Question FAO Admin(s)

Hey Chaps

why has Stewgog been banned. ok he was a bit excitable in his retort but you must take this into context. some remarks were deflamatory from a certain point of view.

And this is a democratic society, can we not all behave like grown ups and get along and at least accept that some people do shoot from the hip...

I beleive the issue has passed anyway, there has been a sort of peace that has been brokered to end the civil war...

pip pip

He was a bit offensive though :s, maybe just a firm telling off from an admin would have been better than a full on ban.

It kinda reinforces the belief that anyone who doesn't have a certain Anglo-Centric opinion isn't tolerated.

I think I missed most of this argument, but I think that unless people say something illegal, then I adopt the old argument that I may not agree with someone, but I defend their right to say it.

That said, if he was given warnings by the mods which he ignored, its mprobably fair enough.

don't start as well :p

I think they were just setting a precedent that offensive behaviour will not be tolerated. However, a stern warnnig would have been more appropriate...i'm sure liam and Cardiff are more than capable of taking Stewgog's comments on the chin....

hahah, Diolch yn fawr.

Thankyou very much

Now, if only I could model Cardiff City centre with some amazing forms of architecture. Wouldn't something by Santiago Calatrava look simply breath taking near the Millennium stadium?
