Thanks for the heads up, Den.
It's true, it will be impossible to regulate, as it is here, but hopefully the exercise will prove worthwhile anyway.

Steve S, Keven doesn't have a ward on the IOW he doesn't even live here, so this is a prime example of how easy it will be for people on facebook to talk as if they are from the Island when they are not. as stated by other scribe.
