Katherine Doggrell

I'm not going to ring in the New Year defending Jeremy Clarkson.

Marc Paterson

I have a confession to make. I posted recently about my leaving Twitter. Well, it's true I did but the good people at Tweet central give you 30 days in which to chew on the prospect of committing social suicide and it pains me to say I did skulk back like a recently divorced man to his mother.

I have been fighting on behalf of the Sith Empire for a week now, and in that time I have come to appreciate certain things. Without wanting to catch too much backlash for this, I have to say that those things almost all fall into the "I am glad this isn't like WoW", or "I am glad this is the same as WoW" categories.
