  1. That's a great story, but really, that is THE worst online newspaper I have ever come across. Full page pop-over advert for ASDA, ninja expanding video autoplay inserts, javascripted to stop you back buttoning out of the page, more adverts than you can wave a waving-stick at, all of them tracking your browser, platform, buying habits...

    And then to the story itself which ends with a list of "nominative determinism" names, half of which they've made up (and the actually admit to it, but they won't tell you which is which!

    It's almost an parody example of a local newspaper website. Was it set up by Dave Gorman for comic effect, I wonder?
