Uncensored show = A HOAX

by harrietj / October 4, 2006 11:38 PM PDT

Call me cynical, but I think that whole uncensored show ?mistake? Thursday was a hoax. It worked perfectly; it got everybody posting on the site and probably led to many more people subscribing to the Podcast.

Reminds me of the whole Janet Jackson/Super bowl incident. Does anybody really think that was a mistake, a day before she was coming out with a new album?

if they were trying to be controversial they wouldn't have brought up some of the things they did- way too personal.

Two words: Respect Veronica.

I genuinely think she made a mistake and apologized. Now people have to respect V and let this go. Please stop the BOL gang and CNET bashing, it's pure nonsense to think about promoting a regular daily podcast in releasing an unedited podcast.

We had our laugh, V had her nightmare, and we should just go on listening BOL by supporting their work not making false accusations.

I feel like a father protecting his daughter. I get it now. *laughs at himself* >.<

Now... when is V releasing an album, I didn't know she was going to. I'd love to listen to that album! xD

Why would they want to artificially increase ratings with a stunt like that???

As far as I know, Tom, Molly and Veronica are human beings.
As Human beings they are prone to making mistakes every now and then.
I think they made an honest mistake when they inadvertently posted a raw sound file instead of the edited one.
I think everyone here is making a big deal about it even though it isn't.
I would also like to tell Tom, Molly and Veronica that it is OK to screw up every now and then, they have jobs to do and a mistake here and there is bound to happen.

It really doesn't matter whether it was a mistake or a dastardly plot to increase traffic in the forums. The podcast was great -- a real cluster.... of stories! I do admit I missed hearing the voice mails.... but not enough to listen to it again in the sanitized version.

Kepp up the good work.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
