To be fair RAWK is full of awful gobshites
there's a fan forum that isn't?.
Grand Old Team, an Everton fan forum, is a tightly-run anti-dickhead website (you can't even say fuck, never mind cunt) which bans gobshites freely whilst trying to maintain good humour. It's won a few awards and is head and shoulders above the hate-filled, deluded pages of RAWK. That said, I think at least one of its mods isn't fit for purpose.
A tightly-run vetted and moderated site would be the only way to go with these things I think. You can't even read the threads there without signing up so can't check it out (I doubt they allow opposition fans but I could be wrong) but other Everton sites I perused are no different from the norm (but with added bitterness, obviously). Open sites attract all kinds of knuckle-dragging morons, arrogant twats and delusional dick heads. Just look at BCB!
I find the most the most hate-filled forum is actually Shed End. They seem to hate Livepool in particular to a passionate level* which is strange given that have plenty of London neighbours you'd think they'd hate more. Sadly Man City's fans at Blue Moon seem to have taken over from Red Cafe's lot as the most arrogant. A pity as I generally like City fans (some are my best friends) not that you can judge the average fan based on these sites though.*Their thread on the 2005 Champions League final is an absolute classic and used to be frequently linked to on RAWK for comic relief - the frothing-at-the-mouth level of anger during the second half is hilarious. Even on Red Cafe there was a begrudging "well done 'pool", "fair play" etc. nothing of the sort of Shed End at all.
