It wasn't just the bet issue though, was it ?

For the best part of a year, Waz carried on a relentless campaign of bigging up every other possible promotion rival and deciding AFCB's chances. Then telling anyone who disagreed that they were stupid. On a forum for loyal AFCB supporters, that's not going to go down well, is it ?

I completely understand the "play the post not the poster" thing, but to be fair, after Waz reappeared as KK, his posts were reasonable and constructive, and he got no kickback apart from some gentle teasing, which was only to be expected given the ludicrous manner of his exit.

If KK could simply carry on with his thoughtful, well-constructed posts and avoid the temptation to being the eternal Prophet Of Doom and the self-aggrandising posturing, then all would be fine.
Carrying on a relentless campaign to remind any new poster who could be someone else of it isn’t exactly going down well either.

It’s akin to a primary school playground.

Exactly, it's a wasps nest. That's part of the problem.
So your saying if a poster says Frederick's is a poor signing, which is likely to mean we have no chance against the likes of forest next season, given they're signing top European players, albeit they've not signed anyone yet, then the said poster isn't going to get lots of responses?
 
I was wondering that too.

Curious that Sleepy only joined the forum at the end of April, just days before Waz Mk. 1 disappeared into thin air.

Coincidence? Surely not !
I've disagreed with KK on this forum. That would mean I was disagreeing with myself, which I suppose is possible but would be pretty bizarre. Maybe I'm Waz and KK isn't. Or maybe I'm just someone different who has seen the effects of people hounding someone before. Nice people hounding someone actually. I joined when I was on holiday, so I guess that would have been around the end of April. I'm obsessed with the Cherries and was banging on about them to my friend who was getting fed up with me talking about them I think. He suggested I join the forum. I don't generally do social media other than WhatsApp but was excited/nervous about the promotion push, gutted and relieved in equal measure to miss the match against Forest, so joined and enjoy contributing.

Isn't just about that comment, though. People are constantly making comments they wouldn't to others.

Yes it is indeed bizarre to create multiple Internet personalities but it does happen quite a lot.

People do it as a way of supporting their original personality, ie. someone who'll agree with the first poster and legitimise their opinions.

Of course, from time to time, they will manufacture a disagreement to make it look more real, but that's all part of the game.

Why can't I just be another person who dislikes the relentless hounding of another? You could be him too manufacturing disagreement.
 
It's not relentless, is it ?

If KK would simply stick to reasonable posts and stop the provocative stuff then nobody would take too much notice, as evidenced by the first few weeks of KK's presence here.

But maybe that's not what he wants ? Perhaps he doesn't want to be a fairly anonymous presence here ?

And there you have it. Deep down I think that Waz enjoys the attention that comes his way even if he has to stoop to pretty low levels to get it.

So are you saying people aren't allowed to express opinions and be controversial? Would be pretty boring if everyone agreed and there were no strong opinions. He wasn't the only one against the Fredericks signing. If you read back through the thread, you'll see others didn't want him either. Were they hounded by the comments police?
 
I think Waz (KK) and Sleepy Cherry need to create a support network for misunderstood posters.

It's bullying don't you know?

Brian can you be their support person, and make random announcements on their behalf, without consulting them?

Cheers in advance.

Surely that's exactly what you are saying?

You are suggesting that someone should be able to post any controversial nonsense they want, repeat it over and over again, flood the board with ridiculous spouting, insult other posters that don't agree and finally, when called out on a charity bet that he reneged on, disappear into the night only to reappear shortly after as a new person and then...

Nobody is allowed to call him out?

I try and find common ground with posters as often as I can but people should be allowed to challenge opinions as long as it is done in a respectful way.
 
I don't often agree with NMJ, in fact I don't think I ever have, but this time he has succinctly reasoned as to why KWAZK, is a complete Muppet.

Whilst everyone was enjoying the end of a finely poised season, he was on a one man mission to tell us why we would fail.

There is a fine line between narcissm and bullying.

He just fell short, so don't feel sorry for KK.

He would have been as high as a kite if Forest claimed second.

That IS NOT bullying.

Fine to call someone out but to keep regurgitating it... People are now flooding the forum with anti KK messages. Seems like that to me anyway. Also, we don't know that KK is this other guy. It's out of proportion. It would definitely go down as bullying in the work place. As DJ said, just let it go. If you can't, put him on ignore.

Well guess what Sleepy, we aren't at work.

He put his head above the pulpit, and wasn't man enough to admit he was wrong.

Instead he changed his username and now starts the same negativity preseason.

Merely 6 weeks after being horrifically wrong.

If you FCUK up at work, can you change your name and come in as Brenda from accounts?

The answer is no.

No different here sorry.

I think you’re adding to the regurgitating.
I think we can be 99% sure that KK is Waz.
I am also inclined to think you are also another reincarnation.
