A number of flags have been raised on this thread. I have judged them all against the community guidelines and I upheld precisely zero of them.
I have made my views perfectly clear on a) pointless ‘our forum is better than your forum’ playground antics and on b) this forums attitude to freedom of speech.
With that last line in mind, I find the fact that some are now trying to forcibly involve me in this childish pissing contest by evolving a flame war into a flag war to be quite detestable.
The fact that some people - active on this thread - don’t seem to see that they are guilty of practising everything they accuse Monzo forum users of is truely staggering.
My honest reaction is simply to say: “Grow up…”
I am asking you all now to consider the following before continuing this ‘debate’…
- Am I actually adding to the conversation?
- Is my tone correct - and by correct, I specifically mean be civilised or don’t bother.
- Am I making criticism of an idea or a person (or a group of people) - if so, don’t!
- Is this a knee-jerk reaction? - go outside for 5.
This community will be what we make of it. Be mindful that this thread already looks pretty bad to outsiders - please don’t make that worse.
