Yahoo! buzzing over 'nonce Pope's' Christmas message

Seasonal outbreak of discomfort and joylessness

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Yahoo!'s buzz service took a pop at the papacy overnight, apparently informing its readers: "Nonce Pope to deliver Christmas message on the BBC".

Buzz, for those who haven't noticed, is a Digg-alike service allowing Yahoo! users to flag up content – and crucially giving them the ability to add in their own headline. And for those not familiar with the argot, "nonce" is a UK slang term for paedophile.

The posting – linking to a Sky News story announcing that the Pope would be contributing to BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day strand – was made about 14 hours ago. Which is clearly about the time many social networkers are getting to grips with the third of their chosen Christmas spirits. ®
