Nobby feels all delicate, has a little moan and the fucking blog dries up completely.

You can only hope that all those people who happily put their names to posts slagging off people who post anon. will now actually post something every now and again using their own names.

For instance... what does sean cummins, nobby, siimon, etc think of Craig Davis chairing the Clio's?

What do they think of the Clio's?

Do they think that chick behind Craig is hot?

Are their creative departments carbon-neutral?

Or will their post-tally stop at one?

Hope not - because it looks like they've scared 90% of people from posting.

Course, 90% of posts were utter shite. But if I've learnt one thing watching tv all my life, it's that in popular culture, 90% of EVERYTHING is shit.

Nobby's just insecure. I reckon everyone got bored shitless of that being the only story on the blog for so long. One of the criticisms that could fairly be levelled at any blog is that we are guilty of examining our own navels. By spending so long and so much time discussing the blog itself, we've disappeared up our own navels (to put it politely)

As for this story, why don't we get that bloke with the sunglasses to chair this one instead?

If Craig David were to chair the Clios, that would be slicker than your average.

That chick isn't hot - for me personally at least. Although I'm sure she has many great qualities that make her an outstandingly beautiful person.

Hey blogsters. Let's hug.

I wish I knew enough about Craig to have an opinion. But I don't. So I'll just make "nice" comments about nothing important.
