    Don't quit your day job dude as humour doesn't seem your strong suit. The poster who was banned straight up called me a wanker in a post. That was a direct violation of the forum rules on this site but people get heated sometimes and what he said isn't going to make me any less inclined to ***** and moan about praising the Yanks on a Cdn soccer supporters forum.  Also I am no Brit so the term doesn't really get under my skin. He went so far as to tell me to go back to my circle jerk behaviour which would have led to spittin chiclets on the ice 50 years ago, but this is a soccer forum and banter is banter so you know, at the end of the day, I wasn't really hurt.
    Now I must say I'm much more a mathematician than an English major, but frankly I don't see a whole hell of a lot of difference between your 4 word description and that 'unholy 2 word abomination' that prompted this ban.
    On the other hand, your Klu Klux Klan remark is quite a racist statement which is really really over the top branding of his alleged trangression in describing this flu. Ironically, it also brought to mind how the Chinese government treat the Wiegers; today, not 60 years ago.

    Wiping out a couple of years of Valour posts seems like an insanely heavy handed response.  A 'not cool man' response would have been sufficient. A pandemic doesn't mean the end of free speech. Censored for the 'c' word? It sure as **** ain't the Flin Flon flu. I don't think it is appropriate for a politician or public figure to refer to the flu that way but this seems an over the top reaction on a soccer forum. Whereas I think the politician who went after Canada's Dr Tam is a racist (other) c-word, I don't see any WHO directives on renaming the Spanish flu or the Ebola virus which are both very ethnically/geographically specific.

    Well that's a rather a broad stroke taken by the mod(s).

    Even the ones where he called me a wanker and a circle jerk participant cause I suggested a US fan girls' site would be more appropriate for his gushing over the USWNT?

    First, for Lofty, we don't know what happened because the mods could have contacted him beforehand, or not. But that still does not ensure they followed anything like due process.
    In my case, the moderator did not only NOT attempt a conversation with me, he cut all possibility of such a thing short. I wrote various pms over a number of months asking him to respond, to give me his name, to explain what happened. Nothing. I was banned on false pretexts (and when I was asleep, living then in Europe).  Then when I awoke and asked what he was talking about, why I was being warned, and questioned why they would warn me about the post I made, he straight out banned me. For not respecting him. So I would not be surprised if others are treated with the same arbitrary, incompetent principles, which also denote a lack of debate amongst mods, and severe insecurity on their part about the decisions  they are making. So the board is in ruins, only the good will of honest posters makes it seem otherwise. 
    We all know that this website exists in part for Rintaran and others to scratch out their sublime blog posts,. It is their pet board, and we are hear to feed their numbers, or so they think. This is the deal that was made when we migrated here. We are their cannon fodder. So their essays of sporting wisdom with 16 readers  each about take priority over the entire history of the Voyageur forum and decades of using it to drive Canadian soccer knowledge and support.

    Someone really needs to start a separate thread on sanctioning and move the debate there. So this thread can be about CPL expansion again. 
    I will say this though. TFC having so many Americans is a joke. And MLS is struggling at developing young domestic talent on both sides of the border. 
    Also I doubt the CSA moves to force the MLS clubs to CPL. Hell they were allowing Fury to continue in USL. Fury pulled the plug on their own.
