    All of this goes way above my head, but, on reflection I'd say a better way of moderation would be to moderate ones self by not posting when you've just finished off a six pack of Special Brew or a couple of bottles of a particular nice red. Not you Omega Man..

    I think this thread has well past it's usefulness and is simply lapsing into an exchange of personal abuse.

    I'll leave it a little bit longer just in case anyone has a meaningful contribution to make, but I think the take away message is that if you have an issue, don't sit and stew, raise it with the mods and it will be considered.

    If posters feel a change of mods is needed, a poll with candidates to choose from will let the board decide. After all, the board belongs to the posters, not the mods, and nobody is above being moderated.

    This has some merit, what about a simple traffic light system on the Off Topic threads to warn people if they go off the off topic subject thus saving people from trawling 20 pages of drivel?

    I nominate Ben and Castro as mods, then they can delete each others posts.

    I think those headstones get more respect in Flanders than they do here.

    No one there tries to use their supreme sacrifice to try and make political capital out of them, unlike some 'radicals' here.

    The last post at Menin Gate was outlawed by the occupying Germans in WW2 , then on the first night of liberation the locals started it again and have been doing it ever since. There were times in the 50s and 60s when barely a handful or people were present- unlike now where it''s hundreds every night. Septics, Aussies, Canadians, Dutch even Germans. As a spectacle it's predictable, but it;s unbeatable for the way it hushes and affects onlookers.

    I should've mentioned in the original post that there are many German Cemeteries around that area too..I took a look at one in 'Menen',they are so very different,very eerie and drab and to me they somehow indicate failure?

    Is it also OK to assume that you're being racist by assuming the guise of a black, murderous dictator on a message board?
    Idi Amin was certainly not a British militiarist to be proud of.

    I've posted **** on here when I have had one to many and luckily the moderators have saved me embarrassment the next day by deleting my posts.
    I think we are all going a bit stir-crazy at the moment with the lockdown.
    I haven't seen my folks in the flesh since February last year and I need a ****ing holiday.
    Let's all try to better to be better to each other (me included) we are all City supporters at the end of the day.
    Big game today.

    Short answer...no.

    I will change it to idi admin and become a mod if it protects your feelings? Your also assuming my colour.

    And while we are on shaky ground, my preferred pronouns in advance are him, he, and his if you need to further respond.

    OLM, DMD, Cortez? Name change and promotion?
