No. You do realise there's a link to the FUA you already signed at the top of the page?

Two things.

1 - you're merely expressing the opinion of being opposed to mass immigration. You're not actually opposing it.
2 - There is no reason for you to be banned for expressing that opinion. How you express it and how you conduct yourself in discussion with others, is what might get you into bother. As long as you focus on attacking the argument, rather than the person making the argument you''ll be fine.

Here is quick "how to" guide.

The idea of allowing mass immigration to the UK is deeply and profoundly stupid. - This is fine to say!

You are profoundly stupid for supporting the idea of mass immigration to the UK. - This is the wrong thing to say.

*edit*

As Thomas said, you should read the FUA that you agreed to when you registered to become a member of these forums.

Also, what's with the "new look."

We don't know what your old look was, so how would we know that this "look" is new?

New avatar to go along with new look.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Excalibur did everything to make it obvious that he was a sock puppet, starting with the title of this thread.

I suspect most people on this forum haven't; but you can imagine what I mean.

It's amusing if you like rom-coms.

And even though pretty much everyone suspected sock puppetry from the outset, we still treated them with far more respect and tolerance than they treated us.

Which seems to be how it goes round here.
