    oops, that was supposed to read "cack" myself.

    Cake myself sounds a bit rude.

    Well David,

    If you wouldn't have been able to work out that it was Beckham and wife, you are not really one to judge anything.

    Lynchy, could you please tell me why you didn't publish my post on the Real Estate Ad by Cummins and Partners?

    What was wrong with it?

    It wasn't bitchy, no foul language etc etc....just a legitimate observation as to why it doesn't work for me.

    Is this supposed to be an arena for debate or what?

    Why the negativity?

    It's more entertaining than 95% of other ads on TV at the moment.

    Isn't that our job?

    If you're not going to allow anonymous comments, try to filter out things like 'where's Furby' from various posts.

    I think it is sometimes used ironically.

    No mate, you're supposed to sell stuff. Remember? Leave entertainment to the professionals.

    My question is: Why the lack of negativity?

    It makes the blog a lot less interesting. But we all seem to have gone a bit pussy.

    Mind, not many people seem to be logging on anymore- or certainly not commenting.

    Plenty of people logging on (1500+ a day and growing), plenty of anonymous comments, but not many willing to put their names to negative comments. Yes, the commentators all seem to have gone a bit pussy.

    It's all well and good to make snide asides about how people who comment without using their names are cowardly but the logic only holds fast when you're talking about people like Nobby.

    He's hasn't got an UberNobby sitting above him ready to shit on him if he says something which represents that agency a way he doesn't approve of. He is the agency.

    Where does this leave the junior or mid or even senior or suit? Can they really speak their mind and then sign off knowing everyone who reads it will know where they work? They might have any number of valid opinions (and incitful ones too) which they keep under their hats at work because that's part of the job.

    If you demand that everyone leaves their name at the door, all you get are people who respresent the agency, whatever safe approach that might happen to be.

    Let this be a reflection of what the internet is, an unregulated environment. Stop trying to prissy people into signing up like it's some kind of town meeting. It's not.

    Apologies for being serious, but I'd be interested in knowing whether celebrities need to be paid for use of their likeness?
    Can someone who worked on the campaign let me know?
