Re: yawn...


<if
everyone would simply use their filters the idiots
would get no
response and, like over-acting children, eventually
tire and go away.>
Absolutely - we're all grown ups. I blocked the worst
ages ago & have lost nil sleep over it - I can't help
wishing that people wouldn't *rise* to them and I do
think that before folk decide to hone their wit on the
trolls they should consider the consequences for
everyone else.
Nevertheless on grounds of free speech I'm against a
centralised 'we suggest you block list..', except for
nazis.
There is, however, a deeply prurient part of me
that would love to see the MTAA 'worst of' list.

Re: Fwd: Membership Contributions

a pretty damn
good deal to me.>

constructive thinking.

Re: Buy Nothing Day


Hi Ivan
I think you're being a tad curmudgeonly here.
It hardly takes a massive intellectual effort to
relate to US cultural events/traditions,
certainly less than to read Levi, or Dickens or
Shakespeare and it strikes me as philistinism to boast
of one's ignorance of any field ( even national
holidays, traditions or currency - don't you read
American literature? - it's more interesting and far
less smug and parochial than anything being produced
on our side of the Atlantic)
I worry about this UK/USA, us & them tone that
occasionally creeps into posts (I mean in general -
I'm not singling you out for some sort of attack),
after all the point of the original post was broadly
speaking a progressive one.
