@ataraxite Is there any particular reason you’ve suddenly decided to join the illogical arsehat brigade today?

Note to the Universe. If someone says “A”, it does NOT mean they just said “not B”, “not C”, “not D” etc. Please try to be less stupid.

The level of ignorance, substandard intelligence and inability to do joined-up thinking amongst the “anti-war activists” is breathtaking.

People who can’t tell the difference between soldiers doing what they’re directed and politicians who issue those directions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ovadosepeace

@ovadosepeace Hint: Saying that concern for 5 dead is more important than concern for Twitter doesn’t mean I support the war. Arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ovadosepeace

@ovadosepeace You just parrot pathetic cliché propaganda without checking my views on Afghanistan first? You’re part of the fucking problem.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ovadosepeace

@ovadosepeace You need to wake up, you ignorant cunt, and fuck off with your ill-informed knee-jerk reaction to what I just said.

I stand corrected (HT @yeebok), it’s now 5 dead soldiers. I’m behind in reading my email from Defence. abc.net.au/news/2012-08-3…

OI! AUSTRALIA! LISTEN UP! Three Australian soldiers just died in Afghanistan and you’re on about being rude on Twitter? Fuck. Right. Off.

via Janetter for Mac

You can tell when people are ignorant of internet culture. It’s when they use “troll” to mean “rude” or “threatening”. Clueless n00bz.

The sheer fuckwittedness of knee-jerk calls to break things that mostly work is driving me toward the free booze and Jon Bon Jovi option.

So, we’d solve street crime by making everyone wear a t-shirt with their name and address on it. We’re all cool with that, obviously, right?

The story is also more evidence supporting my feral goldfish theory of news. Must we repeat the anonymity points EVERY time someone tweets?
