WARNING!  COFFEE HAS LOTS OF CAFFEINE IN IT!  IT HAS MORE CAFFEINE THAN COCA COLA!


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

460 vs 32 suggests that they have a point though.

I don't take sugar in my coffee, but I suspect that Coca Cola has 8 times more sugar in it than most cups of coffee. Sugar is said to be really bad for us.

Daily Mail journalist Stephen Wright has written about the Lawrence case, both before and subsequent to the prosecution. He was awarded a Special Campaign Award as part of the 2012 Paul Foot Award for his work in the Lawrence case.[

 

see   http://en.wikipedia....tephen_Lawrence  and here

John, in some ways that makes it worse; it shows they are capable of good quality journalism when they put their mind to it. It makes me think that when they produce their reams of absolute drivel that they do it knowingly, and that in my eyes is just trolling.

Understood. I think, though, the view that most people get is via the on-line edition, which seems to carry more of the rabble-rousing stories, with their headlines with the seemingly random and gratuitous odd  WORD in upper case.  The paper itself, which I have read ( though never bought) in places like the Little Chef when I was a road warrior is nowhere near as bad. 

 

its the stereotyping, though, by the loony left on here ( see, I can do stereotyping, too!) that I call into question.

To be fair, I know plenty of right-leaning people who also find the Mail's particular brand of loony right nonsense offensive. It's not just self-proclaimed lefties who think it's a CANCER (see, anyone can be a Mail headline writer) on British society.

The Guardian is bad for different reasons (tax avoidance, strange support for Nick Clegg etc), but it will never be anywhere near as loony as the Mail. One or two writers aside, it's not even that left wing these days… more centre right with occasional leftism in the opinion pieces.

it has though, retained its unrelenting miserable demeanor and self-righteous indignation

 

Also to factor in: The popularity of The Mail , and as we all know, if something is popular, it can't be any good. Witness the forum's disdain of soccer, for example..and in some quarters of the forum, SuperLeague itself.

Success!

You can attack their party's social policies, you can point our the lunacy of present day neo-liberal economic orthodoxy, and you can even criticise St Margaret de Grantham, but nothing - nothing - provokes the fury of the hard-right more than having a go at their most treasured institution: The Daily Mail. :)

You seem to be reading a different thread. In this one, no one will admit to reading it.
