Broken lift comment trolling anger

Essex Echo: Disabled woman complains that council hasn't fixed lift at her flats for two weeks

And the second - entirely predictable and depressing - comment on the story: "Lose some weight"

If you ask me, the internet went downhill the moment they stopped the written entrance exam.

Like some of the commentards, I hooted at this bit:

"The breakdown of the lift, which serves the even numbers in the block, has led to more people using the rubbish chutes, which became blocked for four days".

Easy going down but hard work going up, I'd have thought.

Robin Of Locksley:
J G Ballard wrote something like that in 'High Rise'.

... even worse when retards post 'Loose some weight'.
I say, 'Ban the Mouse' and get back to some real command line interface work using only UNIX.

Des Pare, I didn't know that Ballard novel. Now I've checked it out, and I don't think that she (or her dog) would last long!

Arthur, I sometimes share your sentiments as I go right back to the pre-GUI, pre-web days of bulletin boards and Hayes codes. The likes of Amazon and ebay would not be so keen on it, though. |-)
