The way I used the phrase "old timers" was to denote people who have been on these forums forever, i.e "an experienced or long serving person." This is a perfectly legit definition of the phrase. It can also be used to indicate an old person. At any rate, I apologise if you found this to be insulting or derogatory, although I would prefer it if you approached me directly rather than engaging in back door, indirect, inflammatory jibes.
The facts don't lie. The majority of regulars on here are :

e. Carlton supporters
This forum was set up for Carlton fans, so I have no issue with point e. It is perfectly reasonable and to be expected. Some people may have no issue with points a to d, but I do. I think the site experience would be better with greater diversity.

I know of one who was told to move on and she believed it wasn’t just her that received that treatment.
