Hmmmm I think we would get arrested Alan and the general public especially the lycra wearing bike pedalling cafe latte types would be in tears!

 :-D

On what charge ?
A bunch of brigades just happened to go for a training drive which found
themselves in the city at around the same time. Everyone wearing seatbelts,
obeying road rules, etc, etc.
They might stop to compare vehicles with colleagues & do a quick truck check
(including a siren test)?
They might do a couple of laps of Vicky Sq - you just never know when you
might have to do a COQ to station 20.

And everyone knows that our baggy daggy yellows are a much more better chick-
magnet than lycra, especially we more generously proportioned older members.
 :-D

SAFF needs a "Likes" Button just like Facebook.

I'm not sure if that will be useful, because it's a voting system which hides unpopular posts - it's not just a like/dislike button...

Sounds like a waste of time to me... if anything perhaps one of the 'karma' type systems for users rather than individual posts.

err no, If you like a post reply and tell us all why, hence supporting the good points it makes. And if you dislike it tell us why and make genuine objections

Agree with you bittenyakka. There is not enough good ol' debate, and a lot of statements made without sufficient evidence. A rating system removing posts that aren't agreed on would probably cause more of the unclassy type of argument.
