God alone knows, we at El Reg are used to taking a bit of stick, but it's come to something when the nutters crawl out of the woodwork before we've even had a chance to offend. Take the recent Barnes & Noble/Microsoft outrage. Naturally, our top people were instantly on the job, and they also managed to find time to cover the …
That made my evening :-)
And it's not quite Friday, at least here in California ...
Keep up the good work, ElReg ... I may not always agree with all'y'all, but the entertainment factor, combined with actual tech news, makes for a must read over my first cuppa ... Or, rather, in this case, over a couple sips of the must from last year's crush, now turning into wine, before bed :-)
Why didn't they put more question marks in????????????????
To everything !!
well not really
Well, I object to your objecting... and then not objecting.
It's totally objectionable!
That;s the funniest thing I've heard in ages
The "author" of the flame seems more concerned that you haven't written a story.
I'd like to complain that you didn't cover the Royal Wedding after-party....
Thanks for clearing that up, Captain Obvious
There's a different challenge now
write an article sufficiently drenched in bias, poor reporting and push-buttoneering to justify the venom of the flame.
We could make that a regular game!
obviously a wanker
he didn't comment on the size of your lamentable small penis, as your wife keeps telling me.
"The Beast of Redmond has just coughed a cheque ..."
Did you thoroughly clean it and check it for viruses before you installed it in your bank account?
Of course he did
He ran it through Microsoft Security Essentials
We get that sort of twaddle regularly on the newsgroups, from a few well known sources. The unenlightening email address just confirms that what you have there is the typical troll. Ignore him, don't give him publicity, and maybe he'll go away to annoy somebody else.
(We need a "non-shouty" icon e.g. the same megaphone but with a thick red X through it)
COCKHEAD! Now that is certainly an under used form of abuse. And some people eh? Genocide is just too good for them...
It could be
...The name of a dear little English village!
The Big Story
II think that you have missed the really big story here. You uncovered proof that one of your commentators can predict the future. After all what you did write was worth of that comment anyway.
Ha ha ha, love this.
Just shows what retards are out there on the internets!
No face seems to mean you can say anything without any comeback even if it is only people laughing in your face.
I think it's nice that they let these people have access to a computer keyboard. Even if it is probably only because they can't be trusted with anything as sharp as a pen.
Enough of the pro-apple flummery Thou droning tardy-gaited pignut!
The next poster is talking complete horlicks.
You were right!
Or does this post make *me* the next poster? Confused.
It seems you're right either way. Have a biscuit.
Obviously the gentleman had a point he wished to make, and was upset that you didn't give him the opportunity to use his impressive commentard skills in the usual fashion.
Maybe he'll be along in a bit to further abuse you...
"...polish his impressively thick news pencil..."
would be getting someone else to polish it for him.
it's a title
Eloquent, but not very expressive. D+, must try harder.
"may or may not"
Oh, that's very professional. What the fuck am I paying for? So some wannabe journalist can decide whether or not he can be bothered to get his fat arse out of bed.
Sorry, lacking inspiration. Might try again later after a beer. Need to work on the spelling and grammar, too...
I thought you lot were supposed to be iWhores.
Cockheads? , whatever happend to bell-end, knob-end, dickhead?
"Your all going to hell you den of thieves and crooks". Apart from the lack of punctuation where's the industry-standard 'loosers' taunt? or did it get loost on the way?
maybe 'fail' instead of 'wtf?', needs to put more work in to the bile, poor effort 2 out of 10.
You missed out...
... knob-cheese, always makes me giggle (the actual phrase mind you, not the real thing cause my bread isn't buttered that side).
If I insult the people who insulted the person for insulting the reg. will I get insulted?
First of all, I object in the most strongest possible terms about whatever article you may or may not be writing about covering some random subject matter in the near or distant future, it's utter drivel you arserags! Just thought i'd get that one in.
I would also like to point out that I believe should the identity of of the "Cockhead"™ bomber be identified, he will no doubt be issued a writ of copywrite infringment by Apple™ for use of the term Cockhead™ which I understand is the generic name given to their litigation team.
Is it Friday yet?
Is the first helicopter
... Well, you know.
I wish to pre-emptively object to my any future article you publish, or fail to publish. I also wish to pre-emptively object to your publishing or not publishing of my objections to said article(s). Then I wish to object to the article about my objections. Obviously then I will object to my own objections in an everlasting loop.
Why, oh why, oh why????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Have a nice day.
I know that guy
His name really IS 'Cockhead'
Which, as is turns out, is perfectly apt, happily.
A colleague of mine, in a work argument, got called a dickhead. His response was to craft a set of male genitals from a block of bluetack --- and spend the rest of the day with it stuck to the middle of his forehead.
Ahhh... true dickheads! The world needs you!
(and... Andrew! Where are you know?)
elREGs posting policy
Personally I have always found the elREG posting policy fair, except when certain people disable comments, yes I mean you Andrew Orlowski, signed an anonymous coward ... :)
re: no comments
I always assumed that was a rather obvious form of sadism
In response to your article of next Thursday, I'll have you know there will be a perfectly reasonable and plausible explanation for the presence of those parakeets in my bathroom, and I am outraged and insulted that you will print such misleading insinuations.
