Just edited a topic with a title "What do you think of this?" with something clearer in meaning.

 

Seriously @Rikkitic... I am going to start banning people that do this kind of thing. We don't need clickbaiting.

 

 

Sorry, I didn't do it on purpose. I will try to be clearer in future.

 

 

This kind of thing happens with an annoying frequency. From now on if I am on mobile I will just remove threads instead of fixing this things.

If I didn't spend the whole Saturday making things faster and safer, I would even laugh.

Dog poop on the pavement and the lazy bastards who don't clean up after their own dogs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have a female dog. She squats to pee. A guy was driving past while she was doing her wet business and shouted "You have to clean up the poop".

 

 

 

Obviously idiot doesn't know about dogs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You could take a paint roller tray out walking with you.

 



And do what when it's full?!

 

Carefully carry it home and tip it down the loo? It was meant to be a joke - albeit a piss-poor one.

Geektastic: Invercargill council for euthanasing dogs with a captive bolt gun.

Disgraceful.

 

If it's OK to kill sheep and cattle this way, why isn't it OK to kill dogs like that?

because sheep and cattle only exist, in part ,to be used as food and leather, they have to be killed. Dogs not so much .

The dogs in question had to be killed. In some countries, they'd be food and leather too.

The generally accepted civilised way to euthanise a dog is to call a vet.

Ads at movies. I paid to see the film, not be a captive audience for advertisers.

Posters who title their gz post, or start their post, with "So..." - as if there's been some sort of preceding causation, when there hasn't.

 

 

Posters who title their threads with just a product name "Spark MB76537 modem" and expecting people to have a crystal ball to let them know "Hey here's a thread I could help with"

 

 

Just edited a topic with a title "What do you think of this?" with something clearer in meaning.

 

Seriously @Rikkitic... I am going to start banning people that do this kind of thing. We don't need clickbaiting.

 

 

Crappy Email subject lines .. or email threads that eventually morph into something totally different from the original email content.

 

Typical example is a scanned image - either from a copier, or imported from a desk scanner, and just forwarded with the original scanner's subject line.

 

as in "FW: SC20170901099", instead of "Order from customer xyz"





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

A little-known fact: If you're using Outlook, you can edit the subject of received email. Double-click the message, then click on the subject line and change it. It looks like an uneditable label, but you can click and type into it.
