    Default No insults

    I'm all for 'freedom of speech' or 'freedom of expression' but even so you may have noticed we have a rule on here about no insults to other members. This is quite simply in order to maintain the forum without it degenerating into nothing but name-calling. Believe me it happens, grown adults left to their own devices begin to carry on like children. They quite possibly are children actually, pretending to be adults. Anyhow...

    In truth you're not allowed to bloody do it in everyday life anyway, section five of the Public Order Act makes it illegal to engage in "insulting words or behaviour" in England and Wales. Seems [MENTION=190]timey[/MENTION] is perfectly able to call us cunts all day long if he likes, but we can't blimmin' call him it back!

    Was this a step too far? Campaigners want the law scrapped, is that a good thing or a bad thing? It seems like the law is quite unworkable, and do people even know it exists, before the police arrest them for calling their horses gay?

    Next time someone flicks me the Vs on the motorway I might call a cop.

    I'm sure there is a similar law up here too so I'm not going to start calling you all cunts, not until I know for sure there isn't a law here at least.

    When insultz start on forums it usually leadz to someone being banned, the retaliator.

    Seen it many times on FH, the Daily Mirror and other forums.

    This is the best system, it's simply not done.

    There is someone on forum land right now who I would like to give a bollukin but being the gentleman I am???

    I like the system on here, it so obviously works. (And that is the most sensible post I am ever likely to make)
