    When I was a yoof, the term applied to seat sniffers was “poon”.

    Selectively editing other organisations editorials hardly does you or Crikey any credit.

    If you feel the need to quote another organisations work, you should at least provide the context and the full quote, rather than selectively quoting to suvert the nature of the editorial

    Stones and Glass Houses Mr Farmer.

    I read Farmer’s bit on the Australian’s editorial as consciously mischievous, but for those who found that too subtle he gave a link to the editorial which exceeded the Australian’s lamentable standards for bias and incoherence.
