RE: Read Me - Recent Complaints
Have you heard the one about the emotionally delicate, black , mormon, disabled, one legged, gay, Scottish,vegan, trade unionist, member of the Labour party who went camping in winter with his cat and amateur radio?

Nup , pity cos its a beaut ? Smile

LS I'm in 100% agreement I dont mind banter or genuine criticism of any subject so long as the objection is not based on simple bigotry, I dont like it, but I'm opened very worried about us starting down the same slippery slop the other forums went. Many of our members came to this haven of common sense from forums simply because of excessive moderation and a few fools who were offended by absolutely everything.
I still get a giggle when a miserable cow called me " a typical racist bigot" on another forum some years ago but was left speachless but unapologetic when I pointed out my wife is from Hispanic and Roma gypsey heritage, Indeed she had trouble at school cos her head of year was sure she was a foreigner !!!

Slippery slopes in both direction NR Bigotry on one side and censorship on the other.

We need to act responsibly to keep the freedom of speech, and not allow bigotry to take a hold as a result of that freeedom.

WAGS? Wives At GameS? Why does he hate footballers wives.....aside from the obvious reasons?

Wigs? What's wrong with bald people that want to keep in heat, but don't suit hats?

Wugs? What's wrong with Jonathan Ross' pronunciation of Rugs?

Wygs? What's wrong with bad spelling of wigs?

W8gs? What's wrong with REALLY bad spelling of wigs?
I'm still confused by what's started this thread....other than complaints. Can someone please PM me and let me know what's going on?!?!?

I am interested in your EDC bag that matched the Ugg boots. Please advise!


To be fair, the misses has asked me if we can store food for the cats and degu's.....just in case. Of course I've said yes.
Arnt the degus food for the cats????

Besides they'd make a nice pair of mittens at a stretch.
And the cats would make furry underpants...

No more more mention of Islamic terrorists their targets and tactics
No more mention of the risk of paedaphiles, bestialists, necrophiliacs or sado masachistics
No more debate about the huge influx of Black Africans or Asians / Asiatics destabilising UK communities?

Whats that I see in the distance ? Oh its just a slippery slope Smile

Well thats it then, no more conversation...
I like prepping and believe its extremely important BUT all work and no play makes jack a dull boy...
Maybe it was a fatty complaining about my zoo scanner bit??
Hey if you dont like being called fat... stop eating all the cakes...
If you were offended by that comment I didn't say it it was N.R......

Worryingly, I LOVE CAKE!!!!!

Oh wait, I run every morning, go to the gym 4-5 times a week, regularly enjoy lots of sexercise, and I love a nice fight in the cage, or training for one.

With all that fun....you NEED the cake and calories it holds.

Oh yeah, and the wife keeps trying to get me out on the bike for sodding huge rides!!! (anything further then the end of the road should involve a motor).

You can eat over 10'000 calories a day (that's a lot of cake) and still lose weight. It just means you need ice baths, and a load of exercise!!!

However I care greatly for SD and greatly respect his wisdom and guidance and I like this forum, So hopefully the offensive stuff will subdue, but I hope we can find a way of identifying the poor delicate easily offended souls so i can ignore them, Thats fair I believe.
So if anyone is of a delicate nature and offended by anything I post please have the decency to speak up about it and dont go running to SD, then if I know who I am offending I can ignore and everyone wins Yes?

I don't think any of the complaint was aimed at you personally NR.

There has certainly been a lot of Xenophobic BS spouted that I find distasteful, but have chosen to completely ignore. That's the sort of thing the forum should be mindful of.
I personally don't think talking about the blatant over immigration is xenophobic if that's what the complaints about...
I believe it is relevant to prepping because of the number they now let in we could face greater numbers of "problems" post shtf.
Would not the french moan and complain if 10's of thousands of English went to France and sat on benefits that honest workers found hard to get... AND because they were classed as homeless got pushed to the top of local authority housing lists AND got better housing than local people?
After all I live on what you'd term a rough council estate and there's no immigrants rehoused here, They are all in council subsidized private housing that gets fitted with all the latest mod cons for them.
My private house was a shit hole and the council didn't give a toss because I'm a white male.
My heating worked for 10 minutes then went off all day, the stairs were close to collapse etc...and the landlord who did nothing... foreign...would the council do anything about him? no...
How do foreigners come over here and get mortgages when normal folks can't because they don't make the credit grade?
My ex partners landlord is Nigerian... how'd he get credit to own three or more houses?
Preferential treatment by banks and government officials to foreigners no matter their nationality over their own citizens breeds and is the cause of xenophobia if it exists.
All most British citizens want is fair and equal treatment no matter the
colour of your skin or race, sex or religion.
Pulling your face and gripping about things doesn't make anybody racist, Don't you think foreigners complain, and call us?
Nobody gets on their back all the time and calls them racist because "oh no" the politically correct p.c. brigade would take offense.... and complain.
Have you seen the small press articles about Brixton in London where black women scream in the faces of white people on the bus and start ranting saying how much they hate white people etc...
How little press does that get? How much press does it get if a white person calls a foreigner? a damn site more.
Its called reverse racism that's allowed by the p.c. brigade because its o.k.
Just don't complain if your on the receiving end because then you'd be racist.
