Out of the Blue

Apologies if you had trouble reaching us earlier today. We had a couple of overseas bots behaving badly, with one from Russia going particularly nuts, so thank you to Frans for taking care of them. This isn't too shocking, as there may be more bots than users on the internet these days. But it's surprising how poorly coded some of them are. The typical goal is to scrape data and get onto the next site, so acting like a DDoS attack and getting your IP banned is clearly not the goal. But as I say, with so many of them out there, I guess it shouldn't be surprising that some of them don't work properly.

You need to get a better agent. Imagine how the makeup artists feel?

"Is it legal to ban TikTok?" The people interested in banning it don't give a f*ck if it is legal or not.

If you must have singers falling down stairs they should at least have baked goods. Oh, and teach you to count.
