  • How do I get rid of the chat window completely from my Yahoo email page?

    Its just been added without me asking and its annoying. Even when I am invisible, people see me as online, so I just need rid of it again. If I wanted to chat I'd use Messenger. Grrr

  • Is Heat magazine the symptom of an ailing society or one of the causes?

    Jade Goody is on the front cover once again. Heat has done more than most to promote the idea that 'thick' and 'shallow' is cool. Is it reflecting society or helping it down the slippery slope?

  • Has Endemol deflected the heat onto Jade?

    By focusing purely on Jade's 'racism' for a few days, have Endemol managed to deflect attention away from the real issue, which was why they tolerated bullying in the Big Brother house for a full week without doing anything to stop it. The racism was borderline, the bullying was not.

  • What are the best bits of Big Brother - the arguments or the comedy?

    People say that it is the conflict that makes people watch BB. Is this true? Sometimes BB makes me laugh till I cry - George doing the mime last year for example. Jermaine laughing during his tribute song was so funny. I find that stuff much more entertaining that watching Jade Goody bitching and crying (again)....anyone agree?

    Today there was two minutes silence to remember those who diedin various wars. WWII was a fight against the evils of fascism and nazism. It was understood then that we needed to stand up for tolerance and freedom from oppression. So why can't people now see what the British National Party is really all about? They are neo-fascists! They believe in racial segregation and in maintaining the purity of the 'White British' race. Follow the sinister link below. Much of the science is fairly accurate, but ask yourself why such an article is so prominent on the website of a modern political party. http://www.bnp.org.uk/articles/beans_gen...
