When you work in a big city, every so often you get to see news breaking. Right now there's a protest against the Prudential going on outside my office window. It's all very civilised, a mostly male turn out of people who seem to be 40 plus. The photographers are in attendance and placards are being waved. I'd tell you more, but I can't. Here's a hint, guys: Placards work best when you choose a legibly sized font.

And you can never find any reports on this kind of thing online. I just tried. Ananova had nothing recent about Prudential. BBC, same story, more or less. Certainly nothing about protests. So I turned to http://groups.google.com. "Prudential protest" returned nothing likely looking so I shortened it to "Pru protest" since I'd managed to glean at least that word from a well spaced if not well placard. The first match was from alt.sex.spanking.moderated.

I give up.

tharyngitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis and alt.sex.spanking

I too had a friend who told me she had tharyngitis so I typed it into google and things have moved on .. I got a link to you and discovered Pharyngitis.
I suppose what delayed me from typing the new word into google was your reference to alt.sex.spanking.moderated.
I'm daydreaming now !
Did it have any effect on the writer or other readers I wonder ?
Serious point - the spell checker didn't recognise (that's English for recognize) "google" !!!
Gurgle or giggle just wouldn't be the same search engine.
