    If we thumb down then the thread doesn't get promoted to the top 😉


    Obvious I know, but It would be nice to see one or two of some of the more insidious threads get dropped of the page in a blaze of thumbs downs, rather than them getting propped up by "negative" comments.

    Censorship is the nector of tyrants.

    Such wasted talent....

    We rarely hear from her- despite her being the mum of my 6 1/2 yr old boy. We used to see her every weekend for 4 years and then "poof". My so called best mate got with her and she chose him over me.

    Mind you he is not able to look after a 6 yr old child for 10 mins so... lets just leave that there.
    Me and boy are happy and she is welcome to bring her beautiful music and her intoxicating voice and play for me anytime 🙂
    Actually I've just met my german neighbour who have guitar lessons and seems quite a reasonable, happy chap. Maybe we can get something happening?

    That girl (Jo Diefenbach) has enough songs for about 4 or 5 albums, without even really trying. like I said, such a waste. (It's not like this new guy is going to give her the confidence she needs, because if she got it together, I would certainly have some connections for her )

    Where do you draw the line between censorship and spam?


    Tough question, I know, but seriously, you would have to get a non-biased mod-overlord who has absolutely no political or religious persuasions,no?

    Is this supposed to be a slippery slope argument against some forum participants doing boycotts, or is it just a caution? As a caution it is certainly wise, after all, there are religions represented on this forum that have espoused and used shunning, disfellowship, and/or excommunication as a means of control.

    If people felt any communal pressure to join a boycott, then there would be a degree of censorship, especially if they feared they might find themselves ignored or excluded as a retaliation for not joining the boycott.
