Open Forum – Saturday

18 November 2017


This post is open to anyone to comment on any topic that isn’t spam, illegal or offensive. All Your NZ posts are open but this one is for you to raise topics that interest you. 

If providing opinions on or summaries of other information also provide a link to that information. Bloggers are welcome to summarise and link to their posts.

Comments worth more exposure may be repeated as posts.Comments from other forums can be repeated here, cut and paste is fine.

Your NZ is a mostly political and social issues blog but not limited to that, and views from anywhere on the political spectrum are welcome. Some ground rules:

  • If possible support arguments, news, points or opinions with links to sources and facts.
  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria.

Free speech is an important principle here but some people who might pose a risk to the site will have to keep going through moderation due to abuses by a small number of malicious people.

    Is the first Saturday Open Forum that’s ever been completely empty?
    I was too busy to post here Saturday. Now I feel like it’s my fault. 😦

      Well it could be? Yaw Fault. Stew on it and then Eat it up.
      Every one was just to busy on the political posts or
      slagging off kelvin or You or that nice girl Jacinder.
      I learn a lot from the varied opinions = a view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. Hahaha yea right!
      opine = hold and state as one’s opinion.
