    I notice that it *may* be possible that people missed the purpose of my cynical addition of </AOL>.

    It used to be the case that many AOL people were clueless and included the whole of an original posting with the "Me too" line appended.

    This metamorphosed into the line:
    <AOL> Me too </AOL> in some circles.

    In my case I tried the BBC site from an Easynet connected DSL.

    It was an issue with Telewest's upstream DNS in my area (Croydon)

    Its been fixed now - guess the cache was fubared on one of their DNS servers?
