    Default Identities of posters on Irish football site sought...

    Some posters made allegations against individuals in Bray Wanderers FC on Foot.ie, and that site received a letter asking for the identities of those parties to be disclosed. The site itself has shut down its Bray Wanderers section, with an unusual "hope you're happy now" message to the Solicitors.

    A neat reminder that anonymity doesn't mean immunity.

    Is Denis O'Brien a member of Bray Wanderers?

    Only joking, only joking

    Ahern's solicitors tried it on with six of us here, including me, about five or six years ago. I'm assuming this solicitor has a stronger case than the ridiculous fishing expedition Ahern's solicitors went on...

    But some of the stuff is nuts.

    There was one particular poster here who kept on trying to implicate one politician in a ring of child abuse and murder and you kinda just had to scratch your head and wonder were they in the real world at all.

    There is a thread about Ahern himself and his domestic life that the mods remarkably stand over, as they pull threads about Court cases that are in the public domain. I'd say if Ahern had the stomach for a fight, it would be a lot better than any previous trawl on some other matter.

    I thought I read somewhere that they've changed it back ? Could be wrong....

    Anyone supporting Bray Wanderers should be exposed.

    These are dangerous people.

    FFS. I hope whatever was said was something seriously defamatory, and not just someone criticising the state of the toilets in the Carlisle.

    Good win last Friday, and when Cork arrive next Tuesday, I'll be sure to mention this to Devo at some point in the evening!
