Giving to Charity

  The Brigadier 08:32 06 Oct 2007

I've decided this Christmas to ask my close relations to give to charity instead of buying me something.
But with so many charites outtheir it is hard to decide which one.

Was their one last year that was buying goats etc?

charity-related threads, for obvious reasons.

in case anyone's not sure, is that if we allow individual charities to be promoted via the forum we are rapidly swamped by charity appeal threads - it's happened before, and we received many complaints.

Regardless of how innocent threads like this one might seem they inevitably end up attracting posts which invite people to contribute to this or that good cause. They may all be good causes, but we don't want forum members to be approached in this fashion - there's a subtle pressure in it.

that The Brigadier has contacted me to express his understanding of the reasons behind our lock. We've decided to leave the thread online (but locked), so others can see what we've done, and why.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
