I love you The Local because everybody hates you.

In response to this post....Coop caught selling old meat as new

I would like to say, that The Local doesn't bother me.

Re: I love you The Local because everybody hates you.

What don't you start a poll to find out who loves the local?

My money is on the haters

Re: I love you The Local because everybody hates you.

But you can not love The Local, but still quite like it. Or you can outright hate it. Can we have a 'do you hate it?' button?

Re: I love you The Local because everybody hates you.

I voted "no"....not because I dislike having headlines delivered to me that might be relevant, but it COULD be good, and it isn't.....its "lowest common denominator" journalism only to attract you to the site to bump the visitor numbers. Its just a bit lazy

Re: I love you The Local because everybody hates you.

The English Forum managed perfectly well with human contributions for its first five years of existence, and has no need of a mindless robot linking us to poorly written, sensationalist and frequently inaccurate articles written by people who clearly spend too much time reading the 20 Minuten and Blick am Abend on the trains to and from work every day...

I vote 'scaphism for the Local'.

Well, I see it as an added service to this free site...not that it does post things that are truly relevant..but it gives us the opportunity, to discuss news topics without someone having to start a thread on it.

The Daily Mail.

It's like the Local, but literate.

You represent the Euro mindset to the fullest. The "it worked just fine..so why change it" attitude is precisely the reason why this continent is heading down the drain. Change isn't always bad.
Although, I don't recall ever having posted on one of The Local's thread, I view it as an added benefit to this site.
