Eds, is the Bermo ban indefinitely?

{Ed001's Note - indefinite? Yes. Permanent? No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

What's his time limit punishment .

{Ed001's Note - indefinite means there isn't one. It is just a case of when it is lifted it is. It is not really for me to decide, the editors as a whole are unpaid volunteers who shouldn't have to be subjected to reading those things, so it will be when they as a whole feel it has been long enough. I haven't asked them to gauge their feeling on the matter yet. I can't remember when the ban was placed to even say it will be X amount of months then we can see how it goes again. Tomorrow I will speak to them and see what's what.}

Think the Ed’s do a brilliant job, must admit, I also hadn’t noticed any threats. No place for personal threats on the Site so must have been serious for Ed’s to have made the ultimate decision.

Hopefully Ed has laid a glimmer of hope there.
Indefinitely. ‘lasting for an unknown or unstated length of time’

Personally, really hope we seem Berm back posting again before the end of the season. We all have very different views and Berns views generally very, very different from my own, but I enjoy the different perspectives, and end of the day. ALAW.

Got to disagree. I stopped reading this site because I was so sick of his ridiculous and offensive posts. Much better site for not having people regularly making personal insults and repetititive boring nonsensical posts. Virtually all posters on here were sick of it, don’t now give it the big “we want you back”. We don’t.

The eds edit any threats out so we don't see them. Compared to the 5hitstorm on other social media, racism and threats we see on there on a daily basis I am thankful that this is the type of site where that abuse is not tolerated. It's one of he reasons that I enjoy using this forum so much. I know Berm outside of this forum also and i'm sure whatever he said he didn't really mean as he is a genuinely nice guy but there is no excuse for threats or abuse in any forum. Hopefully this can be resolved and Bermo will be posting again at some point in a respectful way.

I rarely if ever agree with berm and if he has done something wrong then a punishment is acceptable but to be fair he was getting some grief from the Ed’s himself so it’s only right to have banter back. Like I said though if it was personal then a punishment is required.

{Ed001's Note - he got grief because I had asked him repeatedly to stop. It was not banter back, he stopped with the banter a long time ago sadly.}

Mattanimal the Ed’s are the controlling factor on this site and have been for all the years I’ve been on here. So berm is rightfully banned either temporarily or permanently just as George was also banned for a while. Both are very forthright posters and it shows the controls the Ed’s put in place are work.

But please don’t play the royal “we” card, i’ll reserve my right to express my views without someone stating a collective view for me thanks. You have the freedom to stop reading or following as is you chose to do previously but thankfully you do not have the right to make arbitrary decisions for us all.

Trust the Ed’s and enjoy what I believe is the best banter site going but it takes differences of opinion to generate debate, banter.

Just because you don’t agree with someone’s views doesn’t make them boring or nonsensical. I have posted on here numerous times I seldom agree with Berm but I respect his right to express a view (so long as it doesn’t it stays appropriate) I take it all with a pinch of salt and I think if we’re honest most people have thrown some grit and stones in our greenhouse.

I suppose there is a lesson to us all in that. Love this site and the eds do a great job. Agree with Alf's post above. Almost always had a different view to Berm, but think some loved to rattle his cage at times. sadly he loved to Labour his point and can see where he would react. Hope to see him return in the future.

If I remember about 2 yrs ago I stopped posting after a few spats with berm but now I just don’t read his posts, he spat his dummy out after Ed told him a few home truths about force feeding his opinions down everyone’s throat and berm said that he was quitting the site over the matter. 12 hours later he was back posting. My point is I think once he’s had time to think about whatever he’s done? Or not? As I don’t know, he’ll be back telling everyone bielsa is poop and he’s got the fastest granny in the world and he’s a better player than Philips. Have a nice day guys 😁.

{Ed001's Note - when he first came on, he was one of the most entertaining and original posters. Then he just seemed unable to let anything lie or anyone have a different opinion.}

Just catching up on the Bermo posts. That's what happens when you have an early night. It all kicks off and you miss the fun.
I have my own take on the prolific Bermo. Certainly his posts are sometimes diametrically opposite to my own but surely that is the essence of debate. Long may it continue, however whenever it turns personal then that clearly oversteps the mark and should be acted upon by the Eds. That is their job and they should be left to do it and very well they do do it. As for the contentious content of some of Berms posts then either stand your ground and argue your corner. Agreeing to disagree or as in the 60s arguement against Mrs Whitehouse. If you don't like it turn it off! Or in Bermos case don't read it. Let the Eds do their job. How strong the "threats? " were I do not know and, as in a few replies, I hope some compromise can be reached and those controversial posts are, at some point, seen again.

Mattanimal how many people on here do you know away from the site because I don’t agree with berm most of the time but don’t want to see him put out to pasture for it, if he bothers you that much you should consider stopping reading the site again.

I know what you meen Ed001 and I remember the message you sent him that touched a nerve, well for 12 hours anyway.
