    Nothing to do with ccfc appatently.

    Not sure why he gets stick from some on here, would you prefer the main CT reporter to be a SISU fanboy who badically gives the club free PR by taking their side and bigging them up at every opportunity?

    Not a fan of him or his lego hair, or the clickbait nature of the Telegraph on social media. But everyone who assumed it would be something CCFC related, who is now slagging Gilbert off, is a clown. He didn't say it was in the first place.

    So, it was one story about council cuts which became four separate articles with lots of repetition. :rolleyes:

    It was probably the story about Tollbar island underpass being fully open, the CT have been knocking one out over it.....

    From the poster who seriously put a thread up suggesting that the council had "plants" on this board to try and impact opinion amongst our fans....

    On the basis I knew who they were. 1 of them very much tried to stir up and impact opinion.

    What basis do you have to say they weren't?

    It's pretty obvious they did and still do. Same goes for SISU, the club and others involved there too.

    Tell you what though, if anybody would like to pay me to try and form opinion round these parts, my rates are eminently reasonable.

    Because there's no evidence to say that they had "plants on here". I was very pro ACL (still am) and tried to influence opinion, but not because they paid me - because they were in the right. I wonder if you think I was that 'plant'?

    Isn't there?

    So you have no basis to say they didn't but will keep arguing it? Based on what?

    You weren't on here when "ACL" were here as such, they went in 2014 when Wasps bought it so I probably wouldn't have thought somebody who wasn't even on here was the plant as I can't see into the future. Very strange. o_O

    Don't know how this forum works but normally an admin would be able to see a lot more identifying information than regular users.

    And you wouldn't be much use trying to influence opinion subtly if you announced yourself, either!

    Although if BigDogTimFisherLOL registers, maybe he'll be hiding in plain sight...
