... a lot... . How are they keeping these days?

    A quick search of the forum shows that the word has been used mainly in O/T threads with a political focus, ones I tend not to read. Maybe we should just ban those types of thread and restore MM harmony around football and less contentious issues in life? But then again the moderators would be called, what's the word, it begins with N?

    In fairness, the Mods allowed a poster to complain of "dirty pakis" on a thread last week, so I'm not sure the op can complain that free speech is too badly curbed. Not on here anyway. Seems pretty much a free for all so let's all just say what's in our hearts eh?

    I am assuming the mods missed that one as I did.It might be a good idea for them to find it and remove it now though.

    Latest one about the grooming gangs. It was actually "paki scum bags". Not acceptable in my book and I reported it but the Mods kept it on. Their Web site and up to me if I carry on coming back on a site that tolerates such "free speech" on a football message board. But it was allowed so its a bit rich for IBS and his info wars obsession to be wailing about not being allowed to say what...he 'thinks'...

    How did you report it? I didn't see anything so I've just tested the Report Post button and nothing has materialized in my inbox so far so maybe it's not working.

    PS It's not 'our' website. Both Frog and myself became moderators due to needing to edit threads we regularly managed, him the match thread and me the prediction league. We stuck around when others left for various reasons and sort of inherited the roles we now find ourselves in.

    Pressed the little exclamation mark in the bottom left of the post and submitted as a message. Isn't that the procedure for reporting a post?

    No it doesn't. There is never a justification for using racist language, especially on a football message board which is open to be read by kids and people of all nationalities. If you harbour and support such expressions, keep them to your own circles or form a closed message board for people that share your specific thoughts.

    Is scum bags of Pakistani heritage OK for you?

    Well, wholly acceptable in my book and a crying shame these gangs groomed girls over a long period of time.

    Why are so many heads in the sand?

    If I go to watch Rotherham away, I sit amongst a fair few scum bags. Goes with the territory.

    That doesnít make all Rotherham fans scum bags nor does it mean all Pakistani men are groomers if you read comments like above.

    Itís getting silly. You donít even live in Rotherham. Unlikely you know anyone affected but itís likely a few posters have been affected or know someone who has.

    Iíd be saying a lot worse if my daughter had been let down like the 1000ís in the UK already have been.

    So two fingers up to your complaint.

    Not on the football threads IBS. The O/T political threads maybe different and I admit to not reading them and letting folk get on with the insults and not letting them cross over. CAM and I will always look into any complaint made.

    I have certainly never received a complaint from you. The best way to report anything is through the Notification button at the top. That will send a private message directly to who it is addressed to and not through the FootyMad moderators.

    Absolutely agree howdy

    Kids have been grossly abused & no doubt left scarred for life but let's concentrate on a couple of words which may cause offence to some
    Oh dear what a shame
    Find another soap box rp as this one does you no credit
