  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Listened to Steve Coogan's testamony tonight and while I knew the Daily Mail was both bigoted and a stranger to the truth, I never realised it was just so skanking. All that self righteous window dressing is a cover for their own badly skid-marked underwear.

    After this The Mail will have to rebrand: 'The Daily Fear of Change' & 'Cruising on Sunday' would be appropriate.

    Maybe Mr Coogan shouldnt have had an extramarital affair and then there wouldnt have been a problem. Hes famous , how arrogant can he be to think after the affair the other party wouldnt try to cash in. Comes across as a bit niave aswell ,doesnt he read newspapers.
    The method used might be a bit unsavoury , but then his behaviour isnt exactly out of the good marriage guide is it.:D

    Generally I dont buy news papers to learn who's screwing who, at least not in the carnal sense. It seems Coulson, Rebbekkah et al were screwing everyone.

    The gutter press are a bunch of chunts.

    The parents of Millie Dowler thought that, because her voicemail messages had been deleted, Millie was still alive.

    They where deleted by some lizard who wanted to make room for new messages.

    Viler, vile vile people.

    Some of the "celebrity" testimony so far has been uncorroborated.

    There was a footballer on earlier who was shagging two women one in Manchester and one in Chester who thought the only way the press could have known was by hacking his phone.

    I await the final report.

    ANd so JEsus was heard to say 'let them without sin cast the first stone!' Then out of the silence there came a rock which did heartily smite the Lord upon the holy noggin. All were sore afraid but the Lord was heard to cry 'Oh honestly Mary.....sometimes you really F**k me off!'

    Gets coat and leaves sniggering!

    This goes back to evidence , does it matter if the evidence obtained , "was obtained illegally" , or "is factually correct" ...I side with the latter ,providing torture isnt involved.
    I dont believe god exists in any form what so ever

    Coulson will probably be having quite a few 'extramarital affairs' where he's going...

    he might like it , whos to say he hasnt indulged.

    "evidence obtained" of someone shagging someone?

    Is there any value in knowing who is shagging whom?

    Are you actually saying the whole phone hacking stuff is justified?

    zener is off my christmas card list now....:(

    does this mean that if someone had a bad vibe about someone else you can use illegal means maybe including breaking into their home to find out if the person is possibly having an affair?

    The vile Melanie Philips has been unrelenting in her character assassination of Steve Coogan, Hugh Grant and others, claiming during the Select Committee hearings on the NoW, that Grant had no right to question the upstanding morals of the Murdochs.

    .....and is the one hack extensively quoted by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik in his 'manifesto'. She'll be in bed with the EDL next.

    As long as some "celebrity" does not engage in a public campaign against extramarital affairs, wanking spiders, getting whores dressed as nazis to whip them, it is nobody's business other than their own if the have an extra marital affair, **** spiders or get whores dressed as nazis to whip them.

    Everybody should be entitled to a private life. Revealing stuff like the above may be of interest to the public, but it is no way in the public interest.

  20. TheDecameron

    Yet that is precisely the tactic of would be opinion shapers like Phillips. Distract critical attention from her favoured corporatists, right wing politicians or violently repressive governments. Instead find a racial/ religious minority to scapegoat, along with enterntainers and other public figures. Destroy their reputation and hold them up to ridicule. Sound familiar? It's historic turf for the Daily Mail.
