@Tom2: the above tag means that I'm writing as a frontpager, just to make sure the discussion is going on. My personal opinions will be expressed elsewhere.
Remember when I mentioned the ET Editorial Guidelines? Just describing how that place works.
Please, go ahead and read the ETiquette page and the ET Editorial Guidelines. Seriously.
Having what you wrote being called upon is not bullying. Whatever opinion you express here is absolutely fair game; this works for everybody. Thanks you all.
Deswegen ij would like you to practice some yoga, in which you bend forward at the waist as far and as relaxed as possible. Then to stretch, please grab your knees from the back side, and move your lower torso as far as you can between them, and breathe deeply.
Now it's time to bring your head and neck forward curling and up, until you can almost touch or smell your ass. In yoga, you are never invited to stick your head up there.
Not only ass yoga awaits you, but the ability to once again read the User Guide and be so kind as to follow it when making links, and many other internet type of things. Ass Uming you wish to be taken seriously here.

I know a troll when I smell one. I don't do censorship, but have spent many a happy hour hunting trolls in order to keep a forum going in confidence and good faith.
Prove me wrong : post something interesting.
It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue

or google "rfi débat africain" (highly recommended weekly programme)
The summary ends with:
"So the Chancellor is likely to be under further pressure to put the economy on a semi wartime setting on 23 March."
Before a footnote on the fall in consumption during WWII.
Here's the 8th of March summary of the CEBR report and the CEBR report itself "Cost to the UK Economy
of the Russian Invasion of Ukraine - a scenario analysis. A Cebr report, March 2022" (PDF 338 KB).
A lot of people have expended a lot of time and energy trying to keep this site going as a space for informed, evidenced based and courteous debate. Those few of us that remain generally only have limited time to devote to the site
You come along "to put some links on you website" without regard to our user guidelines and expect people to be interested and claim to be being subjected to censorship when asked to abide by the guidelines.
The fact is we are all constrained by time and have to focus on a few areas of interest. We ask that you don't splash raw links about the place and expect them to be followed and read.
Generally, if you have a point to make, it is best to do so directly yourself. Occasionally you may want to buttress your argument by quoting a few paragraphs from another story which is generally done in a blockquote. If you do want people to follow a link you should embed it in text which makes it clear what the link is about. However your comment/story should stand on its own two feet without requiring anyone to follow a link unless they want to dig deeper into whatever argument you are making.
If people disagree with your comment or want further clarity they may ask you to evidence it. This is NOT evidence of a cancel culture or censorship here; simply that people are entitled to disagree or ask you to justify the point you are making.
Thanks in advance...
