Treble 99 has just been banned.

For Good.

Plus the entire thread titled "FA Cup Final Medal for sale-Sunderland" will be deleted very soon.

I want new people to feel welcome to join the forum and that thread does the opposite.

Shame it had to come to this.

That is a shame as he brought so much knowledge to this forum.

I know him personally and can honestly say he means well in real life and

will help anyone out.

He maybe doesn't come across well in text and writes what he thinks.

The internet is a faceless place where we build up opinions about people we have never met face to face.

Unfortunately Ray isn't the gloating bully you believe he is on here.

I will say that he hasn't helped himself with the way he comes across in text speak but that's not the person I have met in reality.

Anyway just my opinion.

I am sure you are right. He has so much knowledge I really didn't want to have to do it but the many will always win over the individual as I try to keep as many people happy as possible. Sadly Ray simply upset too many people, too many times.

Oh yes I can see why people are upset about being called tossers and his
analogies of various types of collector's haven't gone down well.

But I will say this Ray is an honest man who wouldn't rip people off and
he has paid a fair price to items he's bought and is generous in the items he's sold I know this from personal experience.

He is proud of his collection and this sometimes gets misinterpreted as condesending.

I know the other big United collector on here personally and he's a good guy as well also with an amazing collection.

Both will help newbies out in the collecting world if they can.

The internet creates this problem I think that someone is seen in a different light to what they are really.

And then when public opinion gathers speed the few get put down by the many.

It's a shame it has come to this when Ray has contributed more expertise to the site than a lot of posters on here.

While you are at it past pirate you should also consider banning some the small group of bullies who appear to have deliberately ganged up to have treble removed.

Who would that be?

The only person that got treble banned was treble himself. If perhaps he refrained from calling fellow members tossers amongst other stuff, I'm sure he'd still be here. Take out his obvious disrespect for almost everyone on here, he would be a valuable member of the forum but you have to play by the rules.

Nobody deliberately ganged up on anyone, just people fed-up with the disruption that he caused.

Anyway, let's get back to talking programmes and move on.

erm......because that's the way I viewed it? and to counter absurd claims of bullying.

Don't worry, there's no conspiracy to uncover Sherlock

Bishpam didn't mention anyone's names so why defend yourself?

Because it doesn't take a genius to work out who he was aiming it at.

Is there a point to this? if so can we get to it so we can all move on.

Oh the point is you and the other's have identified yourselves in Bishpam's comment about bullies basically naming yourselves as to who he was referring to.

Ive been reading this forum for several weeks, there have been a couple of cases where members have ganged up on more senior contributers.
Its a blatent case of bullying ive seen posts with foul mouthed attacks on other members.. Time for them also to be named, shamed as they seem to have a free reign on here. Regards ALAN

Please god can this thread not turn into a slanging match Treble was banned due to the way he spoke to people and nothing to do with others influencing me.
He did bring a lot to the forum but also must have put many new people off from joining.
For the sake of the future of this forum he is gone. Sad though it is.

Sigh.

Bispham inferred that treble was ganged up on and bullied off the board, in my opinion that is absurd. However, if it has been happening and I haven't noticed then I hope the people who have done the bullying are warned or yellow carded.

Can we move on now?

With respect, that's slightly juvenile.

No further comment from me on the subject.
