If so (FWIW I think it is), does it represent British society, or is it skewed in some way towards a more conservative political ideology, especially towards crime, immigration and welfare provision.

 

Discuss.

Another controversial thread designed by a mod or former mod . As if you hadn't got enough on your hands ! Does advertising revenue increase on big threads as it diverts this way and that , all kinds of ads popping up top and bottom on my screen , or am I just a silly old sceptic ?

I'd say there's a reasonable balance actually

What a strange response to have, and to be honest the ads showing on mine are for clothes shopping and Singapore, the same ones show on all the threads I am browsing, so by Dom starting a new thread it isn't making me want to click on them anymore, sorry.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Have to agree here.

I don't have any first hand experience of British society so I can't comment from that perspective but I think the forum is fairly balanced - which is good.

Nor me.

 

I'm more of a central defender but heaven forbid that you ask someone why they are leaving a particular country.

Ya lost me.

He reckons he's proved we're all right wingers, which may be true if you're looking at it from the point of the loony left :biggrin::wink:

Britain and Australia are both capitalist democracies and most of us are middle class Tories, so, apart from the odd pinko, still seething over the collapse of the USSR and its satellites. PIO is bound to be somewhat right wing!

Not strange at all . Another potentially flammable thread . I'm sure you posted the others in complete innocence , but with hindsight perhaps you can see there was potential there ?? Not so much clicking on advertising as key word recognition . I had advert for converting to Islam yesterday . Does revenue not come through these channels ? Serious question as I was approached by company that creates company websites that earn money on views .

So are you saying we all have to watch what we post now? Yes you do get paid per click and on most of the forums we own this is less than $5 per week, so don't worry about me, I'm not going to become an instant millionaire overnight just because there are a few threads which MAY have potentional. Also you will find its not always done on keywords but on your browsing history.

Anyway let's get back on topic shall we.

Bugger ... I thought you were going to leave me money in your will. FWIW i've never seen an advert for Islam (or other religion) pop up. The current one is for WSPA ... and showing a donkey .. but I can't see were they've been mentioned


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

I support the Jackinabox movement and his immediate entourage only. What does that make me?

 

I dont do politics and if i did it would have been Screaming Lord Such, but as Paul Weller said, "buying a loaf of bread is politics".

 

Left wing/right wing bollox is too Americanised for me and I wouldnt know what either was anyway.

Sorry to disappoint, I think Rob stood by me because he thought I may have a hidden stash :laugh:

I feel a little left out.

 

All I get is removals, flights and bupa.......and I dont click on any, sorry.

 

Perhaps i'm not right wing enough......whatever that actually means.

I'm a socialist so I suspect people will call me left wing.
