Conor Shinkins - Feedback from Site Visitors
we get a lot of email correspondence from people all over Ireland and
much further afield. Thankfully most of these emails are messages of thanks
or congratulations from genuine football people that appreciate our efforts.
We're not entirely sure that an email message that we received
recently from site visitor, Conor Shinkins, fits into that category though.
We cover our costs through
some minor sponsorship and modest advertising revenues. Constrained by
this resource level we do make some mistakes. A small number of the emails
that we get are from people that kindly take the time to point out any
errors that they have come across when perusing the website. And to those
people we say a heartfelt 'thank you'. It really helps and we genuinely
appreciate it when such well-intended people make the effort to contact
Helpful Comment from Conor Shinkins
In that context we'd like
to highlight a very thoughtful email that we recently received
from Conor Shinkins. Clearly Conor is a big fan of this website and what
we do here at Soccer-Ireland.com.
Conor Shinkins First Message:
This is in response to a piece
of shit you wrote about Eamon Dunphy's biography, you wrote that
in ''those days education wasn't fr''
[sic], well actually yes Primary
School education had been free in Ireland since the 1920's!!!! It
was only Secondary schooling thatw asn't [sic]
up to the 1960's!!!! Get your fucking facts straight, and stop making
comments about things u know nothing about you thick moaning useless
Our Reply to Mr Shinkins:
Thank you for your thoughtful and well-articulated
contribution. I am always looking for enlightened feedback.
I think if you care to check again you will
find that I did not make the statement that you (mis-)quoted.
If, as you somewhat intemperate language suggests,
that you do not like what I write may I recommend that you refrain
from visiting my site.

Second Message from Conor Shinkins:
I didn't read ur response,
I just deleted it like the garbage it is. But I do take pleasure
in knowing u read my e-mail :-D :-D
Our Final Response to Conor:
I read all kinds of crap.
And of COURSE you read my reply :)
Third Message from Conor Shinkins:
U can respond all day, not
going to read it
As we have said we always
welcome feedback from people that have a genuine interest in football.
Even from those that do not agree with our views or opinions. As you can
imagine we receive a lot of correspondence on our Saipan
Incident thesis and clearly some of it is not in agreement with our
conclusions. Nevertheless the vast majority has been polite even by those
adopting an opposing view. We are happy to use this website as a platform
to put forward opposing views just so long as the views are coherent and
non-inflammatory language is being used. We're not really gone on foul
mouthed mindless tirades, such as that from Conor Shinkins, particularly
when they have no basis in truth or facts.
