Seb its always good when a villain like you and ou maaaike repent and shows a brief moment of compassion.
However you are of course entirely wrong about moderation here. This board is moderated very well. We have minimal interference which is great. It allows other villains such as rooitwit and black udder to continue with us!
Some of us know a board where they moderated a host of posters off the board and the pals of these guys left in disgust. Posts were interferred with and moved and all the ducks had to be in a row. It was sanitary but boring.The result was they were left witha lot of obsequies dead ducks 9not all) posting there who behaved exactly as they were told to do listening to exactly what the baa ass laid down as law! We have some of these bored ss moles visiting us from time to time too cowardly and scared to reveal themselves lest they fall foul off the gestapo running the show. Man how pathetic is that what a laught though
We had a guy here called Bokkilla who was a nasty piece of work - not in this case a dispicable ss mole. After consistent and continual abuse he was banned. That to me is the criteria. Consistent and continual abuse with no redeeming qualities.
Sebastien we are not a vicars tea party here. Great fun is to be had through a litle argie bargie and I particulary enjoy taking down chest beating sharkies like ou maaaikie etc. Take Moz and Saffex. Getting along fine now. A mod could have interferred and one or other could be gone by now depending on the bias of the mod - if one was on ss board and suffering their very immature and biased moderation. Generally and for the vast majority of cases the board itself sorts things out. We are fortunate here that our Mod has a good sense of how to manage the board.
No the board is well moderated.
As to Jantjes all here, especially those who have lost fathers, have comapssion for him. However that does not equate to the full reason why jantjes is playing poorly. The concern about jantjes for me and a number of others has always been his decision making. Has he the head to play flyhalf. Take his passing - some great ones but many hospital ones - very poor passes. This could indicate he does not have the mind to make those judgement calls that well. Could he be trying to play like King Carlos but without quite have the rugby brain to do so?
So lets not get too teary eyed by the criticism of Jantjes and use the death of his father as the BIG reason.
He has cost us a least too games thus far. We might be topping the S Conference right now!!. I am hoping Grant will be back soon.
Can jantjes come back? Well who knows - he does have talent but he simply has to prove he has the head for the position he occupies - which more than any other position on the field requires a rugby brain.
