according to TJ (just read the other thread) he's admitted it was him, no account hacked, so no defence really, i'm shocked though, apart from his slagging of charity bike races in the summer i thought he was an ok guy, maybe it was a joke gone wrong?
So you don't mind the word being used in public but not on the internet?
doesn't matter what anyone thinks on here except for Mark and he said there were no complaints, Mark pays the bill and bans who he wants, end of storyPosted 8 years ago

I object strongly to the use of the word 'moron' or 'moronic' as used by a mod in another thread (also other derogatory terms involving people with learning disabilities – the few who know me will know why).
As it actually denoted a category of learning disability and was widely used as a categorisation for eugenics I feel it is unacceptable to be used to deride or describe others.
Those using it in such a fashion are being derogatory to those with learning disabilities, and making their condition an insult towards othersPosted 8 years agotheboatmanMember
I would have just google'd cromarty ferry, I think it was a fair pull by the mods. I'm not really sure it's about deciding if druidh is or isn't racist, the thread needed to go. Regardless of context, it wasn't the best way to title the thread, I don't think there will be much lost sleep about it.Posted 8 years agodmillerMember
Druidh adds to the forum and comes across as a steady lad. A (badly) misjudged joke isn't the end of the world.
Yeah – one daft joke to far – I dont think it makes him a bad person.
That's what annoys me is when blacks use this word in their songs or call each other it than get the arse ache when a white person says it.
I would describe myself as a fat ****. I would be unhappy if someone else called me one (even if they are right). I think its similar…Posted 8 years agoFoxyChickMember
druidh has a great sense of humour(more than can be said about some on here) and knew exactly what he was doing.
There is no way on this earth he is a racist, and anyone who thinks he is needs to take a serious look at themselves.
AND it's hardly a great hardship to be banned from this place for a few days.
He took the risk he paid the price.
Yep, he lives on the edge!! 😉Posted 8 years ago
What a load of bollox!!!wwaswasSubscriber
he had the opportunity to change it when he saw the initial reaction and chose not to.
it was done to provoke a reaction and it has acheived it's aim.
If nothing else, fropm Marks perspective google and other search engines tend to get a bit funny about sites with that kind of term in their pages – the whole site can get classed as unsafe.Posted 8 years agouplinkMember

I don't think that's the issue herePosted 8 years ago
If you search for that word here it gets quite a few hits
