And a bloody useful practice it is too, especially since it’s become non gender-specific.

Mate, I think you’re being a bit harsh.

Speaking of mates, I see Rex’s “mate” Andrew Landeryou still reckons he’s really a sockpuppet for Evan Thornley!! It gives you a pretty fair idea of just how soundly based (not) most of Landeryou’s breathless conspiracy theories really are.

Mr. Landeryou has been inclined to exaggerate my influence for some time. Not that I’m fussed by it. It’s good to be known for something.
