Well the BBC are shutting the message boards, and nobody not even the Prime Minister or Government can stop them <yikes>

I asked for a petition on the Downing Street e-petition site and received this answer.

I'm sorry to inform you that your petition has been rejected.

Your petition was classed as being in the following categories: * Outside the remit or powers of the Prime Minister and Government"

Well the BBC has more power then than I thought.

Well lets face it, this MB is soft and pointless nothing of any importance is printed. Footbal dominates it and if you raise anything that might rock the boat then it's disallowed.

I can find lots more sites to discuss important things.

And, It is me, before I disagree with you, please define "important to discuss".
Do you mean matters that nobody on these boards has any control over, for example?
Keep smiling

Important= things that affect everybody.

Not football or general chit chat.e.g hello pom how are you today. These are minority subjects.

But I suppose it's safe for the BBC to only allow small time chit chat. Don't rock the boat.
