I continue to alert people to the way The Glasgow Herald runs it's so called contributions web page.
An article appeared recently in the herald under the title, "Wanted: referendum editor to head new £5m BBC unit" Written on Saturday 25 May 2013 By Marcus Gardham Herald Political Editor.. 

Separatist supporter Dorothy Devine posted referring to what she saw as the bias of the press and TV against the separatist campaign, a typically dull predictable post. She finished by saying "and (I) assume I am far from alone"

I posted the following reply.

"I'm in no doubt that the posts which we read on a regular basis on this topic will reassure you that you are indeed not alone. How you deal with the fact however that you are also not alone in your paranoia and dread of the referendum humiliation coming your way is another matter entirely. Blaming all and sundry while casting smears and baseless accusations about prejudice and deception will be of little comfort to you when the reckoning comes. Then you will have to add discredit to your feelings of bitterness and defeat"

This has been going on for a long time, they continually refuse to print my posts, they are of course entitled to do this. I would however urge everyone to read the standard of some of the posts from the snp/separatist/cybernats which do get printed and decide for yourself whether this business stinks or not, your decision.

Aaww! Diddums upset?

I have had the misfortune to see some of your posts on the herald and to say the other posters 'mopped the floor with you' would be an understatement.

Have you considered the following?
You are not up to the level of intellectual debate required.
The herald being a serious news outlet would not (I believe) want their posting contributions dragged down to the purile level of this blog, whatever you call it.

How many posts have you blocked from this site and it's 4-5 followers (including the cat)

I understand the Scotsman allows any old dross on it's site and it's pro keeping the colonies. Right up your street.

Do I block your posts Mr./Ms. anonymous? leading with your chin here right?

Anyone who is interested in the reasons for the demise of The Glasgow Herald. Read this 'anonymous' clown's comments and note that this is the kind of reader that regards the Herald as a "serious news outlet". If this anonymous bozo didn't exist I would have to invent him/her.

I too have had the bad luck to see some of your contributions to the Herald - you are an embarrassment to Paisley and the Labour party you say you support. Give it a rest old man and spare us all 'red' faces when we say you are one of our councillors.

Councillor, I thought that bit about 'casting smears and baseless accusations about prejudice and deception' was a cracker.

Read it to my granny, though and she gave me one of those granny looks and said 'Should yon man be casting those particular stones, what with him living in a glass house?'

On reflection, she does have a point.

Since I have become accustomed to making allowances for you, I will simply ask you to elaborate.

If you want me to take this seriously I must insist on you identifying yourself.

Failing that I will just have to rely on the usual stench of snp lies emanating from it. And judge it accordingly.

Maybe it was sent though by one of those tens of thousands of Labour for independence people? Or have I "taen that joke too far" ?

Here is an idea fatman - change your login and id, they will never guess it is you, until they look at the grammar, and, of course, the idiotic nonsense that you spout. That will never get published either!! You are paranoid old man - it happens with age, just relax a bit.

It's the gift that keeps on giving, what do you think of someone who comes on here talking like this but remains cowering behind anonymity? Moron? yes, Coward? yes, Nationalist? yes, how could I not print it? these people I am glad to say do not like me.
