Blog Watch – Wednesday

4 November 2015

Blog Watch is an open forum similar to Open Forum where any topic can be introduced, but with a focus on New Zealand blogs and social media.

This expands on the aim for Your NZ to be a joint project with the more people contributing and the more variety the better.

A general guideline – post opinion on or excerpts from and links to blog posts or comments of interest, whether they are praise, criticism, pointing out issues or sharing useful information.

If being critical address the issues and don’t do personal abuse. Constructive and reasonably balanced criticism is more effective than general moans.

As usual avoid anything that could cause any legal issues such as potential defamation or breaching suppression orders.

Remember – the Blog of the damned well determined to express opinions and hold to account regardless of attempts to shut us up.

Also remember that keeping things civil, legal and factual is more effective and harder to argue against or discredit.

If you want to display screen shots the images will need to be saved on the Internet and a link put in the comment. Sometimes full links don’t work, if I see any like this I will try to repair them in the comment when I get time. Note that image links should normally end something like .jpg .jpeg .png etc.

Note that sometimes other blogs get irate if their material is highlighted elsewhere but the Internet is specifically designed to share and repeat information and anyone who comments or puts anything into a public forum should be aware that it could be republished elsewhere (but attribution is essential).

If comments raise issues deserving of a full post I may use content to do a post, and may expand on it.

If anyone has information worthy of a full post you can contact me, details in About.

    LOL, Twitterati feminist harpies snarking about no parade for the NZ wymmins rugby team The Silver Ferns:

    “Stephanie Rodgers Retweeted
    thalia ‏@sacraparental 12h12 hours ago

    thalia Retweeted CarolynS

    Yes, you may have missed that non-existent celebration…

    thalia added,
    CarolynS @Carolyn_nth
    Did I miss the street parades when Black Ferns won the women’s RWC 4 times?
    6 retweets 11 likes”

    And a Progressive mangina adds his status signaling 10cents worth:

    “Duncan Stuart ‏@duncan_stuart 12h12 hours ago

    @Carolyn_nth @MdmMuch Still waiting for the Lydia Ko national holiday as well.”

    Female sports are second rate, they perform no where near as well as men – just go google the golf stats if you don’t believe me.

    Why do the feminist harpies believe men should be forced to watch lesbians chasing each other across the rugby field?

    Things just don’t seem to be able to go ‘right’ for poor young Jeb. The old Bush family advisors ,that still seem to be the advisors, really must be getting old. I was kind of assuming, when all said and done with the Trump circus, Rubio et all, that eventually Bush would come through. I’m not quite as sure now.
