It would be fascinating to try that out on the free and fair market maintained by the FSA in the market for shares in barclays Bank currently.

Somebody's tardis is fucked

OtOh Max Hastings' tardis is in perfect working condition and ready to fire on up...

"For two decades, while we have been a greedy society, we have also flattered ourselves that we were a compassionate one. We threw money at all sorts of supposedly deserving causes, because we thought we could afford it. In future, Britain will have to become harsher and nastier, because there will be no money to be anything else."

I suspect he ejaculated at least twice whilst writing that

The Leader of Lambeth Council, Councillor Steve Reed, has welcomed a government move paving the way for the return of local authority mortgages. The Government cut the minimum interest rate that councils can charge homeowners, with a reduction in the national standard rate from 5.07 per cent to 3.93 per cent. The council will now explore this new opportunity, working with other councils and partner financial institutions. This was one of the proposals outlined in the report of the Council’s Credit Crunch Task Force due to be considered by Lambeth Council’s Cabinet in February.

I realize you have left this behind, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with this thread, but you might find a wee bit of momentary entertainment Stef from the implosion of your old playground and the shattered bits now laying about.

@An Olde Chum

After my main filckr-account was deleted by the ever friendly staff, I added flickr.com (together with yahoo.com and some other yahoo-axis-of-evil websites) to 'Adblock Plus'. Initially, it was so I could not post anything I would regret with my second account (I wonder till today why that one escaped the purge - after all, the ban is, as by their TOS, against the person).

Then, quite fast, my censoring of flickr got a different meaning. As my photos disappeared without a peep, I wanted to see what it's like, if something is missing. Rather interesting to get a google search result and see all this white space instead of photos - all photos that could be potentially erased by decree (or rather without). But it turns out, the Internet does not revolve around flickr...

BTW: It took me over half a year to get even a word out them WHY the fuck they deleted my first account. Writing "flickrmail" yielded a answers, but no information as to why. Asking questions in the "help" forums only got me banned from it - and I was as polite as I could be in that situation. And no question, my second account got NIPSAed without a peep.

Now, only from time to time I have to switch off Adblock to see some image from flickr.

Yes, I provoked them, it was my attempt to protest their actions. I certainly used the wrong words on my photo-stream. Yet, I still think that their deleting my account together with my photos, comments from friends, comments on photos of friends, my favs, my group-memberships, my "flickrmail" and so on, WITHOUT warning was unwarranted and excessive. Fuck em, fuck Yahoo and all those little (and once good) web-corps they have swallowed, I hope they get humped by the economy, I hope they get humped very hard, I hope they get smashed to pieces and vanish to obscurity.

Hello Old Chum

I didn't so much leave it all behind me as get dragged away by unfortunate circumstances. I only had enough time for this blog OR the joys of on-line phototrolling

Much as I enjoy on-line phototrolling the blog won

Thanks for the links. I shall peruse them at some point in the not too distant future - if and when I get off a plane safely somewhere far away from where I am now

I might even pick up my cameras in earnest once more. I did actually refresh my Flickr account the other day ;)

@parabellum

Can I just thank you for the truly heroic amount of quality material you've posted on this blog

I'm a little behind in catching up on the last few things you've posted but I'm downloading them now for consumption mid air

and as for Flickr, as soon as they got all corporate and NIPSA'd my ass the love affair was over

I do miss the days when you could open multiple troll accounts and post pictures of raw meat on the vegetarian groups or join the 'Stop Genocide Now' group in the name of your favourite dictator

*sigh*

Happy, carefree times...

The latest flickrmail to hit my inbox...

:: Cottaging Group
Hi just joined and added to this group of which u r a admin. How come the group if full of stuff (ie rally cars people on sun beds !) that has nothing to do with cottaging ? Could someone tidy the group up and make it full of content that relates to the group please. No point in posting my photos in the group else.

Nah, the pleasure is mine, I really enjoy reading your posts, it's the least I can do to contribute a bit that you (and others) might enjoy. Besides, I stole most from other blogs... :-)

Ah, the fun of discoverying NIPSA, finding out that you have been censored without an explanation why.

And then they introduced filtering, so people can avoid getting NIPSAed by self-censoring their content - ah what whacky fun. Well, it is better to condition people early on that content has to be filtered - so much better than hitting them with the hard hand, indeed.

.

I feel like one of those dissidents from the cold war era. Whenever somebody mentions something vaguely socialist I get all agitated - sigh. Fuck flickr.

You've done more than your fair share too, Stef. :) Take care out in NZ, yeah?
