Finally took the plunge and joined the chain of users also doing this. I haven't blocked anyone on here before and the sense of freedom is bringing relieved tears to my eyes.

I think Diego means well.

 

They are not aggressive or argumentative and has shown a willingness to be advised about what people want from their posts. They have stopped liking almost every post.

 

I am on a Live & Let Live approach.

I aspire to have your level of patience sir!

 

I simply cannot read another one of his posts. I know they are meant to be in English but they're formatted so poorly I feel like I'm having some sort of seizure whenever I read them. May as well not be in English at all. He's still liking my old posts.

I'm going to stick up for Diego here. In his posts, he actually gives context to the death (from Wiki recent deaths) and a photo .

Then compare that to The Old Crems posts above. Also copied from Wiki recent deaths but with no information about the player other than a link.

It has also spread according to his GoFundMe.

Retires from football.  Sounds like he is becoming a coach.
