What's the word for that mild self-loathing you feel when you click on a story in the most popular list that you usually wouldn't read, purely to see what all the fuss is about? Internet Peer Pressure? I'll get my (sheep) coat.
Catherine Hall, Angel, London

Rusty, Montreal, Quebec

Pjm (Tuesday's letters): My role is an entirely voluntary one and not linked to any other organisation. I am therefore not required to quote measurements in either imperial or metric standards.

Ray Lashley, Independent Guardian of Monitor Weights and Measures
