Re: The POSSESSIVE PRONOUN topic

Just to clarify, I don't doubt Simon's good intentions, but I think the original post comes across a bit unsympathetic to those who are not quite so grammatically proficient but still contribute ideas worth reading.

Re: The POSSESSIVE PRONOUN topic

Sorry, it seemed to be that you were implying that dyslexia was a myth but reading back, I now see that you were not doing so at all.

Re: The POSSESSIVE PRONOUN topic

Well, I can tell you Squiggles, at least from my personal experience of a family member with dyslexia (admittedly it's not extremely accurate to base this on one case) they do struggle with spelling and do often fail to get it perfect despite exerted efforts to get it right. He finds it frustrating ...

Re: The POSSESSIVE PRONOUN topic

Considering an estimated 10% of people suffer from some form of dyslexia, it seems a little insensitive to be quite so patronising over simple spelling and grammar mistakes. I would like to encourage anyone to contribute whatever they can as whether their grammar is perfect or not, they can still co...

The Terminator - The problem is the politicians always claim that there are 'more pressing issues' to avoid legislation they don't want to implement and thus it never gets done. Issues effecting minority groups would never be sorted if we only prioritized issues which effect the majority, and I don'...

Re: Chessington Incident - 7.05.2012

As horrifying a thought as it is, it really doesn't take much for you to lose sight of a toddler in a busy environment, for all we know, the parent just looked one way for a second and turned back to see their child had disappeared. Also from what I've heard (although it may only be hearsay) it soun...

I can't really imagine an eventuality which couldn't be considered as Merlin's fault. This is a family park and as such, surely any raised platform should be child proof?

Re: Progressive musical discussion topic

There seem to be rumors of a Radiohead/Jack White collaboration after Thom dedicated their song 'Supercollider' to him at the music festival Bonnaroo: This one's for Jack White. We'd like to thank him. We won't tell you why ... you'll find out. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/livefrom/post/2...

I couldn't give a stuff for the Olympics but it is nice to have our country in the limelight for a change. What has to be remembered is when we won the bid there was plenty of money before Liebour spent it all on the public sector. The problem with socialists is they don't understand hard work, I h...

Re: The London 2012 Olympics Discussion

I do have a few issues with the Olympics... (surprise, surprise). My first concern is that they seem to claim to be some great force for good in the world and yet are willing to ignore severe human rights abuses of both competitor and hosting states. It's also notable that they participate in huge s...
