    Yeah definitely, will work out something to say and tweet it out. I assume that we're all decided on this but let's give it a day or so, just in case Breath and other regular posters want to have an input.

    Don't be silly, you don't slam with GHB. A mix of M and T works a right treat though.

    Banning links is a really, really bad mistake. To be able to fight the enemy, you have to know what lies the enemy is spouting. The fact that they might be getting a few quid for clicks is irrelevant and living in denial is the worst thing you can do

    Oh sorry, I thought most people would have voted by now. I've reopened the poll for a few days.

    While I do think that it might be useful to zero in on anything particularly heinous (eg. Jan Moir-gate or Littlejohn being a festering old cunt), at the moment the great enemy appears to be more focused on why chocolate is giving everyone cancer and Rita Ora's daring display of sideboob.

    Its worst moments are usually covered elsewhere, I didn't intend for this to be a full-on blanket ban on mentioning the D*ily M*il.

    If linking to the Mail is of utmost important just SCREEN CAP and steal their precious, precious content.

    I posted a pic from XtubeXtubeXtubeXtubeXtubeXtubeXtubeXtubeXtube earlier but put it through tinyurl and it worked fine. Not ideal though.

    Are we Tweeting about this? If so, I don't think replacing with "pornhub" is a particularly good idea, but the #stopfundinghate hashtag could get us some followers I reckon...

    It's worse than i thought:

    This character (or characters) will be used to replace censored words. For example, if you have censored the word 'dog' and you set the censor character here to an asterisk (*) then any occurrences of 'dog' in messages will appear as '***'.

    So stopfundinghate will make it appear fucking loads

    Oh. It doesn't look that bad as it's a link and so truncates.

    So this really isn't working. It was meant to be the links rather than every mention. Now we're just censoring ourselves.

    I can revert to links if you want. I quite like the concept of blanking them completely.
