    was anything actually done by the mods about that, or did he only ban Rovers fans for reacting?

    Could you edit your final message to say that these allegations have been proven false for the record?

    yes. a certain greasy cameraman started the rumour and let the rest of them in on the 'joke' later.

    and poor form of you to perpetuate the possibility it happened by the way.

    Ha.
    Perpetuate?

    There is a possibility it happened.
    Look up the words possibility and rumour.


    By the way, the rumour hasn't been proved false, not by your word anyway.
    Having said that, the onus is on people to prove something true.
    Nothing false has been posted in this thread.
    City definetly have the best bands playing at half-time.

    so you are copping out?

    i wonder would your reaction be quite so flippant if it was Pats fans they were inventing stories about?

    Copping out of what? The threads locked, Bohs fans have failed to prove thir allegations, and the majority of those who posted highlighted this. All your doing is looking to score points over Bohs fans.

    i think its a legitimate question and sums up the moderation (or lack thereof when it suits them) on here. there is no way on the wide earth he would have left this bóllocks up if it were about pats.

    only on this site would there be sanctions for reacting to a false allegation of racism while those who deliberatley spread wild rumours get protected.

    You have left the allegations stand. All you as a mod have done is say they were unproven and left people the opportunity to prove them. You are very pointedly leaving the allegations there and as such lending them credibility, and telling me I'm point scoring?

    Would you have let that thread go the way it went if it were Pats being lied about?

    *sigh*

    Its not binned. Its been moved to the correct forum. it was taken out of the Alan Reynolds thread as it clearly doesn't have anything to do with him. All complaints/enquiries about threads being closed, bannings and anything mod related goes in here.

    Clear enough for you now?

    But they haven't been proven false. How can you, or anybody, prove that no racist comments/sounds were made? As Risteard and Dodge have said, the allegations haven't been proven, and the majority of posters have agreed on this. Dodge's unwillingness to edit the last post does not lend any credibility to them at all.

    They were suspended for personal attacks on the poster.

    .
    thats a preposterous position to have. a named bohs staff member was claiming he had evidence that we racially abused Mansaram. He has later withdrawn that charge and I belive admitted he made it up for a laugh. No-one else heard anything, Rovers, Bozo or neutral.

    If that doesnt prove it false I dont know what does.

    Will action be taken against the Bohs posters who involved themselves in the lie in the same way it was against Rovers fans reacting to the attack on their club?

    No other club has to put up with this constant barrage of false stories and innuendo and this sort of perversion of logic.

    Put another way, Osarun, you are a paedophile until you prove me wrong!! A bloke I met in the pub after the game says he has evidence! By your logic I am entitled to stand by my clearly false accusation because you cant prove the absence of an act!

    But people will use their intelligence to see that your evidence is flimsy and your argument is going to get blown out of the water. And so the allegation has no real effect.

    Dodge I've just PM'd you on the subject. Feel free to pass on the message to any other mods.
    TO TELL THE TRUTH IS REVOLUTIONARY

    The ONLY foot.ie user with a type of logic named after them!

    All of this has happened before. All of it will happen again.

    so why have forum rules about posting rumour? or mods for that matter?

    this allegation has surfaced on other boards without the qualifications it got here. i have no doubt that there would have been a different official reaction if these lies were about Pats, Bohs or Cork.

    I have made my point. As with the Tallaght Echo article on the foot.ie campaign, the mods cop out again and dont act until a Rovers fan objects, ban them, and then bin the discussion in support. While leaving the offending posts sitting there.
