All I saw was a complaint about paupers.

Cheapskates/Skinflints/Tightarses ≠ paupers.

From my experience:
Cheapskates/Skinflints/Tightarses = rich.
I do know some exceptions to the (above) rule but generally that seems to be the case.

Too true. The rich don't get that way by spending money.

I've long been uncontrollably enraged when somebody uses the phrases "Finally saw" to talk about a movie that's been in cinemas for about 3 days, or that is so obscure even the director's family hasn't heard about it.

However, this morning I've seen a perfectly tolerable update on social media that "watched They Came Together last night" ruined by the reply "you took your time".

AAAARGH, I'LL WATCH FILMS IN MY OWN TIME, AND NOT AT ALL IF I'M NOT INTERESTED IN THEM OR HAVEN'T EVERN HEARD ABOUT THEM. LEAVE ME ALONE.

Sorry, I realise it may just be me that gets upset about this.

…Posters constantly changing their usernames.

I'm sorry, but I should't have to go to your profile and look at your posting history just to try and figure out who the fuck you were posting as yesterday.

Bah.

I was really tempted to make the inevitable 'joke' of changing my boardname purely for this post, but I couldn't be arsed.  I'll let Sauchie/Butch/Whatever do it instead.

Bear... or Shark. Or BearShark. That's Sauchie isn't it, right?

I think they're all just Sc*j* frankly.

Sc*j* seem's to have finally shuffled off entirely. Haven't seen any incarnation of him across the net for a good year now...

but I fo agree with Jim, name changes are getting really confusing at this point.

He's hanging around the ECBT blog's comment section of late, going on about how Rob Williams can't write Dredd.

*sigh*

People who have badly fitted toilet seats which require you to hold them up with one hand while having a wee. Or worse, ones that you think are safely lent against the cistern but then drop down with a slam halfway through, splashing in the piss stream on the way.

There's also a worse possible outcome...
