Ha! Not a crocodile, one of those ugly plastic clog things. With the buckle.
Crocodiles scare the bejesus out of me, plus they can move like greased lightning

"Large crocodiles can run between 15 to 22 mph (24-35 km/h). These fast crocodiles include Nile, saltwater and American crocodiles – some of the largest species on the planet."

I'm a crocodile influencer.

:laugh: Was just going to post that I was sure that's what you meant. I'll eat my shoe was a common phrase, which likely makes us relatively close in age, except you seem to be more up to date on footwear.

I find it interesting the OP checked in but no comment. What is the point of starting a thread just to ignore it?

True - nanita isn't much for posting a whole lot. But to address the post:
nanita wrote:I am concerned about the integrity of the board, especially in regards to the politicized and polarizing topic of the coronavirus pandemic, the vaccines, the lockdowns, the masks and other measures that governments have taken globally.
It has come to my attention that there may be posters who are being paid to espouse a particular viewpoint, in an attempt to influence and bend public opinion.
May I ask if there are any measures in place to prevent this? May I ask why posters (like myself) who bring this concern forward are being silenced?
What exact concerns does the OP have with the integrity of the board? So far posters have made 20,532 posts to the Coronavirus forum and 172,920 in the Bickering Coronavirus forum. I'd say there have been many posters contributing various opinions.
It was already asked how the OP learned of the possibility of posters being paid - no answer but so far there is no indication anyone is being paid. We know the moderators aren't (thankless job but thank you!!). Not sure what measures could be put in place to stop anyone from posting if they are being paid by those against covid measures or for covid measures. The investigative work for everyone joining Castanet would be unsurmountable - think of all those that just use the classifieds.
I haven't seen anyone being silenced unless they've overstepped and broke a rule. The moderators are pretty clear what the rules are and why a post is removed.

I think that's it for my response.
