    I did not press the button Lilith because the offensive posters previous seemed to post at start on a holiday to maximum coverage & I suspected it would be a waste of time complaining just as it was at Easter.

    Ive only pressed the abuse button once on one of freeminds posts about a fortnight ago (long weekend). I think it was deleted by admin but I was never notified.  I think quite a few pressed the abuse button on same post.  Yes, Id like to see something from admin about the post being deleted as when you scroll back you tend to wonder “what the heck”

    I like this quote from Mike Hoskins in today’s Herald.

    “If I had something to say every time a petition was started, a column was written, a barb was tossed or Twitter lit up … I’d have died of exhaustion years ago.”

    “You pick your fights in life, I pick mine based on what’s important to me, and what’s important to me is professionalism and being above the fray. What someone I’ve never met may think of me is not important.”
