Can't it be made a closed section where only the ones who want access can see it?


Simple asnwer is just don't go in there if you don't want to read the posts, not rocket science really.



Ive got to moderate it :sad:

About time you did then! just because certain words are in the dictionary does not mean it is acceptable to use them anymore. Certain words are only used to provoke a reaction, well in my book there is only one acceptable reaction (action).

Then the simple thing to do is to either block the chap whereby you wont see his posts or simply don't bite.

You condone the use of this language then. That may be the simple thing to do but is not the correct thing to do. Standards are falling.
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

Correct thing to do in who's eyes, Yours or the Governments..neither of which is very agreeable to in any case.

The right to free speech and expression should be paramount even if it does ruffle a few feathers amongst the Pious few.

Food banks in the 21st century, wage stagnation for the many and tax cuts for the priveliged few. These things are obscene. Tory press stirring up division and hate for short term political gain. That is obscene.
A rude word which may or may not be accurate, that is just unpleasant. Get some perspective.

BTW All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to vote Tory.

I like the Scottish section, it's raw and nobody seems to care what they write about each other. Simple thing is if you don't like it don't read it, with the exception of the moderators of course but that' the joy of having responsibility :lol: :lol:

NO. NO. NO! That is not the answer. People who are going to use racist language must be challenged. Ignoring it is not and should not be an option. Should we ignore child abuse? should we ignore rape? NO. NO. NO!

I don't see it as racist - I see it as offensive, in poor taste, as pretty sh*tty, as stupid, as misleading, but I am not offended by it - but by all means - report it and maybe another moderator will take action.
