....and it looks dead in the water. All discussion denied by abuse from some who hate Kernow and others who pretend to love it.

Some talk. Some get on wth it.

The curse of Facebook, a place where you can preach to the converted and not have to defend your opinions. The abuse bit is just an aspect of the anonymity that the internet can provide, it gives people the opportunity to say things they wouldn't have the guts to say to someones face, and think it's an expression of their right to "free speech".

Very well said Paddy. Guts is in very short supply these days. And this Nanny State that we live in, is increasing it by the day.

It's a great shame, but it does seem dead now. I used to post under The Magic Robot name but had to change because I could no longer log in for some reason. It's hard to strike a balance between a wide open forum which allows trolls to flourish and slaughtering genuine contributers who may go against the grain.

It does seem a shame - although I hadn't visited in years myself as I had a fairly specific family interest. Bit of a Cornish Marie Celeste; quite eerie!
