Until recently the Chatterbox had run for nearly three years without any problems but it is now being used to post material which some readers are finding offensive.
The posts derive from a very small proportion of our guests who fail to sign their postings. They have upset many of the regular and new readers.
Although the Hawkinge Gazette has a policy which covers libellous, threatening and illegal postings we have up to now not had to address the problem which is now manifesting itself.
In view of this, we are asking all readers to please use the Chatterbox, in a considerate manner.
Any offensive postings will now be removed.
The Hawkinge Gazette is not a business and any money we receive for advertising merely helps to pay for a small proportion of the running costs of the site.
Without you advertisers would not advertise and without these advertisers we would either have to reduce our content or close the site.
If you have any comments to make please let us know
