Likewise tilly, i shall not bother anymore.This joke page had 203,717 views so some folks must have liked it. how many other subjects can boast this ?. Any road up i'm off with great regret. i really have enjoyed it.

You only have to look at last posts on the main forum subjects to realise this site is dead.

Do you remember the Pink Floyd video when Another Brick in the Wall was released?
All the kids went into a mincer which churned out homogenised identikit pupils.
That is how the world feels to me these days.
Every controversial subject has a received opinion which is deemed to be the correct one. If you deviate from this,you can immediately sense the atmosphere.All humour and personal opinions are being squeezed into ever narrower confines in order not to "offend".
I find it very sad. George Orwell was spot on,he just got the date wrong.

Some of the members that think this is not such a good idea; range from 2010, 2011, 2012 since they joined and i myself have only joined 2016. would it not have been an idea to get some opinion from members for and against and the reason.
I do realise that a small number of members were against this from the start and now it seems they have got their way.

I have always enjoyed reading the jokes page. I'm definitely no prude or snowflake but I do think occasionally some of the jokes went too far for a site that is visited by children. I would have preferred to see the offending jokes removed rather than the jokes page.

I think children know more at an early age than what we used to do.

This is all to do with the snowflakes.

I know ive not posted much since joining but wont be anymore.

Hello Snowman, Thank you for your post, if tilly is o'k with this i for one would be very pleased to stay though i now live away from Leeds and without being slushy this site is such a big part of my life. Born and bred in "Stringer" since 1935.
I would be very pleased if the moderators would reinstate the joke page. Ta.

Ex Gipton estate child when it was first built and then a Beeston lad. If i could turn back the clock i would not change a thing.

Hello tilly, the site was "Up the creek" for quite some time from early morning through no fault of Secret Leeds. I too was trying for ages but to of no avail
Cheers Pal.I have received a message from a moderator but being a dummy at sending replies i wonder if you could send a message back on my behalf assuming it is the same
mine was the "Scarboro Warning" and all though i don't really think i deserved it. the Secret Leeds site means so much to me. In a nut shell pal lets get back to where we were. Regards V. J.
