Daily Mail circulation, 1,260,000.

The Guardian (seemingly the newspaper of choice here on Blatchat), 141,000 with the BBC spending £140,000 buying it.

Not too surprising when scandal and innuendo gives the gullible what they like to hear, as opposed to analyzing the facts in a news story. From a reputation perspective the Daily Mail tends towards the former, the Guardian the latter. Probably an indication that Blatchat has a higher proportion of thinkers who want to understand the facts (compared with the general population), as opposed to followers who can be fed any material without critical analysis.

It was a crass post, just take the hint and move on ...... plenty of other angles to go at within the overall subject matter

Yes. That's been observed and reported before. It's not you.

The thing is, when we post on social media no one can hear the inflection in your voice, your phrasing, see your facial expressions, vocal nuances etc. So in essensce, anything we post can be interpreted in several differnet ways. It's very difficult to be unambiguous when writing on social media. 

For examples of how to be unambiguous, read any legal doccument.

#84.  Sorry I don’t ,,,,people just read it wrong and came to there own wrong conclusions , but seeing some one told me how to edit a post I thought ,being a good little Yorkshire man I would make a few happy and altered the post ,so post no 43 ,should now be ok , I did it under duress ,cos i don’t like  being told what to do ,,,when I think I have done or said nothing wrong , but that’s just me Kay says I’m an awkward sod ,, she must no ,cos three weeks time it’s our 47 th wedding anaversary , time to go to the jewelers buy another watch ,worked out if I buy her a crap one ,it doesn’t last long ,,so no what to get her for birthday , Xmas ,anniversary ect , just put it in  a good case tell her it cost a bloody fortune ,,,,,not sure she believes me though 

time to move on BUT now I no how to edit posts ,,it may come in handy as I am sure to stick my bloody oar in again sometime and upset some one else ,, it’s just a talent I have ,it’s taken years to perfect but now got it mastered 

so as far as I am concerned that’s it on the subject 

but I shall return , 

as the vicar said to the prostitute
