S4C, the Welsh language chanell calls Us man u

I sent them an email asking if they could refarain from using that term, this is what they had to say;

Beth yw'r ots? Dim on enw yw e!

What's the difference? It's only a name!

to my surprise, just finished Bestie's autobiography about a week ago and I believed it was the epilogue where he refers to us as Man U

I was utterly dumbfounded when I heard 'that term' used in 2 adverts on United's own radio station a few weeks ago. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Here we are trying to educate people on the matter and there are adverts undoing our hard work!

Hiya Nany :D Welcome, glad to have you here.

Our word filter has corrupted that article but we are redoing it without the auto word replacements and giving credit to the orignal authors. Should have it finished by Monday.

How have you been for the past week - find a nice new home?

Anyway, I hope you will feel at hom here.

Hi Condor. Already feeling at home thanks. I've been on Abdullah's board this last week but not been in much as I've had a busy week with hardly a moment to spare. As I've said elsewhere, this is looking great. My name's Joanne, btw.

Sir Clive Sinclair apart from inventing the calculator and the first home computer with a massive 125k of RAM also invented a battery powered car thing called the Sinclair C5, well it was about as popular as an eggy fart in a lift.

I thought it was filtered by looking at the posts from earlier it seems to be unfiltered, why?

I think because it ruins the article and it doesnt make sense. When it was filtered it used Man Utd + A sentence in brackets and it was hard to follow and posters may be lost or lose the concept of the thread and its main point

Just about every tabloid newspaper in the UK referred to Jonny Evans as a MAN U player in banner headlines today.

I'm thinking of writing this info to the local press as tribute to those who lost their lives 50 years ago because I can't stand them always calling us by that name. Any copyright laws I should know about?

It's a name a lot of news papers, sports chnnels even a lot of people use to refer to us. It does get me annoyed in a way but most of these papers don't really know the history behind it or just don't care. I don't think it's possible to stop everyone especially in the media from calling us that not matter how many news agencies we can write to. The most important is to educate United fans about the name because there still a lot of us who still are ignorant of the significance of this term. I've heard it even being used even by some ex player which is sad really. I think the best thing would be Manchester United issuing a statement condeming the use ot the term.
