Thread Name: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
Subject: RE: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
I haven't met anyone who posts here to my knowledge (I had a natter once with Brian Peters but he won't remember). I rarely communicate by private message except to respond to someone who's contacted me first. I'm not in anyone's team and if someone I generally agree with goes off on one I usually just shut up and cringe. But I'd be ashamed of myself if I saw bigotry and ignorant prejudice left unremarked on any forum I was posting on. I didn't permit it in my classroom in 25 years and I'm damned if I'm going to see racism, prejudice against gay people, gay marriage and Muslims, fuelled by hatred and ignorance, pass on this board without comment. As for complaining about multiple identities, well I don't know your identity either, and I don't see you whingeing about the multitude of nameless Guests who post there, often in numbers that make discussion nonsensical. Be honest with yourself for once. You have it in for a particular individual who is very good at ruffling your feathers. And you deserve it, too.
