    What, no response? Classic cover-up.

    How do you know he won't be?

    I've not yet read the entire thread but have been working my way through it. As anyone who's been here for any length of time should know, we take a very dim view on the mocking of any football related tragedy. The challenge for us is defining the difference between acceptable humour, and such mocking. I think for the most part, intent behind what is said is a large factor in how it should be treated in such circumstances.

    I do think it's an interesting conversation, and whilst I want to be clear that this is not the court of public opinion I'd be genuinely interested to know how other members feel about what Andy (and other members subsequently) said in that thread.

    This is a spoof thread. Andy is fine, everything is fine, Ghosh’s son is crying, we all move on.

    I've reconsidered my position. Not sure it feels "right" to ban one tragedy because he made fun of another, if you know what I mean?

    Absolutely, I get that Totti starting the thread was tongue in cheek but it does allow people to air their views. We have banned members in the past for mocking football tragedies, and whilst we think this is a very different case entirely don't want to demonstrate double standards.

    It is a different case.

    No one has the right to be offended on behalf of Sala. It was light hearted and Ghosh only spat his dummy out because he was banned for something similar. Similar but not the same.

    No harm done, Andy has appreciated he ‘offended’ a couple of old women and apologised repeatedly, we move on.

    Burn the c*nt, imo.

    Can’t be going against the rules on this forum. You have to abide by them. So important. Otherwise, we are just animals.

    What's worse: making a distasteful joke, or breaking into someone's house and beating seven shades out of them for no reason and then bragging about it online?

    How is this even a question? The joke can impact lots of people for a long time; years from now it could still be impacting people.

    It’s the joke, right?

    I'll set up a go fund me page, because if we ban him we'll get sued by The support of helping gingers go through life without any problems. TSHGGTFWAP for short.

    This is what happens when mods have too much power I remember when Quirk banned me for 1 day for a laugh.

    I would seriously worry about Andy's mental health without this forum. Being banned killed Great White, you don't want the death of another ginger on your hands.
