Title: When will Baldy return?

Al,
Your banning of Baldy deserves a response. This outrageous decision is a scandal. When will he return?  ;)

ps I'm acting purely in my capacity as local troublemaker and ne'er-do-well

My guess is when he learns to stop feeding the trolls.

i think he is mearly silenced for a while, not banned

and bob is more than likely right to.... he gotta stop feeding them dam trolls.....  ::) 
it doesnt matter where you go there is always someone just out to cause trouble,  ill feeling just for the fun of it... though what kicks they get is beyond me.

Glad to see you are back - but please, as mentioned before - write your message and then WAIT - Ask yourself, - "Is it likely to cause an offence I do not intend?"

If so, re-write as a message you would not mind being at the other end of!

You ARE a good councillor - You do not need conflict!!

More like .... is any small-minded trouble-maker, or their supporters (on their behalf) likely to deliberately misinterpret anything and then try to stir it up out of context and over the top .....   (http://s154.photobucket.com/albums/s248/swedane/Icons/th_zipped.gif)  (http://s154.photobucket.com/albums/s248/swedane/Icons/?action=view&current=zipped.gif)

Hmm, no, more like... "Do I really need to reply to an obvious troll?" ;)

But at least then you do have a reasonable chance of defending yourself, or others may (as I did in your comments re "sub-sectors" in retail).

I will not always agree with you as you know from past Council meetings, but let the electorate know you for the reasoned arguments you can, and do, put forward and not for the tit-for-tat petty episodes we see here and elsewhere.

Sadly these do prevent people seeing the way you can act for the town!! To those who will attack you anyway - turn the other cheek and "do not bite". Difficult I know, but I believe you can do it.

Also, please, recognise that others will not always share your views - this does not make them "ignorant", "mis-informed" or "stupid". It is called democracy and we may, or may not, by reasoned arguments change their minds - if not, so be it! Sometimes these same people have me re-think my position!!

Sorry if I appear to be lecturing or moralising - I do not intend to, but I do sincerely believe that you are a good councillor for the town, but can sometimes be your own worst enemy!

Some sound advice there I think. But a bit patronising.

I think Russell is big enough and bald enough to take care of himself.

Not meant to be at all patronising, but having now said my piece, I will now "shut up".

However, I still hope that Russell will continue.

Just read an article on the WT site- I have to say that Sally Beenwell's rants make me really cringe - they're not funny, clever, groundbreaking or worth reading. I'm not doing this to slate, but I get bored of the 'Cllr Heather Hawker' remarks - come up with something funny please!
