Social media – Saturday

9 April 2016

Social Media 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.

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

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).

    Having spent my formative years at St Mary’s boarding school, we were taught ‘Adam and Eve were created genetically pure’

    For the life of me, I can’t imagine what Leviticus would have had to said about this disgusting act…… 👿

      There was a brief discussion of this situation here the other day. I was raised a Catholic as well but eventually I escaped. Feel sorry for the ex-wife but who knows what the marriage was like and it’s none of my business anyway.

        Or as Lot said, “Don’t knock it till you try it”

        Yes there’s a 40-50% chance of defects with a son-mother relationship so I don’t advocate it but I’m assuming it’s possible to test for defects and abort if necessary. I know it’s a difficult issue and this is the main reason.
