I am not afraid to speak up for what I believe in, not afraid to lead a movement for the betterment of the masses. If I have posting privelages limited further, so be it. But I will not rest until this site is a safe and fair place for NYCFC fans to discuss soccer without being overloaded with crap. I refuse to allow this site to degrade to the level of the facebook page. And this is no exaggeration, that is exactly where it is headed. It takes a fool to stick his head in the sand and say 'if you don't want to see it, don't look'. If it exists, it has an effect. It allows trolls to fester and grow support. It allows emnity to develop between fans. The experiment is failed, and I will not let it continue.
I have already affected change on this site on multiple occasions. I have success in this regard because I am relentless and will not back down, even if certain posters are alienated by my opinions. This will be no different.
I tend to agree with you.
Primarily the site should be a place to discuss NYCFC, and there should be a section to discuss the issues that affect NYCFC only.
NYCFC is part of the CFG, and another part of the site should be aimed at that. This will leave those that are only interested in the local club a section to visit, and those that are interested to a deeper level interested, it is also somewhere for fans to meet and talk about group issues.
There should perhaps be a general football section (Non NYCFC, Non City group) where leagues and international teams from around the world should be discussed.
Then perhaps an off topic section for fans of NYCFC to discuss what the hell they like that is not football related (you can stay away from here if you want, I will)
However having said I agree with you, not everyone who does disagree with you is a troll. I think the warzone has been a success, in allowing open debate, and differing points of view to be aired. If differing points of view are allowed to a certain level on all parts of the forum then thats fine.
For example Man City / CFG issues should not be brought up on a NYCFC section unless it directly affects the topic at hand (for example players that are coming over to NYCFC from City)
Before you come out with the we are NYCFC and dont want to discuss City Group or want Group fans, taking it off the forum also has a certain amount of head in the sand to it.... If I cant see it, it doesn,t exist.
