I think that this is all a bit embarrassing for Fenty.


He doesn't appear to embarrass easliy or he would have taken the hint and p!ssed off from GTFC years ago

Quoted from GrimRob


This might help (my italics): Libel is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give a product a negative image


Isn't it a bit late to worry about giving Grimsby Town FC PLC a negative image

Fenty, you have guided the good ship GTFC from championship to the brink of regional, semi-pro football in your ten year tenure of the club and now from where I amk sat and ONLY MY OPINION, it seems you are getting so desperate that you are attempting to bully fans in to keeping quiet!

To me this seems to sum up the whole enterprise of you and GTFC. . . shambolic at best, downright incompetent.

You have been in charge when GTFC has been practicallky destroyed.

Years ago you made a ridiculous statement about not wanting to devalue the product. . . .Well Jonny boy yopu have beyond our wildest dreams well done. . . . now sue me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quoted from SitePublisher
From now on any posts which libel Mr Fenty or any of the other GTFC board members will be removed. IP Addresses, names and e-mail addresses will be recorded and anyone who has been warned will be banned from the site. You may think you are hiding behind a made up name but you are not really.


So do you have a law degree or are you a Barrister?
I thought it was up to a court to decide what is and what isn't libelous.
What your doing is stopping free speech IMO

If Fenty and his minions think there is someone libeling him on here let him take them to court and let them to decide.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Does the originator of this board need to be a barrister to decide whether something should be removed? Stifling free speech is the worst he could be accused of. If I was Rob I'd be watching the board like the proverbial hawk now. If stuff is libellous then the board administrators may have to take some of the legal flak. A tall order for them when we are talking about people who cannot engage their brains before typing whilst hiding behind a user name.....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Quite. Thing is though, there's no point in sueing someone for libel if they haven't got any net worth. So if you're totally skint, just say what the fcuk you like.

We don't need to be barristers. If you read what I said the criteria for removing a post are pretty simple - don't make a factually incorrect statement about John Fenty (and other employees or board members). You can say whatever you want as long as it's an opinion. But if you lie about Fenty or someone similar it can't be allowed. Basically as other people have said on here that means almost everything that has ever been said on this forum is ok, but a few people have recently crossed the line and twisted facts so that they no longer resemble the truth. That's not stifling free speech at all, it's the law of the land, and no other web site, newpaper or forum would be able to legally publish them either! We don't need to watch like a hawk, it's not unreasonable for us to take a while to notice something, but if anyone keeps posting things that can't be proved then they will be banned (nobody has yet done so) and copies of their posts retained.

Don't forget also that the original posts that Fenty objected to are still hanging over the authors and the Fishy as well, as stated in his e-mail. The fact that they have not been removed from the public eye does not mean that they have gone away. One of the authors I know has contacted Fenty personally to discus it which is probably what should have happened in the first place.

What part of the post removed earlier on the previous page was a lie or twisted truth?

Rob, this isn't just about Fenty and GTFC board members. Contributors to any forum should refrain from libelling ANYONE.
