I’ve been a member here since day one, this forum has been a part of my life (a small one, but one still) for 15 years...Everyone knows there was a period in time where Rant where was literally the best football forum on the internet. Lots of members and the banter/chat was first class.
Over the last year or so I'm sure everyone has noticed I've not contributed as much and too be honest and I’m barely hanging on anymore. It’s just so fucking tiresome with all the snipping crap that fills every thread. As most will remember, I was first inline for the banter and piss takes, it's what made this place great. However, the snipping and wuming is fucking shite, boring, lame and fucking pathetic. I’ve always thought that was what made Rant so ‘special’, it was a place where anything went; I now believe that’s the thing that’s going to cause it’s death.
If you have shared your opinion previously, e.g you hate Mourinho, you hate the Glazers, we're too defensive, too many dross players, players are out of position we spent £10 BILLION pound, LVG was a genius, LVG was a cunt, how we still so shite after spending hundreds of millions.... etc etc then you DO NOT NEED TO REPEAT IT FOR EVERY SINGLE POST. You already know who you are doing it so it's pointless naming you and calling you out. Just fucking stop it you are ruining what's left of this forum for everyone else. If you have a personal dislike for another specific member then just fucking ignore them on here and do not waste your time engaging with them, it's not fucking rocket science is it?? This will be the one and only warning.
So it's come to the point now where I have to make a decision. Do I walk away or do Alf and I moderate this forum and start banning people for the reasons stated above? I'm thinking It’s time to do something I thought we would never have to; moderate this place. It’s on it’s last legs
On a positive note, I am trying to liaise with Ed and get this forum fixed once and for all.I know how annoying it currently is. Who knows, maybe we can act now and save this place and maybe get some fresh blood. I'm asking Ed, to advertise this place on his popular Twitter account to see if we can attract some traffic, but things need to change for us to do that..who knows we may have another Nonski and Cal just waiting to join!
