    I see it differently to you
    No problem, I'm open to different points of view.
    what if he wasn't literate is that really a problem
    No it isn't. I think it would be a good idea for such a person to let the audience know in advance though. Otherwise we're basically saying 'never take the piss out of anyone for anything in case...'. As it is though, it seems they don't have such a problem, and they were just being slap dash with their first post.
    If a one legged person was racing a 2 legged person and the 2 legged person beat them you wouldn't say mate you shouldn't be running you only have one leg.
    As I said, it would be helpful to know if the writer had a problem with language. If we can see one of the runners has 1 leg, then we obviously know running is more difficult for them, and we'd react accordingly.

    It's not only you that loves to pick up on the spellings grammar etc
    Hopefully I don't do it for every post. I like to do it if I feel it might be slightly humorous or if I feel the poster is being rude etc. Even in the thread in question I made grammatical mistakes myself, which people commented on, which I saw the funny side of.

    there are many on here that will kick the poster and stifle them and their ability to write 'proper english'.
    I wouldn't want to be guilty of that. If I realise someone has difficulty writing English, I don't think I'll criticise them for it.

    There have been occasions here where it's clear the poster has problems (such as mental health issues) and many posters are taking the piss, and I always stick up for the poster who has the issues. One well known example comes to mind.

    And that doesn't seem to be the case here anyway.

      The real problem for the OP is that there are a lot of football blogs out there. How can you make your blog not just good reading but ESSENTIAL reading?

      Although if you write for the fun and not for the following I guess it doesn't really matter.

      Fair enough Trigg, i am not having a DIG just at you, there are many that will mock the dyslexic and not even consider what long term damage they could do to that persons confidence.
      People will not just start with the phrase i am dyslexic please don't judge me, it just doesn't happen.

      Don't stop taking the piss Trigg it's where 15,000 of you post have come from!!, we just need to be careful and get to see what a poster can take first before destroying them!!

      And even if you want it to become essential reading, it's ok if it's not to start with - all bloggers have to start somewhere.

      No I know. And I don't mind people criticising my posts, but if I don't agree then I'll say so. I think several of us posted quick criticisms of the opening post, which would have been crap for the new and young poster to read. Knowing that the poster was a genuine young fan, I'm sure we'd have been more selective with our comments.

      I also happen to think that the chastising of those that were critical is over the top and something of a band wagon. Such outrage that some of us took the piss a little. Pot/kettle springs to mind.

      I understand. I think it's impossible to get right all the time though. With our new signings, many here are mocking the bed-wetters who have nothing to moan about - but are those bed-wetters just annoying cockwomles that like to moan, or are they suffering from depression etc?

      Don't stop taking the piss Trigg it's where 15,000 of you post have come from!!
      Indeed, to stop would require a vow of silence. A dream for many I know, but I'm not here to grant wishes.

      You want the impossible.

      There is a touch of playground stuffed aimed at any newbie but with being unnecessarily nasty at times it always tends to be one up man ship that comes from the higher number of posters, who knows maybe they just have small willies.

      To be fair, I think even if you're just writing because you enjoy it, most people have a natural desire for some form of validation.

      I wouldn't write the match reports I've produced for the last couple of seasons on here, if I didn't think a significant number of people were a. reading them, and b. enjoying reading them. A decent number of pageviews and a handful of positive comments become your reward. It would (IMO at least) be difficult to find motivation to put the time in, if neither were forthcoming.

      FWIW, we did an analysis of one at a point during last season and my NSC report had twice the views of Naylor's Argus report of the same match
