The folks in the last village in Wales are prevented from discovering the snitcher in their midst as I am gagged

I recounted earlier how someone in this village near Wrexham, Holt, had snitched on me to the local council, an act of pure malice as what I was doing in creating an amazing restoration of a derelict farm, was not in ahy way wrong or in breach of any rules. I thought I’d put a link up on the village facebook group so that others might ponder such petty silliness and how it is not a great reflection on the way some in Wales treat, what they term, newcomers.  

It did not take long. This website is free to access. I gain almost zero income from it. In any one month I make less from this website than I do from my commercial writings in a couple of hours. I write here for my pleasure alone. Do the guardians of Holt really think I post a link on the village facebook site in order to make money?

But the administrators have decided that putting a link up to the article is a breach of their terms as it is advertising. I have posted a couple of links in the past with no problem. And thus I put it to the administrators of the Holt facebook page, who I expect to boot me off at any moment, that the real reason you have gagged me is that you are either ashamed at the act of the snitcher or that you secretly agree with the snitcher.

Either way you’d rather not see that snitching coming to light. It is your call. I am sure that non snitching folks in snitching central Holt are better off not considering the actions of their fellow citizens, the snitchers.
