which has diluted the brand, they're basically a half step up from hoodies in the threat to daily life category

Can you be more specific about the pineapple? They vary in size quite a lot.

as long as there are people like A hero of our time about, swooning and clutching at their pearls every time one of these losers commits an act of violence terrorism will continue to be effective.

Was there ever any terror felt by the majority? I should argue not; it was a term inappropriately coined as a label to which the media could attach.

"Terror" is more appropriate, to my mind, to describe the guerrilla tactics recently being employed by these nutjobs, not the organised paramilitary discipline of that displayed, for example, during the Troubles.

what makes it a terror attack as opposed simply to an attack? "Terror", as currently bandied, is a term soundbittten to lump together relatively disorganised and ill-cohering nutters who simply want to cause damage.

I agree with the original post's sentiment. They've cheapened the brand. Like Ferrari letting its logo appear on baseball caps and key rings, or Hilton putting its brand on decrepit motels, ISIS are trashing their brand equity by claiming responsibility for petty bollocks like some pub brawler stealing a minicab and running people over on Westminster bridge.

The logical thing for ISIS to do would be to *deny* responsibility for this shizz. "We don't get out of bed for fewer than 250 casualties".

"You're not arguing. You're making unfounded assertions and ignoring all views to the contrary. You don't ever participate in discussions or arguments. You make unfounded, unprovable statements and repeat them over and over again in the hope of browbeating your opponents to death. There is no point in arguing with you. If you could stop being a such a sanctimonious prick for 5 minutes it would help but there is no hope with you. So why take you seriously?"

I posted the first thread on yesterday's attack when the news broke around 9pm. There were no replies for hours.

I think that's kind of the point...
