    Hmm just read back my posts. Apologies, I suspect I may have been a humourless twat. Anyway, the important bit, as Tevildo notes, is to congratulate Xercies on the job.

    Yeah tbh it's the comparison with a blood-sucking parasite that most bothered me. I am a stubborn bastard though, you're correct on that point.

    @Tevildo I suspect this may be similar to my complete inability to determine whether Brummies are being sarcastic or not. Not saying you're a Brummie, just a similar blind spot.

    Good to hear. Good luck with the job, hope it goes well. Btw never judge a place by how it looks, sometimes a crappy looking office and general appearance of being a bit run down hides a really fun...

    I'm pretty sure I violated that pretty heavily. It worked. Ultimately, as per the next quote, I made myself interminably annoying and in the end they were sufficiently annoyed to want me out. I was...

    Re the house situation, I was in a similar predicament many years ago. I took a less-than-adult but highly successful approach. The recipe is thus:

    Sticky: Seeing all this talk of very dark animal-based...

    Seeing all this talk of very dark animal-based tales, I'll point you guys to a book on that theme that you may not be aware of. It's very funny, it's very dark, it's not on any kind of sale so yeah I...

    This was the first thing I played on Amazon music player when I heard the result. The second was "Cunts are still running the world" by Jarvis Cocker and the third, predictably, was It's The End Of...

    Maybe it's the ambiguous use of the word "you" in English, but "If you really think an article like that is enough to make you vote someone who thinks electrocuting gay people is a good idea into...
  10. I think you're confusing me with someone who...

    I think you're confusing me with someone who would vote Trump and thinks that the things he wants are a great idea. I would suggest that characterising anyone who brings up a problem with those who...

    https://bullshit.ist/on-woke-white-people-advertising-their-shock-that-racism-just-won-a-presidency-68286682047d#.v6c9alcic This came up in my inbox from Medium. I can honestly say this is a perfect...

    I wouldn't say it came across that way to me, but then I'm sure we all see things differently (one thing that the last year has definitely taught all of us). For me, it seems sensible to do it that...
  13. It's bonkers, absolutely, and absolutely not the...

    It's bonkers, absolutely, and absolutely not the solution, but maybe people are just desperate to be heard and that's the only way to rattle the political classes enough? No I don't think it's a...

    Good to see so much constructive discussion here, even if I don't agree with everything (though even those I disagree with raise points that are relevant and worth thinking about). For me, this has...

    For me the Lords does actually do a useful job, providing scrutiny and doing a fair bit to prevent the tyranny of the majority, though it's more necessary in the case of governments elected with...

    In a random tangent, I really shouldn't be posting these with the quick reply box.. they're definitely not quick. Sorry guys.

    @Eight Rooks
    Don't get me wrong, some of it is fairly blatant but the point is that it's just on the right side of deniability in most cases, and we are only seeing the un-subtle stuff. It's...
  18. Pretty sure neither of you is ever going to win...

    Pretty sure neither of you is ever going to win this discussion. The nature of fraud is that it's unknown. We will only know about that which gets detected. So we'll never know the true extent of it....

    Good question. First, the left needs to decide what its role is. At present it thinks it is only about helping minorities. Be they racial, gender or sexuality-based. The problem is that majorities...

    Not strictly true. If you live in a place where not being religious (and it must be the right religion) is going to be heavily penalised, and where that religion is a strongly-enforced social norm,...

    The press isn't great, but the places people are getting their news from now are even worse. Trawl Periscope sometime for nutters peddling anti-vaccine stuff, various religious hate stuff, Trump...

    Rather an odd reading of my text, but it's your right to interpret it as you wish, and perhaps suggests that I failed to communicate effectively in the same way that the left did. It does however...

    Apologies for a bit of a ramble. Doing this on my lunch break - would like to take more time to properly hone and edit this but it is what it is.

    So this really is a turd sandwich. Needless to...

    Ah I misread, I figured that was the name of one of the configs. Je suis un moron.
