Or have we seen the last of him. And what about Munchy?

This board is going downhill fast. Being run by Scousers isn't good! :)

Maybe they don't want to come back from the naughty step and I wouldn't blame them. Was wondering why this board has felt like tumbleweed the last few days, your killing it guys. Two posters who's enthusiasm for posting is to be admired. This board is starting to mirror the club. Bad decisions being made by the people in charge and slowly dying. Maybe time to close it down.

I think the board has been quiet for a few weeks now, long before Munchy and NS were banned.

I frequently ask folk, including ex posters, why they don't post. Some have found other places to go, some have just stopped following the club. The most common reasons I'm given though are "it's too negative" and posters "don't respect folk with a different opinion".

In the end it's up to the moderators to decide on the tone and clientelle they want. They pay the fees.

I think it's just that there nothing happening at the club worth talking about. The Football's crap, the whole atmosphere around the club is crap, the drink, the pies and the service is crap. We're doomed, doomed I tell you.

For me, not being from the city and having nobody to talk to about Carlisle it's been a really important and informative way of getting to know the club.
I'm not really interested in lots of the stuff on here. I'm generally just interested in talking about the game really or hearing others views on the match.
As a newcomer I have asked fans I meet on the train or before games if they post on this forum and what they think of it.
I would say I've spoken to around 15-20 people over the past couple of years so not vastly representative.
But the answer is always the same, which is that it's so negative and that people have given up on it.
The brief conversation usually goes along the lines of that people aren't happy with the way the club's going, aren't happy with some of the owners, want to see better football but that it's their club and they want to support it and that on the Forum that viewpoint is often derided.

One of the reasons I come on here less and less is because of people like Barry. I'm sick and tired of reading his toss.

This is a place for debate and conversation about CUFC (and beyond), not a platform for that racist and homophobic prick to tell us how hard he is.

The moderators were completely right to ban him. Get behind the mods you cnuts.

I have to echo what the people you have spoke to seem to be saying NCF. I am more of a reader than a poster and it is fair to say I log on most days to read threads, with the match thread being the main one.

What I struggle to understand on this forum, is the apparent culture of digging out fans that want to show any support for the club. We all agree the club is stagnant at present, and everyone would back new investment and a change of ownership. What I honestly cannot get my head around in the constant derision of fans who want to:

a) Go to games.
b) Would dare to suggest the team played well in a game.
c) Would actually clap the players after the game.

Its a small minority on this board that do it, but it is constant, and truth be told pretty boring.

From the outside looking in, here's a couple of observations (I don't post much but I do read frequently)

Sorry Barry but you and a couple of others are doing to this board what you did to the old footymad one.
The conversation is immediately strangled and/or hijacked on virtually every thread at some point by a couple of posters and any differences in opinion descend into a slanging match.

When there's a monopoly by a couple of opinionated people on threads why would anyone else bother to contribute, your effectively only talking to one or two other posters within 6 posts on every thread. Nobody comes on here to post just to put their head above the parapet.

It stifles any other contributions to the forum, similar to the people who seem to take offence to Ibogain's and others humour posts.
I find them hilarious but most end up with him/the poster being insulted quite quickly I assume because they don't like or 'get' the funny side, so again, the snipers are the only ones left reading/posting, so if you can't come in peace and post without ridicule/argument....why bother?

Just because someone 'turbo posts' doesn't mean it's worth reading, simply posting doesn't make the board interesting.

The club are crap, the atmosphere around the place is dire and outlets like this are a reflection of it all too, one or two don't really help lift the mood.
Nothing personal, I have nothing against anyone on here btw, just an observation.

If you can't beat em.... shoot em.

I think a temporary ban is fair enough, there have to be some standards otherwise the board would rapidly degenerate into the illegal and libellous.

Hopefully munchy & NS will be back in due course though, I am always interested to read what both of them have to say whether I agree with it or not.

Agree with the comments above about the relentless negativity being off-putting. The day I stop wanting the team to win whenever they are playing will be the time I pack it in altogether.

As Mod’s we get very few ‘Reports’ come through. We do tend to pick up on stuff quite quickly, but can’t see everything.

We’re fairly relaxed in general, we believe you’re all Adults (Mostly!) and as such all have your own beliefs - one thing I’ve always been for is the right for somebody to voice their opinion regardless of wether you agree or not, I disagree with plenty of folks views but they’re entitled to discuss them. That’s what a Messageboard is about for me.

Very occasionally there’ll be a post that crosses a line. When there is, we will act. Bans are occasionally used, and we try to make them a fair length.

We don’t want to Ban folk, but sometimes we’re left with no option. They can come from a post on here, private correspondence with an individual or other methods, no Ban is just handed out. They’re discussed in the Mod’s WhatsApp Group, and the majority view decides. We as Mod’s do sometimes disageee on things, but respect that the majority wins.

I do think folk sometimes forget that we do actually pay to keep the site running! It’s not a huge amount, but if we hadn’t stepped up when Mike moved on it would’ve disappeared.

Every Club needs a Messageboard, and the Users make them. Yes, there can be negativity, but we can’t force the dialogue!

Happy posting folks!

Not quite Lakeland. You know as well as anyone that we’ve edited/removed/locked threads/issued bans for the whole time since we took over from Deano. There just weren’t as many meltdowns/tantrums/line crossing posts back then compared to what there are currently.

We go to the meetings predominantly to ask questions on folks behalf. If you sleep better at night thinking it’s so we can be puppets for the club then that’s fine by me.
