Freo's View


Posted in city of fremantle, community, fremantle, politics, western autralia by freoview on September 13, 2016

I have had a change of heart as I miss the community debate and the banter on Freo’s View, so will from today on allow comments on this blog again.

I hope my message is clear though that I will only publish comments that are on topic, respectful and concise. I will not publish comments that contain personal disrespectful attacks on anyone, no matter if I agree or disagree with what you write.

I will also not publish comments if they have a long list of grievances with Fremantle Council but have nothing to do with the topic of discussion.

I very much value good comments that try to make a positive difference, new ideas, solutions, etc, but all the communists, lefties, greenies, etc. accusations have no place on FV.

Looking forward to receiving your great comments that will trigger in-depth debate about topics that really matter to Fremantle.

Thank you to everyone who sent me an email on the weekend supporting Freo’s View and telling me how valuable you believe this blog is for Fremantle!

    It is not censorship to ask for respectful comments, James. Letters to the Editors of newspapers go through scrutiny and are often edited. I have never done that, but some people believe internet media will just about post all the nasty bile and that is not going to happen. If that is censorship to you, so be it, but I call it self regulation of the people who want to make comments on Freo’s View. Keep it to topic, respectful and I’ll publish it, no matter if I agree with the comments or not, as I have done for seven years now.

    Quite honestly Rowl I never thought I’d see the day when you argued in favour of censorship. The reason that so many people are disparaging of the happenings in Fremantle is that they are fed up. Fed up with dead behind closed doors for mates, fed up with infill ruining their private property, fed up with a lack of consultation from their elected representatives, and fed up with a council that continually tries to impose socialist values on its citizens. I doubt my comments will find much favour under your new rules but as a ratepayer and citizen of Fremantle I have the right to make them. Just not in your forum anymore by the look of it, so I wish you well with your endeavours and as they say in the Dragons Den, I’m out.
