1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't bother; I just read The Conversation's Fact Check the next day to find out which bald-faced lie was the biggest this week.

    The only interesting Q and A shows are the writer's ones and they've gone and spoilt this one by putting pollies on! For shame!

    Will sighting SF members on qanda become a regular thing? I was waiting all night for Foxhound to get up and ask about Gen Y housing affordability ("I have to post my selfies from my mum and dad's kitchen!", or maybe Olli complaining about foreign ownership of RM Williams and unskilled Australian manufacturing, ("The entire legal fraternity will have to look elsewhere!").

    Q&A like most TV is hopeless. I don't think I've watched more than a few minutes in the last year or so. Ernest audience members carefully chosen to be earnest and party aligned. Too many on panel spouting the party line and interrupting. Inane twitter feed across the bottom. Plonkers sending in video questions and no in depth discussion or policy debate. Occasionally I flick across from Housos to Q&A.. About all I watch are Housos, Louie CK, docos on cute fluffy wild animals and big ships. I did notice in advance to catch Tony Windsor on Oz Story - usually Oz story is a PR job on some dodgy millionaire but was almost good with Windsor - I hope he gets to be an election /politic commentator on radio somewhere..

    I don't mind Q&A.

    I always feel sorry for the Labor politicians - apart from the obligatory Tory, they'll be surrounded by a News Corp analyst who refers to the Coalition as 'we', a member of Amnesty International or the Greens and a comedian who sometimes takes pity on them.

    I actually plan on going in the holidays, DR. I was going to ask a question about where Australia is going after primary resources but I can run one on RMWs if you like.

    Foxhound can come with me - we can wear Morbid Angel shirts and camo.

    I forgot to mention that nearly every time I flick over to Q&A that dodgy intellectual giant Sophie Mirabella is on.

    The Tories have been very careful to gag her this campaign.

    You can see the bunching at the shoulders.

    Disappointing. I wasn't expecting this.

    I've learned my lesson - make sure the suit fits at the shoulders.

    I watch cable for the both the HBO content and as of next year first run BBC content. As for politics on TV fuck it waste of time, I just listen to ABC AM and the 8:45am news that does me for news, given up on ABC 7pm news as all i do is swear at politicians,. Anyone watch Man on Wire the other night? Great story and welcome relief to all the election bullshit.

    Thats disappointing dude, that bunching would put me off wearing it.

    I think from time to time we all think we can save our old stuff. I pulled out my first tailored suit lastnight and gave it a try on, anyone would think I had it made up in the 80's, so much shoulder padding. I too was contemplating having the passing removed and a couple of other things but I think best to cut my losses and put the money towards a new one.

    Not at all and typical neocon attitude at its best i must add. I am simply fed up that we have to wade through the bullshit that emanates from the mouths of idiot politicians who claim that they have the public interest at heart.

    Shoulder alteration is one of the hardest to perform, to do it probably the sleeves have to be taken off and the shoulder seam open up and then tailor then should do a fitting for you. As you already know it's a very costly exercises and I woulds only go to the best bespoke tailor to have it done.

    Labor politicians get rousing applause each week on Q&A for consistently inane, overly emotive comments that ruin any chance for meaningful discourse about policy, economics or ideology. You feel sorry for a Labor politician on a show which has a dominantly young, progressive leaning audience (both live and televised)?

    The stats shown each week on Q&A with the Labor/Liberal split in the audience are a farce. I have countless progressive-minded friends who know that their best chance to pass the ballot for the live audience is to say they vote Liberal, which is what they say every time.

    Having said this, the non-standard studio audience last night in Melbourne was filled with an equal split of Liberal and Labor hardline, unwavering automatons.
