John . . . You 'Almost' had me going there . . .
. . . until your last "Caveat" paragraph!!
It's a good job you signed off with that because I was looking to rip you a new one . . . or two!!
It doesn't help when you 'file a report' with acronyms such as . . . OFT, APACS and FSA . . . whether you expand them or not!
But the clincher . . . for me personally, was . . . the 'comment' from David Emm, senior Tech C'unt of . . . 'Kasper - drive your bulldozer through my front and back door - Sky' looking for a way out of the . . .Ess-aitch-one-tee !!
Which, as it happens, was preceded by this:
1. S.I.D., et al, should 'cease and desist' using the "cyber" prefix! Dr Who always defeats the Daleks and Cyber(wo)men . . . or so I am told!!
2. OFT and GSO research ( Who the feck are GSO?) shows fuckall about fuckall because they know fuckall about fuckall. The only thing missing from their report is 'child abuse!!'
3. APACS "report" is to June 2008 and has fuckall to do with 'online banking fraud' and more to do with covering their fecking asses in the same way the FSA is doing!!
Hmm, what's that smell? Er, nothing. Really?
I thought it was . . . books . . . cooking!!
4. A risk outlook report by regulators the Financial Service Authority lamented that consumer awareness of fraudulent techniques is mediocre - at best.
Is this a defense plea or a , , , "Yippie-Ky-Ay . . . MoFo!!" . . . moment??
5 . . . "and finally" . . . To appease all those who have . . . "Nothing to hide, nothing to fear" . . . advocates . . . I personally have nothing to hide and the only thing I have to 'fear' . . . is FEAR ITSELF !!
Or more precisely . . . FUD . . .
Fear (Hmm, don't think so),
Uncertainty (I know where others are coming from but I know where I am),
Doubt (Don't we all, but like a blizzard . . . I can see through a shit-storm and a storm of shit!!)
Ho-Hum for now!
