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

It won’t matter now; him and Biker1 have eloped! Looking for something a little more highbrow and sympathetic to their views it seems.

Highbrow, yes. Sympathetic to my views, no.
All up for reasoned, adult debate.

It seems all rather narcissistic to make such ‘dramatic’ announcements I think, especially as both of you have contributed to the problems you both perceive.

So I am wrong then?
In my case give me an example and I will concede to your accusations.
Perhaps your right on one point however, Simon et al departed with no drama.
If I have caused issue by announcing such then I apologise.

I disagree with the o/p.
A lot has changed around here in the last few months.
We now have a small series of childish, name calling brawls between the few remaining posters.
The forum has now descended to petty, name calling non-arguments of the Monty Python / Facebook ilk with no intervention from the so called moderation team.
It would appear that the NWN has lost interest. Does it even remember that this forum exists??
It is not surprising that many serious debaters of the past have left. I don't blame them.
Personally, I have had enough so I will join them.
Until this forum reverts back to a serious intelligent debating platform I will stay that way.
Very sad!! sad.gif

Still angry? Have you thought to try cannabis?

This could explain a great deal.............?
From NHS website.............
"Cannabis use 'shrinks and rewires' the brain,"
These headlines are based on a study that compared the brain structure and connections of cannabis users with those of non-users.
The researchers identified several differences between the brains of cannabis users and non-users.

These differences were in a region of the brain called the orbitofrontal cortex. This is part of the reward network of the brain, and is enriched with cannabinoid 1 receptors that bind THC (the "active" ingredient in cannabis).

The researchers found the orbitofrontal cortex was smaller in cannabis users, but there was more connectivity.

So angry. Why?

It's OK to be angry occasionally. It's the natural way.
If nothing makes you angry then you live in a false world.

Depends how you define it. If I lived in Pakistan I’d consider the Americans to be the terrorists.

What, the Americans plant devices designed to kill and maim hundreds of innocent civilians?
Or fly civilian planes into public buildings? ohmy.gif

We haven't had one of those for a very long time and sadly doesn't seem to be much prospect of one.

There aren’t many Muslims for you to hate here though.

Thar's a strange response to my comment!
Who mentioned muslims?
Seems like you have a fixation there?

But....... seeing as you raised it, have you been down Pound Street on Friday lunchtime?
(Just contradicting the "aren't many" bit. The "hate" bit you have made up yourself!)

And if it scuppers Brexit, yes I’d be happy because All Independant forecasts predict a decline. Even the PM believes it is bad for the country. The whole thing is absurd.

Then why did they ask us numbskulls in the first place?

How come we had ludicrously high council tax increases when the Lib Dems were last in charge of WBC? Don't recall it being the Tories in Government slashing funding to councils then. Do remember our increases being either the highest or second highest in the country.

Agreed, yes I remember those double figure increases very well! angry.gif

QUOTE (GrumblingAgain @ Mar 19 2018, 10:20 AM) *
Thank goodness we don't have a Lib Dem run council then - it would be far more than a 6% rise then. More like 36%.

It would indeed! Still doesn't justify it though I think?

That seems a massive failure of security services and lucky not to have been far worse.

Hopefully when JC becomes PM our desire for supporting the US in their “war on terror” will diminish and we will be less of a target as a result.

Not a nasty man intent on maiming and killing innocent people then, but "a massive failure of security services"?
We and other western countries will be a target until we become a caliphate.

Indeed, I for one will be having many more bonfires, sod the neighbors. It's going to be a point of honour, I pay council tax for Christ sake, they wanted us to recycle, recycle more and more. Stuck a thing on the green bin that said ' feed me ' now the buggers want to charge me more on top of the outrageous increase in tax. What I can't burn will go in sacks into the black bin.

Likewise.
Refusing to pay it is a matter of principle.
They claim it will raise £900,000.
That would assume that 18,000 households are going to pay it?
Surely there aren't that many mugs in the District?? unsure.gif
