Not necessarily the truth, gabyone, but perhaps a democratically acceptable compromise ?
To keep the discussion alive and useful, one should not withdraw from debating zealots, but insist on explaining any available or imagined evidence in favor of whatever “zealotry” or “conspiracy theory”.
This might not achieve changing the mind of zealots, but if we stick to debating evidence and not resort to mere “name calling”, the debate would be useful, interesting and perhaps widening understanding of the realities we have to cope with.

Has anyone else been reading about the the wombats sharing their underground tunnels with other species of animals during the fires, and saving their lives. Would be nice if we humans could cooperate in same manner.

But I am not going to discuss this any more with you Rob as you and now Supergold are becoming so incredibly boring in your no win anti climate change campaign.
Maybe you should read my post again. Not once was climate change mentioned.

Which is better for you Bryan?
That or watching paint dry?
I’m perplexed. What exactly do people here want to discuss?
In recent times I’ve posted three issues:
“abiding by the wishes of the group”
“windows defender scam”
“pohutakawa being a weed”

A topic of discussion with today’s society. Raising our children etc. Going back to grownups days of raising the children. The norm I suspect back then was Dad would go out and earn the money to pay the mortgage /rent and provide money to pay for food and energy to heat/cook etc. Mum would stay at home, she would enjoy a family benefit payment to help with some costs in raising junior until he/she was semi independent ( school) and then some mum’s would look for part time work only so she could be home when her children came home from school.
In my time as I sent my children to playschool etc, you were expected to be on a roster to be a mother help at the playschool. Later when children were all at school parents were called to help supervise the children at camps or out of school activities ie swimming etc.
I found in doing the parent activity is was great for social contact/friendship with other mother’s in my area. With the result now approx 60 yrs plus later some of the mother’s are still friends of mine. Sadly some have moved on to other locations and some sadly died.
What about today raising our children , many to most mother’s are taking six weeks maternity leave then returns to work putting her new child into day care. I personally dont feel easy about this as the child will grow into school years etc with out Mum being a large part of his/her life and will take on the values of the child care she spent most of her/his pre school years, and not so much the values of his/her parents. When child sees his/her parents particularly after work Mum/Dad they will often be tired and be keen to see child away to bed ASAP so they can recover from the days work.
