Quentin I have never met you and I apologise if this is offensive, but this
is one of the most the most simplistic, and fucked-up opinions I have ever
read. The kind of thing that gets touted in university halls late at night
- but at least drunk students have an excuse. I didn't take much interest
in the cleric's address, but it seemed he was questioning the age-old
obsession with money (read 'fast-buck IPOs'), and, er, that's it.

Discussions about the cultural effects of the internet industry seem
perfectly valid for this list, and it's accepted that the bullshit quotient
can hit a crescendo now and again, but can we get back to some more
relevant topics, at least to the list?

I'm with Tim Heyward when he posted:
