General Discussion

OK @Strong and Stable , I've closed your account. @elvis presley , most of the time it is worth it. things usually go pear shaped around voting time or when the discussion is about politics.

@Lynne , no it doesn't make you a busy body, and disseminating that kind of information is what this site is for. I will also need to make it clear in the terms that the terms and conditions are subject to change and old posts are not necessarily a guide to what is allowed and what is not. Also that, as with all rules and laws (think parking and speeding), just because someone may ...

@Lynne , yes, I would argue that that would be a personal insult and it could lead to an excalating argument. But i'm willing to ask members what they think as @Strong and Stable suggests. My view at the moment is I don't see any need for any name calling. I will put it in the terms and conditions once it is agreed on. In the meantime if someone genuinely unintentionally gets it ...

@Strong and Stable , I don’t think we have much of an issue with privacy and copyright infringement. These things are more clear-cut although there have been minor privacy breaches.

There are several people breaking the terms on this site and this has to stop. @Andrew’s account has been closed for blatantly violating the terms and refusing to stick to them. @Scapegoat, you normally stick to the terms but have a habit of straying. Calling @Paul an ultra right wing idiot and @Huw Mathews a right wing * with bigoted views is unacceptable. Adding lol on the end doesn’t make ...

@Andrew , you can choose not to talk to huw if you want to, but huw has every right to comment on anything you post as does anyone else.

@Andrew , i think you'll find huw's username has a 2 on the end because he lost or forgot his credentials to his original account - It was most likely back when usernames had to be unique. Re: "I think it'd be better if we just ignore each other on this site and don't comment on either's posts." This is not how it works on the general ...

@north devonian , you have to set the hyperlink yourself using the link button. When you paste hypertext from another source, it sometimes detects it but not always.
