It's like how the police always investigate themselves and find in favor of their own 99.7% of the time.

Is that an accurate figure, or did you just pluck it out of your surveillance camera?

Generally, the UK ASA is a very stringent body and will clamp down on anything that is a bit nebulous or downright misleading, although it has clearly fucked up on this occasion.

Be careful, Cutter, personal comments like that get you whacked over the head with a swingeing arc of the good ole banhammer.

Ah, the delicious irony. Here we are discussing freedom and Cutter, bless his poor troll soul, has had his curtailed. Thanks Blue

I just want you to know that every time I see your avatar, I read your post in a John Cleese voice.


Lol, that's cool nin, I think I'll be doing that too from now on

Oh scary wary woo, now the powers that be will know that I occasionally look at videos of large breasted ladies and like watching classic rock videos on Youtube. Somebody lock me up already. It seems to me that the only people scared of this legislation are those with something sinister to hide. It's akin to that crap that's often spouted about how the UK is a horrible place to live as it is the most surveilled country in the Western world. Really? Well, I've lived here all my life and the supposedly Orwellian observation is completely non-intrusive. Unlike, say, a round from a semi-automatic AR-15. But we don't have many civilians wandering about with those over here.

I don't mean to be insulting, but after having lived about equal time interspersed in the US, UK, mainland Europe, and also a few years in western Asia, I gotta say that this is one of the dumbest comments I've ever read online. Like, it's at that teetering point where it might be coming from a place of absolute blind ignorance, or blatant trolling; and these days, it's really hard to tell which.

Seriously, it ticks all the boxes for a quote from a model citizen in some dystopic novel. Funny how so many of those take place in the UK...

I fail to see what your brief, text-based travelogue has to do with the supposed absurdity of my comment. Am I supposed to infer that living in western Asia (wherever that highly vague location may be) is preferable to living in the UK? Now who's making dumb comments. The fact that I live in one of the most surveilled countries in the West doesn't bother me one single bit. Really. But hey, please feel free to expend some impotent rage on my behalf

Popular opposition to the law has already provoked over 133,000 citizens to sign a petition calling for its repeal, and although that is unlikely to happen, the petition's motion must now be considered by Parliament.

133,000 out of 65 million people. Kind of says it all about how most Brits value their privacy and allowing Big Brother to do whatever they want. Very sad indeed.

Actually it says more about how this story has successfully flown under the radar and received little coverage since it first became an issue, but don't let that get in the way of your obvious attempt at trolling.

Not my bag, but if they gave it a Star Wars skin and called it Tatooine Crop Rotator I might warm to it, especially if you had to save Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen from a roasting.

Maybe at least people will stop whining about the US for a few minutes now.

Unlikely. The UK is an irrelevant player on the world stage compared to the US or China.

They could make forced anal dildoing at 4pm daily compulsory and no one would give a shit if a Kardashian nip slipped in a Walmart.

Speaking of which...have any of you seen the Daily Mail online?! Geezus, what a shit show of nothing but bullshit! Half of it is nothing but Kardashian this and Kardashian that. Makes me sick! Worse than over here in the US! The Brits need to get their naval empire back, I think they're losing some perspective...


=-Rigs-=

Ostensibly it's a trashy British publication, but it's pandering to a global audience, and more specifically, a US one, hence the frequent usage of US rather than UK English and the obsession with predominantly US celebrities.

So, you have to spend $1500-plus to play a game that looks like a rejected scene from The Lawnmower Man...no thanks, think I'll wait for the next VR craze, hopefully not for another 10 years or so.

It's always up to the people making mods to fix these games, I understand there is a pretty good one for IL-2 Cliffs of Dover.

No, you mentioned Cliffs of Dover, now I'll have to listen to this a few hundred times again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55nAwmVLQSk

I don't have a problem with Videosift ads myself. They may be embedding Youtube video most of the time, but they deserve some (financial?) credit for searching out (mostly) interesting clips.

I used to have problems getting my wife's kids to go to sleep at a decent hour. Then I started taking the router power supply to my bedroom when I went to sleep ( I worked early shifts) and the problem disappeared overnight. All it takes is a little parental discipline.

Doom was the first game I ever played on PC, so the very fact that it's got the DOOM name attached makes me a mite excited, even if ID doyen Carmack has long since scarpered to pastures new.
