Editorial license: delete the subs you don't, personally like and keep it in the family. Don't trust the voters.
So there you have it: editorial hegemony rules

Chill Plucky. It's his site so he makes the rules. Compared with other places, this is a very laid back forum.
Hey let's all have a beer and enjoy the weather.
if I had your inability to take a hint Plucky I'd keep on and on and on. oh you are. oh I am. oh me. oh my. o b sensible
Come on Plucky, the games up.
Either cut the crap or piss off. There's a good chap.
If you bothered to take a look at what I have done on here, instead of just hurling insults, I think you would find that I have covered a lot more than just 'knob jokes'. Mr Sensible and Mr Dickens or Shakespeare, you may not like me or what I write, but you could remain civil. I had thought and hoped that this was an inclusive place.
Chill Plucky otherwise you'll go to the Naughty Step.
It would appear, Scroaty, that I am well and truly on the Naughty Step, anyway.And I am fast losing the will to care a fuck about it.
I've been out all day, come home, and now I've had a few pints.
What's going on, Plucky?
come on. let's start summink! We can have them. What did they say to you plunky?
[SADLY, I AM ACTUALLY DRUNK IN REAL LIFE]
Having seen the olympian flouncing on a calorie counting website, I had assumed that bakers of satirical biscuits would be less foolish.
Mimosaphants: tough as an elephant's calloused foot when it comes to giving it; as delicate as a mimosa when it heads their way.
Now, how about less 'personality' and more humour?
PS It was a friend of a friend of a friend who was counting calories. Not me. No, definitely not. Never in a million years. Etc.
I'm not sure I get your banter.
PS. I have been drinking though
PPS. here. I've had a business idea. do you want to hear it? hic
Yes, I do.
Come lie on my couch and tell the Doctor...
Surely editorial decisions have to lie with the editor - irrespective whether those being edited feel that it is 'hegemonous' or not (which I had to look up wot with being a thicko and all).
Editorial license is precisely what an editor has, especially for Mr O'F on NB, seeing as it's his own place.
Scroat puts it very succinctly -- 'it's his site so he makes the rules'.
Exactly. This is honestly a really liberal place, with very little editorial censorship.
I think JO'F does a pretty good job of sitting back and leaving us to it most of the time. And if he wants to pick up the ball and take it home he can, it's his ball.
Compared with some of the other web sites, I frequent, this place is a right haven for P u/C and bad taste.
That isn't a complaint
If there's been a torrent of posts on similar themes, then maybe the guy who runs the place can say "enough".
The problem is, we're not used to it, so maybe knowing it can happen can make us wiser.
Or we could sulk, throw out the toys and get pissed.....
I liked the "test" sub more.
What bullshit is this? J O'F can do what he likes, and I like that he doesn't do that much and lets us all get on with it.
Plucky, you're a fine fellow but I do wish you'd stop flouncing.
I am fast losing the will to care a fuck about it
That's it, you're slowly getting the idea. Now sit back, relax and have a nice hot cup of decaffeinated tea - preferably - without any sugar in it.
Hope you're feeling better by now, he said, 9 hours later.
Your post reminded me of a very drunken Aussie friend who phoned me one evening and seriously wanted me to help him raise £100 million to turn the Isle of Man into a Formula One circuit. Thank God he didn't mean the Isle of Wight!
On the subject of this post - and I know that I do change the subject sometimes - I find these arguments among you all really quite hilarious. I have sat here and chuckled my way through this lot - keep it comin', I say.
if I had your sense of humor I wouldn't be laughing now. only joshing doctor. take a chill pill as the man said
