Apparently my name alone frightens potential commenters.

"Good fat" is an interessting concept especially as it means coconut oil.

I have no idea why editors seek the opinions of Ms Elder-Holmes when they need some fluff to fill the space between the advertisements. I'm pretty sure that it's not because readers are besieging them with phone-calls and petitions demanding More Elder-Holmes Opinions.

Convenience, perhaps.

Also in the paper was the news that an occasional Riddled correspondent from a few years ago has received a restraining order for conduct unbecoming to a blogger:

I saw that restraining order and said Hmmmm a bit. And didn't comment at all.

So amphetamine use is not enough? I have to be busted for it?

Smut Clyde said...

Sorry, Mr McGravitas. I don't make the rules. For NZ media to take interest, you also need the proper Redemption Narrative about how you overcame your addiction.

For some reason P became identified among NZ journalists as a middle-class drug, and the illustrations for P-related stories were invariably photos of nice white well-off girls whose lives had been destroyed. So unlike other drugs, P users were victims of a medical problem rather than bad people. It was all the fault of the dealers (dark-skinned members of the criminal class). Was it the same internationally?

I think here you deserve your fate. Recovered addicts...can't think of one. Ford count yet?
