Why add a mod who supports Utd?
The mods all act impartially when making decisions.

The people banned from Soccer are mostly spas. Who cares who they support, a spa is a spa.

I appreciate you people have more to do with your time than chase people up on their Sig's but I would like to know what the problem is as I would like to but it back as it was.
I thought you had read the sig rules. Either way, I see you've put it back to what it was already.

I hate to say this Muppet but given that you have come up a few times on Admin radars, it may be that you are getting less slack then might otherwise be extended. *shrug*. Blind eyes are turned generally but zero tolerance can also be applied. Again, it wouldnt bother me I'll ask the other admins if they know anything about it. Mods dont have the access rights to alter sigs so it cant be connected to the Soccer forum.

Anyway, as regards that forum, I dont think everyone sees it as "friendly banter" as a lot of people have told me they have stopped reading it because of the incessant in-fighting and tribalism. I'm about one complaint from laying some serious smack down but given that Gandie does a pretty good job of that all on his own I've left it be for the moment.

I'm sure glad you gave us the benefit of the doubt regarding the server... its nice to know you didnt jump to a conclusion though

Oh, I did edit the signature to begin with, I thought that was understood.

It is the sort of signature that won't automatically get noticed, but if someone complains (as happened here) and it is breaking the rules, then that'll usually sway it for me.

The aforementioned appearing on the radar and the fact that 'keano was sent home' is most likely linked to some soccer flamewar didn't help much mind you.

May I ask
  • if you think that an image of shirtless men implies homosexual content?
  • if you think that homosexual comment is something that should not be in people's sigs?
  • if you are aware that the use of the word "gay" in a perjorative or dismissive sense is offensive to a significant percentage (minority or not) of the membership of Boards.ie?
  • if you are aware that what you have said here has caused offence?

Fair comment Dev and thanks for you intervention. I take it my current sig is ok so.

I can see that point it does get a bit annoying at times but then at other time it can be very civil. I suppose different people have different cut off points .

Why did you put it back without waiting for an answer to that question?

Yoda... who said I was using it in a pejorative way? I think you are tilting at windmills to be honest!

Perhaps I should have spelt it "Ghey" as I wasnt actually thinking about any homosexual content in it. Though now that you mention it, it does kinda look like that too

Sorry I assumed it would be ok as Dev said he didn,t see a problem with it and I didn,t know who had edited it. If you want me to edit it awaiting a final decision I will.
