Yeah, the “I was charged $2 too much for a pizza” article springs to mind.

I have no problem with this post – but it does make me think that RA needs some sort of article posting guidelines that establishes what is okay and what isn’t.

So if RA says posts like this are okay, then they’re okay and people should stop complaining and just move on.

I promise not to ever do it again.

BTW, I posted about 4-5 articles this morning. I haven’t seen them up yet.

Legit articles that is…

I think there’s a pretty big gulf between Opinion and Fiction.

Maelinar Maelinar 2:30 pm 19 Oct 07

Opinion is a big gray hole caf, incase you hadn’t noticed.

i think your cat might have eaten your sense of humour and imagination caf.

How is this load of cobblers passing for a story either Information or Opinion?

Canberra News, Information, Opinion, stuff Thumper made up and Witty Things Maelinar put in the Classifieds.

The shiny thing at the top of the page says news, information and opinion caf.

Perhaps you non-admin news only purists might want to read the 3 words following ‘news’ all the way up there.

And yes, before you probably ask, JB would probably have run with it.

Do people actually just want rubbish like this and the chance to sledge each other off?

Absent Diane Absent Diane 1:51 pm 19 Oct 07

Mutley that’s insinuating that genuine news reporting has actually happened on this site. 😛

“… it sort of detracts from the genuine news reporting done here.” Mutley – can you cite any specific examples?

I was going to make a comment in regards to the dying due to an unfortunate gardening accident but I didn’t want to appear insensitive.

Damn you Thumper.

Probably best to keep these to 1 April, as it sort of detracts from the genuine news reporting done here. There are enough people crying “This site has gone downhill since….” without something like this adding to it.

good work! love it.

You really are a tool aren’t you.

Even though he didn’t exist, he still supported the SIEV X and worker’s rights. The socialist bastard. I hope he rots.
