Thread Name: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics
Can't agree with that, pfr. The two or three I'm thinking of dragged the place down with their bad secret agendas, the sort of thing I've seen, when not controlled, on other websites that brought them into disrepute and nurtured a culture of trolling, flaming and sweary insults that just couldn't be recovered from. We can all agree or disagree about certain individuals (and, bejaysus, I've walked the tightrope meself on several occasions), but the bottom line is that this is someone else's site, someone who sweated his arse off to set it up with his own vision, him, not us, and we have no right to dictate terms here. We can squabble and argue and protest, and it's grand of the founder of this site to allow that. This is not a democracy. It's someone's vision, and we can sign up for free and bugger off for free, not having to make the commitment that the founder had to make. It costs us nowt. So celebrate the fact that you can freely put up your point of view and still have a bloody good grumble at Jeri, Maggie and Joe. They love us really...
