For some reason.

It was probably some form of negative “euphemism” for woke, feminist or being “vocal” in the BLM movement.

Benedict Cumberbatch, he might be a perfectly nice guy for all I know but I just can't stand his face.

Used to be grand to talk to on twitter-now she jumps down your throat for anything you say. And it doesn't even have to be on her twitter- she's straight in there on a friend's page, with all sorts of 'if you were right next to me, you'd get a slap' talk.

I haven't interacted with her for a long while, and I had no negative experiences. But when I see her reactions like that (and this was long before Covid) I just think unplug from social media, walk away. It's not real life.

Dog-piling on people is not good for your or their mental health.

She's always been feminist-she went to the repeal rally wearing a black 'repeal' jumper. I have no issue with anything like that.
It's just going after people for something they say rather than just scrolling past and moving on.

Inexplicable but also explicable.

There's a guy on RTE who presents the weather, and he presents it like you'd present a radio show. Turns out he's a radio presenter-I didn't know, since I listen to podcasts rather than listen to the radio.

He talks slightly too fast, and doesn't give time for the information to sink in. If he's presenting the weather, I switch over to the BBC or Virgin Media 1 to get a better weather report.

She’s an absolute pain. Today FM made the right decision to dump her. She’s the classic jump on the bandwagon merchant.
