Dear Ab Ed. Why do you continually allow certain users of AB to get away with ageist comments and insults?
Amongst these lately,. have been things like 'old people shouldn't be allowed in supermarkets', 'old people shouldn't be allowed to drive', 'have you taken your Complan yet?', 'I bet you smell of wee' etc.
You wouldn't allow any user to make comments about race or skin colour because you would say that was racism.
So why do you allow ageism?
Your thoughts, Ed?

Unfortunately, we have not yet figured out how to transport ourselves to people's homes or places of work to keep them from writing rubbish.
I have not reviewed any post recently that pokes fun at old people - I suggest you report them so they come to our attention, otherwise, they will remain on the site.
And of course we do not condone ageist comments - we are the home of the BiddyBankers after all! Though I've heard rumours they are all actually 18 with a strange penchant for vintage lingerie.
