I used to wait with baited breath for what awaited on the forum. I would drive up from Greenock to Aberdeen on a Sunday night, get into my flat, pour a glass of wine and log onto Greenock Morton Forum for the best interaction I could wish for, and was never left disappointed. NOW, I can’t believe how much it’s degenerated, from people trying to bully you out of posting how you actually feel, to the football manager mentality leading people to think they know better than a former Scotland international player, I really don’t know where to start. Suffice to say, there’s a lot of people on this forum who don’t have the first idea about football, and yet they have a great deal to say for themselves. Sorry guys I’m not sure where this is all heading but I’m seriously thinking of giving it all a miss.

Don't think I've ever been more horrified at a post on this forum than your last trolling attempt about being ashamed of winning at Celtic park. Next.

Peter Weatherson is the greatest player since Ritchie, and should be assigned 'chairman for life'

Did I use the word “ashamed”?

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Personally. I think the quality of trolls has declined. We had some complete roasters in the 'good old days' that had you gnashing your teeth. Now it is just mild toothache albeit, credit where credit is due, the OP is a decent effort at bampottery. Even VT has mellowed into a modern-day PuggsyTon.

Is working offshore something to boast about? I thought it was something you did as a last resort to earn money when nothing else was available! I'm saying that from someone who once took a job offshore for that reason.

Nobody else has picked up on the bit in bold. My bet is he's a 'Peeno Greejee-o' drinker, as he was probably laughed at by his fellow roustabouts for being a male Prosecco drinker. It gives him the kind of status that Blue Nun doesn't, but for the same price.

Anyone with any grumbles about the standard of debate on here might want a wee look at the Facebook group over the last couple of days.

Christ, that makes difficult reading.
