Protest over Forum Name

Rob

Mourinho’s Assistant
Today is a sad day for democracy. Many of the members of Soccer gaming feel hard done by this dictatorship of moderators that have assembled in the Football Manager 2005 lounge.

The scene of the crime: http://www.soccergaming.tv/showthread.php?threadid=117272

The offender: rpvankasteren

I feel the vote for the stadium name was unjust and undemocratic. The vote closed when the people running the show got what they wanted, TROD could of put in one vote, and that could have been the only vote because the other 28votes are basically useless due to the undemocratic nature of this count.

Today reminds me of the past few weeks in the Ukraine and ranks amongst the voting between Stalin and Sergei Kirov in the congress of the Communist party in the Soviet Union in 1934.

Me, Deutschland and many other members demand a recount of the votes on the stadium name pronto, with a set date and time for when the poll closed.

If our demands are not met.

We will formally begin exercising our right to non-violent protest, which will occur in the following order:

Ahh, that is where you are mistaken, young Padawan. The Force is a living thing, it is in you and all around you... you must learn to become one with the Force to truly understand it.

Do not try... there is no try. With age and training, you too will start to understand.

They are a great moderating crew, the epitome of moderating. Particularly that Parra Power, he is an amazing mod. All hail the Football Manager Forum mods. :Bow: :Bow: :Bow:

YES! YES!

:( We will miss our dearly departed Stephen, a great friend, I am sure everyone will agree. His humour made awkward situations easy, and his caring, sensitive side also made us feel so relaxed during tough times.

Please, everyone, send his family your deepest condolences...
