    It's just not a word I would use. Except perhaps about myself.

    We must kill the cop vocab on our own tongues.

    Apparent nobodies from the POV of espionage and international and power politics, is what I mean. (I thought that was obvious. Of course they're somebodies to somebody.) This thing has only just happened so no-one really knows anything yet - my point was only that at present they don't seem to have a target profile like a defecting Russian ex-spy has, so it's conceivable that they came into contact with this material by accident after some of it was left behind during the Skripal poisoning. Then again, people who operate in that world often have multiple identities, so it could be that they were targeted for reasons that aren't yet clear.

    Obviously I'm not suggesting that it doesn't matter that they've been poisoned, of course it does. I mean, I'd be pretty pissed off about being poisoned with a nerve agent, even by accident, and I'm not a spy, either (even if I am a cop).

    Not that close, no.

    Seems most likely at the moment to have been an accidental poisoning from some remnant of the original material.

    The woman's died now.

    Doctors reckon they handled a contaminated object.

    I really wish you stop taking away people's right to entertainment by focusing on human tragedy.

    Argues that QAnon is a prank by someone conversant with Luther Blissett's superb novel "Q". Includes input from the authors.

    I just read this. The idea that it's a prank "intended to make the far right look stupid" is appealing, but could any purpose be more redundant? In another piece I read about it the other day, QAnon's popularity and credibility (to his fans) were apparently not harmed when the date came and went that he'd earmarked for the release of a video showing Hillary Clinton "chopping off a child's face"...
