A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

So that is Morano on the left?
And is that Jonathan Leake carrying the briefcase with the stupid slogan, or has Watts shaved off his mo?
Keep it friendly please.
Come off it. Where is your sense of humour?
I think it's the use of "stupid" I object to. I know it seems like a little thing but it sounds like petulance and is the kind of thing that leads to shouting matches. If you had left that out I would have been amused.

Sheesh. I apologise for any offence given to the stupid slogan. I'll use smileys in future.
By the way I'd be more convinced if you addressed such remarks to commentators on your side of the aisle.
It makes me think of Alan Greenspan's famous phrase that echoed through the investor forums back in the IT-bubble days in the 1990s: the "irrational exuberance".
According to Wikipedia, "The phrase was a warning that the market might be somewhat overvalued".
Subprime was just another bubble that finally did what bubbles are supposed to do: burst.
I wonder if another famous Wall Street phrase soon will apply to Global Warming Ltd.: "Take the money and run."
PS Bishop: Great blog in great times. Hope you get some sleep, though.
If I've missed something feel free to point it out.
You shouldn't be so sensitive about "stupid". As Albert Einstein said, "The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and human stupidity." So one way or another, you're going to encounter a lot of "stupid".
Better to focus on something you might be able to fix, like ignorance.
Sorry if O/T, but this Guardian article may be interesting to readers here :)
