Now then, there's been a lot of personal insults flying about on this site recently.
Whilst we here at Pits'n'pots are eager to see some lively debate and challenging of each others views and opinions, we really DON'T want the debates to be dragged into slanging matches and trading of insults.
So, we, the Pits'n'pots bloggers, had a bit of a chinwag last night, and have decided that, although we have dedicated this blog to the people of Stoke on Trent, so they can have their say, we would like to issue a warning to anyone being disrespectful and name calling. We will not allow this on the site, and if it continues, we will pull the plug on the entire site.
This would be a great shame, as it seems to be taking off nicely, word is getting round that you can air views about any number of topics of local interest, and we really do want it to be THE vehicle for debate in Stoke on Trent.
We can only do this if you, the commenters, keep your posts respectful. It's great to challenge someone's views/opinions/beliefs, but not to trade insults.
You have been warned! As we are keen to ensure the site remains fresh, if anyone has any items of interest which they would like to debate, just let us know and we'll start an article for discussion.
Keep it respectful, keep it challenging, but keep it insult-free. Thanks, on behalf of Tony & the team of bloggers.
