Why?

What is this bollocks even doing in the Reg? Was the Daily Mail full today?

FrankAlphaXII - could I suggest the Daily Mail Online - it seems like your natural home (they hate Uzbekistani goths)

Stumpy - don't let the facts get in the way of a good rant. Or you could get a grip yourself.

Re: Andrew - you are wrong.

That's fine Skelband, as long as children divide easily into your nice, simple categories.

Well said

Upvote this comment +10.

Every time I see this being used on The Reg it pisses me off. Perhaps the sub-editors (assuming they exist) could sometimes use some alternative words that are also used to describe domestic violence.

Give the Met Office £10m, says Transport Committee

Bit of a cliche

Although we are really talking about long term forecasting, it seems like a few people can't resist the opportunity to trot out some old cliches about the Met Office never getting short term forecasts right.

It seems to me that short term forecasts (2-3 days) are very accurate these days (compared with a few years ago). The other day we had a clear blue sky in the morning. The forecast said that there would be a short shower at 7pm, and there was. I think that is almost a form of magic.

Is cynicism compulsory on this site?

Don't be stupid....

We're not that backwards.

We were worried that taking a picture would steal our souls.

Although it only happens as a result of a separate research project being included in the codebase in error.

...nobody likes a smart-arse?

If you know it, just don't bother to read it - or comment on it. It's not hard.

Could we have a slap icon please?
