Emerges. Cats. Pain. Heavy jets. What else do I notice? Rain. And cut-outs of William Shatner and Stephen Conroy smiling upon me. Wednesday.

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.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dnwallace

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

via Twitter Web Client

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

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tweetseller

@ForsakenDAemon The article comparing Conroy then and now is at http://bit.ly/eaV0F with links to the original material.

@trib I’m assuming the SBS liveblog has been overwhelmed. None of my comments have made it thru moderation either.

The liveblog after SBS TV’sInsight is at http://bit.ly/18ttnj (Scroll down for the CoveritLive tool thingy.) 3insight

I don’t have the television so I’ll watch when the stream goes online. Will join the liveblog after the show tho.

@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. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to maverickwoman

@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?

via Twitter Web Client

@SBS You are lovely, lovely people and I take back everything I’ve ever said about foreigners.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SBS

RT @SBS: Chased up Insight web producer for you, was told “video up tonight - ASAP after the show ends” (final @SBS message for today).

via Twitter Web Client

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

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@middleclassgirl I thought the Liberal Party gave out OAMs and meth as showbag treats? If they don’t, they should.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@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 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

So why would you want your umbrella handle to look like a dog’s head on a spike?

via Cloudhopper

@kategroom Why would Senator Conroy care what people say on Twitter? He doesn’t see it, and numbers are tiny.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kategroom

@sophblack I suspect the flying monkeys have been distracted by random bananas. As we all are.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sophblack

@alpharia Don’t worry, I will fix your blog comment and make it moar intelligenter for everyones. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alpharia

@sophblack If the flying monkeys prove unreliable we’ll have to arrange both spanking and… something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sophblack

@rod3000 As always, the best chronicle of what Conroy has said, and the government generally, is Libertus.net. http://bit.ly/1b1w1r

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rod3000

@rod3000 Yesterday’s quote may be paraphrased, but Conroy says they’ve only ever intended to filer RC material, which isn’t true.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rod3000

@DDsD Glad you enjoyed “We Are The Future”. We had a fun time in the studio with the musicians on that EP. http://bit.ly/H0nyO Ah, 1993…!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

@erkpod Maybe someone should make a Conroy Doll with a string that you pull to hear all the inane comments.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

Next thing you know, Senator Conroy will be using Twitpic to post photos of his lunch. ;)

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.

via Twitter Web Client

@sophblack Now, the important question is whether I’m back on Crikey’s “We love you” list so I get today’s email… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sophblack

@PeterBlackQUT You may wish to provide a more clueful legal comment on my post. http://bit.ly/e1rAN

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post: “Is Conroy really this ignorant of his own portfolio?” re his idiotic comment re iiNet. http://bit.ly/e1rAN

via Twitter Web Client

@sophblack So, you’re getting paid to read about flappers on cocaine and their “negro lovers”? http://bit.ly/X673T WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sophblack

@Reemski I may not be totally discredited, but I’m working on it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Reemski

Now, how the hell am I going to fit all these ideas into just one Crikey article? In an hour or so? With my pants on?

via Twitter Web Client

@andragy No problem linking (it’s the web !) maybe even link direct to the post? It’d be even better if my name was spelled right. ;)

@TheMarketerAus I never make recommendations about anything, let alone .

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gordonwhitehead

@PeterBlackQUT Quick heads-up: I’ve sent you an email which is arriving early in your day. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

OK, attention limited while I watch last night’s episode of “Insight”. http://bit.ly/82X4A Do I get danger money, @GreenJ?

@Mediamum Remember, though, you now live where 2.3M people are in jail, yet 2 seconds of exposed nipple is a national scandal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

@seancarmody Well, if you start to talk about at a serious business meeting, I’m not to blame for your judgements!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

New SBS Directors: Ms Elleni Bereded-Samuel and Mr Joseph Skrzynski AO. Also, more details on them to come later from others.

via Twitter Web Client

New ABC Directors: Mr Michael Lynch CBE AM and Dr Julianne Schultz AM. More details to come, I’m sure.

via Twitter Web Client

@seancarmody http://exectweets.com/ is “real”, though it may be rumour not fact. It appeared some days ago and got a fair bit of coverage.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Wed plan: Put on pants, another coffee; AM watch SBS Insight, write thereupon; PM webby work at my desk; quiet evening.
