    What is the purpose of having a picture next to your comments? Does it give the comments greater or lesser validity? Does it make factual assertions more or less true? Or is it just vanity?

    I think it’s mostly vanity

    Nice! Testing 123 ….

  • Tony: people have a range of different reasons, but a good and common one is a parallel with fringe meetings at conference. Think how often when someone asks a question, people turn round to see who the person is who is speaking as they’re interested to know who is making the comments. People’s names next to comments aren’t always a full substitute for that, e.g. you may remember the face but not the name, or because there’s more than one person with the same or similar names (Geoff Payne being a good example).

    WellI would prefer that first of all you insist on people using their real names. Having a picture of a cat doesn’t help much. (And cats would be barred from conference anyway).

    Are Sea Harriers more acceptable than cats?

  • Sea Harrier – RIP. I miss that Harrier Waggle at air shows:-( And we won’t even be getting the F-35 B to compensate. But hopefully some big cat(apults).

  • I like the LiberalDating.com idea.. if only I can get it to work..

  • Well here is my comment. Vanity or not I’ve given it a go.

    eek – I’m not very comfortable with that big yellow banner….. that’ll take some getting used to!

    For me it’s not about vanity by the way. It’s about standing by my comments and inviting people to ask more in person or in other forums as well as here.

  • This blog which demonstrates the ability of Liberal Democrats to construct robust arguments over a triviality makes me proud to be one of them. Takes the mind off election results

    Can't one just forgo the response altogether? The attention to it is likely to be only negative.
