Time to remove the poppy, GR?

I'm not sure what the rules are re; the display of the poppy on a website but I know that here in Canada protocol says that the poppy that we wear on our lapel should be removed at sunset on Nov. 11th.

I feel that the display of the poppy here after sunset on Nov. 16th. is rather disrespectful.

It's gone - fairly recently I think. :-)

Odd they can do that, yet not deal with the rr's!

Not really,it should be possible to remove the poppy by a simple input. Putting it there is a little more involved. However processing reported posts is much more difficult especially where controversial topics are involved.

It is no wonder they often take the easy option of removing a thread completely and omit the nicities of emailing the offenders.
