The Weasle Anti-Discrimination League, in association with the Ferret Council, has made the following request:

All threads mentioning squirrels must also mention other rodents, particularly carnivorous which must be allocated free posting time during election campaigns. Under section 79a of the FoWI Act, 1983, the fforum may detemine subject to the act, to what extent and in what manner it will display the rodent matter.

The following guidelines have been noted to have been contravened.


Rodent posting must not fall under the control of individuals, or organised pressure groups, who are influential either because of their wealth or because of their special position re.cuteness, fluffy-tailedness;

the right to hear alternative woodland critter policies and points of view is inherent in the concepts of objective posting and impartiality, which are part of the Fforumite's statutory duty; and

The current reigning rodent and the official predator/prey in an outgoing discussion are granted equal time by the Fforum for election broadcasts within the relevant jurisdiction during discussions being conducted for those animals. When the predator/prey are in coalition, either as a action group or as the official cuteness opposition, the Fforum will provide an equal allocation of time to the Fluffy and to the official un-fluffy, leaving it to the parties which are in coalition to divide the time between them as they see fit.

Subject to eligibility, as detailed below, other parties may also qualify for the grant of free time.


The Weasle Anti-Discrimination League, in association with the Ferret Council, requests that this be rectified, or else further action may be taken.
