Born2Suffer, were/are you a playground bully by any chance? Your mob mentality tells me I shouldn't even bother, but let me try. First, the answer to "How to veto Vito?" is very simple - Yahoo! has provided an ignore button. I'm sure all the posters are aware of the button and its purpose. But let me ask you mate, if you're so disinterested in threads that I post, why not just click the button? Why bother trying to induce others to boycott or bully someone else? Do you realize that this is an unmoderated forum? Which is why Yahoo! have provided an ignore button and also other ways to report offensive posters. Why don't you just use those if you don't like me or my posts instead of trying to induce everyone else to do so. Since this is an unmoderated forum, I will continue to post as I see fit. If folks have problems, they can certainly bring it up and I will address it, but why the unnecessary name-calling and abusive language toward me? Have I ever used abusive or foul language with you mate? Live and let live. Cheers and happy 2010 to you!
VITO, curiosity got the better of me and so I removed you from my ignore list just to see what sort of response I have elicited from you. It is refreshing to see that you can string a sentance or two together, which makes it all the more puzzling as to why you persist with pasting newspaper articles on to OUR board.
And no, you have not used abusive or foul language against me, but that would be difficult, as I have only ever read copy-cat posts from you.
If I want to read the opinions of professional journalists I will buy a paper. This board is for ordinary fans to share views about our team and football in general, with the odd bit of banter thrown in where appropriate. It is not, in my view, a vehicle for outsiders to try and appear clever by parroting the words of others.
Question, do you bombard your own team's board or is it confined to a chosen few who you wish to annoy? Can you not see how pointless it is to use other people's thoughts in lieu of your own? I am not a playground bully. Instead, I am a reasonably intelligent 61 year old football fan who would happily welcome you here as soon as you start to offer your own thoughts on the beautiful game.
You say you will continue to post as you see fit and that prerogative must apply to me also, you can't have it both ways.
So I'll make you an offer. Stop the plagurising, start posting your own stuff and I for one will welcome you. Carry on as you are and I will hit the Ignore button again and try to encourage others to do the same........................You decide!!
Oh! and Happy New Year to you too.

Born2Suffer, I'm not trying to take credit for anything. Unfortunately, the Milan board or the La Liga boards are not as active as the Premiership boards. So as a fan of football, when I do have the time to get away from the real world, I read articles online that interest me. When I read something that interests me, I usually like to know the opinions of others on the subjects as well. So I usually post my thoughts or comments followed by the article itself, so that the reader gets the context of my questions or comments. It just happens to be my style of posting, as you have yours. I can apologize if that came off as trying to appear "more intelligent" for that was never my intent. What I do know is that I do NOT presume to be condescending enough to tell you or anyone else how to post, or whether or not I will read or judge it unless you write a certain way. I'm not implying you are condescending, or a judgemental fool, but just saying that I would NOT want to appear that way! ;))
Having said that, I'm not trying to get you or anyone else to like me or my posts; just trying to gather thoughts on articles I personally find interesting. I think we both agree that Yahoo! provides the ignore button for all to use as they see fit. So hopefully, you see this post for what it is (neither an insult, nor an apology) and we continue talking on future threads. Or I will carry on without ever knowing your thoughts on subjects I find interesting and post on any board Yahoo! allows me to post on! :))
PS: If I came off as a bit of a pacifist, it's because I am!
