The gentleman claimed I named a couple of his chums on FF.

He was trying to be sinister but just didn't have the presence to carry it off.

Let me spell it out clearly for the gentleman and his masters - if I ever feel the need to name and shame an ageing bully I'll do so under my own name and and it won't be a momentary mention on a messageboard.

FF doesn't allow the promotion of intimidation and falsehood unlike other websites whose cowardice shames them and the club they purport to support. Lies and thuggery will not work with us.

I'm not involved in all the politics, but there's another Rangers forum and i think the average mental age is 12, and the iq is 20. When all the liquidation stuff was going on they were more concernced in disagreeing with anything voiced on here. They seem to hate follow follow more than they love Rangers. Needless to say i dont log on that site now.

The individuals concerned have had an issue with GS long before David Leggett came to their attention. Cowardly scumbags. Threatening otherror fans is just what they do then they have the hard neck to get offended because a couple of the bams get publicly exposed for it.

Sadly true, more interested in disrupting the harmony of the Bears and some spoke of their wish for liquidation rather see the club work in any way with Dingers. Sickening :(

You're right.

That particular forum is a disgrace in all honesty.

I know a few people who post on it and they are good, decent Rangers fans but it seems to me they are very much in the minority. They get more excited by slagging RST/FF/MD than they do supporting Rangers.

It is abundantly clear you have no idea what SDF was talking about in Leggat's blog.

Mate, Leggat was completely in the wrong and should have issued an apology.

However, SDF is milking what is fundamentally a side-show.

The central issue is that an unofficial group of Rangers fans resorts to atrocious behaviour in order to intimidate others. This isn't new - it's being going on for years.

What makes this particularly troubling is that said group is embraced by figures within the club.

At least I know that all of those boards are run by people that care about this club, the fact that their opinions differ from here is only normal.

You either threaten them or you dont.

At a guess I would say that when the recipient of the threat doesn't feel threatened, then said threat has failed and is therefore an attempted threat. In much the same way as if you try to kill someone and fail, it would be attempted murder.

P.S. Just in case anyone panics, I am in no way suggesting that what happened to GS is in any way comparable to attempted murder.

You're right that it is shameful there are divisions internally when we have so many enemies externally. I really don't understand the mentality of a bear wishing ill on another bear especially when we have so many wishing ill on us a group. That said I think the divisions are overstated at times. Folk that are on Ff or other boards all the time tend to think every bear is and for good or ill they aren't. 9/10ths of the bears I know will have no idea this incident even happened.

Curiously enough, I find the opposite to be the case. It's unfair to say 'they hated the blue knights' though, we don't all think as one.

They were jumping in bed with everyone else, first bill ng, then bill miller and then charles green. What does that tell you? And there was alot of uncouth talk about certain people on here. As i say i have no ties to anyone. This is my view and my view alone.

I think its a **** of a site, my opinion only.

No there isn't. VB has stopped posting articles on RM, they haven't done for months now. There was a big fall out with RM Admin over VB members dictating (or trying to dictate) how they ran their board.

thats a change then because not that long ago vb were running rm like pupet masters. dictating who was banned while remaining untouchable no matter what they said or threatened,.

I don't think anybody else is confused mate. I hold no brief for GS and I've nothing against him. I don't know him. However, it's pretty clear what he's saying: a threat was made to him but as he dismissed it and was not troubled by it he regards the threat as an attempted threat.

If you disagree with what he's saying fair play but let's not get Jesuitical re his use of 'attempted' here.

The gentleman claimed I named a couple of his chums on FF.

He was trying to be sinister but just didn't have the presence to carry it off.

Let me spell it out clearly for the gentleman and his masters - if I ever feel the need to name and shame an ageing bully I'll do so under my own name and and it won't be a momentary mention on a messageboard.

FF doesn't allow the promotion of intimidation and falsehood unlike other websites whose cowardice shames them and the club they purport to support. Lies and thuggery will not work with us.

Hope you just handed over the tie - It's not worth it.

I don't think it is like saying that at all mate. You can quibble about his use of the word 'attempted' if you wish but it's now crystal clear what GS's claim is. If folk are saying the claim is untrue fair enough, they'll no doubt tell us all why they believe it to be untrue. However, I think this game of semantics should be beneath us all.

It's pretty obvious what Suck is saying.

The person who approached him tried to make him feel threatened by what he said. It didn't work.

The bigger picture here is that the lies which are spread around on certain blogs and websites are dangerous and are obviously left there for this reason.

It is wrong.

fer fecks sake mate that's like saying this was an attempted post

I'll try and help out here.

A threat is only a threat if it carries with it the real prospect that the threat will be carried out, and also if it results in changed behaviour on the part of the threatened.

In this case, as Suck has made it clear that he didn't feel in any away intimidated by the threat, and therefore has no intention of changing any of his behaviours as a result, he is describing it as an attempted threat because it was completely unsuccessful in achieving its aim, ie, to make Suck change his behaviour in future.

Does that help you?

Anyway, whatever the according to OED definition of a threat might be, it is outrageous that anyone proporting to be a Rangers fan should be threatening another over his legitimate opinions expressed about our club.

Personally,I probably wouldn't either but I have to disagree with the general point you're making pal. Again, I know nothing of the ins and outs of this incident but even if I'm not troubled by certain behaviour, I think it would still be legitimate for me to highlight that behaviour if I believed it was unacceptable in some way.

but if you read the OP suck has not mentioned any forum he states an individual people are jumping in and making assumptions that the individual was or was not representing a particular forum

Threats and intimidation only work when you are prepared to become a victim and bow to them.

Those who make them are not fond of the light being shone on their activities.

Those who seek to excuse such behaviour or muddy the waters are even more cowardly.
