I'm sure the headline at the time I saw it said "SWAT attack" which sounded far more interesting.

Where there's spite, nastiness and venomous bitter types there's brass.

The PCG once paid one of their founders £500k for "Internet Services", it happens.

Never underestimate the power of large numbers of stupid people - with credit cards.

Even ARRSE are scared of Mumsnet! Mumsnet is populated by harridans and lesser demons! Be very afraid!

I thought we were banned on our last visit they when we just tried to explain why the scam a poster had failed to pull off was so obvious even the home office saw through it.

How stek managed to keep his account I will never know

I got banned from there without even visiting it apparently. Someone else using my credentials... Just like on the Ashley Madison site...
