    Does TM know about the excellent forum called United Mad where all the best and coolest United fans hang out? Maybe somebody should tell him.

    Has BurnleyArab not been given a reprieve yet? Surely he's allowed out on probation? I used to quite enjoy his rants.

    "We'd have as well not turned up today, we couldn't win that game no matter how well we played. Absolutely ridiculous decisions. Not even doubts, ridiculous decisions. Disgraceful. Nobody bothers about Dundee United, do they? It's all about Rangers, all about Rangers."

    Burnley could be a thread wrecker but he at least had a sense of humour which elevated him marginally above TM.

    What did for Burnley in the end was directly going on the rampage against moderators and when you’re already on your umpteenth warning that’s only going to end one way. And he burned his boats a wee bit by using other platforms to howl at the moon about how ***** Eastfootball is and how we’re all a shower of ****s.

    My own personal feeling is that for about a year after they were both binned the forum ticked over just fine and as far as I’m aware required very little moderation at all (which makes it utterly bizarre that some boys seem hell bent on trying to implicate me in it), and whilst a thread like this every once in a while can be a good laugh, I have no desire to go back to the days of every single thread going this way. So issuing amnesties or reprieves is something I would personally be against.

    It’s no up to me though.

    I know who MMMM is but I haven't socialised with him or physically met him.
    I don't know what else I can say about it to be honest but a bloke creating new accounts to come on here and cause trouble after he has already been banned says more about him than it does about us imo.
    I understood all of that. My point was it probably wasn't the best idea - it certainly set him off. Granted however you'd need the patience of a saint with some people.

    Possibly his need to aggressively engage with those who don't conform to his line of thinking is his default position and he is incapable or unwilling to change his behaviour. If this is the case he should be called out and exposed but hopefully we don't see him again in any other guise as in my opinion he has little to offer other than an 'online square go'.
    I get that and I'm maybe in a minority who haven't really been that bothered by him as I've been off the forum for a while and only recently decided to post again. Although as stated earlier I don't think winding him up (the MMMM amateur diagnosis, Mio's 'cos' we're mates' and others (including my own digs)) is, with hindsight, the correct way to deal with him and those like him.

    I've been on loads of United Forums now and I would say that there is a decreasing level of sanity in this order, Tekel Towers, EastFootball, Mad, but there all much of a muchness to be honest and it's many of the same posters across all three.

    When a guy gets banned (lets assume he's an adult), surely the best way to get back on here after a spell if he's missing the place is to PM a Staff member and perhaps apologise or say that he'll curb his behaviour in future, this particular fellow decided to create a further 3 accounts and go on rants about Mods and other members, what did he think that would achieve?

    Self attention?
    Minibus for Reynolds, Connolly, Harkes and a few others.

    Agreed. However whether temporarily or not the guy was not behaving in a manner that most folk would consider normal so winding him up further was definitely not the way forward. It's a very tricky one for you mods to deal with, but ultimately it is your show so if he doesn't want to toe the line then he's going to get banned - whatever the regime. Riling against it constantly shows his head is not in a right place.
