Just trolling: It's OK to poke fun at Christians, says ASA

Did the Inarticulate Coward get the Troll's job?

A publisher isn't just responsible for the editorial comment but the entire publication.

For someone with shaky grammar, poor style and and only occasional sense, you're very quick to criticise others. Inferiority complex perhaps?

I used to know a Spineless Gutless Coward - are you by any chance related?

After the recent torching of the French satirical magazine for running a Prophet copy, I wonder if the Guardian will be poking fun at other faiths?

Didn't Reg posters note previously that if hardware was isolated from the Net it would be safe from this kind of attack?

Must be serious if they're admitting it.

It's simple really...

...universes are either anti-matter or matter, like people are male or female.

Next problem?

Credit card companies plan to sell your purchase data to advertisers

metaspective

Agreed

... but with the advent of the much-vaunted cashless economy, all transactions will be up for analysis. Then it doesn't matter what kind of card is used.

How is 1:2000 calculated?

If there's a 1:2000 chance the German spacejunk will hit someone, is there a 1:2000 x c.7,000,000,000 probability it will hit a particular person? Does that equate to a one in fourteen trillion risk?

I'll stick to the lottery (not)
