How dare you suggest such a thing.
With so much hunger, suffering and strife in the world, it's nice to know that some people get their priorities right.

NB: Ebay wouldn't accept my bid of 50p.

He didn't hurt my feelings because I don't care. He was banned for rubbing people up the wrong way. We're here to talk about a marquee not to put up with sacasic whittle and purposeful goading for his own personal satisfaction. It's happening way too much these days and I can't see why people feel the need to do it.

Re: Save the marquee!!!

ukgser.com has gone a similar way. What used to be banter has become people taking offence for the sake of taking offence and others trolling.

Sadly he took it too far, what was banter became a petty war on words.

He's only banned for 24 hours, so hopefully all will be good tomorrow.

Anyway, back to the thread please guys!

If you know of anyone wanting it please do send them the link above

A sticky type post would've been better in hindsight but I wasn't expecting it to end like this. I just wanted to start a thread about what to do with the marquee. That decision has now been made (eBay) so luckily this thread has come to an end I'ld say so maybe a thread lock would be in order

The reason why so many mods were involved was purely coincidental. Three mods were involved in the discussion and it was three mods plus other members who were getting trolled by one member. Moderators are only human and will react the same way as anybody who gets shown disrespect, so what is to be done? Do we ignore it and get complaints from members who say we are not doing enough to deal with it or do we ban them for a short or long time in an effort to try to send a message to stop members ruining threads and discussions by blatantly provoking people for either fun or to make some sort of point to pass the time.

I can only apologise if some find that disagreeable but the only real solution would be if members (mods included) just try to be nice to others and only write stuff that's genuinely helpful

Re: Save the marquee!!!

So it seems everyone had the same amount of trouble with thinking of ideas as we did backstage.

It's on ebay now as pointed out - and I can't see a better resolution being reached within the next week.

Of course next year, if situations have changed - we can see about buying it back again - but for now - let's just hope someone buys it!

Locked.
