Re: Newspapers read

Locking or deleting threads may well satisfy the need to feel in control but it denies the right to reply and allows indefensible comments to go unchallenged.

In my view one of the reasons this country is in such a mess is that we don't discuss politics enough. Censoring political discussion on public fora does nothing to help.

I think it is also telling that administrators are able to make inflammatory comments after threads have been locked, safe in the knowledge that no reply is possible.

I think it's disappointing that posters whose 'nose have been put out of joint' feel the need to make complaints to the mods.. For myself, if I feel I can't 'take it on the chin' anymore, I'd simply ignore the thread - but it's never arisen. Perhaps my working class background has equipped me with a tougher skin!

I'm not a Socialist Worker reader, but have occasionally dipped into it - like in the link about.

I quite like their direct, robust style with no pussy-footing around - unlike much of our effete newspapers.

So is it a 'cunning plan' by the mods., saying that there have been complaints, in order to have an excuse* to close the thread? I think we should be told!

*Yeah, OK - I know the mods don't need an excuse, but it would look better if they had one.

Before I sign out, opportunity permitting, can a mod please affirm I made no complaints about the club or any of the members. Yesterday was banter, had it been a different time after 9pm, I would have told certain members to off themselves to blouse land. Ha! Have fun

A few years working in shipyards has equipped me well. Snowflakes need not apply!

The oddest places I have worked for politics have been laboratories. There are all manner of academics in there with seriously skewed ideas of the world, but who never see the light of day!

My definition of a laboratory is; a safe haven where academics are protected from the realities of the outside world. Also see 'University'.

A group of Socialist Workers used to meet every Saturday morning under the Tunsgate in Guildford High Street when I was a lad. But you had to get there before 11.00 am because that was pub opening time in those days.

I must be too old for this kind of thing, how ironic.
