Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
was originally Murdochgate: US Grand Jury Set to Pinch Rupert for Bribery?, but that turned into arrested as I didn't think piched was right for US, then laughingly put breaking: in at the beginning. unfortunately that was the point the peoples house I was visiting had their network fail, and it's a case of rebooting the link, then rebooting the pc to get the software working from the caravan where they live.

By the time I got back online Armageddon was in progress with people being in full on arsehole mode.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Learned the very hard way that it's not a good idea to post anything controversial -- or poorly phrased -- right before leaving for a few hours.  At least you didn't get banned as I was after being there for almost ten years.  Only lost my TU status a couple of times.  First way back in late 2003 when Armando's gang of Clarkies were the site bullies.  Then briefly in 2004 when I had a dust-up with MSOC.  The ring-leaders in getting me banned have since been banned, but to the dKos powers that be that is as irrelevant to my status as being one of the earliest reader/commentators.

Jinkies, Scooby!
Sounds worse than (allegedly) wikipedia [citation needed].
