Traveller webchat?

Dear MNHQ,

is there any possibility of getting a representative from the traveller community on for a webchat?

There is a lot of ignorance and casual racism shown (including on this site), which is not helped by Big Fat Gypsy weddings et al.

This is not a thread about a thread, just prompted by a thread before anyone jumps on me for calling them racist

Yours faithfully,

I think so too, I just want an insight and I really want to understand.

I can see on the other thread that lots of posters are already identifying some pretty sensible questions.

I would be interested too, I don't know anything apart from the bad press and the crappy C4 programmes.

Thanks for the nudge. Someone at HQ is definitely looking into this. We'll see if we can chase it up.
