Don't go anywhere G , I think most of us take a break from posting in here at one point or another , I know I do anyway
When things get busy again , (whenever) , it'll feel somewhat better coming in posting after the days work is done .
If any of that makes sense !

The second offence relates to the way the recipient becomes hooked on the manner in which the coco-pops turn the milk all chocolatey, how you sit there gooey eyed and marvel as the pale coloured milk slowly turns to a bowl of chocolate heaven, captivating you in the process. Now you are hooked on coco-pops and will buy them forever more.
Cocos law aims to put a stop to this fiasco once and for all!

This is NOT to be confused with 'cuckoos law', which is a separate law deeming that anyone who owns a cuckoo clock in this day and age is either a very old person or a total nutter.
Her family knew her as Coco but her name was
Nicole Fox (aged 21) who died by suicide following years of online bullying.

Why would anyone disrespect or belittle legislation brought in to counteract online bullying and harassment?

Nicole's Mum fought tirelessly to help others bringing in the Harassment, Harmful Communications and Related Offences Act 2020, known as Coco’s Law.

Disgrace of toxic post degrading a family who fought for their daughter.

Shame on anyone thanking it.

A young girl died tragically and needlessly because of online bullying.

I really really don't think any disrespect or belittling was intended. Playing with words and making things light doesn't have to equal disrespect.

Edited as not intention to backseat Mod.

I've followed the work Nicole's Mum did in respect of Coco's Law and making light of it while not intentional would be upsetting for her.

If you have an issue with a post report it, don't backseat mod. anewme this is becoming a regular issue, if you don't rein it in further action at forum level will be taken.

I think Batman must have been needed for the enforcement of Covid legislation. I hope he's managed to catch a few sunrises anyway.

About to have my 4th beer!

Left Hand nitro stout on the other band is my go-to stout...yummy

Deskside with Strepsils & Lemsip - The breakfast of champions, eh?

At least now I know why I felt like an armed land mine last night…

I doubt it, given that my head is clogged up worse than the M50 on a particularly bad day. I think it‘s my standard-issue head cold showing itself again. It just had to happen during end of quarter review time…
