OK PJ so are you saying that every time ANY of us post a topic or make any comment we ALL have to substantiate our words with source links to validate what we are saying?
I've posted many 1000's of topics and comments over the years as have you and others and yes sometimes we have all posted links but mostly we haven't. I suppose we could though if we could be bothered but then what would it achieve other than giving other websites an extra 'google' type tick in the box for the posted back links?
We all interpret what is reported in national and local news differently sometimes that's because of the way things are reported though as some are intentionally worded to cause unrest and debate and we all have our own views too. Just because you think you are right about something or I think I'm right about something..or any other person thinks they are right about somethings...DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE ALL RIGHT...OR INDEED ALL WRONG. But what matters is that things SHOULD be able to be discussed/debated in a grown up way.
Twice now you have also mentioned 'better run forums' too...well if you don't like this one and think it's so badly run WHY DO YOU KEEP COMING ON IT and not stick to the 'better run ones?'
Obviously I'm not trying to get rid of you but if you hate it so much why stick around and call it all the time?
I feel very sorry for Gary who, as we all know, pays to keep this forum running with money from his own pocket every month just so us 'long timers' can all whinge on it. Maybe you will get your way one day and he will close it down......
As for you wanting me to retract the claim that you accused me of racism......non retractable I'm afraid as I explained myself more than once about how I felt....I agree that you didn't actually say directly that I was being racist but your comments and you way you kept on and on made it seem like AND MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS being racist...when I wasn't.
I swore blind I wasn't going to reply on here again.....damn...OVER AND OUT !!
