Thread Name: BS: Are fewer people posting?
Subject: RE: BS: Are fewer people posting?
Not all the religious topics here have been responded to with a lack of respect. I asked for advice and reaction to a religious matter not too long ago, and many people responded with a lot of wisdom and insight. There wasn't one single nasty post, and I found the advice helpful and supportive. I don't myself get too upset by vicious attack; it's only words on a screen and one has the option of looking at something else, the Net is endless. And I uphold the rights of even the most ghastly Troll to have his/her say. I do draw the line at obscenity and dreadful swear words (so unnecessary) but there's very little of that here. Censorship should IMO only be used in dire circumstances. I've been quite under the weather for a few weeks, and I wonder if others have been too, and not felt up to posting? It's been a wickedly bad winter, and folk are at their last gasp round here in Norfolk. Maybe that might explain a falling-off of contributors? (Temporary I hope!)
