Vital Swindon Town has decided to close the fans forum due to racist and libelous comments on other sites.

Due to racist/libelous comments on other Swindon Town message boards at the moment, we have decided to close the forums down to reduce the possibility of any racist/libelous being posted on our site.

We do actively encourage fans to post comments on our stories however again these must not be racist or libelous. We do not condone any such actions.

This site does not discuss politics and this includes the current board or the proposed fans consortium.

Vital Swindon Town is a news site about what is happening on the pitch and not a site that looks to take sides in a political battle.

We regret we have to take such action, however we are serious about Kicking Racism Out Of Football and feel it is unfair to neutral fans to be subjected to such content.
