To be honest, I've no clue what point you were trying to make in the first place so I was kind of feeling around in the dark guessing.

I understood that you were upset that she didn't put a disclaimer on her tweet.

I countered that her using the word "apparently" took care of that, as in it didn't make it a definitive claim.

What was she supposed/not supposed to mention?

It was a tweet, not a white paper. Not sure why it's getting the forensic treatment.
Who says I'm upset? It's just a sloppy presentation, probably because it's quite a bit more juicy this way. Clearly there would have been enough space for the addition given that it was a multi-tweet "post" to begin with.

However, an immdiate dissolution of Parliament would mean that there were no MPs to pass a motion to extend Article 50, so we would drop out on Friday.

Not Friday, 12 April

Rumour has it that JRM, and therefore the ERG, will back May’s deal.

The UK government have responded to the Revoke Petition. See here.

Not unexpected.

This indicative voting could be fun. It may well be that nothing passes.

Here's another good reason why people like me voted to leave.

So you believe stealing people's intellectual property is a good idea?

Exactly. Many artists depend on sales for their living. Since when did "internet freedom" mean open house on stealing someone else's work? I wonder how Lolz would feel if he put in a full day's work, only to find that someone else (or many other people) had taken it without his permission and passed it around a few million people, possibly for their own personal gain.

Another case of not reading past the headline?

With such strong opinions on copyright, I don't expect I'll ever see either of you posting a picture, video, meme or gif in future that you haven't made yourself? It'd be a shame if I were to have to call you out on it.

Again, did you READ THE FULL STORY? Especially the part about memes and viral videos being excluded?

But that would leave you with nothing to post?
Oh, wait a minute? Not such a bad idea!

Yes, and did you read what came directly afterwards? Who defines what a "meme" is, and good luck trying to code an algorithm that does sorts them from everything else.

Good news that they changed their minds to exclude memes

I was originally very annoyed last year as you can see...

How about avatars? Should we ban unoriginal avatars? Am I the only doofus with my own pic in it?
