      My thoughts exactly

      Yet people are castigated for calling their child Pandora? At least that's a real name.

    Come on Reg!

    Oh come on Reg? Really, does this have to be the online, IT tech news equivalent of the Daily Star? You are way above this sort of thing!

    ( YaVaughnie Wilkins? Come on, that's not a real name, not unless your a second-rate, Christian fundamentalist country and western singer! )

Thing is he's not exactly in the same ball park as Tiger Woods and I don't care about him either. Women eh, can't beat 'em, can't join 'em, can't even stop them taking out massive billboard ads.

    Let me get this straight.

    The guy is divourced from his wife AND is no longer in a relationship with the mistress.

    Why is the mistress putting these posters up then?

    it angle?

    someone has to ask.. i can't see the it angle, but surely someone can concoct one.

    i was hoping to see more to this story than "someone had a shag" there's not even a funny part to it. poor effort all in all, sorry.

    don't know who they are, and still wouldn't care if i did. less of this sort of unamusing tripe please.
