Have you found the quotes where he wanted us to sign Kevin Doyle? They're probably my favourites. Couple of years ago now.

Yeah, because I said that he would be a better option than Chamakh and Bendtner. Amazing that after all this time you still haven't grasped this.

Don't forget this January where he was furious that we didn't sign Mitroglu or a Mitroglu :D

Again, I said that I felt like we should have signed a Mitroglu TYPE player as we were lacking in squad depth upfront and I wanted a short term fix to see us through until this season. Hardly outlandish.

Nothing, they just don't like the fact he stirs up a bit of controversy. The mods banned me for a questionable posting style before; with a message "you've got 7 days to change or we'll ban you" or something of that ilk. The mods here are trash.

An infraction leading to a ban for calling a spade a spade, impressive stuff here from Ackter :bravo:

Says the person who thinks Giroud is useless and thinks we should be aiming for better than him? But Doyle to improve on the reserve dross we had is ok? Changeable standards there.

If anyone else wants to have a pop, feel free, hope you accept the consequences like a man.

I don't see what's so hard to understand here. You could have a better first choice than Giroud and you could have a better backup than Chamakh/Bendtner. Not exactly rocket science :D

Except he wants Giroud replaced, as there is little point signing a back up, he should be improved upon, but the logic was reversed when he wanted Doyle as a back up, not to improve the main striker.

Arsenal thread.

could be worse. could be a yid like Sy.

Come on, this isn't right.

Are you really going to let this pass?

Racism is not cool. Not only that, but the suggestion is that being Jewish is worse than being subhuman scum.

Am I right in thinking if this was said to a mod it would result in an infraction?

Depends what about. Context is King as Sy failed to realise. Sy is a persistent offender, you don't get infractions for a single, minor misplaced comment. Tobias and Peter are also serial offenders.

Dont you guys think it might be more sensible to just lock the thread rather than infracting people who make negative comments about forum moderation in it? If you keep these kind of threads open its unreasonable to expect everyone just to toe the party line and the infractions on the face of it look harsh. Yid is an offensive word and the fact it has been adopted by some Spurs fans (in the same way the N word has by some black people) doesnt change its pejorative intent or connatations IMO. I have been a moderator on a forum myself and know it can be a pretty thankless task but you really are making life hard for yourself here.

For about the first time I can remember, I agree with David Cameron!

David Cameron can be a bit of an idiot at times and is a prone to these sort of rash statements where he should really be taking a more considered view. FA and Board of Deputies of british Jews both say it shouldn't be used and a lot of Jewish people find it offensive and anti-semetic. That surely should be enough?

As well as Gizzyspop's 'Let's insult people until we get banned' draft game...I want to see this thread end when a mod bans a mod. Modwars.

And I'm not really political llama...so I'll join with you...let's get tooled up and start weeding out the socialists to ban. :D

I raise you the Tottenham Hotspurs Supports Trust, MET Police and the Populus independent survey of THFC season ticket holders, where 73% of Jewish respondents (ie, the ones who would have any reason to take offence) were in support of the term being used in their chants.

Some people taking offense is not enough - there has to be intent to cause the offense or else anyone could be prosecuted for just about anything.

Just to defend you, I remember josh saying Chamakh was the signing of the season after he scored a few goals, if search actually worked i'd find it for you :)

Yeah because Hartman was not trying to be derogatory when using the word.....

The intended offence was the suggestion that he was a Tottenham fan (just as I would be insulted to be called a Peterborough United fan) and presumably a direct reference to this thread (ie, context), not a derogatory term based on hatred of Jews.

Getting offended at something does not mean it was intended that way.

That is bollocks though, isn't it? Many people can intend no insult using n-words but it will be punished, right?

And it's not accepted in society.

May be in the UK "yid" is used very rarely and you forget that it's an actual insult.

Not racism. Not sure how you come up with that being racism. Yid meaning Spurs fan. You really are a complete and utter fool aren't you?

Yeah not exactly setting a great example with this post :D

Mods, please ban this post, he said "n-word" which I'm insulted by. I don't care about the context, he said it and it can only ever be used as an insult and is deeply offensive in any setting.

(I realise that I've also said it, hanging's too good for me).

((Oh dear, I've probably insulted someone by joking about capital punishment, I'm such an idiot))

(((Apologies to any idiots I've just offended)))
