Perhaps instead of (or as well as?) the Dead Pool, we ought to have the paedo pool.
A new thread?

Yes. Great idea. 'Cos Libel lawyers are skint these days and need all the help they can get.
I was thinking that myself. The Nonce Pool - bets on which celebrity will be next. As far as I'm concerned, that ******* ******** is a dead cert.
A spectacularly bad idea.
Only learned recently that NONCE is an acronym for Not On Normal Courtyard Exercise.
But I've led a sheltered life. I've only ever known four convicts. One kiddie fiddler, one who was a bit too fond of bondage and teenage boys, one car thief and one receiver of stolen goods. Probably average for someone who lives in a supposedly "respectable" environment.
I think, Titus, that's a man-in-the-pub made up etymology. A load of bollocks. A bollocronym.
Or at best, an acronym back-formed for an existing word as a joke or challenge. A bacronym.
Like all those "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" and "Fornicating Under Consent of King", "Port Outward, Starboard Home", "Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden" bollocronyms.
The entymology is given some credibility here
although not by Wiki.
I don't think urban dictionary is a very reputable source. :-)
It's a backronym. They're always plausible.
And as for NAFF, well don't even go there...
Also from the Urban Dictionary:
An indifferent one on the low end of morality, or lacking thereof. A man-whore with little regard for others' opinions and views. A sadistic and often offensive sense of humor. Sees oneself as an elitist in terms of combat and sexual ability.
Person 1: Why's he hittin' on every girl?
Person 2: It's Titus, c'mon...
Person 1: Hehe, let's do this.
Person 2: Don't be like Titus, dude.
It's the eighth definition of Titus they list, but you get the picture...
Urban Dictionary isn't that authoritative...
Also, entymology is the study of insects, while etymology is the study of the origins of words.
I do so hate when the resident pedant gets it wrong while correcting someone.
Standards are slipping...
Who would have thought?
Titus has his own range of sex toys.
I will never be able to look at a dildo again without thinking of Titus.
So....no change there then.
Meanwhile back at the original idea.... I think I suggested this last year and was told firmly that it was not a good idea. I still think it is though 'cos I have not got much to be sued for.
The late Edward Heath. There I've said it. It's common knowledge anyway but if they start looking at ex PMs think how parliament would shit itself.
Hmm yes very bad idea who knows where it would end if you were to say for example 'Lord McAlpine's a paedo' .... oops.. now he is dead isn't he ??
<withdrawn on legal advice>
How about a list of people you would be horrified to find out were paedos? That must be legal. You would have to start each sentence with, "Wouldn't it be aweful if X was..." or "Surely the person most unlikely to be unveiled as a pervert would be..."
