Just another thing to get pointlessly pissed off about.

I guess this just another thing for me to be pointlessly pissed off about. I can’t understand how people can become this incredibly stupid, but they have.

Unless this show has been seen in the USA on PBS or cable, most Americans won’t know what this is all about. So here’s a link should you be interested.  http://www.dadsarmy.co.uk/

It was a hugely popular and I am told, a very funny show that ran for a long time. It wasn’t my cup of tea and I didn’t get anything from it but then I’m not a Brit.

Anyway, so popular is this show still, after years off the air, there are web sites dedicated to it. (see above) There was even a board game which eBay UK in it’s unfathomable ignorance and dedication to political correctness has seen fit to ban due to Swastikas on the box. No, it isn’t some right wing racist game dreamed up by the BNP or the KKK or some nut case looking to offend ppl.  Read the article.  Jeesh ….

eBAY, YOU ARE BEYOND BEING MERELY STUPID IDIOTS.  YOU HAVE BECOME WORLD CLASS STUPID “FUCKIN” IDIOTS!  You haven’t the brains god gave a rock. You truly are as the man says, MORONIC! 

eBay bans sale of Dad’s Army board game for promoting ‘hatred and racial intolerance’

When Dave Davidson was clearing out some old junk, he thought nothing of selling a 99p Dad’s Army board game online.

But he was amazed when the auction site eBay refused to let him sell it because it might incite racial hatred and promote violence.
The offending part was a Swastika on the box, modelled on the opening titles of the sitcom which showed Swastikas and Union flags strategically moving around a map of Europe.

And despite its apparent family-friendly content, where players attempt to get their platoon to one location on the board, eBay stuck by their decision to ban the auction declaring: “We don’t allow the sale of memorabilia associated with the Nazi Party.”

(Yeah right but I’ll bet ya eBay sells old uncle joe photos and the Hammer and Sickle don’t ya. There’s also a Hammer & Sickle Vodka I am told. Amazing isn’t it, that this ass-wipe, this condom stuffer, can not see that the board game is NOT memorabilia and is NOT associated with any political group. And yet, and yet.  Ppl like this get decision making jobs with large companies and get to decide for everybody else, what is correct and proper to buy and or sell.  )

Mr Davidson said: “I couldn’t believe it when they sent me an email telling me my Dad’s Army board game could insight violence and hatred.

“Its so annoying because any human being with an ounce of common sense can see Dad’s Army is the most harmless TV programme in the world.
“There’s no swearing, sex or violence – it’s not like I’m trying to flog a piece of Nazi memorabilia here.
“I was just baffled.”

He said Ebay was “run by a system, by robots, with no brain who probably just vet the content without looking into anything properly”, adding: ”It’s moronic.

“They allow coins and stamps with swastikas and there are hundreds of novels which are war stories that have them.”
Mr Davidson, from Droitwich, Worcs, discovered his item had been removed from the site last Saturday when he received an e-mail from eBay.

It said his listing breached the company’s offensive material policy and added: “We don’t allow sellers on eBay to list items that promote violence, hatred, racial or religious intolerance, or items from organisations that promote these views.
“We don’t allow items or memorabilia associated with the Nazi Party.”

The ‘Dad’s Army Board Game’ was released in the mid-1970’s when the TV series was at the height of its popularity.
Jenny Thomas, spokesman for eBay UK, said: “eBay will remove listings that bear the marks of organisations that promote hatred and racial intolerance and we are strict and unapologetic in adhering to this policy.”

Peter Oteng, chief executive of the Worcestershire Racial Equality Council, said that there are strict laws about advertising discriminatory material and eBay, as the advertiser, was protecting itself.

He said: “You can’t joke with this because you are joking with millions of people killed. It’s not a laughing matter at all.  It’s very serious.”
He added a compromise could have been to advertise the board game without showing the swastika image.

“You can’t joke with this because you are joking with millions of people killed. It’s not a laughing matter at all.  It’s very serious.”

No you bleeding idiot. It is a laughing matter.  It’s a board game based on a TV show you jerk.  No again you ignorant schmuck. It isn’t serious. It’s a board game based on a comedy TV show. Dad’s Army is a British sitcom about the Home Guard in the Second World War. ‘Dad’s Army’ ran for nine years from 1968 until 1977. It spawned a full length feature film, a radio series and a musical stage show.

I think eBay should reconsider their position on this particular subject and sack the ppl involved. Not because of what they did. No. Because they are just too stupid to work for a major company and make decisions affecting other people. They do not have what it takes.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
