I always find a spot of Machiavelli brings inspiration at times like this ..

And here it should be noted that hatred is acquired as much by good 
 works as by bad ones, therefore, as I said before, a prince wishing 
 to keep his state is very often forced to do evil; for when that body 
 is corrupt whom you think you have need of to maintain yourself- it 
 may be either the people or the soldiers or the nobles- you have to submit 
 to its humours

Clearly advice to flame him to a crisp.

I used to see bk and his ilk when I used to go to Hereford - they were
hanging around outside the McDonalds wearing Adidas tracksuits and
trying to bum cigarettes off the soldiers.

 Maybe this just says something about the AOL dictionary.
 

/me throws his copy of the OED in the bin, favouring the much more
31337 AOL dictionary. [1]

[1] i guess /me was the wrong way to beging that - how about /me2 ;-)

/me had to look something up in a dictionary last night, and was not at
all impressed when not only did the OED not have the information I was
after (I wanted the Latin name of a particular plant) - it didn't have
the flipping thing at all!

OK, this was the CD version, so at only 650Mb it can't be as comprehensive
as the seventeen ton four mile long Real Thing, but it's a reasonably
common word and bloody well should have been in there.
