As Lou says, part of it is about widening decision making.   You should also think of your Soviet councillors as your representatives.   Don't want to raise an issue with me or @saintbletch?   With eight people on the overall council (owners + Soviet), there's a good chance that you might find someone else that'd raise your case with more passion or conviction than we might.

PS. I do innuendo, but 'blatant horny chat' is far too crude for a princess like me lou_wink2lou_sunnies

 So can you give us  bit of your "blatant horny chat" so we could make an informed decision on whether it is actullay horny? 

 I wouldn't even know how, Phil! lou_surprised

 I've sent you some pointers via pm. Basically stuf that @Bearsy said to me when I joined. HTH

 Bearsy's a bugger - don't pay any attention to what he says! And that photo isn't me, I swear!!

 Correct.  Your moustache is much bushier, and Jeff the Trucker would never be seen in a Transit, naked or otherwise.

Right, I'm going to be closing this thread shortly and starting a new one with a poll attached.   I think CB Saint has said he's too busy being a boss elsewhere to be accepted for consideration, which I can deal with.   I have more problems with @BTripz self-excluding, so I reckon he might reconsider.   Heartbeat of the site, dude.

You can, and I'm sure I know which thread you're talking about.   However, as I'm sure that you probably believe the same things I do, that compare to other places we're a bit of a modern marvel with it comes to integration, a small part of you sees it as a massive monument to another poster's miscalculation.   Should it not stay on that basis?

The Man closes another thread. It's like 1984 or Big Brother or Brave New World or the Murdoch empire or the Tory Government or the Empire or something.

 I just see it as something that is stuck in a loop, that ran it's course ages ago and now serves little purpose. 

Time to cut your (collective) losses and move on, imo. 

Also, since when did we agree on shit?

 Yeah I know what you mean @KRG and I completely agree with your sentiments BUT there's obviously 2 or 3 people ( about 10% of our regulars) who seem to embrace it and it's not getting OTT abusive or anything. so should the thread really be closed because it only appeals to a minority ?

 Yes.

 

This message was paid for by the KRG for Sotonians Soviet Committee. Vote KRG for dull, monotous threads to be STFU'd.

 It,(the other thread) sometimes makes me laugh, a lot. so for that reason and that reason only, we should keep it open...

I just see it continually at the top of the latest page and groan inwardly and avoid it. Then the temptation is too much and I binge feast on it.

Sometimes I even reply to someone!!

There's a whole freedom of speech thing too.  

The thread has thrived because others have put stuff into it.   Without that, it would just be @Barry Sanchez carping on his own.

Yes, it's tedious.  No, Barry's not getting it.    I don't think it reflects badly on the site other than to say we're easy trollbait.

Threads usually die of their own volition due to a lack of interest and/or participation.   That hasn't happened with Bazza's thread, so who am I to argue?

So what happened to closing this thread and the Poll then @pap ?
