Well, a big problem is the bystander effect. People want magical results without having to contribute to the change. Also, someone's been creeping through gap's post history since that was a year ago.

Nothing wrong with answering a post from a year ago if the poster is here now and would read the reply.  However even if they never logged on again they could still read it as a guest

Lust for Life, Slantrhyme

That indirectness and wanting other people to read your clues/mind is sometimes really annoying me too. I have found it in British people but also in certain types of personalities regardless of their background. Mostly ones with low confidence. I prefer assertiveness. Being assertive among 'polite' indirect people you can easily be called aggressive!  ::)
And what about their false politeness - it is like they impose some bad trait on you because their own inadequacies.

Why has The Guardian changed all its colours on the app. I’m not sure I like it.

 I hope they don’t go like the Indi. Some of that stuff is a bit sensationalist nowadays and it annoys me. While I read the guardian partly through confirmation bias I admit, I do find them to be a bit more informative than other publications, shall we say.

I am not happy with any newspaper today. Quality has deteriorated so much. Clicks and money is the motivator.

it's gone tabloid.

Oh, I see. I hope they don’t go like the other papers too. It sounds like they’re changing quite a lot. I will have to pick up the paper this weekend and see what it’s like.

^ They’ve got an article in the app about how the UK still has time to change its mind about Brexit. I really hope so but can’t bring myself to think there could still be a chance as it’s so depressing when things keep continuing on their current crash course despite all the evidence pointing to what a disaster it will be.
