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

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. 300 per week now coming in with the virus really pisses me of when we (most of us) have worked really hard to avoid Covid.

We have not undertaken to obey, and we will not obey, any man or set of men whatever …’
    It’s interesting to read their vow at this later time, just a hip, hop to 200 years ago.
