Unfortunately the AFP, will probably not be able to mete out the sort of justice that this troll deserves. At times, the only way to stop a dog from biting is to put him down.

Topic Poly relationships
Posted 05 Feb 2014 10:32

IMHO, The reason that we are all put on this earth is to love and be loved.

It matters not whether ones relationship is polygamous, monogamous, open, polymorphic or whatever.

It matters not whether a person finds themselves hetrosexual, bisexual, sapiosexual, into BDSM or just prefers a mirror so they can see their TRUE love and their right hand.

The one defining feature is love. That is all one can strive for. To give it and receive it.

But then maybe that's just me.

Topic OUTRAGE! - Canada bans Marmite and Irn Bru
Posted 28 Jan 2014 10:45

Well at first I was outraged at this. Marmite banned???? I mean we have been to war for less of an insult.

I do have a close Canadian friend (Who I somehow still like, even though she thinks the stuff is horrible... (We all have to have bad taste somewhere. (Mine is actually liking Barry Manilow....but hey ho))) and despite the ban, after serious thought, I decided that our friendship can survive this.

Anyhow, I digress,

The more I think about it, The more I like the idea.
I think that more countries should ban it.
My reasoning is this....Why the hell should we let any other country sample the finest taste on the face of the planet. In olden days the original holy grail was probably a jar of Marmite....It was only when that idiot Mallory tried to romanticise it that it became the blood of Christ...(personally I think the taste of Marmite is probably better than drinking the blood of Christ..I mean ewwwww). King Arthur probably supped some yeast from the top of a vat of beer and thought that all of his Christmases had come at once..(And yes...that is how it is made...I work next door to the brewery that they take it from).

Marmite is as English as the Mini used to be....(And look what happened to that when we let the Germans sample THAT delight. They bought the company, and turned England's most iconic car into a glorified shopping trolley ...And Rolls Royce as well come to think of it).

It is as English as the Queen and Fish and Chips....it is part of our National Identity.

Many Countries have tried to imitate it...(Yes I do love Australia, but Vegemite??...Seriously!!!...It is like comparing a bottle of Dom Perignon to Asti Spumanti)

The other problem with exporting it, is that it automatically makes the price on domestic soil increase.....(Look at whiskey....The Americans pay half the price for what was made on our fair isle....albeit in Scotland). I shudder to think of that happening in that case.

I may be a little biased as I am a full member of the Marmariti, but I want to shout it from the rooftops "Keep Marmite English!!!!"

Topic Can you really ever stop loving someone after a relationship is over?
Posted 24 Jan 2014 11:25

Love is an energy. Energy, as all scientists know, cannot disappear, but its form may change. Hence the lyric "There's a thin line between love and hate".

Topic Malala - Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize
Posted 08 Oct 2013 21:11



I don't think she is returning, not according to the World Service interview she gave yesterday.

We need to get the price of technology down so that it is not possible for the reactionaries to stop children from getting an education by shutting down the schools.

It is not just the girls, the Taleban tries to keep ignorant. They want to limit boys to a crap Madrassa education where all they do is learn the Koran by rote and some bigot's interpretations of it. That isn't learning knowledge.

Tablet PCs and WiFi are a powerful learning tool and they are pretty hard to suppress.

My apologies Byron,

I am referring to an interview that she gave a few months back with the BBC, where she pledged to return and enter politics in a bid to increase the level of education in her home country. It seems that this Nobel nomination might have put paid to that with what is now a very defined and clear danger to this poor girls life. The Taliban are now using the nobel nomination as a means to get a little more publicity.

Topic Malala - Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize
Posted 08 Oct 2013 13:09

What has not been mentioned is that she is now returning to continue her campaign for freedom of education for females even though she had been told that it will probably mean her death. To me this prize is nothing compared to her courage.

The Taliban which ironically enough means teacher is an evil that has to be stamped out so these young women can feel educated and safe.

Topic Prostate Cancer chances high - I guess I should get mine removed now?
Posted 16 May 2013 12:15

I think an 87% chance of contracting cancer makes this decision a no-brainer.

The really brave decision that she has made however is to publicise it.

I think personally that her reasons are humanitarian rather than being a media whore. She is clearly bringing this into the public consciousness and making women who are are perhaps in the same situation but not having the surgery due to vanity reasons, (And I am in no way judging anybody for that) Think to themselves "Well if one of the worlds most beautiful women can do this without feeling any less of a woman...Why can't I?"

For that reason, I think that she should be applauded.

What you're saying though is that we shouldn't even presume to debate the subject.

On the contrary. Debate is one of the healthiest pursuits of the mind.

What I am saying is that no thought has really gone in via this debate to the creators.

Somebody designed the mark, They were probably quite proud of it. It was then probably approved by some other people....Who lets face it, probably help run this site without getting any wages for doing so. Gav then had to spend some time coding, to allow the badge to be used. We are already talking probably over 12 man-hours worth of work. It just seems a little ungrateful to me that it is now being run down by a select few.

This site is a community but not a democracy. The site is Nicola's.....And long may she continue with it.

Who are we? We're the end users! Without end users there isn't any point to development.

If this how Google put stuff out for testing, no wonder they fail so spectacularly whenever they try to launch their own social networking tools

Currently there are 4655 active users on this site!

So far there has been in this thread around five or six people complaining. Would you change your software on the basis of a what a handful of users do not like, or would you look at the 4649 who have found no cause for complaint?

The economics are obvious.

The team here very obviously DO care, or they would not keep making improvements to what is a very well put together site.

Sometimes you have to just realise that some people do not like change. No matter what improvements you make, These people will still find fault.
