If I was offended by the songs and chants at a football match I wouldn't go. Likewise if I found offense at certain TV shows, or youtube videos I'd steer clear.

Makes you wonder why some people still browse twitter farcebook etc knowing they'll come across stuff they don't like . . . almost as though they go looking for it in anticipation.

This was a website as opposed to social media. Anyone should be able to browse the internet without being subjected to material that takes the piss out of those suffering things like PTSD after being raped as a child, lost family in the holocaust or racist, homophobic terms etc.

Society is cleaning up It's act and you'll now find that songs & chants once acceptable at football matches are no longer so.

As clueless as usual, you just keep repeating what you are fed.

You cant just "browse the internet" and suddenly come across them, you have to specifically go looking for them.

Unlike you, Ive been using that site for 12 years, We have had a CF league on it for a number of years.
Ive never seen a single team that could "offend" even you and the endless lists you keep coming up with.

They went hunting with the intention of being "offended" and didnt stop until they found what they wanted, no doubt for the publicity.
(Did they just quietly report them, of course not, they made a song and dance about it ).

If people are offended by the internet, dont browse it, and dont go looking for it - all views are possible, even ones the snowflakes dont like.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

The Athletic was alerted to the scale of this problem by Adrian Barnett, a professor of statistics at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.

He downloaded every FPL name using the website’s API, or Application Programming Interface. Once he had downloaded details for all 7.5 million teams, he began searching for offensive terms.
I new term I recently heard applies to this guy.

"An offence Archeologist" - Some one that goes digging for things to be offended by when no one has actually made any complaint or comment.

Also applies to the media when they go trawling through decade old tweets or facebook posts looking for something a politician of=r other public figure may have said when they were 18 and then try to apply it to them today.

The really annoying thing about this is the way organisations and establishments pander and react to this.

If there was something really bad like "All Jews must die FC" . then of course that is unacceptable and against the law. But "sex drugs and Carlton Cole" is genius.

They banned sex drugs and Carlton Cole, going to inform the website called the same, guess my FC Kuntz from way back has gone to then based on that, was named in honour of Stefan Kuntz, no other reason...

Most incorrect saying ever, words have driven people (including children) to suicide. We"ve been through this before after you previously posted this nonsense in the thread

Either way, extremely offensive content should not be permitted. The names have been removed to allow them to change them to something more appropriate. If they do it a further time, they will be removed from the site. The owners are hardly going to risk sanctions, including prison, to allow them to continue doing it. Would you?
