I think it will be sad if United Addict leaves the page. Perhaps we should consider how we have discussions, disagreeing with things but not trying to destroy people's position by targeting an individual, an individual you don't even know. There is a element of bullying in the way people queue up to try to undermine people. We all support the same club, all want success, although perhaps there are some who see success differently.

Personally I recall being told I had some sort of mental condition about 5 years ago as part of a rather nasty campaign to discredit my position, but hey I am still here and the person who did it, isn't, but it doesn't get to me, it obviously does get to others. I don't aim to push people off the site and don't think anyone has left because of me, but I will hold a position I believe in and argue for it. Perhaps consider whether the site would be better or worse for the person who holds a different position being harassed off the site.

I hope United Addict makes a return.

Same as that, well said red.

28 Aug 2019 20:30:12
I don't think or I at least hope no one aims to push someone off the site .
People do argue there position infact UA does, there is no need to get personal tho .
People use the site for different things but it's been difficult to have a proper discussion for a while it just always gets dragged back to the same point.
The current one being ole,

28 Aug 2019 20:33:08
To be fair redman he has not been harassed of the site.
By the same token he has to accept that others have a different view. I have no issue with his votes or the way he puts then across at all i think he is a great poster and your right its opposing views that make the site worth visiting imo.

28 Aug 2019 20:48:58
Come on UA there is lots of❤❤❤ that's enough of your bolloxology😂.

28 Aug 2019 21:14:01
Anyone bullying people off the site, is bad behaviour. Who do people think that they should behave in this way? It is despicable.
UA, please ignore the ignorant people, we all have different views, and no one needs to be rude at portraying it.

28 Aug 2019 21:33:44
As Mort said, no one pushed UA off the site. He's a big boy. To be honest, I never really read his points, because there's inevitably an aggressive and hostile tone running through them that puts me off. Just how I see them. If he's big enough to dish it out.

28 Aug 2019 22:18:06
One regular poster threatened to prorogue me if I criticised Ole.

28 Aug 2019 22:19:36
No one wants to bully people off the site, or at least I hope they don't.

It would be a shame if UA leaves the site, but he is a big boy and has to make his own decisions. I don't think he has had it any worse than Red Man, or GDS, or jred, or Fresh, or Ronnie or myself plus many others who have had plenty of "banter" aimed at them.

Sometimes though a break from the site is needed. I've taken a step back on occasions and it has always helped me gain some perspective.

Hopefully after a while away from the site UA will feel able to return.

Unfortunately some people don't see things as early as others or see them differently and give them hell for airing their views. Is beast still around? I remember seeing him get a pretty regular bashing during the LVG era, but now most would agree with what he was saying.

29 Aug 2019 07:12:59
I was here 5 years ago Red Man but I don’t remember that. I know when i joined I AM KLOOT was pretty offensive and regularly warned, it has got much better which is why we shouldn’t throw the word bully around so easily.

UA Just register under a different name.
I did this after bring harassed for being a JMB clone (never did find out who he was)
I found a new identity whilst continuing to express similar views - stopped all the hassle.
Funny how people react on here.

29 Aug 2019 08:13:27
If it was RAINFISH then I’m not surprised but that was more than 5 years ago.

29 Aug 2019 08:51:15
I thought I Am Kloot was Rainfishtrombone reincarnated?
. or the other way round?

29 Aug 2019 09:02:38
Is UA not just JMB under a different name then?

I've always assumed he is, his style of posts are almost identical.

29 Aug 2019 09:17:07
Bilko yer I think so .
99 makes a good point below, people have been called worse than pessimists.

29 Aug 2019 10:33:53
It shouldn't matter what their name is or was, if everyone had the same view, it would be a bit boring
I don't agree with half the posters on here but I don't go replying to their every post hounding them.

29 Aug 2019 10:46:58
The best thing to do is take yourself away from the site for a couple of weeks or whoever long you feel you should. I did recently and only posted a nonsense little fact because it interested me.
Sometimes it feels like the same people reply to certain posters to get a reaction. It also becomes extremely boring and time consuming to read the same arguments over and over.
I’ve just enjoyed having the football back on and how all the teams look early on.
I don’t think we’ll be far off 3rd-4th with non of Spurs, Arsenal or Chelsea looking particularly impressive.

29 Aug 2019 11:37:20
I assume UA isn't JMB, MAZE, whatever he used to call himself as that incarnation wouldn't have ever taken offence, he would have just been rude to everyone and talked in 3rd person about himself.

Not really sure why UA took offence below though, from what I could see nobody was personal to him. I've said a few times that he doesn't seem to enjoy football or coming on here, if something made me so sad and miserable I would take a break and try and be a bit more positive. Be thankful your father wasn't a Bury fan etc, we are having some tricky times but I am quite enjoying the challenge of getting back to the top.

I respect anyone on here as we are all United fans, we should stick together even if we have differing opinions, that's why I was frustrated the other day when it was made out I am just here to have a go at people, that certainly isn't the case.

This site would be boring if everyone agreed, but I would suggest UA posts more when we win and looks at the positives rather than waiting for a defeat and bombarding the site as that will always get people's backs up.

AJH

It wasn’t Kloot/ Rainfish. Don’t think I ever had an issue with Kloot at all. The one who did it started with one name then changed to X file or something like that, lived in the Middle East, told us he was a non exec director as he was important ( I know what one is) . Think it was about Moyes but he doesn’t post now.

29 Aug 2019 12:33:38
Shahram?

29 Aug 2019 12:36:16
Ah yes, Shahram, who became X Files perhaps. I always wondered what happened to him.

29 Aug 2019 12:42:24
people telling posters to go and support another club probably doesn't help if the person its aimed at has supported united all there life. you need different opinions and different characters or life would soon be boring.

29 Aug 2019 12:54:52
We need Beast and UA for active discussions.

29 Aug 2019 13:05:19
Agree Jod

Almost like you won’t come round to my way of thinking so “go support someone else”. Seen that a few times recently, from some notable posters.

29 Aug 2019 15:25:08
I love how comments get taken out of context and twisted. I can see why the club employ media people to work with the players.

I said why support the club if their is nothing you love about the club? If you can't find any joy from supporting the club then you might be better off going and supporting a club that does make you happy.

Football is an entertainment industry, how many times do you watch TV programs you don't enjoy? Or spend money on activities you hate?

Spend thousands of pounds a year to be a member of a golf club and spend all day Sunday playing golf even though you hate golf. That's madness and you just wouldn't do it.

So why would you do it if it's football?

We are all here ultimately because we love our club. My point was more an attempt to shake people up and make them remember what it is they love about their club.

There is loads wrong with our club at the moment, if you only focus on that then your bound to be miserable. So choose not to, you can't change it. Instead focus on what you love about the club and cherish that.
