I’m not emotional about it. I've been moderated for less (including describing the Morse Code! Weird? Surreal? You choose) ‘Friday Finger Syndrome’, the need to delete something before the weekend!

Believe me you're right - it is a made up place. Lot of lizard-like people there as well. I'm just soo glad that I have an allotment to escape to for the next few weeks!

So I am at a loss why someone believes either of us needs to be nanny’d. I used to read his chum Eddie’s column in the Goudian in days gone by … thought it contained very similar stuff. Still, as all humour is cruel, I will apologise for any offence.I thought that it was perfectly within the tone of this, slightly irreverent, blog, and as it is still up, I guess the moderator and complainant think so too, didn’t they?

I'll stick with similarly sensible viewing/listening this time.

In most walks of life it might be considered humour … which, I accept, is of course relative.If you watch closely it might appear briefly but you’ll have to be quick!Bloggers … Ready?Moderator … Ready?
