    I note with deep sadness that the thread 'Merry Christmas' started by Kev has disappeared.
    Australians have become a weak, lily-livered' lot. No longer in this country can anyone say anything without some 'even more lily-livered' Richard Cranium becoming offended.
    What a pitiful lot we've become. We should all feel ashamed.
    I grew up in a world where you could call your best mate 'a bastard' and he'd laugh WITH you.
    It's enough to make me quit this site and a lot of other things too. Noel.

    Yesterday, I noticed that my 'post count' had clicked over 700 and I was amazed that I had managed to reach that number without getting booted off for making inappropriate comments. This morning, the count had dropped back to below 700 and I wondered what may have been deleted - perhaps a few of my recent jokes had overstepped the boundary, but no.

    Why was the 'Merry Christmas' thread torn down?

    I think an explanation is warranted as to why it was deleted and if it is due to political correctness and offending the sensitivities of those who may not share the same belief, then it is certainly bail out time for me.

    If a member of the forum has complained about the thread, then have the balls to tell the rest of us what your problem is. You may get howled down by some of us, but you will gain a little bit of respect for standing your ground.

    If this is what the Forum has declined into it may well be time. Lyall.

    Not while I am still alive it won't be :) You guys rock :) Don't let one "Insert insulting name here" ruin it for what I consider the closest thing I have to best mates AKA family online :)
    You guys have supported and helped me so much, lets make Kev proud :)
