I can’t deny I was disappointed at a number of posts on the death of our Queen. I get and understand there’s differing viewpoints but for the life of me I can’t understand why supporters of Republicanism chose to post on such a thread. Start your own about the virtues of such beliefs.

I found it equally disappointing my thread was pulled. The strength of any organisation is to be able to accept criticism as well as praise. Sadly this doesn’t appear to be tolerated on here. Something I would urge the owner and admin to reflect on.my initial post had over 40 likes- a record for me! Tended to demonstrate there was significant support for my viewpoint Thanks one and all.

I have been active on this board for around 15 years now- under 2 usernames. I have got involved with the sponsorship of players under the FMTTM banner. Will I continue this? Debatable.

I do recognise I am somewhat Marmite. Some respond positively to my threads and posts - others not! Hey that’s democracy and I respect that.

One thing we are United in is being Boro supporters - and long may that continue.

So for the time being - goodbye. I have no doubt this thread will be pulled so hope as many as possible get the chance to read it in case it does!

I pulled the thread not because of the opening post - but because it would have been too complicated to try and remove all the many posts I wanted to delete (as lots of them were replies). I thought the thread had probably served its purpose as it had been displayed all evening.
I wasn't around yesterday afternoon or night (just an hour at tea time) and then not back til late evening.

Bit dramatic mate, but enjoy your time away. Not sure why you need to announce it, just taking time off quietly may have been a better option? Just my opinion and I mean no offence as always like your posts, most of which I generally agree with.
Yes can be classed as dramatic I agree. The point I specifically wanted to raise was the pulling of a thread I honestly thought was reasonable- and I know Nobby in particular would be wondering where I had gone to!

I certainly would wonder where you had gone Nosmo and sincerely I hope you reconsider your stance. Who else is going to call me an uneducated idiot and keep me on my toes - there is already a queue forming 😕

It's just a daft message board for a laugh at the end of the day, but if it has affected you then take a break. Do come back though and bring Noel Edmonds with ya 👍

All the best Nosmo

I must admit, I have questioned my involvement on this board and do I want to be associated with people who can make crass comments on the passing of an elderly lady.

Yesterday was an all time low for this once great community.

I agree Norman.
Posters who think it's OK to mock the death of another human being, or to use it as a means of political point scoring need to take a good hard look at themselves. Out of order 👎

I respect your decision nosmo. This board can be toxic at times, you would have thought that with everything we have all been through in the last 2 and half years people would be a bit more kind and understanding but sometimes it seems things have gone the opposite way. I love this board but will never get involved in any toxic threads- life is way too short and precious for that so enjoy your time away mate and I look forward to seeing you posting again in the future UTMB👍

I have recently decided to remove myself from various online medium as it is detrimental to my own mental health. The pure haltered amongst people is unreal and I get dragged into stuff I really don't need to be. I recommend people read or listen to the book "Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman" We on average live for only 4000 weeks.. so don't waste time.

Got to agree with this; I'd far rather you stayed and Nobby left.

I’ve dipped into a few other Football messageboards this evening. I’ve read the same sort of stuff. There are even a couple of similar flouncing posts and yes “new lows” This isn’t unique to this board. Everybody writes according to their emotions and have different opinions.

I believe the mods do a great job moderating this Board. Course posts get deleted and inevitably upset the authors. I feel this Board strikes a good balance though between One Boro which is over policed (ask @newyddion) and the “other place” which has very little moderation and therefore an unpleasant read.

I sincerely hope Nosmo hasn’t got a pet. I feel this place provides him a vital service - an opportunity to vent his spleen and frustration. Without it I’m not sure what he is going to do to let rip. He will be back within a week.
