Heh - no, I already had it saved in my Glin Bin folder of cruel images. It's from about a year ago, if you go and look at his tweets from that date it should match up with the card. There are a couple more, if you search Twitter for 'glingo'

Amazing. How big would an encyclopaedia of post-bananas Glinner lore be at this stage

Ask Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse, she writes and edits one about once a month (thanks, PBGC!)

Borderline stalking and more attention than he deserves, which is why we're not doing it

Don't wanna talk over wrec or anything, but I don't think they were being as serious as the above responses suggest

Hopefully the editors will see it as proving the articles point

I'm sure wrec was just thinking aloud. However Graham is a litigious fucker who reads this or has people who read this and tell him about it. So. For any of them. Or him. No. We're not doing that.

Why was it taken down, do we know? It didn't seem to be an attack on anyone.

Kathleen Stock pointed out some factual errors written about herself (including referring to her as 'Katherine') which I'd accept (through gritted teeth) was a valid complaint. I'd guess it has something to do with that.

Hi Graham, you're an abusive cunt and a bully. Get the fuck off Twitter before it somehow does even more damage to your miserable existence. Cheers xxx

That gang can either misinterpret through stupitity or through being maliciously disingenuous*.

I wasn't thinking aloud so much as making a throwaway and pretty banal (and I would have assumed impossible to misinterpret) remark about the fact that saying something as daft as "Glingo" brought up an existing meme, and the reactions to that are ridiculous.

I think being litigious means actually suing someone, rather than saying you're going to and never getting around to it.

It's the legal version of the difference between being involved in a pub altercation and hiding in the corner.

Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse

@wrec I didn't think you meant anything other than "boy he's been insane in the plantain forEVER" and I sincerely apologise for making you feel you were being attacked or singled out. I just felt it was best to say something because Glinner is aware of the threads, and because there's been talk before (not by you) of keeping receipts and adding links etc. which could land the forum in hot water.

Oh absolutely. Graham throws a hissy fit when people accurately repeat stuff he's said, in writing, on Twitter, for anyone to see. And he hates being described as a transphobe, even though that's what he is.

But (and this is not directed at anyone in particular) we are walking a fine line between stalking and pointing and laughing. I don't catalogue every stupid hateful thing he says, or every wank "Bawww I'm Cancelled" event he attends, or every celebrity he desperately tries to goad into a fight, or every lawsuit he says he's involved in. Firstly because the opening post would be thirty screens long, but more importantly because it would look excessive and stalkery. Not just to outsiders, but to people here who don't like these threads. There are almost no dates in the timeline for the same reason. I will never add links or receipts. It's an oral history, if you like, of how he went from successful and beloved comedy writer to an utterly banana-brained cunt.

The timeline will be cut down further for the next thread.

No worries, and I appreciate that. It just felt like it escalated quickly to my alarm!

No harm even just to save you a lot of thankless admin.

I'm wondering how many Pride marches Graham has attended in his life.

He's really hoping this happens because it'll give him license to insult gay people for celebrating their sexuality.

Kankurette

I can guarantee that if that happened, Linehan and his right-wing friends would scream about how the gays are corrupting Our Children and why can't Pride be respectable. Loads of them complain about leather daddies and anything remotely kinky.

Róisín Murphy was on RTE's The Tommy Tiernan Show the other night, I switched on halfway through the interview and didn't actually cop who it was until Tommy announced her doing a song. As I say I didn't catch the start but it's beyond unlikely her trans views came up at any point.
