I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Analysing the phenomenon further, she said: “Reality TV is not the end of civilisation as we know it it is civilisation as we know it.”
