Re : wanker

I'm sorry, but I find the colloquial use of the word "wanker" to denote a nasty unlikeable person, rather than its literal meaning - i.e. someone who does not currently have a sexual partner, - highly offensive to us singletons. It's bad enough having to resort to masturbation without having one's condition associated with every Tom, Dick and Harry in the world who harbours nasty, unpalatable personality traits. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself for this distinctly un-PC lapse, RiotGibbon.

PS Only joshing. Agree with you about schizophrenia as well. One of the more common myths about mental illness, not that there aren't many other misconceptions which are just as unfounded.
