Enough is enough. I have taken the decision to give Pete a hiatus from the site and cleaned up some of his drivel and insults of the past few days.

Enjoy a nonsense free zone til the end of the month, then I'll open a vote to see it we'll welcome him back.

Good decision Daniel, just before I had decided to block him myself.

As you know, I put Pete on my ignore list some time ago. Even so, as I swap back and forth from laptop and iPhone, when I'm not logged I have occasionally caught some of his contributions - including some of his particularly distasteful stuff most recently. I agree with your decision 100% Daniel, if for no other reason than to give Pete some space and time to sort himself out.

Thank you Daniel. There has been an incongruity about posts from that poster when compared to everyone else.

Very sad because somebody in his position has a very hard time.

Go away for a few weeks and return to this - WOW


Dan is the moderator of the forum and someone who knows Pete well so it must have been a big decision for him to make a temporary suspension but as the moderator I will support his decision.

Pete has been through it recently and maybe this board is his way of trying to cope with things. I've obviously missed what was written but I'm sure there was no harm meant

"but I'm sure he meant no harm"

Yes I agree... as long as you are white.

I know that many of you know Pete in the real world, I don't.

I am also sympathetic that he is having a bad time at the moment.

However, that doesn't give him the right to make racial slurs and pass judgement like he has recently.

I consider his comments in his M. Ali thread to be racist and I think Daniel, for the good of the board, has made the right decsion.

TS, since I put Pete on my ignore list I have been resolutely silent where Pete's posts have been concerned. This is despite frequent abusive and indeed threatening messages on here from him to me. You may not have seen the most recent unpleasantness, but I'm sure you must have seen at least some of the rest? (obviously assuming you get to see them before Pete edits them later on?). Pete has undoubtedly been through some difficult times in the last year or so, haven't we all, and maybe Pete's way of dealing with his is via a public forum - it's not my way, it's probably not yours, and I suspect it's not the way of anyone else on here. Should he be banned as a result - absolutely not. Should he be banned for a long history of abuse, threats and unpleasantness, culminating in some vile racist shite - definitely so.

Personally, I believe Pete has some serious mental health issues, and I would hope he takes the time out to get some professional help.

I agree with you, Wessex. I stopped reading Pete's posts some time ago. Partly because I often didn't understand them and also because, when I did understand them, I was not always comfortable with the content. Consequently, I did not realise that there was some personal content.

We know that Pete has had some tough times. We do not know what emotional effect that may have had, and if those emotions have been released through his posts on here. But lets be clear. Rantings and ravings, racism and other anti-social comments are not for this forum, whatever the motivation. So, well done Daniel for putting a halt to it..

A cooling-off period is, therefore, in my view, the correct first step. Let's see where that takes us.

In a week when the democratic process was undermined by the assassination of a fine public servant in the UK and 50 people were shot dead by another idiot in the USA; can we tolerate any racist, homophobic or any other none PC behaviour? NO!

But everybody needs a second chance if they show remorse.

I miss Pete's lucid more sensible rants.

Has he shown enough remorse yet?

We need the USA on our side after Brexit.
