  1. This is a bit of a weird take. I don't get why a 12 year old knowing about the KKK is inconceivable. I remember we watched Mississippi Burning in school when I was 12 or 13. It only takes a place like 4chan being where they find their 'friends' and I'm sure they'd learn about much worse shit.
  2. Cheers guys, looks like I'll be giving Squarespace a go.
  3. Can anyone recommend a good tool to build a website myself? I've found various online lists that put Wix up the top. I've also spoken to a friend who uses SquareSpace and finds it pretty easy to get your head round, though he had someone else build his website and only updates menus etc online so what he is finding easy is basically typing. I'll be building it myself and would like to be able to add features where clients can login in to see a map of their projects and ideally with data fields automatically updating based on spreadsheets. I've got a bit of time to do it so am more than happy to use something that has a bit more of a learning curve if it will ultimately be superior. Thanks!
  4. Oh don't get me wrong, I have no issue with Zaha posting it publicly. I think he's quite right to show people what some people face on a daily basis. The kid obviously **** up badly. My issue is with people thinking they're taking a morally superior position by laying into a child on social media. I don't care what anyone says, none of us grew up in the world these kids have where it's so easy to post something online and it **** you up forever. At 12 I would obviously have known what he did was wrong and wouldn't have done it myself, however I wont pretend for a second I wouldn't have said some pretty horrible shit several years past his age thinking it's funny.

    Murdoch Scum

    I think that's being a bit generous to be honest. I'm not sure I've ever had a conversation where someone hasn't known who Murdoch is. The point is more about what they write being having transparent motives rather than Murdoch himself though. I do try not to judge as I've met plenty of people who take positions that are insane to me, but are willing to reassess when challenged. I'm not the most patient person all the time and will often just assume they 'get it' and push back. I've always tried to engage but the current state of discourse has given me a shorter tether. Giving people the benefit of the doubt is something I'm working on as I appreciate I'm constantly reading and I do often find myself surprised with people that believe stuff without looking into it themselves. My sister is a good example. It's hard to take these positions without sounding like a snob but I do find it really frustrating how social media and the tabloid press means information is spread through thousands of people that don't critically assess the merits.
  6. Lifetime ban from the club I'm not against as that might teach him a lesson. A 12 year old being publicly named and dragged on twitter makes me really uncomfortable. With someone that age I think it would be great to sit them down with some Villa players to help them understand but it's whether it's justified giving up the time to do it.

    Murdoch Scum

    Sorry to be a dickhead, but if you read it and don't understand the politics you should probably move to TV news as I'm not sure reading is for you.
  8. Its often the case. There was the video of the guy bullying an autistic kid recently and the mum turned him on and was posting on social media how devestated she was. It obviously can be the parents but with free access to the Internet kids can get into all sorts of shitty rabbit holes being left to do their own thing.
  9. 'Shove a battered Mars bar up my arse and call me Angus' is my best effort.
  10. Really poor by VAR. Looks like Jon Moss is trying to level things out.

    Can't even pretend you just buy it for the tits anymore.
  12. I know 2 Scottish people who spent years wiping out their accent when they moved to London. By the time I met them I would never have guessed either wasn't from London. In a professional setting maybe I would if the other party couldn't understand me but otherwise **** other people.

    Formula One - 2020

    I'm leaning towards F1 even though I've not watched a race in about 10 years. Would be the first Villa game I've chosen not to watch for a long, long time.
  14. Not sure about that, mate. I'm sure he's a smart bloke but there are thousands destined to be similarly bland corporate execs following the same consulting route each year. Same could obviously be said for Purslow, but his track record of commercial deals is pretty impressive. Completely agree with the point you're making that this doesn't really mean anything in terms of footballing decisions.
  15. We only got 32,000 our first 2 seasons in the championship! Upper Trinity surely doesn't have 10k seats?
