    Did you nominate them, Raymond?

    Well, yeah. I can only include the words that people nominated in the discussion phase.

  • Hard News: Word of the Year 2014: The Vote, in reply to Sacha,

    I'd say Gio got there first.

    Yeah, that's my take. It didn't really make sense to have multiple versions of the phrase, to I sett;ed on the hashtag one.

    There’s another one: Taxpayers’ Onion. Though it might have been a Freudian slip on Russell’s part.

    Oh no. It was very deliberate.

  • Hard News: Some reprehensible bullshit, in reply to Kyle Matthews,

    This looks like an suggestion for the Mayor of Auckland to use glass walls for his dressing and bathroom/toilet. Hence we found something sillier than the original HOS story.

    We can only imagine the response had he actually done such a ridiculous thing.

    I'm leaning towards the #dirtypolitics version.

    Oh I see I’m third or forth in queue for this one :-)

    No problem. Re-endorsements will help me sort out the short(er) list for voting.

    Is “At The End Of The Day” a word for these purposes?

    Yes.

  • Speaker: Why churches should marry…, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    Meanwhile The NZ Herald presents a quote – as if it were verbatim:
    “I pray that you will commit suicide, you filthy fag.”
    yet they edited some of the egregious material out without indicating that they had.
    Were they trying to water it down or what?

    I suspect they were worried about defamation risk in re-publishing an allegation of child molestation. Not with any real grounds, of course, but that's my guess.

    Ah. Here's a story on the design company that did the sex dungeon^H^H^H fitout for 135 Albert Street. Something about "bump spaces" and "casual meetings". Ooo-er.
