    Coffee and Women

    Before this news article, I seldom link coffee with women. I often associate coffee with work (pretty obvious, huh, it gives me courage to face all the challenges everyday) and video games, since one of the cybercafes I often visit makes very good coffee, so good that I never miss it every visit for my online games. But hey, those Italians do know how to enjoy their life...... male Italians that is.

    The Daily Mail isn't "news".

    Really? A Daily Mail non-story as an excuse to post pictures of a woman wearing very little? Why?

    There's a place for trash like this, it's called the Daily Mail. If we keep it contained there, we can avoid it.

    You do realise it is one of the most circulated "newspapers" in the UK, right? It's also got the second or third (I think) most visited "news" site in the UK, too.

    It's the most popular news source in the World, actually. The print and online editions are different though. What does that have to do with what I said? It's popular, yes. It's still full of trash, and I'd rather it was contained in the Daily Mail, so that I can avoid it.

    a) That doesn't address the problem.
    b) You originally said "we", arguably referring to anyone with more than three brain cells.

    a) What problem? If it's in the Daily Mail, I can avoid it. Problem solved.

    b) "We" as in people who don't want to read half softcore porn, half press releases masquerading as news, from the likes of the Daily Mail.

    Yeah, let's ignore it and it'll go away. You *do* realise the attitudes and shit propagated by the DM actually affect the lives of people in a negative manner, right? Whether you're gay, non-white, Muslim, transgendered or a slightly weighty woman, you're degraded, insulted and singled-out by the DM.

    i.e. anyone with more than three brain cells.

    You mates make it sounds like this "Daily News" is kinda junk media. I am not British so I have no idea about this newspaper. Is it reputed that bad? I just happen to pick this article up on Net so I must say I have no idea about that.

    But hey why so serious about it? I guess even if those medias are junk, they exist for entertainment since modern people are often under too great living pressure from all kinds. Sometime reading junks to relax a bit isn't a bad thing really.

    The Daily Mail is the single most offensive source of ill-informed bullshit on the internet. You don't have to be British to know just how bad it is.

    Not really my job, or my priority, to be righting the wrongs of the media world right now Althea. Best to Identify & Contain, reduce exposure. Then there are questions about free speech and freedom of the press... along the line of John Stewart Mill, for example, that the people and the ideas you object to, you don't want to silence or remove... you want to engage with them. Even if something is false or wrong, the truth is strengthened and is better understood through examination of the falsehoods and wrong things.

    Last time I checked, free speech and freedom of the press don't allow for slander, racism, homophobia, transphobia and Islamophobia to be printed on a regular basis due to them being hateful.

    I think most western countries have newspapers (to a bigger/lesser degree) just like The Daily Mail. Here in Denmark we know them by the name of BT and Ekstra Bladet. They aren't as bad as The Daily Mail (thank god), but the level of journalism, usage of manipulative, emotionally fused wording and, in some cases, articles pandering to public opinion, really annoys me. Especially since it sells so well.
    It's quite strange, I don't know how it is with The Daily Mail in England, but here in DK those two newspapers get bashed in public media. In the typical Danish passive-aggressive way. Not often but it happens.

    Death thought about it.

    So write to the Press Complaints Commission, or the Police, or your MP. Not me.

    You are the one suggesting we just "bury" the Daily Mail and/or ignore its existence.

    That doesn't make the problem go away.

    Are you just trying to start an argument here? I'm with you, the Daily Mail is trash... It's hateful and all those things. But I'm content just now to ignore it. If you want to go on a Crusade, go ahead... but don't expect me to join in.

    maybe
    it does allow saying that polish people are destroying everything British that uk should deport any non-white person as they are destroying the country also or that homosexuals according to dr. Gotmydegreefromchristianuniversity are sole reason why violence happens on street and so on and on.
    while they can not say go kill Poles/Muslim/gays
    they can portray them in very negative light.

    Wow. Really? You are trying to start an argument, aren't you...

    I'm no better than the Daily Mail because, even though I despise it, I'm not going to drop everything I'm doing currently to go on a Crusade against it, or because I choose to direct my time and attention to other causes? I think that's an awfully wrong headed and blinkered way of looking at things... I'm either with you or against you, I'm part of the solution or part of the problem.

    What causes are you NOT out fighting for today Althea? Corrective rape in Africa? Arrest of 2 Lesbians in Cameroon? Ugandan laws looking to execute repeat homosexual offenders? Why aren't you over there doing something about these things, rather than turning a blind eye to them? You are no better than these bigoted thugs Althea.

    Are you protesting the misinterpretation of science, the lobbying and the agenda pushing masquerading as political representation that's being carried out by the Heartland Institute currently? Are you showing that climate change sceptics are twisting science and statistics to spread untruths? If not, you're no better than them.

    What are you doing about human trafficking in the Eritrean region, for slave labour and/or sexual exploitation? What about the misguided policies of the Catholic Church in regards to contraception in general, and condom use in sub-Saharan Africa? The subjugation and abuse of women in Afghanistan (and many other Muslim countries)? The Government oppression in Syria and the slaughter of innocent people? Deforestation in S. America? Illiteracy and innumeracy in our schools? Alzheimers and Parkinsons?

    You see where that logic of yours leads?
