It's because they're paying people to write shit like this:
that's worse than anything that has ever been in the Daily Mail ever.
(I saw that yesterday, it's a dreadful article)
Glad to clear this up, pal.
he tweets ALL THE TIME, he hashtags things in texts and in conversations and emails. i don't even know what a hashtag is (in this context) can anyone actually explain it to me?
Lisa Snowdon on capital fm says "hashtag awkward" when someone phones in with an embarrassing story
You just stick a hash (my keyboard doesn't seem to have one?) on front of a word or phrase. When lots of people do the same one (like, Olympics, or summat) it starts trending and what not. People have carried it over from Twitter and use it to emphasise things. It's the new wave of LOL.
that's stupid. it's just like modern italics or something?
if you're on a UK keyboard mac (maybe pc too but they have keys in all sorts of weird places)
I say 'defos' sometimes, is that really cringy?
I think I do it to stop people feeling threatened by me
i have already sourced some wood and am picking it up this weekend
In the plastic bag thread, about you copying exactly what the lady on radio 4 said this morning, that bags should be £1. I stopped myself because I though you would think I was picking on you or something.
Anyway I was just tryiong to save you the bother, I think you're too intellectual to do manual work.
you can carry on insulting me if you want, i don't mind too much but i think you are probably better than that.
i don't think there's any such thing as too intelligent to do manual work. there's something really good at manual work. especially if i'm doing it for myself instead of for boss/wage
i am a beginner
how was that meal last night?
but yes, totally photo updates will happen
oh i see.
doesn't bode well for the table making i'm afraid
Isn't it a year>? still a fuck tonne...
It's a live blog of an internal website development meeting!
Now that's transparency!
I am sooooo trendy
biters, I say!
From your mum.
that cat_race and some unknown yahoo have made jokes about my dead Mother.
both in print and online. Particularly online. It seems to be mostly a ranting space, like a modern-day livejournal dressed up as opinions and comment.
And the article comments! Jesus. Sometimes I wonder whether, if I had to go to hell and choose my punishment, whether I'd rather be stuck in a room of people that made comments on web articles from the Daily Mail or The Guardian.
and a lot more bigotry and handjobs to royalty in the Daily Mail Hell.
The guy has written practically nothing worthwhile
He got the shit ripped out of him in the comments section.
...even inciting one person to put my name next to Kim Jong-Il under the 'nepotism' pages of Wikipedia.
