Now we're talking. They sometimes let you swear on here too, but don't say f*ck or b*gger
Plenty of F on UKC but not on AN
The story is thus
A few years ago i was at a NAMHO annual conference at premises run by an educational establishment, and was using their WiFi on my laptop. I tried to get into the old "Dark Places", remember that, and found access blocked as "Unsuitable Content".
This puzzled me, as DP was hardly "Naughty Housewives", it was mainly devoted to the exploration of Wiltshire stone mines, so I logically assumed it must be stuff on the forum.
Well the aditnow forum is just a small part of the total resource. In fact it is an enormous resource for educational establishments.
I had a talk with Simon on this a while ago. Aditnow has always been strict, but we do have a bit of history of the odd 'spats'. I feel that it is our mutual interest that brings us together, but our politics and opinions on contentious subjects is what would divide us, so best to keep it off. Of course, all the right wing, left wing, blah, blah , blah pales into insignificance compared to the potentially explosive subject of mineral dealing.
I think I have said enough, so I leave it at that.
