It's like Laz saying he hopes a player gets a career threatening injury....it's not nice- but it's not an offense....
Tbf to Harry...I don't know how the role and stool stuff started...but I don't take any notice of it...but if someone was offended by it (which is legitimate in certain personal circumstances) then it should stop tbh

Aye it'd be offensive if you've known someone commit suicide. But it's just dangerous to be hammering away at that for over a year when you don't know how the other person is taking it and what's going on in their life (something I've realised in the last couple of years).

There's been some high profile cases where they've told people to kill themselves, and they have, and the instigator is up for manslaughter

I know what you mean ...but I'd say it's clear in his posts that he's taking the piss and not actually suggesting anyone kill themselves...
Maybe I've missed a few of his posts but if he's clearly implying someone kill themselves I'd have to take myself off this forum for obvious reasons!

Boys boys boys, I go away and get all hippie and live and let live and you start a riot. Come on.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

like most on here, i can read a post and see a windup and play along,peeps do it for attention mostly, some comments /tastless jokes are funny on first glance, but after it sinks in then shame sets in on the fact you laughed etc.
the day after the arena bombing,i went in work.In the stores dept all the heating engineers were banded together ,when 1 lad said to the only muslim engineer at the company, you`ll be needing a new suit for your brothers funeral then wont you. All laughed but then as the smoke cleared i felt bad for the engineer,bad about laughing,and bad will towards the lad who said it.
So much so i pulled the lad to 1 side and tore him a new arsehole,He honestly never had any idea how the engineer would be feeling about comment (probally didn`t care joys of being under 25)but i left him with no illusions how i felt about it. and the rest of the group for laughing
the power of words is the real weapon we have against injustice/predjustice and just plain arseholes, ban somebody and you achive nothing, you silence the messenger not the message.

No idea if you can or if the forum system has a warning system Alf, but if it does you could use that basically if someone starts up as mentioned they get a warning after a certain number of warnings they get banned either for ever or a certain length of time. Its been so long since I have seen the back end of the forum software so I dont know if that is possible.
