'Tis not the job of a moderator to stop people writing here. The rules are pretty simple:

reported ad hominem attacks will be investigated (and if found to be true) or write stuff that could get the site into trouble

and you'll either be warned / your post deleted, or - worst case scenario -  banned either temporarily or permanently.

This particular thread has had a vigorous exchange of views, and perhaps more heat than light. But the quality of the debate - it seems to me at least - is down to the lack of information.  That, in and of itself, means that whatever side you happen to be on is for a fan, very frustrating.

So, I have no intention of closing threads just because the quality of the postings isn't great. That is not the role of a moderator.

If you wake up the following morning you can always delete something you wish you'd never said.

Sigh. 

Just as the Club receives praise for inclusiveness some of our fans are quite happy to indulge in mockery based on how 'funny' foreign names are and how 'funny' foreign accents are. 

Cut it out.

Apologies, it wasn’t meant to be racist in any way, it was because it sounds like the guys name.  I’ve never seen the clip as being racist, I just assumed she never knew the words and made them up as she went along!

Exactly what I was thinking. There was talk of Morton being a feeder club for an English club last season. Hope we don't become one.

I wouldn’t mind being a Feeder club for Barnsley, they have a youngster called Buck Rodgers who is highly rated. Hopefully we won’t Tumble and Fall this season. Can’t help but be positive for this season, It’s just the way I’m feeling.  I’m glad there will be no ‘ We are the People’ at Firhill this year.

Depends how good the players we got were. We got Dodds and Colin West from Chelsea, but we also got Derek Johnstone as player manager.

Plenty of brits get silly jokes made about their names....

that's ok....

but don't dare try it with somebody from another country!!!

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

A guy told his friend that he wasn't happy about a pair of trainers that he'd bought. His friend asked why. He replied he looked at the box and it said "TAIWAN".

Silly? Yes. Racist? No way. Who is the "target" of any racism?

By the way, anybody who would like to buy my shares in the club is more than welcome to them. He or she simply needs to pay me back exactly what I paid for them over 20 years ago.

Indeed, you will upset the snowflake brigade who are very apparent on this forum.

I'm sure I'd be accused of being a snowflake on many issues.

I just don't find the fact that "Wan" sounds like the Glasweigian form of "One", and is a popular Chinese name, particularly offensive.

My sense of humour comes from 47 years as a shipbuilder on the clyde.  If white knuckle guys like jordanhill jag  think I was been racist ,then  i'm afraid  he is way off the mark and is a prime example of your modern day snowflake who can't recognise a joke.

Anyone who uses the term "snowflake" to describe other people is a complete and utter tosser.

Do you think so?

If it is then my judgement is wrong, and I would regret that. If I think about it, I find it difficult to see where the offence would lie. It sounds to me like a fairly predictable play on words. Not very funny, not very offensive.

what do I know, I'm not Chinese.

My kids have a book - Hamish the hairy haggis - it’s pretty funny actually (albeit when you’ve read it to them for the third night on the bounce it starts to lose its appeal). Anyway it is full of stereotypes and humour based on perceived Scottish culture. I find it pretty amusing. You may or may not find it offensive. It is certainly not racist. Making a joke based on culture does not automatically make it racist. It’s also not necessarily lazy, it can actually be quite well thought out and funny.

Lets hope if this rumour is true, we see our fortunes turnaround and we can get a Championship winning team on the park.

Err.... Is this you introducing the Chinese themed puns to the thread? Is that wise at this stage?

I wouldn't like Tibet on it! (Ooft, politically sensitive too)
