FOTW: Drop the limp-wristed headlines
Friendly advice from reader
From: Robert Munro
Subject: Intel "outs" ... Intel?
Jeez, Drew... are all you Register hacks just a sad bunch of poofters or what? You've got headlines that "Intel outs Banias" and "Intel outs Prescott" where the "outing" subtext implies that the chips are rather queer, if you get my drift. Is there something sordid in the Register ranks lately, what with all this recent homosexual obsession? You couldn't all have attended the same British public school (or you'd likely be elsewhere than scratching out forgettable rewrites of press releases and markedroid blather for a great IT rag). Therefore, what gives? Are you implying Intel and/or it's new chips are a bit light in their loafers? If so, I'll probably agree with you, but you guys don't need to get so archly Rosicrucian about it, do you now? I mean "shows" is just one more letter, "reveals" just three more, "announces" not too much larger, you see. Whatever,... but I for one will appreciate it if you'll drop the limp-wrist headlines, unless you really mean it. If nothing else, you'll avoid getting the nancy boys among your readers all excited about mere Intel chips....
