Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
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.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
From today, I’m helping to turn the web red as part of the run-up to Red Nose Day. I hope that my readers will contribute to the campaign – contrary to how the top-right of the site looks at the moment, I don’t support every campaign going! I support Comic Relief as I believe they are experts at both raising lots of money and then distributing it wisely. I have supported them for many years, including on previous incarnations of this site. Don’t worry – everything will be back to blue again right after March 11th (except for the MakePovertyHistory ribbon, which is staying all year).
