No, bottom line is people stop flying drones near anything else also flying.

Dodgy parking firms to be denied access to Brit driver database

Re: dodgy parking companies

I love (not) the ones that accept payments via their app (RingGo, etc.) even when it's during the free period but the signs are hard to find or confusing.

Re: So the internet's not just made for pron.

On a side note I'm always surprised how many people use their work email for private communication, mixing it all together. There are plenty of free online email accounts that people can use, not even if they have anything to hide, just to keep work and play separate.

Re: Clarity required

how do you plan to impose your solution upon the world?

I propose some sort of space station that only some people get to go on space shuttles and then it blows up the world and then they all go back and have lots of babies. James Bond will return in "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY". The End.

Proposed Brit law to ban b**tards brandishing bots to bulk-buy tickets

ravenviz
Flame

I HATE TOUTS

I've been going regularly to music events for over 25 years, and touts are a scourge. I do not object to selling on tickets per se, my only condition is that all tickets get sold to fans who want to go, and at face value, it should not be an economy.

1. Touts are excluding tickets from face value that then get sold out

2. Touts may have tickets left over after the event which means real fans could not go

I rocked up at Hyde Park one time wanting a ticket to a sold out event, approached a tout with an amount and haggling strategy in mind. At the same time a lady approached with a spare ticket and I offered to buy it from her at face value. At which point the tout erupted and got very offensive saying I was ruining his livelihood! WHAT?! Luckily another tout saw the commotion, intervened, and I was able to buy said ticket at face value.

Ticket resale just for profit should be made illegal, as should resales of more than two. If it is in the law then it can be policed; police are at these events anyway so they can keep their eyes and ears open for touts and rid us all of them.
