I didn't see the irony in your comments John. If you really didn't mean to be unkind and unpleasant you might want to think about ways to write that can't be construed as such.

Making disparaging comments and then saying that you were only joking is a well documented bullying behaviour and is best avoided.

Apologies....could anyone who thinks I've bullied them please get in contact.... I'm happy for conversation and argument ....but please let me know where I've bullied anyone....I'm horrified at that perception. Quite happy to apologise unreservedly.[/quote]

Calling you a bully is equally ridiculous. Its a term that shouldn't be trotted out willy nilly by anyone without clear justification.

Pot and kettle come to mind.


Perception is an interesting thing isn't it? The difference between actual meaning and the way you read the written words. I probably have the advantage over you in that I know KPB personally and I can tell you that you would have to go a long way to find someone less bullylike. Although I'm also quite sure he's perfectly capable of defending himself on here.

Now can the silly playground name calling end please.

Note to KPB -Cheques and folding stuff both acceptable BTW :D

Wow !! Just read the comments following my ironic first post back. Some people need to lighten up a little and not take themselves so incredibly seriously ;)

Admin - The figure of 27 "personal messages" was FYI via your organ, private email and phone/text. BTW I find it slightly disturbing that you read people's PMs. The clue is surely in the term "personal" - I won't be sending anymore for you to spy on !! Is that in the T&Cs ??

Would like to say it's a pleasure to be back BUT from some of the tripe written may be best to stay away from the SW onanists for ever ??

"Bully", "racist", "threatening" and "disgrace" - really ?? Really ??

Rugby, GRFC and rugby-related only from now on. PROMISE. And how long before being yellow-carded again simply because it goes against another individual's view ??

This is really childish from all parties. Such a shame after a great return to rugby this weekend

No I didn't. Maybe sarcasm.
