    Is there a rule against just being obnoxious for the sake of being obnoxious.

    It's a "read between the lines" rule, like the one about starting new Prius threads...

    Yes Johan your threads about your Rc cars are irritating.


    But that is your own thread and it is your own fault if you go in on a thread about Scalectric cars.

    Yes....

    Rule 3, supported by 1 and 13.

    "* intended to cause or be the cause of friction between members
    * insulting to any other forum member"

    And it has already been used a few minutes ago.

    So where do we start the Winnie Madikizela-Mandela posts?

    On a serious note Dirk, with all due respect, is dialogue surrounding such an individual not necessary in todays minefield of issues? Yes i agree, delete the nasty stuff, but at least allow us to debate her pro's and con's. What value she has added to our current political situation, if any at all? What influence she had on the political landscape, if any at all?

    Alternately, and i know its all your prerogative because you ultimately take the flak at the end of the day, and again with due respect, tell us why you wont entertain such a thread? I too am aware of the hate speech laws and i think most of us are, but at the end of the day we are all supposed to be adults and as such should act as adults, irrespective of our motives for being here.

    You are most welcome to, good luck. I will however not have this site associated with the comments that were made on the others, nor do I have the time to sit and delete individual posts.

    Thanks for the quick come back. You are 100% right. Would be a waste of time. I personally cant think of anything positive to say about who or what she was and i was taught that if you dont have anything good to say then dont say anything at all. I have been guilty of overstepping that rule a few times but in this case it is best to just scroll on by.

    There are areas in the political history of this country that are extremely sensitive, often rightly so.

    But there are also people around - IMHO - who are looking for issues and comments on social media to take offence to in order to make political capital.

    Unfortunately, that is what necessitates Dirk drawing the line where he does. It is not that most of us here are not adult, but that there are outsiders who would gleefully exploit any borderline indiscretions. And it would take only one Richard Cranium to cause irreparable damage to this forum.

    People are dumping posts in the Pub again.

    It is sad, because some of the threads would provide excellent reference material in the right place.
