Hide Bonfire posts?

Webbo is it possible to have a filter that hides bonfire-related posts - much like the hide politics option? I'm not expressing an opinion either way but I'm sure a lot of people would like to be able to opt out?

Good idea Nancy. It could be called In-Breds Only filter.

Bonfire posts. A long standing tradition far removed from the politically correct, tinny nonsense on social media nowadays. Long may they last.

If only true life were as simple as this forum; we could simply "hide" the DFL's.

Renee - yes there's absolutely nothing nonsensical about bonfire. Adults wearing silly costumes (the reasons for which most members can't quite explain) and setting fire to stuff...

Actually Bonfire is probably one of the last properly real, in the real sense of the word, cultural events in Britain. Of course it's not politically correct. Instead It's serious and requires real dedication.Thank the gods for something that's not tailored to any kind of
tamed media self consciousness, and class ridden propriety and correctness. And It's certainly not 'carnival'. Bonfire's roots go back way beyond that. Shame on you Archie - I hope you have a tongue in your cheek. It also by the way has a positive and constructive influence on young people in this town.

Well said Renee. I take your point although I do think that Bonfire is taken a bit too seriously by some while failing to acknowledge the humour of the tradition. But I understand that it means different things to different people.

Definitely need a ‘born-inbreds’ filter. Doesn’t stop you having to encounter them in real life though, Lewes can feel a bit like that film ‘Deliverance’

JAM - I've always thought that! The Born and Inbreds (shall we refer to them as BAIBs from now on?) seem terrified of anything that dare infiltrate their tiny little world of council houses (funded by the DFL's), fear of change and hatred of anyone who dares to be anything other than working class. Might be time to wake up?

I’ve taken out my anger frustration & hope online, & it mainly adds up to some people agree and most don’t.
I’ve more than likely done more harm than good, so committing given up the habit of getting into arguments online.

In recent years, psychologists have found a powerful connection between trolling and what’s known as the “dark tetrad” of personality traits: psychopathy, sadism, narcissism, and Machiavellianism. The first two traits are significant predictors of trolling behavior, and all four traits correlate with enjoyment of trolling. Research published in June by Natalie Sest and Evita March, two Australian scholars, shows that trolls tend to be high in cognitive empathy, meaning they can understand emotional suffering in others, but low in affective empathy, meaning they don’t care about the pain they cause. They are, in short, skilled and ruthless manipulators.
