YouTube flooded with porn



Isn't deliberately showing porn to children a criminal offence?

These horrible people should be tracked down and, at the very least, placed on the sex offenders register.

I expect the police are, or should, already be involved.

As for some of the comments already posted, how anyone with any degree of intelligence can condone or celebrate the act of showing porn to children, is way beyond my comprehension.

Wikimedia becomes latest to ban Phorm



I have sent an email to Google highlighting my concerns about Phorm/webwise abusing the robots.txt system which Google not only respects, but also depends on for quality search results.

Perhaps everyone should do the same?

Along with the other more obvious concerns, it may go some way in encouraging the Google folk to make a stand.

Jezza Clarkson cops flak for 'truckers murder strumpets' gag



Clarkson is the Daily Mail personified for goodness sake, what are you lot defending him for? He's a dick. Granted, he's always been a dick, but that's no excuse for him continuing to be a dick.

People have a right to complain about something they bloody well pay for. All these "turn of if you don't like it' or 'fuck off and watch Sky' comments are obviously the utterances of long standing idiots who toss themselves off at the thought of a truck driver giving their mother just what she blatantly needs.

But hey, don't be offended by that comment, I'm always saying it.

OpenOffice 3.0 - the only option for masochistic Linux users



I installed Oo3 on Suse as an auto update - took minutes after a single mouseclick and is working fine.

I find the argument as to whether it's better than Microsoft Office or not irrelevant to me as it's free and does what i want it to. I'm sure Microsoft Office is superior in many ways but I'm not going to spend hundreds of pounds to find out what those ways are.
