I think there's been a bit too much navel-gazing going on. I am not aware of the finer points of law wrt libel etc but it seems to me that the WT/MT are worrying far too much about something that might never happen. As has been pointed out, there are many more far more "liberal" boards that are never troubled by this subject.

I fear that this kind of censorship will lead to a sterilised board where no-one dares say anything remotely contentious for fear of being "charged", "prosecuted" and found "guilty" in secret by the WT/MT without so much as an opportunity to defend themselves or answer the charges.
Such a policy as laid down in the seed post of this thread goes contrary to all of the principles of a fair and democatic society and, is symptomatic of a wider malaise where we see individual freedoms continually eroded.

Some people need to grow thicker skins.

Or try posting on visordown where they don't give a stuff.

If you don't want to accept this, take a look at what's happened to some posters on Sheffield FC forum. This is real, it's fact and it's NOT going to go away. Sad perhaps, but true.

Visordown hasn't had the troubles of Sheffield FC and manages fine with little intervention, as I havent seen the posts that caused this I'm struggling to see just what could be said to offend. But i stand by the comments that people need a thicker skin when on a forum tbh

I don't know where the illusion of ever having complete freedom of speech in the UK came from. We've never had it at any time in our history and it doesn't exist anywhere else in the world.

Indeed. I'd invite you to say that to my face, but we all know you southern shandy drinkers are too soft to come up here to the far north and we'd get lost somewhere south of Leeds.

Sheffield FC? That's you outed then - you should've kept quiet. Seriously...there's a world of difference between here and a bunch of football fans elsewhere. I think some latitude is in order tbh.
