Has anyone seen or heard of a petition to close down this website? My friend who lives in Neville had someone knock on their house yesterday to ask her to sign it. She didn't as she had no clue what this site was!

Lol. Did they give a reason for wanting it closed?

Hah! Really? How very exciting. We must be annoying someone quite considerably!

They must be a bit of a loon. Most people, when annoyed by something on a website, just don't look at that site any more. Wanting it shut down is more than a bit extreme.
Perhaps it's Paul Newman!

Did they knock on only one door, there must be more than one person from Nevill who post on this forum. Sounds like a big wind up to me.

Sounds like a load of bucking follocks to me. Who were they planning to hand the petition to, I wonder? The Prime Minister? Norman Baker?

Ask your friend John, if the person who knocked on her door was about two foot high with big ears and a large floppy hat. Only I was thinking it could have been a Troll.

I was told that it was in protest about the way the forum side of the website was not controlled or moderated and that many people were being bullied and put down. As I said before my friend did not have a clue what it was about and she only spoke of it over a drink last night.
Anyway, i thought I would post this FYI but I can quickly see that I will not post again as in a few posts I have already been accused of lying. Good luck!

For what it's worth John, I was not accusing you of lying, and I suspect most of the posters above were not accusing you of lying either. I think most people were expressing doubt that anyone could, or indeed would want to, get www.lewes.co.uk shut down.

Oh let's rip another poster to shreds for contributing to this forum. No wonder this place just has a few clickey posters these days who are all up each others rectums

I thought the tone had been pretty good on this forum recently.
Odd that a thread about it should descend this quickly.

how delicate do you have to be before it should be outlawed for you to post/read.

John, dont be put off by a bit of gentle ribbing, I certainly have had my share of it. You will find the regulars on here are very genuine and a bit of ribbing livens up a very interesting forum. So welcome John and lets hear from you again.

I must admit, my posts dropped a few levels of politeness when Paul Newton started his hate filled bully-boy invectives. I don't see there's much wrong in fighting fire with napalm though - the meek are never gonna inherit anything. I agree that the tone on the forum is much improved since he's gone, maybe that canvasser should take another look.

I have noticed that there is a crackdown on `cyber bullying`in the media of late, so this site may be closed if something is not done to `mod`it a little.

Take a look at The Argus' website, they make Lewes Forum look like a Tellytubbies picnic.

Don't involve Norman Baker. He will only use it as an excuse to get his name in another article in the Sussex Express. This is a free country, and I enjoy being able to express my opinions easily on a friendly level. I also use the Argus website; a bit more serious perhaps, but fight politics with other politics instead of stupid marching in the streets.
