Just a friendly reminder about the rules. In a nutshell, don't be a dickhead or a dumbass! It's easy during times of turmoil combined with the boredom of the off season to get overly emotional but remember that while we may all have differing opinions we are all here as Warriors fans.

Be respectful of each other. Argue the post, not the poster. No name calling. No off topic posts about ethnicity or WW2! No trolling people who like to discuss ethnicity or WW2.

Ban hammer has been swung this week. Twice :arghh::arghh:. Very very rarely happens.

Enjoy your time here and if you have any questions, complaints or comments feel free to PM an admin or post below.

PS this thread isn't a free for all but will have it own off shoot in the Bog somewhere.

Been a spate of homophobic posts lately. Just a reminder that such posts are an instant 1 week ban. This day and age such posts are no longer acceptable. Feel free to speak like that in your own personal life but it will not be tolerated here.

If you are unsure of the site rules please go to the following link for a refresh.

The point of the post is that homophobes often hold that gays are soft. Roberts was not soft.

One of my favourite things I heard someone say recently “Being called a ‘H’ or a ‘F’ isn’t an insult anymore, my neighbour is gay and he built his house himself which I couldn’t do- plus he can beat the shit outta me”
Point being that being gay doesn’t make one less manly - never really got that stereotype

My closest friend is gay.
We grew up together.. We lived in a dog eat dog suburb back in the eighties.

There is not too many people that would have the needed to make any type of slur towards him.

He is a builder by trade and a mean SOB to go with it.

Homophobia is in my humble opinion as bad as racism...

Having said that.... Try being the straight guy at a party.

Been there done that, strangely I always got a lot of respect and no pressure. But I preferred to hang with the Lesbians, always fun to watch straight guys try and pick up on them and get savagely cut down.

I remember one of the guy's on here (SURFIN) saying he once got a ban for what ever reason, and everytime he tried logging back in, he was redirected to some PORN site......
Lol that's hilarious!!
Have worked with a few gay people over the year's, great guy's and gal's, in fact one of them was my boss for sometime, and now a great personal friend of our family, just normal people IMO. that happen to like the same sex. No big thing these day's.

Is there a rule against people hijacking threads and dragging them down with repetitive crap? I know its probably a subjective call but the good work of the majority can be undone by a few very quickly. It definitely reduces the enjoyment of what is a well run place.

What did you expect?
Considering this was back in the early 90s and I was young and dumb, my expectations were from not much, through to being ignored as the outsider, or treated as fair game by the local bullies. Just like every other party I went to. My comment was that I was treated with respect and no pressure, was not a dig at their being gay, but at my being the outsider.

People are always welcome to message an admin with any concerns or ideas. I personally only come on here during the evening by which time a thread could have taken 20 different tangents but they so all get deleted or moved and repeat offenders are banned from threads or from the site. Nobody wants to read rubbish.

Drop me a line bro...
