I’m leaving the trolls. An entire 1st year essay could be written on Lyle Shelton’s faulty logic and invalid rhetoric. All heat, no light.

via Twitter Web Client

@dnwallace No, fuckwits like Lyle Shelton shouldn’t be given the oxygen of publicity. Actually, they shouldn’t be given oxygen full stop.

SBS liveblog has descended into a pointless trollfest. ACL’s troll is verballing people and parroting Conroy’s talking points.

@tweetseller No, I’m NOT selling anything, stupid attention seeking robot! http://bit.ly/Vht2u It’s reported speech. Now go away.

@Jen_Bennett If you do ask her about it, she does have a date picked and a place… enough detail to make it sound legit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jen_Bennett

@FortuneGrey She’s been running this scam for years. Been caught for it, but presumably well worth doing. She did door-to-door in Enmore.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to matt_levinson

@pyrmontvillage Yeah I’ve seen her do Newtown pubs, and tonight was a noodle bar in Haymarket. She does have her patter down perfect.

@maverickwoman “Entrepreneurship”? In my day it was called “obtaining money by deception” and was a crime. ;)

@notanexit @paulwiggins @flashman @Level20EastGuy @maverickwoman Ta for the input. If my food hadn’t just been served I’d have tailed her.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway she’s gone now and I’m eating my pho. No energy to chase fraudsters tonight.

via Twitter Web Client

And, this same women has been doing it for ages, with her block of cloakroom-style “raffle tickets”.

via Twitter Web Client

It’s a classic. Spiel is “We’re raising funds to send our mob to an indigenous dance festival in North Dakota”. It’s been running for years.

via Twitter Web Client

There’s a girl in Haymarket running that old scam, “I’m selling raffle tickets for an indigenous dance troupe”. Shall I report her?

@Nickhodge Old Age Pensioners… the Liberal Party… essentially the same thing? Oh, no, the Libs would be “self-funded retirees”. Snobs.

@SBS Yes, dear, but WHEN? Immediately after the program? In the morning? Auto-tweet FAIL. (Why am I discussing this with a robot?)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SBS

@SBS We’re in that part of Enmore with no TV reception, and I have to watch the program before 1000 tomorrow. Perhaps I visit a friend?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SBS

@SBS Thanks for the pointer to where the Insight video goes online. http://bit.ly/77XgZ But WHEN does that happen?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SBS

I suppose I’d better go home and watch SBS Insight in just under an hour, assuming it’s streamed. http://bit.ly/18ttnj If not, I’ll whinge.

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod Nah, I also said on “Stilgherrian Live” that I was getting sympathy for Senator Conroy. Now I just want to slap him.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@HappySinger Indeed, as Senator Minchin said, Conroy’s the one in “Yes, Minister” land. NBN tender process, anyone?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to HappySinger

I was actually starting to feel sympathy for Senator Conroy last week but today’s effort is just fuckwittedness.

I must say, the local Anglican church is sending much more attractive chaps around doorknocking these days.

@ashermoses If waiting for the trial results is Conroy’s strategy, that’s 4 to 6 more months of being made to look like an idiot.

@shanewilliamson But even if Conroy is “filtered out”, it wasn’t “his” policy. It’s ALP policy. Conroy is not the target, the policy is.
