    Francis Bollocks is a top name though, I'm reading his stuff just for that from now on.

    That was all the Garys everyone was consuming instead.

    Clean for all the bloody migrants in their boats though, this Great British sewage wall will keep them at bay.

    Oh yeah, 100%, and they've all been getting worse.

    Essentially you've got your head around one idea, which is a good one, but are now blinkered to any others, even ones running alongside it in the same general direction, and it's causing you to come across as a bit of a bell who's happy to minimise other people's experiences of racism because you're 100% right about all the class stuff and that's more directly to important everyone all the time because you say so.

    Yeh but isn't it just as lazy to dismiss a link to Twitter without taking the 30 seconds to review someone's bio and see if they might be someone relevant and worth reading?

    Yeah, that's what I generally do, I wasn't dismissing the posted links, there's plenty to bash about Twitter, but plenty it does well too, this isn't so much about that. Just the unusual unwillingness to click a guardian link juxtaposed with posting of twitter stuff.

    But Ewan Birney or Oliver Johnson aren't random no bodies spreading anti mask, anti Vax nonsense, just academics giving middle of the road interpretations of the data

    Not saying those posters are good or bad, but they are just people on Twitter, which can be great for up to date information, but can also be full of crap, and posting links to Twitter but not wanting to click a guardian link just seems funny.

    Yeh I don't get the Twitter bashing,I get better and more current covid analysis on Twitter than anywhere else

    It's also rife with misinformation though, and old usernumber up there is happy enough to share seemingly random twitter posters as a good source of information whilst also refusing to click on guardian links in case they catch center-leftness or something. I get the avoiding the sun links because of solidarity with Hillsborough victims, or the mail because it's basically just hate for and clicks (I disagree with them as right wing shit rags too) but avoiding the guardian seems odd, it's gone downhill of late and if you're not much for center left politics it might not be your first choice of media outlet, but it's generally regarded as accurate and honest reporting as far as newspapers go, I'm not a fan of the times but will generally read stuff if it's not paywalled as it's at least got a reputation of generally honest reporting.
