"No-one even mentioning the atrocious Taliban destruction of the Afghan statues of Buddha"
Yeah actually I heard something about that Yesterday on the radio at work. While it may be a terrible atrocity its nothing compared to the their treatment of the Afgan people (Its a capital offence to educate Women there for example).
"Napster is fighting for its life in the face of money and greed"
Apparently the on proposed New Napster the MP3's will have some kind of copy protection presumably to stop people using their MP3 files to make CD's
I would have considered paying for Napster provided
1) The speed and quality of the service was improved (e.g. a way of resuming downloads after a transfer error)
2) The money was going to ARTISTS as opposed to being swallowedup by te music industry
3) You were free to use the MP3's as you wanted
4) You werent restricted to credit card payment
"anyone commenting on France banning Irish livestock out of fear of f&m disease"
See the (various) F&M threads below.
"or even how terrible the lyrics of Craig David's song "Booty Man" is..."
I dont know I havent heard it. I rarely listen to chart music nowadays as 95% of it is over repetitive with moronic lyrics (God Im beginning to sound like my Grandparents !!!!!)
"Get rid of the chat room, I think. It hasn't been too beneficial "
It leaves the BB free for discussion threads so even though the quantity of postings goes down the quality improves.
"At least that's what I think... I'll welcome comments but it's more probable I won't get any"
Well you just have.
