Just seems petty, I sounded rude because we get this every time someone posts twitter gets told it's not allowed and then they spend 4 pages whining about it. As much as I like Spurvert, his info is not allowed and A+C has stated this many times and has done so in regards to unsubstantiated twitter too. He almost always reiterates the rules in the opening post for every thread too, not to mention there's a stickied thread with the rules in it. It's just laziness to claim you didn't know when the rules aren't hard to find.

this is the rules thread - http://spurscommunity.co.uk/index.php?threads/the-rules-we-shall-be-assuming-you-have-read-these-and-act-accordingly.91333/

It is located 3 threads below this one.
Not all of us spend enough time on here to see everything which gets said. Surprisingly.

You did read the rules thread though right? The one I linked? Because in that it states not to post twitter unless it's JJ, even journo info is for player threads only.

I've read them at some point over the last few years yes. However they do tend to change, and I don't tend to take time out of my day to check if rules have changed on discussion forums to be honest. I always assume it's like every other forum in the world where the rules tend to go something like "don't be a twat and piss people off too much... if you wouldn't say it down the pub, don't say it here", etc.

Thank god I've got you and the other internet traffic wardens to keep me on the straight and narrow ;)

It should be, along with it being in the RO

Oh I'm sure it is somewhere, but there are bits which get posted in this thread which aren't in the RO, and the majority of the site's members I imagine don't have the inclination to scroll through 50 or 60 pages every single evening to get to the juicy bits.

A proper SC veteran would know that on SC the ITK threads are vastly different to the rest of the interwebs. Whilst we're prone to bouts of tangential posting, there has always been strict rules in regards to info posted.

Which have changed over time. And as I said above, keeping up with rule changes on internet discussion boards is never high on my to-do list as I try to make my way in the world. I apologise sincerely and assure you I will take my shame to my grave.

Except you made no attempt to even check the rules page before posting twitter info which has always been problematic, you knew back then twitter info was prone to misposting, yet felt no inclination to check if things had changed. What with there being no twitter thread, that would've been a big clue to a rule change, a quick 90 second perusal of the rules would've led you to posting the info in the player threads.

Kind of hoping we don't have much ITK to discuss this summer tbh. Need our targets lined up already and to have them done, largely, before pre-season starts.

There will always be info, it's accuracy might vary though but someone on the foodchain will pick up bits and bobs even if we buy all our players before July 1st.

I bet you're the guy at work who bollocks people for not returning staplers to their rightful owners after use, or worse, returning them with no staples in. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I thought this too. Then I remembered I support Spurs.

Well my little boxes full of outrage on the internet, I'm going to bed. Is there a thread where I need to say that, or is this sufficient?

It's been fun. And remember, it's only words on a fucking screen. :D

Why? You've already labelled me as some sort of internet wannabe policeman, which is way off the mark. I'm basically a chilled out entertainer.

All I can see is a bunch of people trying to help you avoid getting banned from this thread.
