BBC's speak you're branes collapses under Brand-Ross sex outrage

If you love Russell Brand so much why don't you go and live there?

Security for virtualized datacentres

The BBC's "Have Your Say" online comment forum briefly collapsed this afternoon as the entire population of Britain sought to express HOW INCREDIBE ANGRGY it was about those men being mean to Manuel off Fawlty Towers.

The forum's perma-outraged denizens are notorious as the inspiration of the Twat-o-Tron and accompanying website sensation spEak You're bRanes.

Have Your Say groaned under the sheer weight of Britons chiming in on what punishment should be meted out to Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross, currently suspended for making prank calls.

For anyone who has somehow failed to be swept up in the tide of righteous indignation, political opportunism and media auto-colonoscopy resulting from the calls to Andrew Sachs, read all about it here. And then go and speak you're brane here.

One Reg hack, asked to write a story about the BBC's technical glitch was heard to remark: "Who gives a f*ck?"

In fairness, many of Have Your Say's users comment on how boring and pointless the whole thing is. Which in itself is a bit pointless, rather like this story. Damn. ®
