I will give this 5 minutes before it's either locked or deleted.

Either way, I still find it funny that Irate Ian or threads about Irate Ian are still able to cause so much panic in the ranks.

Why do I only give this thread 5 minutes? Well there's 2 threads already locked despite the fact they don't contravene the sites simple rules:

No personal abuse or threats - No abuse or threats in either
No racist comments - Couldn't see anything wrong in either
No comments that are potentially libellous - I sense a theme developing here
Post new threads in the right forum on the board - Given the pub is the place to talk about everything else, and that there was no racist, or potentially libelous posts, no pornography and no overly sexual explicit material I would say this was the right forum
Keep threads generally on topic Certainly no deviation. In one thread there was no replys
Let the swear filter do its job - no swearing in either

So for all the rubbish spouted about following the basic site rules it appears that there is one important one missing, and it's about time it was written down.

It's our site. If you don't like it **** off!

In the old days a crap thread was allowed to be ignored and drift into page 2.

Seems quite fair to me ...What would you have us do , let the whole place rum amok...Let every whimsical guys bad mood day effect us all...let havoc rule, maybe let every poster who happens to get out of the wrong side of the bed have carte blanche to do as he feels fit....Ridiculous....There has to be some kind of rules..For sure they will not suit all. Have you a better plan to keep 800 posters happy 24/7..and to be adaptable to all their constant mood changes and wishes...I doubt it .

I agree that you need to rules to be able to keep things in check, but I'm not objecting to there being rules. I'm objecting to threads being locked that haven't broke the rules.

I would like to make a complaint. You say you will not tolerate abuse etc. but ayshire blue called me GAY, when he left neg rep for like the 6th time. If calling someone a flids not banter then calling someone gay certainly isn't.

Too many double standards if you ask me, however he'll probably get a pat on the back and tea.

How will I see when this matter has been attended to?

Rules are made to be adjusted and broken by some...I doubt if we stayed here till kingdom come we would please all...We have spent a considerable time recently trying to update the FAQ in the quick links dropdown but alas I am sure we probably have still missed out a million reasons why we are still not perfect.

Now as you know, I spend far too much time on this site, but this is the first time I've even seen this FAQ (well put together by the way - MtS I presume), so I'm sure I can't be the only one.

Mightn't I suggest that similar to a lot of other internet forums, this is placed as a header to the forums, or as sticky somewhere to highlight it to all.

Ack-shirley it was mostly put together by SBH with discussions with the other owners. We do try..see!

We will make it a sticky somewhere mate.

This thread locking is a joke...

SZ is a website for doing what we do best - supporting Southend as one community - why come on here for arguments and what not!?
