It's been ages and ages since we cavorted merrily together with Ceri Radford on the DT. Alas, when Ceri stopped writing about Constance Harding, I retreated to the Finance Section.
Here's a little MyT blog about what I found in the Finance Section....
The character string anker has become popular in comments that appear on the main Telegraph website. In fact, anker appears most frequently in discussions about the Financial Crisis.
It is noticeable that people who use anker in their comments like to draw attention to what they are saying, by prefacing the string with an asterisk so that it appears as *anker.
There are also variations of *anker, notably the plural form *ankers and the abbreviated form *ank. For added emphasis, these variations are often followed by an exclamation mark, as in *ankers!
Now you may well be puzzled by all this.
But I truly believe I'm beginning to see the light.
The more I see *anker in DT comments, the more I think of it as a canker.
What's your opinion?
