There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

Boblet, you of all people should know better that "flogging a dead donkey". Move on to new pastures.

It is me again every once in awhile I harken back to the days of the Weekly gripe that I remember and post another gripe for nostalgia. I do not understand all this face book & twitter.

No luck I still receive a solid red bar. Maybe it is Kenny taking the piss.

I felt I must make an effort to comment on this important polling day. I am an abstainer normally. I refuse to vote selfishly. I refuse to say prayers for my personal benefit. I am also working class man. However, shall I vote today? and if so, for whom? that is the question. I would say at this juncture I disliked Thatcher, believing her to be both dishonest & selfish, but she would be perfect against the French & Germans to negotiate our Brexit. Theresa May is the second woman to hold the post of P.M. A canvasser has just walked passed my window. "Flash" I have just made my mind up. I will put party politics to one side and vote for Theresa. As a Christian woman she ticks the important box's. Religion, Honesty & Stubbornness, traits required at this point in time.

I tried again but had to go through the moderated gate with the above comment.

For me this is the comment that says it all :

"Updating your computer if you're an individual is a piece of cake, but for a network the size of Britain's National Health Service? Tough - time-consuming, expensive and complex. For a company like Microsoft to say it won't keep those systems safe unless they shell out more money, then that in itself is something of a ransom."

Organisations such as the NHS move very slowly, they only just rolled out Windows 7 last year where I worked. Their IT departments are so bogged down with bureaucracy it's inevitable they will be caught with their trousers down!

Due to the cyber attack on the NHS vital operations have been cancelled and patients have been turned away from A&E departments and GP surgeries.

Is it me or is there something very wrong with this scenario?

To become reliant on computers to this extent is negligent to say the least.

Owen Jones the political activist & Guardian columnist. I have to turn the channel over or risk throwing a heavy item at my tv screen every time he appears on a political news discussion. No wonder he removed himself from social media recently, i'm not surprised people feel the need to vent their "anger" at him! His latest attempt to sway the electorate in the Election will no doubt have the trolls trolling. I find him so arrogant & wish he'd just stick to posting his Cat fondling videos on Youtube!

What is "whinning" anyway? Is it a weird combination of whining and winning, someone who moans even when they've won?

"He needs as many people interacting with this site as possible to keep his sponsership going, so stop whinning GOW."

That's maybe how things work on Faecesbook, but not here.
