Please go to your preferences page and make sure your "See Mature Topics" setting is set. Setting it to "Yes" means you see the Mature Topics forum (contains political and religious debates). Setting it to "No" means you do not see those threads.
So you're Will, huh? Or Willis? Or perhaps Dave? Only joking, don't want your real name. (Sorry if it is Dave, purely a coincidence I assure you). Anyhoo, hope you enjoy it here. My cousin went to live in Australia for a year and loved it so much that he stayed, nice place is it?
