Re: CH fundraising - a bit of a rant

I hope this isn't too off-topic, but I've felt for many years that if CH were absolutely true to its original mission with a one-world, non-UK-centric view, then it would actually be shutting-up-shop in the UK, and using the funds and investments to repeat it's original 1552 mission of taking childr...

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

Following conversations between the mods, we've agreed to leave the posts to stand for now, as the negatives seem to have been answered and the posts speak for themselves. I'd like to encourage respectful dialog and argument across the Forum please - makes our lives easier as moderators, and avoids ...

Re: THANK YOU, JULIAN

Thanks David. Never expected it to still be running, particularly 14 years later (two years before Facebook was open to everyone - and for some reason, I created my first user on here at 00:32 - must have had a few that night!) I'd expected with the advent of MySpace, Facebook, Twitter etc. that it ...

Historical Abuse and related discussions - MOVED to separate section

By request, I've now created a new section called "Historical Abuse and related discussions" and I have moved all the related topics into that section.
If you spot any others, or new ones pop up in here which should be in there, please just drop me a PM and I'll move them over.

New Section

Re: Did anyone know?

Quote from The Guardian (I know, sorry, don't like quoting that!):
