Another rant.

The usual and very common error of using 'of ' when it should be 'have' - as in "I could of done that" - annoys the hell out of me.

Now there's a variation. I copied and pasted this from the website of Sydney Morning Herald.

Seabee said...

anon, well it's my space that I'm wasting, so don't worry about it. And feel free to stop wasting your time in visiting.

DB, safe journey and have fun.

Thanks Seabee, I must admit, when I read what anon had written I thought it must be some kind of an in joke that I didn't get. Clearly not, wot an ignorant git!

In spite of South East Asian countries (Malaysia, Indonesia & Singapore) having strict laws, it still doesn't deter people, does it?

Or is it, old habits die hard?

As for Schapelle Corby, I still believe she's innocent. It's those baggage handlers at Melbourne or Sydney that should take her place.

I'd love to know who 'anon' is: what a dickhead.

That's the problem with 'Anons' isn't it? They get to be assholes without facing any consequence for their assholerly.

Having said that, I must comment what a waste of space Anons have become these days...

Seabee said...

Trolls and anons, who are arseholes anyway but now can demonstrate it internationally.

One of the downsides of the internet we all have to put up with.

Hey seabee...I was about to comment without reading the comments above but now I have, here is my response to them (what I orig. wanted to say will be at the end):

Agree with keefieboy. Anon...somebody in a morning meeting in some department with not enough kgs of sugar in their tea :P

alexander, the world is assholerty. (Blzzz stopped it da swaringz!!)

seabee, you are charged *of* swearing in the comment above of *your's* :P

So, back to what I wanted to say... You sometimes post "rant" in your title: I, however, consider you "tell it like it is". I love the way you write, and the news you bring, with your own "personal touch". Keep going. I am so happy I discovered your blog.

Bye for now...
