I think it's best if we don't allow ourselves to get too serious. An exchange of views and maybe a bit of good-humoured banter is all we should expect. I'm not sure this sort of informal group of chatterboxes could ever change anything (but I'd love to be proved wrong!)

Well Said PP.  Ive been half avoiding the forum myself for reasons you stated!  BUT I also agree with Miss Marple that this IS a powerful and wonderful resource that CAN effect change and long may it continue. 

Sometimes its hard for people who are not "that bothered" about a particular matter to understand the depth of feeling people who are bothered have and I know from experience how frustrating it can be when people don't appear to see and treat issues that are important to individuals as serious.

I use my own name because I don't believe in using an id that people cant recognise me from.  I will never say anything here that I wouldn't say to anyones face and don't ever want to I want all my comments associated with ME.  Lots of people on here know exactly who I am where they can find me if they want to continue any conversation or debate and it stops me getting stroppy and bad tempered and at times down right rude!  I work in the ringers and have had several discussion with several of you about who is who... and who might that be... Theres an awful lot of us who are long term users of this forum and I think we really should know every one now but i guess only Mark knows the most and maybe not all of us. As PP said, We're neighbours!!

Maybe we should have more real names on here ?

Well said Lisa.
I'm willing to wager there are a few lacking the courage to reveal their real names, mainly due to offence they have caused on this forum . And before I'm accused of double standards please remember that one of you thought it apropriate to to print my name and was applauded for doing so.

Or maybe they just don't want to? Its fairly common practice to use aliases on the internet for security and privacy, not just cowardice  Smiley

It would not bother me in the slightest if people knew my identity, reason being, is that I would say openly the things I have posted on the forum, because either, I believe in what I say or I have the right to an opinion!  Which brings me back to the subject of Arm Chair Socialism  Undecided

actually I know I didn't make it sound so, but the point I was trying to make was not that of hiding behind an alias, but knowing you're making a statement as yourself.  It might on occasion make you step back and think more carefully about what you write!

It does on occasion do that to me Smiley

I appreciate aliases are a standard internet board/chat thing but that doesn't mean its right or an unbreakable rule!  We're all in OUR village discussing OUR village and its a bit different from most sites!! In fact having trolled through a tonne of local websites over the last few years I know its the only truly active local forum that I found!  

We're bloody excellent and different us lot... as is Mark Cheesy  Maybe we should start celebrating how fantastic this is and the fact we have access to such a fantastic tool to express our opinions.
