just who are the forum police that decide whether a post is on or off topic..... in reality they dont exist....sure some members can moan when someone posts something they dont like ... but their opinion is no more or less valuable than anyone elses.

the forum wouldnt be worth looking at if it was just a couple of posters just banging on about the latest bee in their bonnet for page after page with nobody allowed to voice an alternate or even mildly different  opinion .

I agree ric. If you two go back and look at what was happening, as I suggested, it should be evident what needs to be done and the complaint. I have been here forever, nearly daily and participated with topic drift and relished different points of view. By what was going on, I seriously decided to leave this forum because of this systematic crap. The value was being taken from participating. So, I had to say something, hoping to correct the problem. This has been too important to me to just say nothing and drift away. Look at the thread, then look at the content and the unrelated blather washing away the meaningful discourse.

It should be evident to you. Then, there is passive aggressive response to my complaint.

Perhaps if you just go back and read what you write and what you are responding to like you are another reader, you will see more clearly what I mean. There is discussion, and then there is stream of consciousness like taking the the hands off of the wheel. It is just about being considerate. It is about haphazardly "messing" with people like toys. Bluetrain, I think that you know very well what needs to be done. It is not some fear thing for you. I think you know the difference and you are perfectly capable.  I should say that your coming online here has been often stimulating and useful. You can be straight up, no games. Hopefully, nothing more need be said. We go on.

Is it still OK to post to this thread with something relevant to the original title?

I found this on a British newspaper's site:
https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/shortcuts/2018/jul/04/all-beaches-technically-naturist-beaches-a-guide-to-nude-sunbathing

It's got a journalist's name on it, but it's essentially by Andrew Welch, who's British Naturism's main spokesman. He's saying that naturism is legal everywhere, but he also says going to an established "nude beach" is still a good idea.

"All beaches are technically naturist beaches, but naturists tend to go to specific places where they know they will find others and which are hassle-free. You could go to your local park, naked, and it would be legal but the trouble is, culturally you would probably attract attention."

It's The Guardian. I read the Guardian sometimes here in USA. It is more honest than US media. There is news that gets squelched here found in the Guardian. It isn't owned by US corporate structures. What I'm getting at, is that it is a responsible acclaimed news source read around the world and it just published this.

The BN guy certainly is attempting to damp down the fire a bit, so that it doesn't threaten a flame. This is however good news, as it legitimizes public nudity and gets it more accepted. The word is out and he's telling everyone that there is nothing to fear, be nice. It is an incremental thing toward a goal that can't occur too rapidly. Not everybody is ready for swift change and there are quite a few unjustified fears still out there to create backlash.

Dang, if only those islands had more sunshine.... 8)

Some of us here have been getting out here regularly recently in the unusually good wether, buoyed by the recent publishing of the College of Policing guidelines for dealing with incidents of nudity, basically saying, simple nudity, someone going about their lawful business naked, no offence committed, no further action.

I posted three long reports on BN forum just covering last weekend when I covered about 25 miles in the Lake District fells naked, covering up for brief periods only after seeing people close to, and skinny dipping at two popular river pools after asking if anyone minded. Almost all the encounters were positive.

No doubt others are also pushing thier normal boundaries, being more visible and gaining more public acceptance. The only concern is that some individuals do not abuse their right to be naked due to the publicity into confrontational situations, which may or may not be legal, but could result in public backlash. Hence the care expressed by Andrew Welch.

Meanwhile, I have never had such a good tan. Shame I  ???slipped down a crack in some saltmarsh on Tuesday and twisted my knee. It will curtail my activities a little for a while.
Tread lightly upon the earth!

Ouch! Gotta backyard and a lounger?

While you are laid up, could you cut and paste those trip reports in the trip report section?...all ya all, how's about some trip reports? I still can't imagine walking with no fear, in freedom, my decision, my perceptions, no worries, but for the social ramifications.

What happened? They pop out this ruling and suddenly the sun comes out and its a great time to be naked in it? Like all of the clouds have been lifted on a new day?

The cosmos have spoken,"Go firth and bee naked in the Sun!" ;D 8) ;)
