Thanks for the advice Kevin...chat box has been moved to top of page.
The purpose of this is to promote communication and debate amongst the regular visitors to this site.
As I will have no way of controlling what people say on this chat box, I would simply like to ask everyone to be respectful of each other and of different opinions.
If I find that too much flaming has been going on, I will have to remove the chat box...so please play nice!
P.S. - This chat box is not what I'd call state-of-the-art. You will have to click on 'refresh' to see other people's posts.
If anyone can suggest a better one, I'd be very interested in checking it out.
