Deny the oxygen of publicity 10:30 - Nov 17 with 688 viewssaint901

Incoming rant.

Does anybody remember when Maggie Thatcher decided that the Irish terrorists (of all colours) should be denied the opportunity to explain their latest atrocity on notional TV? I think the phrase she used was as above.

I've only recently joined the active forum community here having been a lurker for a long while. I enjoy the football related pieces and learn a lot. I dabble in the financial/tax issues because that's my job and I'm vain enough to think I can add something. I have views on certain political matters and contribute there when I think I have something to say. (Feel free to ignore those views).

Unfortunately I have also dipped my toe into some of the threads dealing with alleged conspiracies doing the rounds, beginning with Covid and now moving into Climate Change. That was a mistake.

I will no longer contribute to threads alleging conspiracy or control freakery or imagined plots. Partly because opinions there are already polarised beyond reasonable debate but mainly because debating them is a form of validation that in my view is unwarranted.

Thanks for reading tot he end of this rant - as you were..

You might also want to ignore the circular Brexit discussions, and especially the frankly weird debates concerning Mason Mount and any footballers born within the P.O. postcode (bearing in mind that anywhere within the UK can be included in the P.O. postcode for some strange reason)

Think you'll find that choosing not to post about increasingly wild theories on a forum meant for football fans, is a very long way from "blind acceptance".

That I choose to debate these issues elsewhere with people who have evidence led theories and conclusions, rather than vice versa, and who do not repeat the same points time and time again in the vain hope that they gain credence that way, is not blind acceptance.

On a side note, The Day Today had the best idea on how to deal with this situation...

And you smack of a spoilt child who will say anything to get attention. Fortunately most people ignore your deliberately provocative posts.

You call me sad but you spend a great deal of your life spreading cr ap on a football forum where no one gives a damn about your anti vax conspiracy nonsense. You will probably have more luck in your new day job, stirring up hatred of Asians. The reason that thread ran so long is because DorsetIan had the patience to call out your nonsense for the BS it is.
