Are You "Anyone But England"?

There would be no consistency in being ABE and ABF. It would in fact be impossible.
Only if you ignore temporality. If we allow for the fact that a perspective can shift according to context, then moving from ABE to AB* is logical if the essential belief had to be "Anybody but..." and England were no longer an option.

I posted this on another thread in a reply to ddddraig.


Now I know three vegans, and two of them are complete cunts, so it seems that not eating meat means there's a very high likelihood that you'll turn into complete cunt. Unless of course these people were already complete cunts, and turned to veganism in a bid to become even bigger cunts.
Stop this pointless cross-thread beef. And fuck off with your ludicrous trolling theory about non meat eaters too.

Unfortunately that appears to be the main motivation for the creation of this thread. It is fairly obvious that the OP and some of his cronies are relentless in their pursuit and harassment in order to wind up a certain individual using any excuse to "have a go".

I thought the thread title and opening post were actually quite good and that it was a reasonable question to ask. Whether you agree with him or not, I thought that ddraig gave a reasonable and passionate answer to the original question, however this has led to a torrent of personal abuse, ad-homs, dick pics and the last straw has to be the drunken death threat, which has hopefully now been removed. Absolutely disgraceful behaviour which has hopefully now been nipped in the bud.

The presence of an ABE opinion should give license for ignorant folk to hurl abuse whenever they feel like it, almost as if they feel they have a right to do so.

It's all good, man

Considering the things which don't appear to be "obvious" to you, I'm rather inclined to take what you see as "obvious" with a rather large pinch of salt.

It's no wonder you consider ddraig's behaviour to be "reasonable", given that yours has been equally appalling, and don't even have the excuse of conviction to justify yours. :rolleyes:

Hmm, now who is that making me think of...?

ABE news update...

(which should be Wales' Thomas wins Tour de France)

tbf even though I haven't been closely following the tdf, in the bits of coverage that I have seen, his "Welshness" appeared to be pointed out fairly regularly, it's just a shame that the BBC had to spoil it with their usual biased headline formula.

English winner = English
English loser = British
Welsh, Scottish, NI winner = British
Welsh, Scottish, NI loser = Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish

It's subtle.

They did choose to illustrate the story with a photo of him in front of a Welsh flag, tbf.
True...however that just highlights the biased headline. I don't believe are any pictures of him brandishing a British flag in this tdf, it was Wales all the way. So they had to make sure the got their bit of subtle cultural appropriation in. ABE folk are used to this sort of thing.

Revel in it, then. Nothing defines the futility of short term gratification like the self indulgent wallowing of nationalists in their righteous aggrieved feelings of slight.

Fill your boots. And shut up going on about it.

This thread is fine, it's not attached to any particular sport and is a good enough repository for all things ABE related. (thanks OP :thumbs: ) No spoon required.

Oh yeah, and I nearly forgot...and belated congratulations to all the fellow ABE's on our 13th straight World Cup win.

...a mere technicality. It wasn't originally and according to the OP SpoonMeister... "It’s not just a football thing, tbf. Football is just the current piñata for the ABE crowd!".

It was only moved because someone who wasn't interested in football related talk complained at the high concentration of footie related talk.

Ok, a bit of a change of tack eh? I have no idea what you're on about. Are you another one of his wingmen? No usernames were harmed in the making of that post, however if you have a genuine complaint, I suggest you report it to the UN human rights commission for crimes against humanity.

Given that the openly admitted intention of the thread creator was to stir, provoke and wind up a particular individual think the descriptive name is right on the money. I'm just grateful that the spin off is that I now have somewhere to post any ABE related tidbits as and when. All's well that ends well. :thumbs:
