You guys on Shotsweb

Post by EastbankAndy » Sat Nov 30, 2019 9:43 pm

Wow!!

I think this site should be closed down as anyone who views this site would probably think it’s the death nell of a once well supported glorious club....... you don’t promote the good things about the club, only the negative. Have you ever considered that?

I’m sure this will get mocked or shot down but the majority of people I talk to who actually attend matches as opposed to sitting behind this media access say this site is toxic!!

Cmon..... give me your views and I bet I can counter your arguments......

Here's a view, Andy. This site is for the frank interchange of opinions about the club, by supporters. It's not a public relations or advertising site. The club itself can do that if it wishes to. It's in the nature of things that supporters will criticise if they think things are going wrong. After all, identifying problems has to be the first step in fixing them. Some will also praise when they see good things. Lately we have not seen so much that is good. (Look at the league table and check the number of games we have lost so far this season and you will see what I mean.) So you expect there to be a fair amount of negative comment.
OK, so my view is that the frank interchange of ideas is not of itself "toxic" as you put it. Some posters do rather overstep the mark with their criticisms, but they get censored by the moderators if they are out of line.

The beauty of this site is it caters for people of all ages and various knowledge of football.
As has been stated on here many times, if you don't like some of the comments then you have choices.
Ignore the ones you don't agree with, comment on them with the hope your view will be accepted, stop subscribing to it.
These open sights are not for the faint hearted. I don't think anyone who subscribes on here has gone unscathed.
A reasonable objection (language wise, for example) will be dealt with.

Agree 100% with this bit.
However, I do think there’s far too much negativity still, especially considering most recent form.


Disagree on that point. With the exception of Daggers away I’d say 2 wins and 2 draws in the league and promising new signings with encouraging improved performances makes November 2019 a good month.

Debate is a fundamental principle of all democratic society. Shotsweb is no different.

Yes there is stuff on here which is plain daft (dare I say ludicrous) at times, some strong opinion, some stuff we may regret in the morning when we sober up, but also some good honest points of view. I agree with some of it and some of it I don't, but I respect the view of the poster, even if I don't agree with it. That is democracy

Shotsweb isn't an "Official" earpiece of the club, or a "Ministry of Propaganda" but rather the opinions of the people, who in some way or the other, love this club.

If you don't like what you read, you have your choices.

Maybe it’s just me, but I am having difficulty in comprehending an increasing number of posts on this site.Possibly some persons do not have English as their first language.

I think that Stoo is slightly pro shots unlike the other chip on their shoulder bellends on their bland forum!

Every club in the country has a board like this and some are much worse!
Its just football talk as if you were in the pub debating nothing more....
