Sadly, recent developments have caused me to lose faith in the integrity of the site.

I'm not going to be soppy about things or refuse to join in but will probably limit my posts.

I wish I could explain my reasons fully, but I respect the fact that pms should remain private. My partial withdrawal follows a resignation and some admissions that have been made, both privately and openly enough on the main board.

I'm still fully behind the Whites and continue to value the contributions of very many of the members of the site. I enjoy reading the honest, friendly, passionate and amusing posts of fellow Boltonians. Most members are decent, kind and reasonable in their observations.

Pretty much where I am at the moment. A lot of the fun has gone, and I'm not sure it'll ever come back.

Me too. I suspect this will be a long list.
That said, like the internet as a whole there is much to be ignored.

Can someone shed some light on what prompted this? Understand details may need to be limited but it’s sounding like something we should all be made aware of.

Come on chaps lets not give up on this site! I thought we were getting back to some kind of normality in the last few weeks so lets all try to stay positive.

We all need to draw a line under our individual issues and move on for the good of the site. I know xmiles and Okocha feel they have been unfairly tarnished with all the talk of fake accounts but we are going round in circles here.

Can we all get back to just talking bollocks and get back to bantering like we used to please? All the petty little arguments between certain well known posters needs to stop as well.

It's not me that needs to elaborate.

 It could all be settled if the guilty party were to do the decent thing and let everyone know the truth, but it is clear that that person has decided not to.

 Suffice to say that xm and I are innocent victims of game-playing that has broken my trust in the site's integrity. 

Despite this, I'm not going to break the confidentiality of a pm sent to me.

I'll continue to read posts but will limit mine.

Norpig, Bonce, Fin, Wander.....I'm sorry I can't say more. Best wishes.

I find the accusations of some people having dual accounts very annoying when no proof is offered to the rest of us.

If I had been targeted in this way I would be fuming.

Okocha seems to be refering to other things that I am unaware of, probably because I don't post much and have always felt out of the loop on this site anyway.

I was for many years  one of the main posters (BUNBURY) on the Mavis website,  where there was loads of daft banter and fun until it was sadly closed down.

We need to get the fun back into this place so that means no endless back and forth on threads (you know who i mean) arguing about the smallest details that bore the arse off everyone else reading.

I agree.

We all have views and opinions, but we don't want to be beaten over the head over some minute detail, just for the sake of someone who loves an arguement.

Are there any delights in Morecambe? I haven't been for years and used to go with my Granny for day trips and it was always a bit grim even then and that was the late 70's

No, it's Blackpool that's grim.

I remember happy caravan holidays back in the 50's in Morecambe.

God, I'm old.

Last time I went to Morecambe was to have a look at Sambo's Grave. Had some great times up there on holiday.

bo's Grave


There is a poignant reminder of Lancashire's involvement in the slave trade at Sunderland Point - Sambo's Grave. 

Integrity 09d9e2e13403fe6c84c592c3d5f884ebbe2827a7
Sambo's grave is a memorial to a young, black slave who is thought to have arrived in 1736 at the port with his master.
He was born in Africa and taken first to the West Indies as a slave before being brought to Lancaster by his master.
He was taken ill and died near a local inn at Sunderland Point.
He was buried in an unmarked grave but in 1795 a schoolteacher - Rev Watson - raised money to erect a memorial to Sambo and penned the elegy on the grave.
Integrity 9b602dfe75aed4172f57fc487bc07305c0f54654

The epitaph reads:


Full sixty years the angry winter's wave
Has thundering dashed this bleak and barren shore
Since Sambo's head laid in this lonely grave
Lies still and ne'er will hear their turmoil more.
Full many a sandbird chirps upon the sod,
And many a moonlight elfin round him trips
Full many a summer's sunbeam warms the clod
And many a teeming cloud upon him drips.
But still he sleeps - till the awakening sounds,
Of the Archangel's trump new life impart,
Then the Great Judge his approbation founds,
Not on man's colour but his worth of heart.

If you should ever go to Sunderland point double check the tide times as the road gets cut off at high tide.

Yes. People pull a face when I mention Morecambe, but I've always had a soft spot for it. Bumped into Thora Hird once, and what a lovely lady.

Sunderland is unique in the United Kingdom as being the only community to be on the mainland and yet dependent upon tidal access. The only vehicular access to the village is via a single-track road from Overton 1.5 miles (2.4 km) away crossing a tidal marsh. The road is covered by water at every high tide.

Sunderland Point's more interesting than who paid for the Reebok Stadium and financed the club for the best part of twenty years and how the club's being financed now, is it?

Actually the history of Sunderland Point is very interesting as is the history of Barrow Bridge. What's the connection?

No disrespect to anyone, but it may jog a memory for the old farts on here, I remember Bazooka Joe bubblegum, but I also remember an equally good one, Called Sambo. It was a black gum, and it was in a yellow wrapper. Anyone else remember it?
