Can we get "I'm a backwards prick, just so you're aware" tattooed on the clergy please?
Nine times out of ten it's an electric razor. But … every once in a while … it's a dildo.
Of course, it's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo. We have to use the indefinite article, "a dildo", never … your dildo.
re : AC
ftp.bbc.co.uk is the main content server, they allow media companies etc to login and upload content. I think they must mean those logins also, not really clear there though!
It's nicer overall
I like it. A little wider with slightly bigger text would be just perfect - perhaps those could be clickable options on the top bar. Also, the grey at the side is so light as to be distracting (The "Don't Miss" section at the bottom is a nicer grey, for example) - it is constantly leading the eye away from the main content. Dizzying. :) The new vulture favicon does not look nice against a black-themed browser toolbar either. This is all small stuff though, really. Well done to everyone who pushed it all out so speedily, it's presented very nicely.

I quite like my unspeakable acts, thank you. I am not really into pornography myself but if someone wants to watch a BDSM scene, I am perfectly fine with that. I find it deplorable that the government is trying to legislate the nations sex lives. Soon they will be criminalising us for thinking about it. If the man I am with consents, then I will do whatever gets our rocks off - I will not stop and say "Hmm, you know, darling - the government doesn't approve of me choking you while we are at it on top of the garden shed dressed in spandex so let's not do it anymore."
Also, here is some loving for Sarah Bee. <3
Re passwords in plain text
The system they use shows the password to the operator in plain text, it is only for business accounts - apparently. Not sure if I trust them on that though..

There was a petition previously - http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/GaryMcKinnon/
I would suggest writing to your MP instead and see if you can get them to ask a question in the house.
Nothing new really
I have a good friend who travels to the South of France each year for seasonal work. I have heard many horror stories from him about the local eateries, including one fella who had a novel waste disposal unit in his restaurant's kitchen - two Alsatians, which resided within a cupboard with a hole cut into the top so he could toss the scraps to them.
What is it about being away from home that suddenly makes people think "Ah, that cook doesn't look very clean and he just sneezed on that burger AND he scratched his arse with the fork - I'll eat it anyway though!" It is their own fault, most of the time. For example, the Americans do love to moan about Brit food but then you realise from the stories they tell you that they were eating in greasy spoons and old men's pubs etc. You get what you pay for.
It's not just in India
The results are consistent year upon year. The NHS nurses (gawd love 'em) will not tell people the sex of their child because they know the women will go to India, have an abortion and come back here to get pregnant (with a male) again.
Maybe he'll wash his hands of the whole thing. >_>

"But why do I think most of the players are middle-aged men?"
This is truer than you think. A while back I was involved in management for a major record retailer. A fair chunk of the people who bought Britney Spears and similar crap were 30 something males with greasy combovers, hiding their purchases under their coats on the way out of the store so that mother didn't see it when they got home.

"I bet it was the "Anonymous" group of Somethingawful.com. They're always up for sick things like that."
Heh. To post on Something Awful, you need to sign up with a name and *pay*. I think you are perhaps confusing them with 4chan, who are, indeed, Anonymous. Anon is legion.
