    really? if any of my three young lads had written that i'd be happy and encouraging.
    So would I, but I'd encourage them to proof read it and check it before posting.

    there's plenty of poorly written junk on here
    But if any of it is a link to a blog, then it's going to get the same treatment.
    and there's (probably) a rather crestfallen youngster now. personally, i'd rather see a little encouragement
    But the OP doesn't say 'hi, I'm 13 and looking for some encouragement', so I don't know who they are. Maybe their parent could encourage them. And if they're crestfallen they can pick themselves up. IMO a blog needs to be better written than the first post.

    That argument may hold up if there was something remotely constructive about any of the comebacks.
    So you don't think English lessons would help?

    You learn from taking chances and making mistakes, not hiding away. The poster has learned that there is a need to improve
    Ok, cool.
    but he or she has learned it in an unpleasant and avoidable way, and one of which some should be ashamed.
    I think you're being a bit fragile. How old do you think the OP is? I'm sure they get harsher treatment at school.

    There is a definite recurring theme here on NSC that it is "acceptable" to be particularly vile to those seeking to publish and promote journalistic projects regarding the Albion, probably fuelled by envy at even the gumption to try, let alone succeed, in such efforts.
    I think you're quite wide of the mark with the last bit. We've had a lot of journalistic projects promoted here in the past, often trying to make money out of the support here, and so people do react against it. Not because they're envious though.

    We get it - how dare they publish and seek to attain on this topic which I know so much about, is so dear to my heart? They must be a chancer, and a hack, and further yet a swine! How dare they and could they even seek to make a career of it! Snarl, gnash!
    Er, no.

    No one said pretend everything is wonderful. There's away to go about things. My point was that you should give constructive criticism rather than just act like a bunch of dicks.

    You acted like a dick by the tone of your post, along with some others. This is not the way to help a youngster improve their writing skills.
    Nothing in the original post said it was a youngster. You might think it's obvious because of the writing, but no, there are plenty of examples of poorly written posts on here, even by so called journalists.

      NSC can be a brilliant site at times, where members band together to achieve some great things. At other times it seems to be full of sanctimonious cliques of people sneering and belittling others. This is sadly the latter.
      and I can't believe I didn't contribute.

      Sensible ripostes. I'd say it is a noticeable trend that comments get nastier when someone exhibits a work that has wings beyond NSC, and if my comments seemed fragile it will be in frustration at that behaviour as it appears in life in general - that is to say A LOT - all sorts of people torn down by the merest of comments from those they ought not to respect, where the comments are more truly based on the commentators (commentors?) own interpretation of reality, and an ego-importance desire to be correct that x or y is difficult or impossible

      there is also an aspect of those who wield their egos on these pages which I suppose I shouldn't get put-out by... since I am doing the same but for a less populist audience


      after all this it's probably a palace troll

      Oh come on. This thread is very tame compared to some of bullying before (Hun).

      Anyone for a curry?

      As I'm sure a lot ok you know, Brighton are on the market for a striker, and the Argus are reporting that we are willing to break a transfer record again for one. The future being banded around is that our budget for one is 20mil. If this is the case I'm wondering who everyone thinks the Albion should fork out their huge cash sum for.
      I have, in fact, written a short blog post on this topic, and if people wouldn't mind checking it out it is theguidetobhafc.wordpress.com . Any feedback appreciated.

      Oh good grief.

      Their opening post is on here is very poor. If that's the standard of their blog, they really need to improve it before it's ready for the masses. And if a bit of criticism for a poorly written post is too upsetting, then maybe they're not ready to be doing a blog yet.

      Presumably they're quite young, and yes it's great that they're enthusiastic and having a go, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea to publish work that isn't ready yet. Better to tell them straight now and get things fixed before the blog reaches a wider audience. There's no point in pretending everything is wonderful if it isn't, you'd just set them up for a fall later.
      it seems too much of an automatic reaction though nowadays just to have a go first without even really considering (or reading) the material.

      some right pricks on this thread imo - would have liked at least a chance to read it before the OP was shouted down.
      Yes. Everybody has to start somewhere.

      Trig you are one of the best posters on here. Think you are being a bit harsh on this one though just my opinion
