Re: So sorry to see you go.
Certainly not. x
Re: Read The Guardian One
The trailer review is hysterical.
Re: the only "big" name?
Well, fair point, but I guess in tabloid terms Ramsay is the big... bird. Would you have clicked on this story if it had Dougray Scott in the headline?
Re: Turkey Gordon Bleugh
It's not 'his', it's just that he's the only big name involved, see.
Re: Same shit happening over here
I believe they've backtracked on that now. Good. It was wrong.
Re: Don't worry John
It's truly staggering how much lollage you lot get out of typos. It's like jingling keys in front of a baby...
Re: @AC 1051 28/6
Funny Scott Adams would say that and then completely forget all about it.
Re: What the hell.
Speak for yourself, mortal boy.
Re: It shouldn't help him either
Did I forget to welcome all our eminent autism experts to this thread? What an appalling oversight on my part!
Re: Re: Why make a big deal of a disability?
And it's been brought up, so it's relevant, but no one's having a pop, OK?
While I'm here - hey, everyone! Let's see who can win a prize for not being a total dick in this thread.
Re: Why make a big deal of a disability?
In this instance I think it counts as mitigation, actually.
Wake me when this thread is over.
Re: Bleedin' Psychologists...
I don't see how it victimises or belittles gay men personally, but perhaps I'd feel differently if I were a gay man.
Re: Peer Review?
Re: Computer Weekly
Oh right I get it.
Re: Causation / Correlation
Yes, that sounds *much* more likely.
Re: Now, now, Miss Bee...
Re: Can't you take the report button off people...
I suspect our tech wizard would have a nervous breakdown.
Re: Ignorance is a fine excuse
This compels me to remove your superfluous apostrophe.
Re: AC 12:01
Entirely appropriate usage. Carry on.
Re: And to fully piss patients off...
I plan to abuse all the substances when/if I'm old.
Re: "Cleary's mum told Sun Ryan was agoraphobic and has a history of mental illness"
Oh dear. You're not fully up on the whole mental illness thing, are you?
It has been reclassified as a minge coat.
See, you lot think you're sooooooo *rude*. I would take you to school.
No it didn't. Look at the URL.
I don't think anyone was laughing about that.

Re: Just got to convince the wife
I see what you did there.
Re: No need for burkhas
Not really. It sacrifices leg length to show curvy bits. It's a trade-off. Or a pants-off.
Re: OK let me clear this fasion up once and for all.
I don't believe that is correct.
Re: Hi Ms Bee
Hey, I'm a pedant, it's just that you're like a one-man PEDANT WAR.
But I understand.
Christ, I don't care as much about misspellings as you, YR, and it's my job to care.
I doubt Italians give much of a fuck about someone on the Reg getting some coffee wrong.
Re: A MICHAEL BAY FILM!
It's when he starts trying to call them 'A MICHAEL BAY JOINT' that we've got a serious problem.
Re: I remember this site!
It's good, it's a self-selecting group of shallow berks who are welcome to each other.
Sorry, I mean YEAH IT'S LIKE RACISM.
Re: Sounds like a business opportunity to me
There's an ugmo site that got some attention recently when one unpretty person met another one through it and then dumped her and somehow it was a story.
Re: It's clearly a publicity stunt
Hi Graham! See Lester's update.
As it currently stands, counting the edit and this comment, you've got two mentions to the site's one. I think you win.
I'm saying nothing.
Re: not at all, old lad.
What *is* it with you lot and 'females'? You realise it makes you sound like you're talking about horses or something. We are *women*, if you don't mind.
Re: Re: A throng of ladies
I bet it's not.
Re: A throng of ladies
You would need very sophisticated instruments to be able to identify precisely how little I care about this now. I am changing it to 'string' but there will be no need for you to go running around your place of work with your shirt over your head.
Re: Title? We don't need no stinkin' title!
Heh. You got served.
They're not synonyms. 'Racist' is more specific, 'bigoted' is more general.
Re: is crap from the 80's cool again?
I love leggings, me, and I care not a fuck if they are cool or not.
Re: "Unless you have worked in support"
That is fantastically off-topic. There are no guns, stacks or bulls to be found anywhere in that.
Re: re: Not sure about the analogy
Re: If I was the Reg moderator
Nah, just a few commentards. I know a guy, he does mates' rates.
Re: You realise
You can't ignore the clanging impact of the word. It has too much attached to it.
I think it's the only sane move for the makers to change the name - leaving it as it was would be a huge distraction, overshadowing the rest of it, causing needless controversy and messing with people's suspension of disbelief. It's a sensible decision on artistic grounds.
