The Daily Blog Open Mic – 31st May 2024


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

The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

All in all, TDB gives punters a very, very, very wide space to comment in but we won’t bother with out right lies or gleeful malice. We leave that to the Herald comment section.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist abuse, homophobic abuse, racist abuse, anti-muslim abuse, transphobic abuse, 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.

      • Actually I think that Bob is an algorithm or whatever. He is programmed to praise National and down the lefties which in his ‘mind’ includes Labour. But he gets response, similar to what I believe is called a ‘teaser’ at a horse-stud stables, preparing a mare for the attentions of a winning, noble stallion. We unfortunately don’t have the attentions of human beings at this sublime level.

      • Further to my earlier comment – my bad – when I referred to Bob I meant Bob1st and not any other person who awkwardly uses that name as his pseudo.
