Interesting thread Tetley. important too
it will come as no surprise that texting for me is often problematic.....texting anything often comes out wrong. face to face is usually fine.
how are we to know what we can say?
I joined only as a garden forum. we could keep it as such ...?
I have started threads like the birthday one (for linking us) and the joke one (just for the fun) ...the former seems popular; the latter has perished.
the "worries" thread is essential isn't it? Some don't seem to like it but most of us do I think
Religion and politics is a no go then? But why? Can't we express views without nastiness? If not we can decide here to exclude them.
threads that provoke but not in a nasty way....are these wanted? If we post only safe uncontroversial stuff is that what we really want? How boring would that be?
Not all threads are inclusive.....the chats over virtual coffee, the clamour for Poldark, etc are not for me but I can pass over them....but this is no reason to exclude them
Dsvid's post about his family's ordeal with cancer puts everything else into perspective. This too is an important ingredient here even though it is of serious concern.
As grown ups here we can decide what sort of forum we want. My view is we keep everything in as long as lawful and decent. for me too, to post with more awareness and tact
imteresting to read what others want and don't want from the forum . We can then respect and abide by the conclusions.
