1 A word from Breadman. on Thu Sep 14 2017, 17:41

This arrived from Breaders this evening. I post it in full.

Afternoon matey,

Hope you're ok. 

I've just had a scan through Nuts and saw that you said you've got a few personal bits and bobs to deal with at the mo, and I hope everything's ok and it's nothing too sinister. I'm not prying, I just hope everything's ok, mate.

And cheers for the thread about yours truly. As you've already surmised, I'm not really interested in coming back and you can copy and paste this bit by way of an explanation if you like:

I used to love contributing to Nuts. I put a lot of effort into trying to write funny stuff which would hopefully put a smile on peoples' faces. And I'm happy to admit that I possibly strayed too far over the boundary of what could be deemed appropriate on occasion but that's just me.

However, some of the moderation decisions made me start to question whether it was worth bothering.

I was hung out to dry for supposedly dragging one of the mods' partners into the debate and it was deemed a personal attack. It wasn't. I apologised at the time but stand by what I said. I didn't abuse the person in question and I am still to this day scratching my head at some of the comments posted by the site's admin team about it all.

And that was the beginning of the end for me.

I have absolutely no doubt that a lot of good work is done by decent people behind the scenes at Nuts for precious little reward. Without them, there would be no Nuts. However, if they continue with their seemingly arbitrary moderation policy and public attacks on contributors, the site can go only one way. Down.

But I honestly can't see that changing anytime soon because of the characters involved. Believe it or not, I do not have a personal vendetta against Sluffy but his lack of self-awareness when criticising others for doing precisely the same things he does is beyond the pale and it's not something I can idly sit by and watch without commenting.

And that's what got me banned.

So thanks to everyone who's asked about me. I particularly hope Rammy's doing ok after his recent traumas and that was the one time in recent months when I regretted being banned from the site because I wanted to offer him my best.

I've got no plans to come back, cap in hand, grovelling to be let back in, as life's too short for that and as I kept getting told, "it's only the internet afterall" so I'm not taking it too seriously and am perfectly happy where I am now.

We've bought a place in Spain and the plan is to sell up and move over there full time at some point in the next couple of years.

I'll always keep a weather eye on Nuts and I offer everyone sincere best wishes for the future but you won't be hearing from me again anytime soon.

Adios,

Dave Bread.

Bonce,

If you are in contact with Bredders - please thank him for his concern and good wishes for a speedy return to health after my recent surgery. I appreciate his good wishes.
I'm slowly getting back to normal and hope to be at the next home game if everything keeps on improving

Rammy

I won't need to boys. He keeps a weather eye on Nuts,and will be well aware of your,or anyone else's good wishes.
It is a real shame. He's an intelligent,and very funny poster,of long standing. Acerbic,yes,but always relevant and entertaining.
As it stands,there's a Bumchum vacancy. Start pitching.

We need to think carefully. Replacing Breadman won't be easy. We don't want to elect our own version of little Sammy Lee.

Message to Bread.

If you've truly got fed up of Nuts then fair enough, otherwise stop being a wuss, suck up what you didn't like and get your sorry arse back on here.

It isn't about being seen to be a winner or a loser in life, its about having a laugh on a piddly little internet footy forum.

You don't like me, or the way I post - boo hoo!

I'm not going to change and I doubt very much you will either but if you can manage to cut out the incessant personal abuse there's no reason why we couldn't just about tolerate each other.

It might well end in tears but I don't bear grudges and if I'm prepared to give you another chance, then at least have the balls to give it another go too.

If you think Nuts is going to fold without you - then you are very wrong - but Nuts is more of a fun place with you aboard than not.

So how about it?

Not sure the phrase certain limitations is going to help, just say they are allowed to come back but as soon as they step out of line they go again

At the end of the day we are all grown ups and should by now know how to behave.

The fact of the matter is that some don't - or believe they've done nothing wrong.

Even then if people can let things go and move on there isn't a problem - but some can't do that either.

For whatever reason it as become personal.

Then you get all sorts of problems like "why did you ban me for calling joe blogs a cunt, when Natasha issues death threats and nothing is done", etc, etc.

Bread, like it or not, had major issues with me and more lately Karly.

In the end we simply had enough of it.

ALL of us who Admin the site in our own time, for free.

It was a unanimous vote.

What gives anyone the right to be abusive to someone else for something trivial said or done on the internet?

We do try to be as fair as we can, maybe we get it wrong once in a while but we certainly wouldn't have got it wrong if someone hadn't been stirring some sort of shit in the first place would we?

Breads not stupid, he knows what he is doing - he even admits he goes too far at times in his email to Bonce.

If he or Scott did decide to give it another go they must know by now that a) Nuts can manage just fine without them and b) that we've got the balls to ban them if we must and will do so again if need be.

If they want to behave and enjoy Nuts like the rest of us do, then they are most welcome to return and we would be very pleased to see them again - but if however they think they are above the laws that the rest of us work too, then there's no much point in them returning at all.

I think that's fair and reasonable - hope everyone else does too.

Not quite sure what any of you actually do.

For example, who do I go to with a sex discrimination complaint (bullery)?

Who is the designated first aider?

Boncey is the first aider, anyone who's needed as much as he has over the years must have picked up alll there is to know by now

Are you complaining there's too little sex discrimination on here?

As for first aider, (and if Bonce is unavailable) its Norpig at the hospital (remember to get him to wash his hands first before treating you though!).

Very Happy

Don't worry, as soon as he's fed up of all those Spanish Senoritas, sun, sangria and golden beaches he'll be back here pronto.

Good points.

And who is our designated driver?

I'm not having Norpig again after the disgraceful episode last Christmas.

One handed driving is dangerous!
