Subject: RE: BS: INTERNATIONAL BRIGADES Urge MP support
"It's called democracy. If you don't like it, start a civil war thread. I'm sure you'll have plenty of takers. This thread is a gentle suggestion from a man of great integrity that you might wish to consider lobbying your MP."
"Posting about food is deliberate and intentional thread drift, designed to irritate but not to goad into emotional responses, therefore it is not trolling. I would estimate that all bar about four people who read these benighted threads welcome it as a leavening of the bread (now there's an idea - I might come back to that). Clearly, your understanding of trolling is about as hazy as your understanding of antisemitism."
Taken the hipocritic oath have we?
The volunteers raised controversy at the time. Those same questions remain today. Some regarded them as heroes, some as fools,others as misguided. Obviously trying to drum up support for the motion will raise counter arguments. I believe this is called democracy.
