Having made the short trip from Lewes to Brighton on a number of occassions to catch Festival shows, I was impressed to find the most comprehensive coverage over @ www.magazine.brighton.co.uk - their theatre section is awash with fine writing and debatable opinions. Be nice to see the same on this site!

Haven't come across this publication, Brighton Magazine, before but it's excellent. Makes this site look like a poor relation.

Yep,it is a good read. But I am thinking maybe it is a plug?
And yes,it would be good if this site had something similar,but surely all this costs money? This fine site costs nothing to us,but I feel sure Webbo has to fork out something.Would you both be happy to contribute?

Am I missing something here? Isn't this a Lewes based website for the benefit of (mainly) Lewes people?
If I wanted to find out about Brighton Pride or similar, I would visit a Brighton website.

Local ad-based site for local people. Bit of a sad attitude when second biggest arts festival has just taken place down the road. Back to your stories of missing cats and spagettio!

And your point being ? How much non Brighton stuff do Brighton Magazine have (just had a quick look and I couldn't see any), after all there are plenty of even bigger things going on in London ! Thats just the point you see, this is a local forum for Lewes (the clue is in the name), just like Brighton Magazine is a local ad based site for Brighton, and so on. Can't really see the problem there. We all know how to use a computer to find out about Brighton if we want to !

It's a pity the Whippersnappers and the Wild Blue Yonders of this world aren't a bit more subtle with their marketing exercises. Still, a 2nd class degree in business studies from a polytechnic pretending to be a university doesn't encourage nuance.

Nail on the head, Precious Things. When I went to know what is happening in Skidrow-on-Sea, I will either find a suitable website, perhaps including the one you are promoting, or I will open the pages of Private Eye. Until that time, www.lewes.co.uk does me just fine.

You really are a charmer, Spongebob.
Any other loathsome prejudices you'd like to share?

That wasn't the original spongebob posting (ie myself). you're welcome to contact webbo who can hopefully work out who it was.

Happy to take your word for it SB, although if Webbo IDs them and you find them I'll gladly give them a stern talking to!

I see the username has now changed to the more appropriate "homophobe". Thanks webbo.

I would hazard a guess that:
a) very few people even notice
b) half of the very few that do think it's the work of a few... more
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
