Anyone Else Beginning To Notice?
Permalink  
 


...the number of people coming onto this board whose first post is some nugget of info they've got to slag off Geldof with, & whom we never seem to hear from again thereafter in any other thread - at least, not under that name!


Folks, if your soul raison d'etre for coming on here is to indulge in a bout of Yaa-Boo-Sucks towards anyone having the audacity to like the guy's music, do yourself a BIG favour, get yourselves a life off the Internet, for your own sake!

How are my posts negative?  I have differing views and back up all my claims with hard facts, not just emotion.

Easy, guys.


 


He is just offering his views. How can he shove them down your throat when he lacks power?

I'd be interested to know why people do feel the need to come on here and register just to slag off Bob. OK everyone is entitled to their opinion, but why come to a fan site? Most of these people seem to throw a bit of fuel into the fire and then leg it! I don't know what they are expecting us to say or do? Anyone care to enlighten me?

Tango, get a clue.  Slagging is UK slang.  spc1970 seems to have made it clear that (s)he's American, and asked a reasonable question.  In fact, if (s)he'd looked it up the dictionary, this would have been the likely result:


The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary. Click on a spelling suggestion below or try again using the search box to the right.

Suggestions for slagging:

1. slogging
2. slugging
3. sagging
4. slanging
5. snagging
6. sledging
7. smuggling
8. snugging
9. serging
10. Soong Ai-ling
11. snuggling
12. sniggling

Your presumption was incorrect.   I'd never heard the term (along with many, many others) before hanging out around HERE.

I'm not sure what's going on here, but US English is very different from UK English. Unlike here in the UK, Americans are not exposed so much to our version of the language via TV and films.

The term is really slagging off as opposed to slagging, btw.

Kids!
I don't know what's wrong with these kids today!
Kids!
Who can understand anything they say?
Kids!
They're disobedient, disrespectful oafs!
Noisy, crazy, dirty, lazy, loafers!
While we're on the subject:
Kids!
You can talk and talk till your face is blue!
Kids!
But they still just do what they want to do!
Why can't they be like we were,
Perfect in every way?
What's the matter with kids today?
Kids!
I've tried to raise him the best I could
Kids! Kids!
Laughing, singing, dancing, grinning, morons!
And while we're on the subject!
Kids! They are just impossible to control!
Kids! With their awful clothes and their rock an' roll!
Why can't they dance like we did
What's wrong with Sammy Caine?
What's the matter with kids today!

This is Flight of the Conchords - "Think About It, Think Think About It"


 


 


Children on the streets using guns and knives


Takin’ drugs and each other’s lives


Killing each other using knives and forks


And calling each other names like dork


There’s people on the streets getting diseases from monkeys


Yeah, that’s what I said, they’re getting diseases from monkeys


Why’s this happening? Please? Who’s been touching these monkeys?


Leave these poor sick monkeys alone – they’re sick, they’ve got problems enough as it is


 


A man is lying on the street, some punk has chopped off his head


And I’m the only one that stops to see if he’s dead


Oh…turns out he’s dead


(That’s why I’m singing)


 


Oooh, what is wrong with the world today? (What’s wrong with the world today? Mumble)


Oooh, what is wrong with the world today?


Think about it


Think about it, think think about it


 


Good cop’s been framed and put into a can


And all the money that we’re making is going to the man


What man? Who’s the man? Where’s the man? A man?


Why’s it so hard to be a man? Am I a man? Yes, technically, yes…


They’re turning kids into slaves


They’re turning kids into slaves just to make cheaper sneakers


But what’s the real cost, because the sneakers don’t seem that much cheaper


Why are we still paying so much for sneakers


When you’ve got little kid slaves making them? What are your overheads?


 


Well, at the end of your life you were lucky if you died


Sometimes I wonder why we even try (Why try?)


I saw a man lying on the street half dead


He had knives and forks sticking out of his leg


He said, “AAHHHH! OWWW!


Could somebody get the knife and fork out of my leg please?”


(Could somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees?)


 


(They break it down)


(Then they bring it back)


(Then they fade out)

Hmmm... and there are non-native English speakers here... If I'm not wrong, there are people from Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Japan, Malta, Hungary and Germany here... At least, if not more countries, sorry if I forgot anyone... I mean just for the record! We're here too.

In that case, who was your anger aimed at, exactly?

Interesting that you're not willing to say it straight out.

It does.  It's often better to simply speak your mind than use backhanded insults.  I'm confident that spc can handle the criticism.
