major kak-a-rama..

I think the predicting who's going under is a little on the tasteless side - but this so often happens when people/sites have an inflated view of their own importance...

looked a coupla times but its total garbage-a bunch of non stories and a total waste of time-wont be visiting again.

too many people enjoy flame wars on there too-a bunch of sad keyboard gangsters.

Same outcome for me this morning. Last Thursday it was allowed through the over-zealous nanny proxy/firewall, but today it is blocked.

Similarities with toilets & deposits not intentional.

3rded!!

There's been lots of discussion on HUKD about this site and the content (swearing etc), those in favour usually answer by saying 'if you don't like it then don't read it'

That's not helped by the fact that it's staring us in the face everyday on HUKD

I think it belittles the site

feral trolley of the week :oops:

I have a quick read now & then .. not great tbh but sometimes it gives you a lol !!

its owned by them off here, makes a mockery of the swear filter on here :roll:

i usually find it very boring, however their latest deathwatch thing has caused some controversy and ive enjoyed winding ppl up on that post.

I enjoy reading BW, or I did until it became blocked as a social networking site (Same as ODB). Gives me something to read when I'm bored.

It's a bit like the Daily Star edited by 14 year old boys. You can laugh at them not with them. :whistling:

Is it possible to belittle a site that has threads about pretend weddings and counting to a million?

Go on you'll have to tell me now, what's a 'pubs' ?:thinking:

It is where they pretend they are in a pub, I am not joking.

You are on to something there kungfu, but the 'bitterness' is not that at all. It's reflecting back an attitude, in reverse. It's not my fault if people find their own medicine bitter (ha double ha).

the good thing about bitterwallet is that if u have thrown out ur newspaper 4 days ago and wanted to find out about the main article again, all u need to do is check bitterwallet, itl be the (not so) newest story.

Liddle ol' me;4267801

Thats because the last time I popped my head in to find out about the 3 day old stories they were virtually copy and paste jobs from other sites with a little reference at the end.

It is poor and the seeing who will be next to lose their jobs thing is really tasteless. I just hope that nobody close to those revelling in in the current climate end up on their uppers.

is it as sick as the " which celebrity is next ot pop their expensive designer clogs" sites

True, not every word is written by the team, but we must have different ideas about what constitutes original writing . It's their sardonic take on the material that is their trademark (and originality) in my opinion.

And I don't get the 'tasteless' accusations tbh. In fact, it bothers me that people are afraid to talk openly about these things.

This immediate rush to censor and close down conversation isn't helpful. Yes, people are losing/will lose jobs etc, and that's not something to be applauded, but why let these emotional issues get in the way of the conversation? Knowledge is power and all that malarkey...

Oh the irony....

Irony?

I like BW myself, some very good articles, especially some of the original material ones. Some are a bit pointless but not offensive. Surely you guys must see its imperative that the consumer has a good idea of which stores are close to bankruptcy - too many people have had their fingers burnt by the collapse of Empire Direct, Land of Leather, XL etc - its a consumer website and to know or speculate which stores are vulnerable is a key consumer issue at the moment...

Yes jobs will be lost, thats what happens in a recession, but are we meant to ignore poorly performing and poorly managed companies with rubbish CS just to avoid offending the unfortunate members of staff who might lose their jobs? Of course not!

Trust you to be sensible about it :roll: [ ;-) ]

You aren't northy by any chance..?

Nope, agree with his point though!

Would I be right in assuming you would get suspended / banned if you cut and pasted some of the articles and replies on to a thread in here? Even though it's the same site?
