Of course condoms are O.K. to talk about, here or anywhere else, but they are a bit limited as a musical instrument, all I ever seem to get out of them is one loud percussive bang!
As we all know this thread was not started for the purpose of dicussing condoms but to make a point, it was made and with some humour but can we move on now?
Jenny said some good things and surely we all want eveyone here to feel that they can un-lurk and contribute. If they don't then I suggest that they are in the wrong place. We have to work hard towards a situation where people can feel free to do that, without all that tiresome stuff about if the subject is offline or discussed two years ago or anything else.
Reply to the thread, don't question the poster right to say it. To my mind The Mudcat is an inclusive 'club', without any stated rules that I am aware of and that is why I like it, if it ever becomes a place for the self-chosen few, I for one will not be there.
If you don't like the subject don't contribute, it is as easy as that. The posts about where, why and what we do, were and continue to be well supported (but from now on a little bit more inhibited) and that says it all.
