    Not another thread MSE - please!

    This has already been discussed on one of the several threads already started.

    The MSE WASPI love-in continues. ;)

    Well it is their site!!

    To say they should not be able to report would in effect be akin to attempted censorship! It is for everyone, those who agree, those who don't.

    I didn't say not to report it. I said it would be better adding to an existing thread as we are all expected to do.

    Here we go again! Another embarassing story about how so many women born in the 1950s hadn't realised during the last 20 years (since at least 1995) that their SPA has changed. How many of those are stupid and how many greedy & are looking for compensation?

    For clarification, I do agree that the 2011 changes happened too quickly but that always seems to get sidelined, maybe because it affects men too.

    For the record neither of the changes affect me, so I suppose WASPI will expect me to butt out.

    It does feel like that - they are succeeding with me too!

    Is that similar to the WASPI censorship where every reasoned and civil argument is deleted? :D

    Their site is a campaign site, unlike this one - and their site also, so their rules.

    !

    Another embarassing story? Well, I don't think so.

    As for compensation. Well if it were to be paid (which I very much doubt), I do hope that all those who are making such negative comments will donate their booty to charity. Yes, and elephants might fly :)

    Good luck to all the ladies involved, and rest assured that there are many of us who neither consider you stupid or greedy!
