    Re: Govt. launches 'Your Freedom' - could it help?

    If deleted, it could be due to the mentioning of Mount pleasant in the suggestion, maybe that is breaking the 'civil service code'

    or.......or perhaps Chris have exposed a top secret government operation to disarm the UK population ...............

    Re: Govt. launches 'Your Freedom' - could it help?

    Haha, yeah well I haven't had any reply from them ... maybe they didn't like me making 2 knife-related suggestions and an admin thought that the second was a duplicate?

    Would anyone else like to try posting the second one? I think I took the text in this thread and adjusted it a bit before submitting but I can't remember exactly how it went.

    It ain't top secret, it's been going on for years. 8-)
    Don't worry about avoiding temptation, as you get older, it'll avoid you.

    Re: Govt. launches 'Your Freedom' - could it help?

    I've just received a reply from the admins at YourFreedom:
    Your idea was similar to one that had already been submitted on the site. You can continue your voting and discussion here:
    http://yourfreedom.hmg.gov.uk/repeal...gravity-knives
    I have just replied, asking them to put my idea back:
    Many thanks for getting back to me on that missing idea ... I'd like to make some follow-up comments, if I may:

    1. Could your system inform the poster of an idea when it has been deleted and why? This would reduce confusion because I was worried that I had somehow broken a site rule or there had been some kind of technical glitch ... I had no idea that you had deleted it because you thought it was duplicated.

    2. I would beg to disagree with your main assumption - my idea was far more measured and did not go as far as the one you left behind. The poster of that idea is aiming to over-turn huge swathes of the UK knife legislation but I was putting forward a much softer approach, just tackling one of the most unjust parts. By deleting my idea you have left behind only an idea that even I would not support because it
    is impractical, has absolutely no chance of being adopted and is not well presented.

    Could you please put back my idea and any votes/comments that have already been submitted to it?
    We'll see what they say to that

    Chris, you said this:

    Which is exactly why they have deleted your idea and kept the other.



    This so called consultation has to be a success, so nothing vaguely controversial can be allowed to gather support from reasonable people. Anything worrying for Our Masters will be presented as suggestions from scary nutters, or removed.

    Re: Govt. launches 'Your Freedom' - could it help?

    I've had a reply from them as well, asking me to vote for the 'switch blade & gravity knives' instead
    the bloody cheek of it

    And now, instead of insufficient privilege the site state the page does not exist anymore.

    Chris, if I were you I'd re post your proposal.

    Well, I would but I'd rather they bring back the one with the votes & comments on it ... and also I think that if I post it a second time they will just pull it again and could very well pull my account too ... so we'll see how my second complaint sits with them

    I'm getting giddy at the thought of the big society, always been a fan of the co-op.
