    Good or bad.

    What do you chaps think.

    Should we burn books because we disapprove of someone else freely expressing themselves. Whether or not we agree with what they say.

    I for one fully support everyone's right to express themselves as they see fit. So long as they accept that others may disagree and there may be ramifications

    surely there should be laws for taste and decency?

    I am against censorship, certainly. Everyone has the right to free speech.


    However, with my mod hat on I would say in the context of this board: when people register with this board they agree to abide by the board rules; if those rules are broken then action will be taken. Otherwise people are free to express their opinion, no matter how controversial.

    I have absolutely no desire to do such a thing, are you a mentalist at all.

    The very thought makes me feel ill. Where would I get such a thing.

    If he wishes to post naked images of himself on the interweb, that is his business. I for one wish no part of it.

    What case - I asked a simple question with regard to censorship.

    You started talking about the fact that a mutual friend had posted naked images of himself on the net. That is a matter for him and of no interest to me. I assume he was not coerced into doing it. It was his choice to do, as it is everyone else's. As with you and your punt, or your singing.

    I was discussing freedom of expression, discussing views which others may disagree with and generally chatting of this and that.

    I can assure you I have no interest in naked images of any man.

    I gave an internet link to a friend in good fun. I did this because I knew he would never post the link here.

    What I did was wrong, as I think that the private forum the link was from should be completely private. I breached the unwritten code of trust of that forum, when I consider the situation in retrospect.

    No, I did not sign an agreement, or swear an oath, but what is done in private should remain there. I am disappointed in myself, and I apologise.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?
