Hey everyone. I got some time to do the latest update to the board software, but it meant that all the old modifications and styles wouldn't work anymore. So, here you have the newest iteration of LabourTalk. Please let me know by Private Message if you run into any issues with the new styling. Some new features on the board are:

  • Latest HTML5 Responsive Styling - You can now see a new, more modern styling on the board. Along with this, you can resize the browser to see the board change with it. The board is now functional on all sizes of screens, including your cell phone, table and desktop/laptop.
  • Post Sharing - Although you could previously, the new layout means the sharing icons are more visible on the lower right hand corner of each post. Click your favourite social media outlet to share the desired post with them.
  • Multiple Themes - Previously there was only one theme in an attempt to lower the workload when modifications were put in place. Fortunately, the new modification system is much simpler to implement and we now have multiple colour options for you to enjoy. You can change these from your User Control Panel under the Board Settings heading.
  • Announcements - Announcements can now be posted here (where you're seeing this one) and, in most cases, can be dismissed. To dismiss them, please click the "X" in the top right corner of this box.
  • Collapsing Categories - Categories, such as News & Announcements or Welcome (below), can be collapsed to clear up some of the clutter. This state should be maintained as long as you're logged in.

We hope you like the changes!

Have heard rumours that Hobbs may not be asked to return to work....can anyone confirm or deny this?

If he has not broken any laws or the Telus code of ethics then I cannot see how they would keep him away.

I still see it as a freedom of speech issue though, which is why i'm curious. many, many of us have talked trash online, especially during this dispute.

Saying inflammatory remarks on a web page is one thing. If he has performed the same way on teh picket line and had himself videotaped that would be something different.

When I say inflammatory, I mean threatening people with personal violence.

Then someone needs to bring charges against him and have him convicted through the due process of the law.

He threatens people physically on almost every post over on VFC, so I'd say that's a big YES.

He threatened someone with a private message about a gun. (Can't recall in what context it was)

Process of due law? Excuse me, If I were to go threaten a co-worker by saying "Don't make me bring a gun over" Do you think any employer wouldn't fire you first?

That's hilarious logic there buddy..

For the record, Hobbs is multiple dumba**es. Four people using one account.

The original Hobbs is definately male, and his identity is known. I believe they call him the "angry Hobbs" now.
