New FB page that Mick Symes doesn’t control. Claims to be uncensored.

Thanks blatant. Just had a quick look at it. I'm always amused by people having a go at symes. It will be interesting to see how it goes. A Facebook site in which people are just attacking other people might have limited appeal in the long run though. I won't be deserting the forum just yet. Lewes present is very quiet I see. It might be a sign of the times, a temporary phase, people just going off social media or people resenting symes' censorship.

Why do these narcissistic ego maniacs have so much time on their hands?

I see that symes has posted about lewes chat on his site, attacking it for calling itself unmoderated and then removing racist comments. I'm not aware it did call itself unmoderated but have always accepted that moderating a public site is difficult. Further on in the thread someone has commented on symes moderation in recently removing a thread of over 300 posts concerning the Zulus in borough bonfire. His attempt to justify removing the views of all these people is laughable. I have no wish to comment on the Zulus at all and if you wish to, please start your own thread.
What upsets me is the number of people who appear to support symes and are prepared to let him (or anyone) dictate what they can read and say on what is supposedly a public forum for the people of lewes.
I have no idea who Newell fisher is Imogen. I only care about his views on freedom of speech as moderator. Give him a chance to see how prepared he is to accept people posting views he does not agree with while keeping within the limits of offensiveness.

Perhaps it's for the best - we've got a climate hub and look what weather they're coming up with. Still, cold is the new warm if... more
