The closing line "So if we follow the BBC's decisions - which Bishop Manchester has elsewhere encouraged us to do - there is no doubt that he is both a Bishop and a wierdo." is pure comedy gold. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 22:55, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I spoiled the humour and corrected the spelling of "weirdo". Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 00:02, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey, nice work on our Sean Manchester article! Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:01, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

You left a link missing on one of the footnotes (about two previous BBC complaints). I've taken the footnote out for now, as that's better than a faulty citation. If you still have the url, please add it in & remove the {{fact}} tag. Thanks. WèàšèìòìďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 00:44, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Sorry about that. Fixed it.--Ostrum (talk) 10:18, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Actually, now that I look at it again I see that they are both decisions by OFCOM. Curiously both numbered "58".--Ostrum (talk) 10:23, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
The first one is Broadcasting Standards Commission, which was later taken over by Ofcom. By coincidence, they're both bulletin number 58 - of BSC & Ofcom respectively. None of them seem to be about the BBC: as far as I can tell, those two radio stations he complained about (Talksport & Angel FM) are not BBC-affiliated.

Yes, you're absolutely correct. Thanks for pointing it out. I think the initials "BSC" must have put BBC in my mind in some way. Weird that they are both "58".--Ostrum (talk) 12:42, 17 January 2010 (UTC)


Congratulations on becoming a sysop, Ostrum! You have been sysopped because you exemplify those fine qualities we value in sysops: being alive and breathing, being carbon-based, and not being a vandal!  : )
