Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

Moderation rules are more lenient for this section, but try and play nicely.

 

 

Hey everyone, thank you for contacting us with the problems you are having at the moment with posting comments.

While you may be told your message has been trashed or disallowed or denied, they are in fact all remaining on site.

TDB Recommends NewzEngine.com

So please be patient and your comments will turn up.

We are working on the problem and will have a solution soon.

PS -While we are having this discussion about comments, we have always felt moderated comments were a way to go to avoid trolling. The Internet can be a pretty rude place at times so we wanted to try and reduce that.

How would everyone feel about

a) Direct posts to blogs.

b) Moderation after publishing (if we went down this path we would need volunteer moderators).

c) We are going to start clamping down more on personal abuse between commentators and would like to open up thoughts form you the readers about what you would like to see in terms of comments and what the rules should be.

Please leave comments below. Thoughts on what we will do will be published middle of next month.

Cheers TDB Team

  3. Is jonkey nactional and his mates trying to undermine and create a crisis in the public health system in Christchurch….and create a climate for the vultures of privatisation of health to worm their way into Christchurch’s superb, caring, expert, efficient public hospital and state run health system?…SHAME!

    Annette King is a very good opposition spokesperson on Health!

  5. Does it matter that the country is run by a high functioning psychopath?
    This is not hyperbole. It is a diagnosis. The man operates with all the morality of a Robber Corporation bent on short term advantage for their key shareholders, but with neither vision nor ambition beyond the next dividend.

    As our e-stunted attention spans shrink, many or even most of us are unable to detect the many oncoming catastrophes only a few years into the future, the shriveling of our reputation beyond our shores, to say nothing of the non-fiscal bottom lines normally associated with national governance.

    You have the perfect storm when those “watchdogs” of the press, long self-congratulatory for their essential truth-telling role in a effective democracy, are also under siege. Reduced to merely offering titillation from one news-day to the next as investigative journalism becomes a fading memory from a fading century.

    To fill this moral void we find not a sure footed leader with an instinctive feel for the most worthy course for the state, but rather a man without perspective or human instinct, giving us what we want, rather than what we need from the void of another focus group.

    Actually I have a feeling that it does matter. And quite a lot.

  6. 1000% Nick and Chooky,

    I can see this NO should apply to all that Keyster does.

    As he tries to change radically this land to become the dictator of New Keyland!

    Next he will change the country name, as “zeeland” Zealand he will say is a Dutch named place mand nmust go.

    As he is using the same excuse for the current flag not from this region so he will carry on with his own design for a name as Dictators do and rename it “New Keyland.`
