  1. Big thumbs up, Fiona. I believe it to be the case, that folk who get mean under the umbrella of anonymity which the Internet offers, are not happy/well people and need help. But, until they realise that – constant vigilance!
    You present a real mixture, not only of views, but of topics of interest, too, which is a very good thing, but there is no place in life, or on the Internet, for nastiness or getting personal.
    Sometimes, I’d like to, but I don’t – except in the privacy of my own home!
