I've seen a few racist comments here recently and I've been in contact with those I consider have pushed things a little too far.

I have met many people on this site, people from many backgrounds, beliefs and race. One of my best mates is a regular and well respected contributor who has Maori heritage. 

I have friends of many races and backgrounds. I have friends here who are kiwi as but they aren't perceived that way.

I really do have an intense dislike of racists.

Sometimes we say things that we don't really mean but here's a thing. I will not tolerate racism. 

I don't want to hand out bans or suspensions but I will if I have to. Force my hand if you wish, we will be better off without you.

SmileThanks for your kind letter smudge, RE Racist.  I have sent you a reply. 
I am not shy of replying to your post on here , nothing to hide.
Nope you got it wrong with me (DEFINITELY) not one of those.
No Hate speech at all, just factual.
We used to have freedom of speech in New Zealand , alas that also is being eroded.

Enjoy your day . Fishing has been good.Smile

Thanks for your reply Hook It. It's ironic that as a proponent of free speech you answered a post by complaining about the use ofa Maori greeting.

Classic.... My freedom of speech is more important than  yours? Alot like ' Freedom protestors' protesting their freedom, whilst infringing on others Freedom to do so.....  Hook it you gonna complain when somone uses sign language to convey their message?
