The last bastion of free speech in what passes for journalism in oor United Kingdom.
I have no idea how the Guardian hires its wee moderators; I do know any comments that disparage feminism gets short shrift.
So; responding to a comment on Edinburgh dialect, a London dialect person called me a 'dinlo*', calling them a 'rajcunt' gets me barred from the Guardian.
*No idea either.
**I was going to add such stuff as ' goat-fucker of Alexandria', but I'm sure Boris will get around to it eventually.

Apparently, "dinlo" is a Portsmouth area word, for someone that's stupid. So calling him a rajcunt is, to my mind, acceptable.ReplyDelete
Cheers Jim. I assumed it was some sort of mockney word 'innit'. But you know you are being insulted by the context.Delete
