I am sailing very close to the wind, and it may be that this attempt will put me beyond the pale, and I will be excommunicated and henceforth have no further allowance to contribute to these pages. Jim, you can relax, you are not currently in any danger of excommunication. I for one am glad to have...

Jim, My reference was to the people getting most excited in the thread in question - they are all, or purport to be, adults and capable of withstanding such slings and arrows without serious injury, I wold hope. Nothing on the thread was unsuitable for viewing by any passing children, and it will re...

Where inappropriate language has been used, I have taken action. This thread (and indeed the entire topic of independence) has become heated, but that is the nature of debate. We are all grown-ups here, a little light abuse (particularly when the abusee has not registered any complaint) does not mer...

Herby, how can you possibly justify being the only one on here who isn't out there in the open? Sorry, Mona, it was a condition of my continuing as moderator. I need to moderate fairly and impartially. If I do so under my own name, there is a danger that I will moderate my friends more lightly to a...

After today's decision about anonymity being henceforth banned on this site, may it rest in peace. Another bad decision but good for Nick's future health. I'm in two minds. Possibly three. To some extent anonymity stimulates debate - people are less shy coming forward. On the other hand using real ...

According to this map http://www.digitalscotland.org/media/16420/HIE-NGA-Deployment-2013-10-25.pdf Seil is due to get fibre-optic broadband at the back end of this year. I would be pleasantly surprised if it happens that quickly. The BT site is rather more cagey, merely telling us we will get it &qu...

Over half the shares (53% in 2010) in British companies are in foreign ownership, there are precious few "British" firms which are not subsidiaries of foreign concerns. Sorry Herby but it may be becoming clearer that you may not have in depth knowledge on this subject so, to make things c...

The truth is it's sad and economically damaging to have this situation. The Laphroig announcement this morning only serves to remind us that we are an economic colony of the multinationals and, as such, much of the profits made by iScotland's two largest (c45% of GNP) industries will not be kept in...

Herby, please don't get personal and assume things which I have never expressed. Just because I have posted that the debt markets have less faith in iScotland's creditworthiness than they do in rUK does in no way mean that "I have very little faith in your[my] countrymen". I guess you are...

They wanted certainty that if they lend money to the UK, and Scotland then separated, it would be the rUK which took responsibility for that debt and not iScotland. Not strictly true. Creditors merely want certainty over exactly who will be responsible for paying back the debt. Without this stateme...

Longshanks seems to be the only one to see this as "humiliating". This announcement has nothing whatsoever to do with any uncertainty as to Scotland's ability to service her debts. It is an entirely pragmatic act by the UK Treasury. The UK govt. has steadfastly refused to discuss what woul...

So, nobody has added anything to this cosy little group of YES campaigners - of which this forum seems to be almost entirely composed of. This is a great pity as it gives a distorted view of the residents hereabouts. But maybe this is a deliberate attempt by the Yes campaign to so overload the medi...

Not sure that a ban is appropriate here. Jimcee was not the one responsible for the outrageous slur of suggesting I was you in the past, and it is possible he did not read that thread. I would give him the benefit of the doubt this time, but let me reiterate for all posters: Nick and I are two very ...

Not this moderator, who has formed no such opinion. You are confusing me with Nickb.

Kindly move this thread to the What's On section of our forum, where it belongs. Thankyou. From the forum rules: Decisions on what is acceptable or unacceptable rest solely with the people who manage the forum. I interpret that to mean that decisions on whether threads should be moved also rest sol...

Threads which the board Admin think are sufficiently important can be made "sticky", which means they remain at he top of the thread list and don't drift down into obscurity. This thread is likely to remain relevant for some time even if there is no activity so I imagine it will stay stick...

No it does not. You know very well what you are doing and it is disingenuous of you to suggest otherwise. It is all rather childish to be frank. I would have thought it beneath you, but obviously I have misjudged you.

Don't do it again, there's a good chap.
