Re: 3-2-1.... Eadon.
Something for everyone to keep in mind when posting a comment: ALL suspects are innocent until proven guilty. Imagine if you were to be accused of a crime. It would be your right to present your case before the adjudicator (according to the law of the land) makes its decision and you are set free or convicted.
That said, gun control is clearly an emotive issue for a lot of people ... although, to be fair, not on the level of, say, the frothing fury that pours out whenever there's coverage of Apple or Microsoft. We do try to be fair when moderating these comments.
Re: What is the
The SIC was inserted because of the speaker's use of the word "very" before the word "ignorant". The penguins either know nothing – and are ignorant – or know something, and are not ignorant. The inclusion of an adverb of degree was redundant...
Re: Re: Welcome to the modern world
Would you mind getting in touch with El Reg's Anna Leach - firstname.lastname@example.org? She'd love to have a word in private.
argh, thanks for that; it has been amended..
As mum would say: I'll facilitate YOU in a minute!

Re: "horrendous grammer"
In sisk's defence, he took issue with the grammar rather than the spelling...

Re: "put a spoke in the wheels"
Ah, but the idiom doesn't refer to a wheel...
The phrase "To put a spoke in someone's wheel" originates from the days when cartwheels were solid - except for one or two holes into which a long round wooden pin could be placed. This would act as a "brake" to stop the wheel turning or the cart running away.... So if you wanted to stop an evil crimelord carter from carrying out his nefarious plan, you would put a spoke in his wheel.
Re: Dominos Pizza (in the US)
One of my favourites: "The scientist in charge had initially had moral qualms about the experiment but has since come to view the subjects as cheese-and-sauce-consuming beasts..." http://www.theonion.com/video/dominos-scientists-test-limits-of-what-humans-will,14252/ mmm, cheese burst pizza
For Pete's sake ...

Re: Everybody does it
Come on! The Facebook button is a link to the Reg's Facebook profile, and the twitter button a link to the Register's Twitter feed. If you don't want to reveal your IP, don't click... If you want to click and stay anon, use a proxy. :-)
Re: Citation, try this:
Really? Your citation is from Wikipedia? On a level playing field - nutrition, education and cultural bias out of the equation- there is no bloody difference in intelligence (It's easy to find the data goes a certain way when certain assumptions precede the collection of data). And the standardised IQ test is pretty bloody suspect too. http://www.nootropics.com/intelligence/mismeasure.html. Harvard biologist Stephen Jay Gould wrote extensively on the topic. I hope you are just trolling. Subject closed!
