Probably, if we are honest !!!

Regret is a hard thing to define. There are certainly a few things I'm eternally embarrassed by but without future knowledge I would always have done. I told my niece that you can tell when you're an adult when you do something knee tremblingly embarrassing and manage to shrug it off because you've done something more embarrassing in the past and know that you'll do something worse in the future and at no point does the earth open up and swallow you to protect you from shame. One thing that I seriously do regret was as a result of doing the 'right' thing.

I am all for it, so long as it will give us all a good laugh. I say 'bring it all on'. On the other hand it may become the Hysterical Forum instead. (Tread very carefully with this one).

Hi all, The problem with any topic on our forum is keeping it clean, readable, within the bounds of our forum decency & the general implications of being Coventry related. Some topics start near to the fringe of what is permissible, even without causing hurt or trespassing. Treading lightly, I suppose we could discuss nuclear disarmament. The topic that I'm typing on now is fraught with risk of causing offence, personal beliefs, whether Sunday School related or just our wellbeing. Things that I regret, there are so many. I could possibly incriminate myself. Sharing anything on a website is black & white. It can't be retracted. The genie, once out, won't go back into the bottle. Posts that have been deleted on our website, there's always the possibility that someone out there has recorded it. I love open discussion, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. I don't believe that Pam or I ever had important secrets, or Pam not knowing what was going on in my mind, or me hers. I love science, the word simply meaning knowledge. It doesn't have to be test tubes & Bunsen burners. Yet so much is contrary to my faith belief. I couldn't discuss that in any depth on our forum here, as it crosses so many boundaries & it could cause distress to someone. Some eat meat & some don't. I usually attend a local church coffee & cake morning on Saturdays. Not my own chapel, but a warm greeting is assured. Often, my first line when I enter the building is to ask "Is this the lonely hearts club?”. The warmth is so real anyway. I could have sought permission to start such a topic on here, Lonely hearts, but it's not needed. Most of us get the sense behind a post of how a member is in terms of wellbeing. Well, if that's not enough Friday evening dribble from me, what is?

Philip, great post and I have read it many times and pondered before responding. Having read a lot of topics, there are many that go off on a tangent or morph into general conversation or questions, the questions are then answered and the original topic is left in the past!! There are certainly no reasons why topics cannot be kept clean, readable and decent. I hope all members are able to express themselves without resorting to bad language or derogatory comments. But, I do not see why they cannot be controversial, after all, we all have our own opinions and the right to express them. I don't see why you consider this current topic is risky, they are your beliefs and I am sure that all members respect that. As I have said previously, I was made to go to Sunday School and never really enjoyed it whilst I was there. I do not consider myself to be that religious, but also I do not criticise or comment on people who are. It is their choice. Stick with your faith, Philip and keep posting, I enjoy reading them. ps, think the idea of a "Regrets" post is not needed?

Hi Mick, It's risky simply because it crosses beliefs, but also, me as part of the moderating team, I'm intent on being squeaky clean on whatever I post. Well, I've enjoyed my coffee & cake & back home. I wish you well for whatever you are up to.
