    What changes would you suggest - to the TOS, guidelines, and anything else you can think of - to make this web site a bit more British in character, and less international?

    Posters should have pipes in their mouth while posting.

    How about having no guns, real borders and a free health care system?

    Too much?

    Feel free to simply not enter into the spirit of things, Grampy Bobby, if you so choose , or indeed, feel free to have no idea of what the spirit of things actually is (as so often seems to be the case). And I say this in a spirit of British embrace of diversity. 😛

    No, not too much. But we'd need it to be worded carefully for the TOS so that people could get posts deleted and forum banned for not complying.

    Perhaps in the period running up to the launch of the web site's Go More British initiative, there could be a Dentistry Forum added with invites sent out to regulars at the Science Forum and the Culture Forum, and then this new Dentistry Forum could be discontinued as soon as the enhanced Britishness regime gets started. It would send out an unmistakable stereotype message to the world.

    I'm Canadian but I do have a spot of tea in the afternoon. Would that make me an honorary English member?
    What do say old chap?

    No, affirmation and celebration of multifariousness in the face of homogenizing globalism ...setting in again. Unbritish posters would be welcome as long as they comply with the BriTOS guidelines.

    Not a Britishness-defining characteristic, I reckon. 😉
