Scareware affiliates playing search engines


a pox on you

I can laugh about it now, but once many years ago I emailed Google when I found a time-wasting website which wasn't what it purported to be, expecting them to remove it or something.

It's rude to take people's pictures if they don't want you to. Being a photographer just means you don't care about being rude, and therefore should get thumped regularly.

International manhunt tracks pedophile suspect to Thailand



"I think you've missed the point about being a pedophile English teacher in Thailand; he's certainly teaching kids."

I think the point was that pedophiles aren't into child-abuse whilst paedophiles are.
