    @timd Oh ta! I will bear it in mind too. Certainly has fewer air miles on it!

    @holgate @tomcoates @katylindemann I'd have said the same about the UK, before 2 weeks ago. Never saw them on TV until now. Suddenly:normal.

    I am staying in "The Sputnik Room". I'm trying not to be disappointed but silver-painted wood can only suspend disbelief so long.

    What a lovely day with so many people. @warrenellis and Brian Aldiss ace in different ways at Improving Reality and BrightonSF respectively.

    Life's too short for phone-ins, comments on websites, questions from the audience. Do not discuss.

    @Zoonie Not getting into an argument on Twitter, especially when I'm already this angry.

    @iamdanw Oh, that makes me so happy! :)

    In the real world I don't expect anyone to block my view of, say, The Sun or Mail. Similarly, I don't want anyone blocking websites for me.

    @O2 Education, not censorship, is required. I live in the world and see things I'd rather not every day; I don't expect you to protect me.

    @O2 Thanks for your humorous response. Having my Internet access partially blocked without my consent makes me very, very angry.

    Oh @O2, you bunch of arses, filtering a comedy website because you don't know if I'm over 18. LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT THIS FACE!
