Deadline goes whooshing by

Thanks! Douglas Adams.
Well the deadline for The Guardian. "slaughter" ten pound challenge passed yesterday and there were no winners despite valiant attempts by Lenin from Ireland, Hannah from the USA and even the readers' editor of the Guardian. It would appear that Guardian. reporters do not use the word "slaughter" to describe the killings of Palestinians by the Israeli army. They have used it to describe the killing of Israelis by Palestinians. When I complained to the readers' editor he said that my complaint was "unfounded". And this is the man responsible for "Corrections and clarifications".
