On his own admission, Somerset suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. He displays the classic symptoms
  • fascination with certain topics (such a pity that his is the weather in Accrington)
  • difficulty with interpreting both verbal and non-verbal language (so he fails to understand humour, irony and sarcasm)
  • lack of common sense
  • tendency to engage in one-sided conversations (about oneself)

It is not an illness so cannot be cured.

Sadly, all our jibes and sarky comments will not make him stop. He does not understand them. I gave him the dates of the Yeovil games that had been postponed because of the weather - that had no effect. I know he is a total irritant - the only way to stop him is to remove his posts and/or ban him.

Re: Weather

He is totally wacky and unique. Either very sad or the smartest WUM ever. I like browsing the forums and haven't seen him pop up anywhere else other than on here. Why he should rock up on the Accy forum is beyond me. Having games called off is totally frustrating for footy fans, but not really being an Accy fan I can look at this with a detached view.He gets a rise from you every time so that's probably what keeps him going. Not easy but maybe just ignore him and he might get fed up. There again this is not a normal person we are talking about so I wouldn't be so sure. Maybe just treasure him. After all you're the only forum in the whole world with you're very own SOMERSET!

EDIT. Apologies, ignore the above, just noticed that someone mentioned earlier that he has Aspergers syndrome. That explains it all. Not a very pleasant mental condition to suffer from so yes maybe best to either just ban him or play along with it now knowing the reason for it.

i,d go with that. was funny at first but the joke has gone more than stale now. not as if he is or way a stanley fan either. needs to concentrate on matters nearer home like the form of yeovil town .

Don't worry about the distance. We can arrange an early pitch inspection before you set off. Just in case.

What's all this talk about banning Somerset? He's not a troll or a wind-up merchant, and I doubt he'd even understand the concept of those terms. He's a harmless individual who, due to his condition, has an unusual way of communicating with people. Like AccyMad and Kiwi, I find he brightens up the tedium of a cancelled fixture day. However, for those who he irritates, the answer's simple - he never interrupts on other members' threads, he just starts his own whenever there's a cancelled fixture. So just don't open his threads, then everybody's happy!

Spot on Mr. H

Is there any chance that - in your position - you could stop people closing threads for no apparent reason??

Joe;

it's me that's closed the thread as I thought he was "not welcome".

If the guys not well, that's sad.

I can confirm he has also written to the club demanding we install undersoil heating!!

New pitch, 250k + add in undersoil heating, cira 150k and we won't hear from Joe W ( Somerset) again

Re: Weather

"Not welcome"? Who says he's not welcome? As far as I and quite a few others are concerned, he's got a right to post on here if he wants to. As I said before, he only posts on the threads he starts,so it's quite easy for our more irritable members to avoid him, if they wish!
