The moral police — 23 Comments

  1. Aah but these inspectors believe they will go heaven from the comfort of their own bed because the lead a righteous life and force, sorry, help others to comply.

    • They think they will live forever, but in reality it will only seem like an eternity.

  2. And I sincerely hope they are miserable

    I think that is pretty much guaranteed.  They are miserable now,  once they can no longer interfere in the lives of others, there suffering will become intolerable. 

    • Damn! "there" should have been their!  Please get an editing facility GD.

      • There, their and they're seem to be interchangeable these days. It's only us old pedants who seem to think it matters…

      • I had one once, but it slowed the site to a crawl.  I'll see if I can find another…

        There again, I love seeing that I'm not the only one to make mistakes.  😈

  3. Some would say that at my age I should know better, but what does that mean?  “Better” presumably means that I should be living my life according to their standards and that just is not on.  They can go fuck themselves.


    You echo my sentiments GD. I took no notice of the finger-waggers when I was twenty, nor when I was forty, nor when I was sixty, and if I make it that far, I will take no notice of them at eighty.  I drink, sometimes I get drunk. So the fuck what?

    The joyless ones.

    They are a pestilence on this planet, and need to be excised, just as any malignant tumour would be.

    • They are like the kids who haven't been invited to the party.  They are staring in the window at the fun inside and just want everyone to be as miserable as themselves.

  4. Speaking of moral police.. I received this email earlier to my POF account (that's plenty of fish.. aka plenty of ugly fuckers baten hard with the ugly stick)  from Markus – the site owner. 

    My name is Markus and I created POF/Plentyoffish. When I created POF, I wanted it to be all about finding relationships with the right person. For the first 7 years this worked really well, I got the site to 10 million users without any employees people and POF was generating a ton of relationships. Around 3 years ago, everyone started using the website via mobile phones. Today about 70% of POF use is via a mobile phone and unfortunately about 2% of men started to use POF as more of a hookup site mostly due the the casual nature of cell phone use.

    In sticking with my vision that POF is all about Relationships, I'm going to make a bunch of changes to ensure it stays a relationship-focused site.

    1. Any first contact between users that contains sexual references will not be sent. Anyone who tries to get around this rule will be deleted without warning. This rule has actually been in effect since last month and it's made the site so much better.

    2. You can only contact people +/- 14 years of your age. There is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old women. The majority of messages sent outside those age ranges are all about hookups. Anyone who tries to get around this rule will get deleted.

    3. Intimate Encounters will go away in the next few months. There are 3.3 Million people who use the site every day, of those there are only 6,041 single women looking for Intimate Encounters. Of those 6,041 women, the ones with hot pictures are mostly men pretending to be women. Intimate Encounters on POF can be summed up as a bunch of horny men talking to a bunch of horny men pretending to be women.

    In short the vast majority of people will not be impacted. This is because the vast majority of people are not going around spamming women saying "let's have sex tonight". I can't change POF alone, I need your help to get the word out there that POF is all about relationships!


    It's all just so anti lovin's.


    • Er, yes?  What the hell has that got to do with the price of biscuits?

      You're forgetting to take the tablets, Anne?

      • Ah fuck off GD. You're was on about forced morality.. it seemed related and I thought it was funny.

        Oh, you're just talking about/with old folk.. very sorry.

          • "relax Anne"  In about a half hour, when the pills kick in.

            Back on topic, sort of.. I think we should do as the Eskimos used to with their old folk – Send them off on an ice floe to perish when they could no longer contribute to society.



  5. You forgot to mention that some of these homes charge a fortune a week just to live there. Though galloping towards my sixties now, I have known wonderful old people in these places, that have forgotten more than the morons who supposedly mind them, have ever learned.


    My two children, 27 & 21 respectively, will still automatically stand when an old person enters the room, in deference to the wisdom of experience, and I like it like that.

    • Sadly older folk are nowadays just seen as a burden on society.  They are not economically viable units and therefore should be packed off and sedated somewhere quiet where they won't interfere with "real" people.

  6. Should there be Rules in a retirement home? seems to be the elephant in that report. Yes, there should be Rules – and the Rules should be negotiated between the retired people's union and the staff who work in those 'institutions'. The First Rule I'd insist on is that staff shall not treat the retired residents as little children. They are adults, their movements may in some instances be a bit bow-legged, but they've paid their social insurance and taxes where applicable, they've seen a bit of the world and nobody's going to tell them how and where they should have a good puff during their remaining years.

    Stop the incipient Bureaufascism. Aux barricades! Remember Limerick!

    • You're plenty of fish? I only want one or two tt..

      You mean you're on plenty of fish?  How old are you?

      Markus won't allow us to communicate if there's 14 years between us.  " You can only contact people +/- 14 years of your age. There is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old women. The majority of messages sent outside those age ranges are all about hookups"    
      Markus doesn't approve of dirty old men.. ffs!

      And it's Ireland.  Limerick to be precise. You'll be needing a flight to Shannon.  swing by shur. It's balmy here at the moment.
