Birmingham Mail autocorrect
« on: May 04, 2017, 10:32:58 AM »
It seems that any link to the Mail puts a load of asterisks in which makes it unclickable.  I understand the reason for doing so because it's a shit rag, but occasionally they carry an interesting story.  Any chance of turning it off, and leaving it to individuals to make the choice as to whether they want to click on it or not?

I agree, too.
How about a poll?  ;)

I dont live in Brum anymore so I don't see the Birmingham Mail much.  I know it gets a lot of stick on here.

Check out this story from a couple of days ago:

Basically, the headline is Blues fans are so loyal as they are the 8th best supported away club in the Championship. 

In the article there is a table with all the numbers.  Guess who's top with double the amount Blues take away?

And, depressingly our away record is worse than theirs (we are 20th on away games alone which is shocking)

Nah, don't put any links to it. The amount of crap pop-ups and the like that go along with it are infuriating. Plus they're crap.
