    Get to ****. Go and trawl through my previous posts looking for buzz phrases instead of dredging the arse end of the internet for outrage.

    What's your motive for posting this gruesome stuff on a football forum? For a reaction of outrage perhaps? I would suggest most contributors on here would prefer not to be exposed to such "news" in the context of this forum's purpose. If they wanted it, they'd search elsewhere.
    Spare us all.

    There are lots of things on here not connected to football or Hull City

    I see, like music, commentary on movies. Hardly justification for that particular type of subject matter.

    Yes, let's all live in a safe space where nothing nasty ever happens. The main issue with Des head seemed to be it was in the Daily Star. Maybe if it had been in the Guardian or Mirror that would have been alright. Calling drawing attention to horrific stuff clickbait is pathetic. No doubt calling attention to what went on in children's homes in Lambeth is clickbait in the minds of some people.

    Go and look at the words in the link you posted. Not the article, the actual words in the link. That's what defines click-bait.

    What does Des Head's post have to do with what I'm asking about your motive for posting such material on this forum?
    Can we expect "Snuff Movie" clips or ISIS execution video's on here next?
    There needs to be more self discipline in what people post on a football forum, or tighter control i.m.o.
    Your motive was?

    In fairness the link is explicit in what it will contain, so self discipline and perhaps don't open the link and avoid being offended.

    This thread is for 'something completely different' which means squabbling and name calling is off topic, as it occurs on so many other threads. :emoticon-0105-wink:

    "Something different" is not specific at all. Different to what?

    A link is a link. If the article is not click bait then the link is. A link merely gives a synopsis 9f what a story is about.

    No mention of snowflake?
    Why would I put you on ignore? Totally miss my point.

    That's not true and it seems you have a lot to learn about the internet. It doesn't matter to you because you're set in your ways, but to the impressionable, links like these affect how they view the world. You don't have to answer tigerscanada's question about your motive, but you should probably ask yourself.

    I don't think anybody is offended or have tried to avoid being so. Just trying to teach an old dog old tricks.

    But you can't teach an old dogma new tricks. :emoticon-0100-smile

    Very few people could and would make art from their own demise. Bowie did because he could. What a loss he is to us.
