Presumably this forum is owned by Ole media too? Well over on F365 they've dicked about with the forum software to such an extent that inter-post ads block whole pages, certain functionality doesn't work, buttons don't work, the page drains battery and data like you wouldn't believe due to adverts all over the place constantly reloading. To get a half usable experience you have to install all kinds of ad-blockers and scripts. It's ridiculous. The activity on what was once a thriving forum has fallen dramatically... after a couple of false dawns in terms of people independently knocking up forums for the beleaguered userbase, but have never really taken off.

It's a shitshow so yeah, you'll probably end up with a few friendly refugees :thumbup:
We had a problem with spam once. Hundreds of Russian spambots would join every week and while their chat was better than that of most posters here, there was an awful lot of it. Through a well planned and executed campaign I managed to put enough pressure on admin to get the issue resolved. That was the day I saved the board from spam.

We too had a thriving and very well used lifeboat forum set up by one of the users but it was shut down by the mods here who were fearful of attacks and that it would become more popular than this place. Nothing could have been further from the truth however - we just wanted to be left alone to enjoy chatting about rugby and other interesting topics.

Do not express opinions against the general bored view, otherwise you should be fine.

and if you can slag off Globus at least one in every three posts you will be considered a hoot.

Anyone other kiwis/SH folk notice even though the time on your profile is set to NZ or equivalent it is still an hour forward?

Showing 00.59 here and its 11.59

Might be a day light savings thing

Hello Posters. English,British, Sale fan. That is the introductions done with now and I now have a login to join the discussion. I have been reading live match topics and the brexit posts here and decided to register. I've disagreed with a number of opinions expressed here but rarely ever had the urge to join a forum to counter views before.
Hopefully its all good chat.

and would toga stop registering, denying it's his latest incarnation, then being identified as such within 6-10 posts. Get over it - you are not wanted.

Post subject:  Re: HOW TO JOIN - Attention all would be new posters

I really didn't think that was Toga.

Author:  Womack [ Fri Oct 26, 2018 1:54 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: HOW TO JOIN - Attention all would be new posters

Toga wouldn't have bothered claiming to be a Sale fan or creating a pointless backstory.

The only recent poster who has seemed Togaesque is ChipSpike.

And why is he not wanted anyway?

Who, Toga? Regular meltdowns, he's a shit bloke with some very unpleasant opinions, turns everything into a deeply personal shitfight, and had a Dozy style threatening of mods episode when he was banned a while back.

His presence is a major negative for the board.

Anyway he came back again under a new login.

Any 'new' English poster who comes in and posts 50+ times a day is likely to be Toga. Armand Aleg was clearly him. Not 100% sure about Blind Hookah but filled some of the normal M.O.

I can say, in all truth, I've never, ever posted as another. Globus I am and shall stay that way. I have now had two holidays. No moaning from me.

he also immediately applies for a new user name after his latest incarnation has been zapped. Ah well

Fantastic, an arrogant, swarmist with a chip on his shoulder. You’ll do well.
