Once more a relevant topic of conversation degenerates into a mud slinging fracas. As my old form master to used to say when dealing with squabbling 3rd formers "I have no wish to know who started it only to inform you that I am the one to end it".
By all means criticise the opinion but name calling is neither nice for the recipient nor those who wish to make a valid point.

Tried to attach a "thumbs up" symbol but buggered if I know how to do it so have to make do with this................ cool.gif

Thank you. I don't know either which is why we use words instead of symbols. Didn't the Egyptians use a similar form of communications before the development of the alphabet?
Maybe we are actually going backwards without knowing it?

It's probably just coincidence, but these little notes of yours seem only to appear when certain posters here have been dished back what they can't stop
doing themselves.

Unfortunately there's no end to it. As soon as some horrendous views on here are challenged, the insults start. It's possible to be robust without resorting to name calling. I admit in the last week lowering myself to it when accusing one particularly unpleasant member of being a drunk. In my defence, the posts from the person concerned often contain clear evidence of not reading properly what's written and incoherent name calling.

Reasonable force is permitted, if they enter and you are in fear of your life or the lives of others you may use all reasonable force. What you may not do is attack someone trying to get out of the property nor can you harm someone who is fleeing the scene.


It's always best to ensure that he Police only have your statement to take. No danger of confusion then... tongue.gif

State these 'horrendous' views. And lets not pretend you're innocent of being abusive either.
