If it wasn't used as an offensive term then how was it meant?
Classic, isn't it?
As for all those like P&C who he says contacted him to complain, if they would kindly PM me I'll be happy to apologise personally for my obvious racial ignorance.
I think P&C may be telling porkies about the flood of complaints. Feel free to call him a dick tho, apparently its acceptable on this supposeedly family friendly site. Depending on who you are of course.
At no pint did I say a flood of complaints - I said a number. I said I found it offensive and others did too. I made it clear that the fact that anyone found a term on here so vile and offensive as I found the term used was enough for a banning. I still believe its use by the original poster and acceptance by others is based on ignorance (which let's face it is the basis of all discrimination - just look at UKIP) and therefore all I did was modify the post to keep the meaning of the poster's sentiments whilst pointing out that I'd changed it and explaining why.
I'm concerned that you (Womble) seem keen to use the phrase and justify its use purely as a mod-bashing exercise. Tell you what go and use the phrase on other sites where people find it acceptable - there's one not far away. It isn't acceptable on here. Simples - keep this up and my vote will be for a ban. Funny that when it suited on the Frank Harper thread you argued the opposing view, probably because it gave you the opportunity to have a go at the running of the site again. If you don't like the way the site is run - go elsewhere, not many will miss you.
Grumpy - I said it before - I found it offensive. Apologise to me by pm if you're genuine in wanting to make an apology. If you're not genuine then fine, we know where you're coming from.
Ah well now's as good a time as ever...
No Mark I won't be apologising to you. Why? Because it is my view that you are talking utter bollocks and purely singling me out.
Why do I come to this conclusion? Shall I tell you?
Well, that's because in the not too distant past a Brief Synopsis (Sponsored by Bromleigh House Ltd)! thread STARTED BY YOU, see's another poster use the VERY SAME PHRASE !
Guess what? It's been there ever since! No one, not even you saw fit to complain or find it offensive! And please don't say you didn't see it. People who start threads (especially Mods!) will most certainly read the replies to their posts!
I've screenprinted it, just in case I get accused of anything underhand. Here it is. (I've taken the two words out so's no one can be offended)
Now, onto the game, it was exactly what I expected. A tough, ***** ****** game where we were made to battle for everything.
So there we have it M'lud.
Happy New Year.
