    Apologies if I offended you, but you did seem to have gone out of your way to have a rather pointless dig, while ignoring the actual story.

    Sorry to be a pedant but why is Leigh Van Bryan being referred to as a "British tourist"?

    What does "referred for being a match to a one day look out" mean?
     
  14. Miss Caphat

    Miss Caphat I want it that way

    probably just what it sounds like. They put out an announcement at a particular airport(s) to "look out" for this person on the day his flight was scheduled, and finally he was spotted and reported to customs.

    anyway, major facepalm moment. I'm sorry we're so dumb :(

    I assumed it read that they had prior reason to suspect him enough to do a thorough (or just google) search on him (and hence the tweet came up)

    Wookey Muppet is not a slur

    It's a minor blip in an otherwise flawless international reputation...

    Wonder how many Irish people tweet they are headed over 'for the crack'?

    But it's a different spelling innit? (Craic)

    Yeah I know. But how many people (young people especially) spell correctly in textspeak? Actually it is far more likely to be british people (who would often use the incorrect spelling) who are most likely to get pulled.

    It's most probably an urban myth but I do recall a story from around 20 years back about a group of partyseeking lads out in the big apple asking people in bars "Where's the craic, so?" and ending up getting arrested...

    Is it bollocks. the Irish have been up to no good since records began.

    Considering half of Amerians claim to have Irish ancestry, unbelieveable that they'd never heard the word craic :hmm:

    Textspeak :mad::mad:

    Minnie_the_Minx someinenhhanding menbag and me ah bollox

    The words deemed as being sensitive by the DHS include:

    • Illegal immigrant
    • Outbreak
    • Drill
    • Strain
    • Virus
    • Recovery
    • Deaths
    • Collapse
    • Human to animal
    • Trojan

    I think everyone on Twatter should use one of the above in every single tweet and keep that lost busy for a while :D

    Yeah, I wondered about that one as well :confused::D

    and illegal immigrant? Better hope all those Daily Mail readers don't use Twitter

    eta? Drill - maybe a dummy run for something?
