Sorry... but that's just horrible...
moanygit, it's arseholes like you that are posing a threat to freedom of speech. I very much suspect that you're really talking about yourself being aroused by the talk of abuse.
try imagining what it must be like to be falsely accused of such a crime and then have it broadcast around the world and suddenly you're well known, for something you didn't have anything to do with.
If it's so offensive to you, stop commenting and bumping it to the top.
Admin: please feel free to delete this if considered offensive.
You should get rid of it while you still have the chance.
Judging by what Lord McAlpine's lawyer was saying on the news this afternoon...you are the very sort of person they will be persuing through the courts.
Several of us have posted silly things like this recently but fortunately come to our senses in time and deleted them.
You should consider doing the same.
That's right moany leave it to someone else to decide. You're obviously not responsible for your own actions, like everyone else nowadays.
I'd rather it was left, just to show what an arsehole you are.
BTW after saying all this I do believe all the rumours about Jof and his extensive fake North Face handbag collection.
you're able to edit it and delete yourself and I'd relly suggest you do that, for the reputation of the site and your own personal benefit. If you check the Telegraph online Lord MacAlpine's lawyers are scanning the internet for defamatory comments and making request for settlement or sue. The guy is probably understandably highly offended and is wealthy enough to pursue people with the zeal of a crusade against twitteratti / trial by internet.
May seem a little knee jerk, adn its never a great feeling when you think you've done edgy humour and others don't agree...I think Dvo is in the final stages of his doctorate thesis on the subject...
Just friendly advice.
Deleted as best I could don't know how to delete the post . Just edited to leave it blank.
If anyone knows how to delete the post feel free to tell me how.
'...' moany, I take that personally...
I think thats fine; editor might tidy it up, you have a brew, ignore the reactionary criticism, and go again when a funny idea next comes to mind. We've all tripped oer the line ar various times, its an uncomfortable landing but not a calamity.
Now, shall I tell you about the time I marked 'two seats' on the coach list sign-up sheet next to the name of the young lady with a mega-butt? You could hear her sobs from the ladies loos echoing throughout the building.
Blimey - nip out for the seniors' concession showing of 'Skyfall' and when I get back everything's kicked off.
@ironduke. Thesis final draft with Supervisor now
BTW after saying all this I do believe all the rumours about Jof and his extensive fake North Face handbag collection
I believe they're called Shit Face ??
Pah! I didn't think it was that offensive. Not exactly funny though. Still no harm done. Looking forward to moanygit's next effort. Keep going matey!
So now we have comments about ignoring the reactionary criticism and "I didn't think it was that offensive." There's either a great degree of naivety or a lack of intellectual ability to understand what is going on here; probably a combination of both. Calling the sub offensive or not just shows you haven't grasped what the real issue is.
The fact is that shit sticks. I know very little about this McAlpine bloke even though I was around when he was part of the government and I read all the proper papers. One thing he'll always stick in my and your minds for is the implication that he had something to do with child abuse. In a few years you might still remember that it was in Wrexham which will probably end up as North Wales a few years after. A few years after that you may still remember he was totally innocent and the accuser had just got the name wrong. However, it'll probably just be the child abuse with most.
I mention years but I know in some cases here it'll be days or possible hours.
As I said, I know very little about McAlpine. He may be a wonderful bloke, he may be a complete and utter twat, as far as I know but I don't think anyone deserves to carry that sort of accusation for the rest of their life.
Lucy4, did you read Boris Johnson's Torygraph column on Monday?
Anyway, hate him or otherwise, look it out if you've time...
Like you, he was writing in anger on exactly the same subject..
"The fact is that shit sticks"..."I don't think anyone deserves to carry that sort of accusation for the rest of their life"
ok... gotcha.... false, unsupported accusations are bad.. Mkay?
but wait.. what's that you say?
"I very much suspect that you're really talking about yourself being aroused by the talk of abuse"
move along... nothing to see here...
Moany git, you're babbling and I've no idea what you're trying to express. Mind you, I'm not that bothered, either.
Bunbury- I'm not a fan of Boris but will give it a look at. You're right, though, I was writing in anger. It really does piss me off when people, who are sitting pretty, judge, condemn and dismiss others without knowing the facts and have no care for the consequences.
I didn't see the original post, perhaps that is fortunate.
In it's modified form though, it's hardly offensive at all,
... unless you happen to be a full-stop . In which case it might be offensive
by suggesting that you were doing a threesome! ...
good job Moany didn't put a colon as well :
oops, isn't that rude, one full stop on top of another
I had better cover them up, for the sake of decency (:)
Do try and read it Lucy..
Let's not mix politics with something far simpler - and far more basic...
I'd like to know what you think...
Rowly: if you don't know what you're talking about try shutting the fuck up
Bunbury: Yes, I read and can't deny that the blond haired joker makes several good points, especially as he agrees with me. I think the basic problem is how do you grade pedophilia as a crime. These days it's the worst crime you can possible commit, though i'd have thought murder or, God forbid, Regicide was far worse.
In the 60s/70S children were aware of which relative to avoid. Obviously some abuse must have gone on in childrens homes but I doubt whether the millions paid out in damages claims have all been deserved. When I say "I doubt" I mean I know.
How about we all calm down and jog on?
There's nowt to be offended about anymore and Dvo always carries some chalk to fill the line back in once its been trampled.
I admit it is all a "Fuck up", I was trying to steer the subject sideways.
So I did try "shutting the Fuck-up"
It was obvious from the posts, the subject matter, if not the detail.
There was a time, when I took notice of newspaper allegations, or BBC "reports"
but not anymore, I lost interest in unsubstantiated allegations & now I make a point of avoiding internet rumours.
I do care very much about the subject matter though.
I would always be glad to read of a successful conviction of a child abuser.
I much prefer the Jury to listen to the horrid details & deduce guilt.
This is (was) supposed to be a humorous site.
I much prefer courteous comments to my posts, but if you have been reading online drivel
and have become overwrought, please swing your handbag at somebody else.
can we now go back to humour.
Love these ones, they really separate the wheat from curds, and then from the clarified ghee.
However, I didn't see what the original post was. What the fuck was the original post. I'll either have a good laugh (I believe it's called lol) or not. But give me the option!
@Quango - I missed it too, but I am willing to bet it follows your food theme ... something about a 'dodgy' sandwich perhaps?
Ms/Mr Ironduke, after first of all pointing out that my comment about being offended wasn't the issue here, so why you should bring it up again is beyond me, i'd like to express an opinion: I'd say that anyone who gives himself the grandiose name of Ironduke for a web site is probably a little bit insecure and the chances are that his penis is a little below the average length. What do you think?
Rowly: piss off, you talk too much. Go swing your own handbag ducks.
i'm quite new here, but lucy4 seems a little aggressive, to me.
is this normal?
Fraid to say you're no newer than I am arthur, but every month, at a certain time of the month, someone makes a sexist comment, and then someone overreacts to it, it's just the way the cookie bakes itself, and then someone decides whether it has baked properly...
No quango it's not "That time of the month" dick heads like you are around all the time.
