Thanks guys.....have been reading this site for a while, not frightened off so far (though have come close with a few 'heated debates')! As long as I restrain myself when a bsq appears think I'll be ok!

whats a bsq?????

I think the thing with heated debates (here or anywhere) is that people are not getting at you personally, just what you type on a screen, and whilst that can be construed as being you due to your words being your beliefs, never take anything to heart.

The people on here are a good bunch - come in to the Canada section and you'll see a nice debate on the cougar thread going on at the mo

Not sure which way it will go yet - name calling / reasoned arguement / peter out like a damp squib

BSQ = Bl**dy stupid question (harsh but [only now and then] fair)!! :-s
I love the debates they make it interesting, not sure I'd have the stomach to get involved though!
