If it's any consolation, HG isn't alone in seeking to disconnect the content of discussion group threads from the title and in allowing moderators free rein in such behaviour.
This could all get very circular, but if ever there's been a "I think, and hope, you know that's nonsense" then that post is it, surely.
1 : The content was filed under a heading which, although it admittedly bore a relationship to the content of the first post, bore no relationship to the purpose of the thread in general. That's been corrected.
2 : " disconnect the content of discussion group threads from the title and in allowing moderators free rein in such behaviour" See 1, above.
Discussion groups, btw? What discussion? This has been - as has been pointed out on numerous occasions - an entirely one-sided campaign of black propaganda. Point me at the 'Millipanda' caricatures posted on here? Or, re the 'Fat Eck' comments, the references to the appearance of the somewhat less than photogenic Ms Lamont?
As LP has said, if there is a policy point to make on behalf of your political party, make it, please.
