@michaelneale @SnarkyPlatypus And that was a remarkably polite way for me to express that thought.

@michaelneale @SnarkyPlatypus I think there’s a Humpty Dumpty affect, where words have unique meanings in each reader’s idiolect.

@natecochrane My pleasure. Yes, must catch up soon. It’s a shame Tokyo couldn’t happen for me.

RT @leslienassar: @stilgherrian @swearyanthony “Potential Impressions” are miracle KPI elixirs. [I may bill editors for “potential words”.]

via Janetter for Mac

@swearyanthony I think it’s a result of agencies using simplistic “buzz” metrics, like how many times the hashtag was used.

RT @elronxenu: @jodiem @melissapierce If it was sent to PureVPN members only, that indicates userbase compromise at minimum? [I reckon so.]

via Janetter for Mac

@russellmahoney Yeah it’s a bit scary. Up here the eucalypt scrub is dusty and deafening with sound of cicadas. Hot. Dry. Not good.

“They might contact you if they need any details about the case they are working on.” Precursor to a large-scale phish attempt?

via Janetter for Mac

The PureVPN email @jodiem mentioned is starting to look like a hoax, or something else. reddit.com/r/privacy/comm… HT and thanks @melissapierce

via Janetter for Mac

Oh dear. @NAB has a hashtag campaign, , to match their slogan. We all KNOW this won’t end well, don’t we, kids.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile I did expect more comments about the Illuminati and the lizard people and stuff like that, though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@bengrubb @SenatorLudlam Yeah, look, I don ‘t know where to begin listing all the things that are wrong with his comment.

Also worth a Bronze Arsehat: “Let’s just hope that when the Internet becomes sentient, it is familiar with Marxism.”

Lulziest so far: “In fact, some academic degrees such as Gender Studies will produce people who are indoctrinated to promote falsehoods.”

via Janetter for Mac

I think the problem is that they read the second-last par as my view of what should be done, as opposed to describing an argument.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m astounded anyone read it as an argument in favour of one view or another, amused to see people on BOTH “sides” think I’m against theirs.
