“Seasoned googlers, of whom there is already a vast tribe, are nerds, anoraks and braces-wearers of the worst sort who spend every working moment searching the infernal engine for other people’s blogs.
They are descended from a generation of titterers, pranksters and spokespersons of the bleeding obvious who in a more primitive era used to fool around with the office photocopier, circulating allegedly humorous material (“In these days of equal rights, why is Manchester not known as Personchester” ) faxed or posted to them by fellow-nerds who in turn had painfully copied the stuff from a parish magazine.”
“Thank God for one brave and fearless voice speaking out against the tide of mediocre thinking and blatant pornography. that is the so-called “world-wide-web”. My grandaughter was convinced to try this “googling” of which you speak by a schoolfriend and now she is pregnant. What I want to know is, what is this Government going to do about this nonsense, especially now foppish young Cameron has revealed it to be one of his unseemly passions? In my day, such an admission would have been a resignation matter. I’m disgusted.
