    I'm not even sure if the editors realise, that people will just start visiting other news websites.

    Vienna Boys’ Choir caught up in *** abuse scandals -Times Online

    Not so much for the content (awful, awful stuff), but for the worst possible choice of journalist to cover it.

    Yeah, she's fine. Was coming back from a Liverpool University open day with my dad and step-mum in the car. All were fine but the car's written off.
    Was the second write off in 6 days though as my dad crashed my other step-sister's car last Thursday. Worrying omen considering my first driving lesson is next Thursday

    I gave a neutral comment on eBay once. The seller hounded me for weeks until I eventually damned the **** with faint praise.

    eBay wouldn't be very happy with that. Undermines the whole system pretty much if people are too afraid to give negative feedback.

    I've negative feedbacked a few people - mainly because they were uncommunicative ****s. They remained uncommunicative afterwards however.

    You can list your rebuttal to any criticism though, and it comes up when people look, so its not you have no recourse. The best one I've seen was:
    - "Never sent item"
    -- "Because you never paid"

    Anti-rape condom ready for SA World Cup | Radio Netherlands Worldwide

    A South African doctor wants to distribute 30,000 free anti-rape condoms for women ahead of the football World Cup. Dr Sonnet Ehlers first developed the special condom five years ago and says it is now ready for widespread use.

    The Rape-aXe, as it is called, is a condom women can insert themselves. The interior has tiny spines which, in case of rape, attach to the man's penis.

    Dr Ehlers emphasizes that they do not draw blood, since this would increase the danger of HIV infection. However, they do cause a great deal of pain if the man tries to remove the condom. The condom has to be removed in hospital, she says, which means the rapist can immediately be arrested.

    Critics argue that the Rape-aXe could work as a provocation and the rapist is likely to become more violent when he realises he has been trapped.

    The anti-rape condom is not yet available in the shops in South Africa and has not yet been tried out on test subjects.
    This is probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of.

    I'm sure the ladies must be flocking to the ticket counters for the World Cup now that this amazing product is available.
