Whaleoil general debate

Good morning, welcome to our daily Whaleoil General Debate.

Our evening General debate is called Backchat and will start at 6 pm

On General debate, you are encouraged as a commenter to share your own stories, discuss other news, bring NEW news, catch up with friends or make new friends with other commenters.

To participate you’ll need to sign up for a Disqus account which is free, quick, and easy. All you need is an email address to register a username that suits you.

On posts that are not articles such as this one, you do not have to stay ‘on topic’ but you do still need to follow our commenting rules. 

Please read our rules before you start commenting on Whaleoil to avoid a temporary or permanent ban.

NOTE: Moderation queries MUST be expressed VIA EMAIL and not by posting a comment. To check if your ban might have been caused by Disqus, or to ask for a banning decision to be reviewed, email the voluntary HELP DESK [email protected] with your Disqus username in the subject line. Please be respectful and do not make demands.

General layabout. I’m also a Whaleoil proofreader and set up the daily backchat and general debate.

Daily roundup

Just a brief note to those readers who like to add their own contributions to Daily roundup in the comments. PLEASE remember that politically incorrect and offensive (but funny) jokes are only to be enjoyed on Mondays in the Comedy corner post which is specifically for that kind of humour. Do not post that kind of humour here.
