    Update on Scoops policy re comments

    Good morning Scoop.
    I just thought I would ask for an update after your post a while back regarding racist remarks etc. It seems things are worse than ever with comments being racist or disruptive and no matter how much people report nothing is done. Are there any plans to tackle it?

    • @Da... your OP has the emphasis on racist remarks.

    • This is not aimed at anyone in particular. it's just a joke.

    • @Bo... Humour at the expense of someone else's discomfort is not actually humour, though.

    • @Bo... because Scoops original statement concentrated on that

    • @Bo... but this is my point, I don't see that statue as offensive or want it removed. I am not a sno..

    • @Le... 100% agree with everything you say here

    • @Ve... It was the Op that blocked certain people so they cannot comment.

    • @Bo... But with you as their spokesperson, they have nothing to worry about.

    • @Bo... perhaps the OP has good reason to block certain people. And maybe it's the last resort for so..

    • I don't think scoop would block anyone from this Loop as it is their own?

    • @Da... of course they wouldn't.

    • As the OP I can categorically say that I didn't block ANYONE for the reason to stop them commenting ..

    • @Bl... Oh I understand now - only people who agree with you are allowed representation.

    • This is strange. None of the people that have blocked me have posted on this thread. I wonder why?

    • @Al... they don't have direct access to the thread as they are blocked by the OP for previous reason..

    • @De... I think Alan knows that, Derek, hence my upvote and 'laughing' reaction (agreeing with him)...
