I was chatting happily away to someone yesterday - differing opinions, like; I was worrying about the squad/results/tactics/fear of being dragged into the relegation mix etc, he was in the "Don't panic, we're in good shape" club, all good stuff, diff'rent strokes and all that - and he spits the dummy and starts with the abuse out of the clear blue sky. Gave him a couple of opportunities to act his age (old ****, this is) and retract the namecalling but he spat further so I ended up telling him what a sh*tc*nt he is and he blocked me. Boo hoo. Looking at this site though, it seems he's got form for being a pr*ck, so... but it was disappointing, especially from a grown-ass man with snow on the roof. I've had loads of convos on Twitter and here without it turning sh*tty. Some of the very best discussions on this forum involving the likes of Pinky, HD1, Chuck, 'Ouston and other cantankerous old buggers who won't give way have been as fascinating as they were because they were able to conduct themselves passionately without spilling over into abuse. Even someone on here bit my head off yesterday when I wasn't getting at them at all. Perhaps those who purposely avoid match-threads - especially when we lose - or social networking sites at emotive points like deadline day or, again, match-days when we lose have got it the right way around.
