How come anyone who disagrees with someone else on this site is then labelled 'a troll'? It's happened to me twice. It's like a school playground sometimes.

ROFL! I want my councils to save money! Or at least not waste it on trivial matters such as whether or not there is a bar at the end of double yellow lines!
