In just over 12 hours, one person has started three threads about Brexit and one about Macron (with a soupcon of Brexit, for added flavour). I would like to ask them - and these are genuine questions - if they write the posts or just cut and paste them. I'm also interested in whether they are a local who just posts here, or someone who belongs to a group. I've moaned a lot about the excess of political sermonsing, but I'd like to understand more about the rationale behind them. I also wonder if anyone out there has changed their views as a result of reading one of these posts.

@ Earl, the issue is that the more you try to shut someone or shut debate in general down, the more they will be defiant and resist. I can't speak on every individuals behalf, but I've certainly been more emboldened and willing to debate if people try to dismiss or shout me down.

I'm not quite as fussed, or angered by discussing politics, but this forum looks like its accepted politics, and also a neat compromise by webbo to optionally hide politics threads, as clearly users can't be trusted to overlook a thread they can't stand without resisting the temptation to get shouty and angry about it.

I didn't notice the new option to hide the political posts. What a good idea! I don't think the objection to political threads is their subject matter, but more a resentment of being lectured to by two or three people who are effectively hogging the Forum. However, Webbo's elegant solution is the perfect answer. I shall click it now.

Hello

Lewes is beautiful and I have been considering moving there for a while. I am now thinking of buying a place on Friars... more
