    Clearly you have had a very damaged history wherever you have laid your head in Hilly Billy Land .
    You need to visit Team GB for inspiration and hope . Forget about your age .

    You helped prove me right! Thanks for that.

    Multiculturalism has failed in the UK.

    BTW, there is no hyphen or space in multiculturalism. It's one word. It's spelled F-A-I-L-U-R-E.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I've posed this question more than a few times and it's gone nowhere. So should Cigar be banned? Moderated? If we're going to be consistent, then everyone who posts an off-color remark on a thread is subject to moderation.

    So we can have it either way - not both ways. We can increase the moderation to the extent that only on-topic replies are acceptable and anything near the belt is actionable.

    Do you or anyone else want the latter? Be careful what you wish for.
    Why are off color remarks OK? Does name calling and coarse language really enhance a post? Isn't it really an excuse not to have to articulate your opinion - a cheap defense?

On any forum right vs left there is going to be strong feelings and name calling, but not a contemptuous spammer, that's what should be banned, period.

    Not censoring is the issue.

    Moderating excess is another story.

    The bitterness of an octogenarian , who may have exposed himself frequently , but never to British multi- culturism .
    You write your American labels the ways you need , we will write them as they really are .
    Now let's see how many shootings we have had in Team GB this week .
    Not one?
    Surprise , surprise .

    Just posting insults and not really engaging in the discussion.

    It means many things to many people few of whom stop to define it. I think some, many use it to mean anything that annoys them.

    I would define it as posting something inflammatory and not following it up with discussion when challenged--we all post things that might be considered by another as inflammatory, but you're not trolling if you are willing to discuss it. A troll will not discuss, or will follow up with more inflammatory posts, he's looking for a fight.

    Technically, from a bit of research around the Internet, trolling is one poster posting something inflammatory to get other posters to fight among themselves while the troll looks on.

    Our policy (hi, I'm a moderator :-)) is that we ask members to ignore those they consider trolls. If that doesn't work, we, the mods, will do something, eventually.

    Thanks for the question!!

    I ignore the idiots, there are quite a few. When someone else quotes them I occassionally ridicule them and move on. Stupid people irritate me more than anything on earth, and I've said some pretty mean $#@! to them. I have no apology for it. They are beneath contempt.
