      I didnt say wagon, thats so offensive for my puppy !
      oh come on that’s the correct word for a female dog ! and I put in asterisks !
      anyway her name is Kitcha and that’s the word for female dog in Newar so now.

          1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

            I’m heading out to the pub at 4pm.
            If I’m back on time I’ll abuse the pair of you, The Brother and The Cat.

        You also need to learn that you don’t put a space between exclamation marks and question marks just like you don’t with commas and full stops.

  2. Janet, I ate my avatar

    moderators I salute your sense of fair-play in returning my post to its original form

  3. Johnny Keenan

    Janet! Call it as it is ya flaming mongrel.
    Sorry I’m hanging out with an Aussie over here in Edinburgh. I’m not sure what kind of an influence he is having on me. See for yourselves.
    You’re Not Australian ( from Ed Fringe show Australia is Fucked)

    Quit the poo from the pit Frilly.

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      what’s yourself Johnny
      Scottish and Australian influence is a heady cocktail of crazy
      stay safe now

    Memes you’re doing a splendid job of making yourself ridiculous this morning.

    Pat yourself on the back.

    1. bertie blenkinsop

      Let’s play a game –
      Somebody posted a drunken late night / early morning tirade of abuse and threats about me, I was replying to them.

      No prizes for guessing who it was, it’s simply for fun.

      1. Lord Snowflakee

        ah right

        I did see a lot of stuff from him earlier alright but the threats may have been deleted. He’s a scourge.

        1. Harry Molloy

          ah he’s like a loveable drunken uncle. one you wouldn’t leave your little girl with but you’d put up with him all the same.

          1. Lord Snowflakee

            Yea – well let’s see the screengrabs Bertie refers to and we’ll judge for ourselves.
            Can you put them on Imgur Bertie?

          2. Lord Snowflakee

            I don’t think loveable is the right word. I wonder what Shayna thinks of this but I often feel we are too tolerant in this country of bitter, violent drunks.

      2. Frilly Keane

        I didn’t see any threats
        At All
        in the 36 replies this tread was originally showing

        More like drooling over Janet
        In fact I didn’t see your name mentioned once Bertie

        Just saying

          1. Frilly Keane

            throw up the screen grabs

            unless you can tell me how to do the entire 36 string on my phone
            I’ll do it

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            I’m happy to send them to the moderators although I did in the past and he’s still given free rein.

          2. Frilly Keane

            fair enough, call him out for being a Willie

            Somebody posted a drunken late night / early morning tirade of abuse and threats about me, I was replying to them.

            may not actually apply to this thread

            and lemme tell ye something else
            from when the thread opened till around 9.30 am this morning
            Bertie was neither mentioned
            nor did he post on this thread

            and I was checking it during the live show

          3. Eddard Snowflakee King of the Snort

            There’s a weird flaw on this site where sometimes you can post stuff while in moderation and some others can see it but you can’t and it never gets posted.
            That’s what happened with a load of bertie’s posts this morning, I could see he had posted stuff in the right hand corner but I never saw his actual posts.

          4. Frilly Keane

            Just for everyones info
            Bertie sent me a screen shot
            but the thread ID nor the time / date of the post is identified
            only the posters & BS

            he subsequently sent on a screen grab with data confirming a grab time date etc
            but the content it grabbed is not visable
            it could be any BS comment, on any thread over the last 7 years

          5. bertie blenkinsop

            That’s because it’s a screen grab from a phone.

            I also sent you a screen grab showing you the details of the photo I.e. what time it was taken etc

            Why anyone would think I’d make it up is beyond me.

          6. mildred st. meadowlark

            I imagine that you have a debonair French husband called Jean-Luc or something wonderful like that.

            Incidentally, I do love how they pronounce the name Quentin.

          7. Janet, I ate my avatar

            more creole than débonnaire ;)
            no frills Islander like our good selves but sunnier

          8. Janet, I ate my avatar

            reckon we all do in our own way
            I know you have a tractor !
            I dream of driving one

          9. Harry Molloy

            Ploughing championship is mid September. I think Broadsheet should have a presence there. Help it appeal to a mass audience. I could meet you there

        1. Frilly Keane

          on my phone the whole string of 36 replies are still showing

          and Batty names

          Tracey Ulman
          The Brother
          The Cat
          a pub called The Thomas House
          and Les Mods

          So who is hounding who exactly

  5. Shayna

    Can I interject? Perhaps, let’s move on. Robert Kennedy (Bobby) said, “Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names”.

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      Hang on to your hats, guys. I’ve improved the quote:

      “Forgive your enemies, but never forget they’re memes”.

      WHADDABOUTDAH, WHA’? I’ll gerrup de yaaaaaaaaaaard meself and stand on the podium I’ve fashioned out of milk crates.

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        I’d like to say something snappy and cool, but damn it-

        That’s some fine Friday form on ye there luv.

    1. Bertie Blenkinsop

      It’s a storm in a teacup and let’s face it there’s nothing more boring than an internet spat but since certain people don’t believe me there’s the highlights.

      1. Frilly Keane

        oh stop throwing a tantrum
        you have one set of facts
        (which imo doesn’t ID the tread)

        and I have my set of facts

        feel free to go telling tales now to teacher
        and have me put on the naughty step

        an make it easier for you in the playground


        1. Bertie Blenkinsop

          Frilly you’re looking for a row that I’ve no intention of giving to you.

          The moderators know what was deleted, they also have the screengrabs and they can back up what was posted I’m sure.

          1. mildred st. meadowlark

            Think I’ll go with what I saw being posted with my own eyes, on my own phone this morning, but thanks anyway Frill.

          2. anne

            “evidence”. lol Do you know how pathetic you sound?

            Bertie’s screen grabs showed you to be full of P.O.O.P. again.

          3. Frilly Keane

            Good for you Anne
            You’d owed Bertie one
            It must be said

            I have up on Twitter the full publicly available thread
            The thread that EVERYONE on the internet could view

            What has become clear is that Bertie and Millie and some others have special access-all- areas and can actually view the in moderation content

            I merely defended what was only available to the rest of us

            It is only fair that those of us who only got sight of one set of facts be allowed to comment on same without some moron blowing in and blowing hard, and making shapes

            It’s no surprise that you and Bertie are tight on this one
            Ye’re well met
            It’s almost hard to tell ye apart

          4. Luke Warm

            Frilly I’m afraid I’ve no particular axe to grind here but the above does not paint you in a good light at all and neither does your “explanation” below. Rather than focus on the facts now clearly shown that memes was abusing Bertie and the moderators and using horrid, defamatory as well as homophobic stereotypes and slurs, you’re intent on hoisting yourself on your own petard of what YOU could see. Everyone knows there’s a weird glitch in the software which you definitely should also avail of if you get moderated :) This is a straw man argument you’re putting forward and instead you should be joining in the condemnation of memes as his continued war on good decent commentary here impoverishes us all.

          5. Frilly Keane

            Hould up there with yer “everyone knows there’s a weird glitch in the software”

            I didn’t
            And I’m not the only one

            I’m not interested in painting meself in any light
            I stand over everything I post here

            And everything I have to say gets said here publicly

            And oddly enough
            I’m entitled to draw my own conclusions from what information was publicly available
            To me

            Like I said
            I’m not privvy to moderated material
            And as for Batty
            Anything I’ve had to say about his carry on
            Has been done publicly

          6. Luke Warm

            What a spurious non-answer. It’s fairly simple Frilly. Do you stand with memes and his fascist badger-baiting of Bertie and the moderators?

          7. Frilly Keane

            I’m standing with me
            On me own
            And by the thread contents that were available to me

            And now everyone else @frillykeane

            While I wasn’t given access to contents, unlike others, that were moderated via this apparent ” glitch”
            I’m not complaining
            I have no interest in business conducted obscurely or privately between the moderators and others

            If you’ve nothing else to do but climb up my sounds like crass
            Go find
            Anywhere on the internet btw
            Where I have endorsed “facist badger-baiting” or anything else that would be considered in that same class

        2. Luke Warm

          Again you didn’t answer the question.
          We can conclude by your prevarication:
          You clearly stand with memes and his abusive drunken behaviour and intemperate outbursts.
          The entire thread contents are viewable to anyone in that circumstance who has commented on the subthread but remain in moderation as far as I can make out. Hence why Bertie and possibly also Mildred could see them.
          No vast conspiracies. Sorry.

          1. Eddard Snowflakee King of the Snort

            I counted queer-bashing, homophobia, misandry, personal vitriolic abuse at moderators and at Bertie, threats of physical violence at Bertie, questionable overtures to Janet … did I miss anything?

            Apart from that it was grand though

            Memes sounds like a troubled individual and shouldn’t be posting up here. No more than the Clampers, Anne and Nigel fellas there’s clearly unresolved issues.
            In society we wouldn’t normally allow crazy people to be ranting and roaring in the street so why do we tolerate it here online? Inquiring minds want to know.

        1. Brother Barnabas

          Suppose everyone has different standards and varying parameters, but I’m not sure how anyone could suggest homophobic slurs and direct threats of violence are ok.
          But I read the all that with sympathy and a small amount of concern more than anything else – not fun watching someone unravel so pathetically. I’m surprised it’s tolerated, though – a previous commenter (Kieran NYC) on this site left a couple of months ago, shortly after being the subject of a similar tirade. I don’t think it’s ok.

          1. Janet, I ate my avatar

            part of me hopes it’s all an act as a huge wind up
            if not I hope he has good people around him and gets to a happier place than some of his comments would suggest

          2. Brother Barnabas

            the venom and evident lack of control in some of the comments would suggest it’s not an act

            hopefully it is, though [but you’d need to be pretty bored for that]

      2. Nigel

        ‘there’s nothing more boring than an internet spat’

        I need to get this tattooed on my forehead.

          1. Nigel

            It’s okay! My new tattoo will save me by reminding me I’m boring everyone else long before I suddenly realise how intensely I’m boring myself. It’ll have Bertie’s avatar on one side and Mildred’s on the other to evoke me of the great romance of the age.

    2. Eddard Snowflakee King of the Snort

      Thanks Bertie. You should report this guy and the site to the gardai.

  6. Frilly Keane

    lads I’ve just tweeted the video of the thread
    from its opening till around 9.30
    maybe even 10ish this morning

    judge for yourselves

    1. Eddard Snowflakee King of the Snort

      Ferally, (and not for the first time) you’re looking like a complete and utter moron
      I’d ease up on the posting now for a while before what’s remaining of your tattered credibility dissolves in ruins

    2. Brother Barnabas

      Are you saying Bertie fabricated the screenshots he posted above, Frillz?

      That would be a peculiar suggestion.

      1. Bodger

        Hello all, we plan to have a chat with memes over the weekend about this. Sorry to Bertie for allowing the comments to go through.

        1. Bertie Blenkinsop

          Thanks Bodger, hopefully that’s the end of it and I can get back to worrying about Coutinho.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            to be honest, I find it hard to believe he’s Barcelona’s first choice. there’s a big neymar-sized hole there – but coutinho won’t fill it.

          2. bertie blenkinsop

            As Souness said the other night, he’s not really a consistent match winner, week in week out.
            Which is not to say he won’t evolve into one over time.
            I guess he’s more Mr Right Now than Mr Right.

          3. Brother Barnabas

            of all the big clubs’ managers, I’d trust Klopp more than any other to spend £90 million well. if i was liverpool, i’d bite their hand off (if that’s genuinely what’s been offered). i suppose the concern, though, would be that there’s not much time left.

          4. bertie blenkinsop

            I think the main issue is once other clubs know you have 100m to spend the price of their player rises accordingly, that allied to the fact that the window will close soon is a serious ballache.
            Hopefully someone persuades him to stay for one more season.
            Rumours circulating that Pep met him to sell Barca to him btw, I’m sceptical about that personally.

  7. Eddard Snowflakee King of the Snort

    I think what’s really telling here is that there’s 40 odd posts and not one of them is about the show.
    Not even one!


    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      The show was very entertaining and informative.
      And there was a gorgeous dog at the end and when Niall cuddled him his features just lit up and it was lovely to see.

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        I’m sorry I missed it now :(

        I’m working close on to 50 hours a week at the moment and I tend to fall asleep sometime after 10. I’m a sad little creature.

  8. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

    You know that completely unPC quote (not even unPC, just plain offensive) about arguing on the internet. Well, that.

  9. Harry Molloy

    they were fairly standard memes comments to be fair. I think the only difference is that Bertie reads them all

  10. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    I’m sorry, everybody.
    I don’t have what you might call ‘regular’ sleep patterns. My circadian rhythm rocks to a different beat.
    I’m not interested in facilitating ANY of you, in ANY fashion.

    But hang on a minute…
    There seems to be an argument, or a foregone conclusion about something I have ABSOLUTELY NO NOTION of.

    I’m an Atheist, so all I can do is kiss you if you tell me what the fupp you think I did.
    You people are too weird.

    I’m getting really suspicious. Somebody did

    You’re a bunch of fupping idiots, y’know that?
    Bodger texted me last night, asking me if I was okay.
    I didn’t understand it then. I’m beginning to understand it now.

    I don’t spend my life on Broadsheet.
    I have a proper life, in the REAL World.

    Fupping idiots.

    Somebody tell me what this nonsense is.
    I’m NOT going to engage with anyone in any fight.

    Curiosity. The #1 killer among Cats, and I’d like to know too…

    Just one of you, tell me what happened to upset you all so much.
    – Half of you know it couldn’t have been me, half of me couldn’t care less.

    If you’re that prissy, fupp off you fupping knob-headed donkie’s mickey
    Then do it again.

    If this is a concerted ‘effort’ on behalf of a limp-wristed campaign…
    …let’s go, baby babies. This is not your best idea, but it’ll be fun.

    I need to know which side of the fence bodger is sitting on before I pooin his garden or set fire to his house, or just cut his grass free-of-charge.
    Only he knows.

    1. Luke Warm

      Weasel words. You’re an abusive drunk, a queer bashed and you’re threatening physical violence against members of the forum and the moderators. Bodger sent you a message in good faith I presume because you were so far gone out of it we were all worried about your
      Mental health. Thanks

    2. Frilly Keane

      There you go again Lukey
      Who da púc do you think you are with this “we were all worried…”

      Speak for yourself
      The way I do

      And you don’t you ever have to assume anything about who I stand by or what I stand for
      I’ll say it loud n’ proud bhoy

      I walk my talk

      Luke Warm is the right handle for you alright
      Like weak tay
