I love this site and those thousands who comment. You are intelligent, funny, robust and sometimes very confronting.

 

But there is only myself to run this site and the hours spent trying to delete offensive comments takes from my researching of the many stories you will want to know about on my desk…. (to say nothing of my exploding golf handicap).

 

Could I ask once again… please don’t attack each other, try to stay on-topic and if you are the victim of an attack, do not respond to it, ignore it. Continue on with your contribution to the debate and you will find others will support you.

 

From now on, those who continue to say some pretty crook (denigrating stuff) about others, I will assume are trying to destroy our site.

 

Thanks everyone,

Larry

I enjoy freedom of speech and freedom of expression. I find it difficult, and sometimes bewildering, to comprehend that despite robust debate on some issues, an appreciation and respect of others’ points of view are not accepted as they are put forward. The denigration that is employed by some when their single issue point of view is not accepted is not a useful contribution to the debate, but a distraction better off left to fester on another blog another day, not this blog. So sayeth the Pyg.

I am going to up the compliment, Larry. Your site is not just pretty damned good, it is pretty damned excellent. What I like about it is that you are not just a one-eyed reactionary barracker, you are driven by a strong sense of justice, fairness and respect for the institutions that hold our society together. You don’t have a default “right wing” position, which I probably tend to have, nor that dreadful, pessimistic ends-justify-the-means-and I’m-alright-Jack crap that characterises the left in this country. Plus you promote REAL and sincere debate. This, together with your insightful humour and reliable bullshitometer,… Read more »

It is unfortunate that the ignorant and the illiterate use any forums just to have their say , on topic or not, this gives the luvvies from the ABC and the greens to label all followers of your blog as right wing morons, which (the majority of us) we are not!

The self-indulgent bitching, usually ends up in a confused gibberish engagement.

Another elephant in the room not being talked about enough is the mental state of all of us. Road rage, trolley rage, everything rage, all of us have more anxst in our lives than we should. The 2 greatest epidemics plagueing medicare are anxiety & depression. The closet communist trolls having been yelling racist, sexist, homophobe, islamophobe, xenophobe & other hate filled bile at us all for so long now that most of us ordinary, normal people already have our backs up, before we even start. The PC thought police have been playing macro/global head f#%*, mind games with us… Read more »

We must all keep our sense of humour. Sadness= Labor back in power.

Well said Larry! Too many treat your site as their own personal soap box to sprout about any topic that takes their fancy and to denigrate anyone who does not share their views. The bulk of us enjoy your articles and even when we disagree with your point of view, we welcome the opportunity to add our comments. Thanks again Larry (ans ps. the cartoons are great)

I was thinking about what I was saying about leftie sense of humour in my post below … I am just inventing the world’s first feminist joke ….. ” I was at the uni last week and a man opened the door for me and I said don’t you dare do that to me you male chauvinist pig” hahahaha.

Your site is still pretty darned good, Larry. The inside info you and others have access to is astounding, not to mention your courage and diligence to put it up and get it out. Also, I like your humour and many of the jokes and the light hearted nature of many of the responses … we gotta larf! You don’t get any laughs out of the lefties or greenies. Strange about that – it must be significant of something … genetic perhaps, or are they just not human? I digress …. keep it up and do the best you can.

haa” Larry preaching to the newbies. a bit hypocritical don’t you think? the cple of feminist posters on here who nine times out of ten are off topic should dictate the forum movement . larry early face book days for you had you banned for your thoughts on a woman. not that i agreed with them not at all. but the real discrimination is the feminist attitude to men everyone should take a chill pill its the inter web you do not know who i am or me know you so work with inn your means aloha

Tazz – without being rude, if we need the cricket score we can get it. People want to genuinely comment on the article to which it relates. Once you say to people “Go right ahead and put the Guatemalan Golf Open results on here” they will put all sorts of nonsense, including offensive and idiotic stuff, that just makes people walk away. If we can stay on the subject and not be abusive, that will encourage people to participate.

Well said. Unfortunately other sites (left wing) use any excuse to stop free speech. However anyone who makes personal attacks should be deemed to be irrelevant not to be taken personally.
