I didn’t want to just delete the comment because it was saying something, but that one small part was going to be a problem.
Oh, I get it.
Sometimes it feels like people are ignoring what I say and going "LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU !!!" or cutting out bits that may piss off, its a bit like talking past each other from ideological silo's......
From where I'm sitting, it appears that Russell made a slight adjustment to your post so as to not inflame feelings, or offend more people. I cannot see why you continue to act as though you have incurred a great injustice. This is Russell's space, and he moderates with a gentle hand. I think he is willing to make small sacrifices for the greater good. Please don't make his life harder for him. A lot of us like Public Address, and would like it to continue.
Thanks Brent. I meant to reply (we're trying to put a show together right now) but that's better than I could have phrased it.
I was about to commend Brent for his well chosen words too.
Back to the topic: quite cool to see these community-led developments towards a healthier Aotearoa.
The irony is not lost on me...
A final note on regulation, it may become harder with the ratification of the TPPA.
