Yes - especially the second one. It's vague and meaningless because it has no actual definition.

The definition is clear and there is a thread about it. "Don't be a dick".

Also people who does passive-aggressive.

It may not show up here very often, but I am super passive-aggressive. Sometimes just aggressive. 

 

Mainly because I am getting old and quite cranky....

Handsome Dan is perplexed...and a little stir crazy.

That Netflix has dropped Grimm from it's line-up, internationally.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Buggy websites (again!).

 

I tried to create an account on a popular site, and it gave a generic "something went wrong; try again later" error. I came back half an hour later and tried again, and it told me that my email address is already used by another account. I tried logging in with the password I'd attempted to sign up with, and it failed. I then went to "forgot password" and entered my email address, and it told me that there is no user with that address.

Ive got that with instagram, and there appears to be no way to contact them to resolve it.

It is indeed Instagram. I don't care that much, to be honest.
