Re story about orthodox Jews and technology, Chairman Moshe Weiss says that searching for "banana" in Google will bring up porn within the first few results. Purely in the interests of research, I tried this out. But after 10 pages of results, I was unable to see any links that could even be regarded as porn.
Re what to call a tax on sheep and cows emitting methane: how about Fiscal Anti- Ruminant Tax ?

In many cases the BBC report on rising sea levels. Where all the extra water is coming from has never been addressed. Please could you fully explain this as the "standard" answer of melting ice does not add up, most of the ice is underwater and has a greater mass than water itself. There is only a finite amount of water in the world.

To SA (Your Letters, Friday), when an employee is required to resign (often for more minor misbehaviour) he is not treated as having been fired, especially important when applying for new jobs. He might also remain entitled to benefits under his employment contract which would be unavailable to a fired employee.

SA, Salford: being dismissed from some jobs - local government or the Civil Service - means you can never work in those or allied services (hospitals, prisons, etc). Resigning, albeit under duress, avoids that stigma.

I watched Jamie Oliver's latest programme and think that Rotherham councillors have over-reacted. I don't think it was a bad reflection of Rotherham at all, rather it showed very clearly the problems that low income families face, in terms of money and in some cases having no support to teach them healthy and often cheaper ways of cooking. The government has failed to help them, full marks to Jamie for giving it a go, and putting up with the stick.

Re sports journalese. We've mentioned the cases of British players crashing out and SW19 being the abbreviation for Wimbledon, but I wonder why teams are always "rocked" by injuries to a player?

I was interested in the story about the couple who collected rubbish to fund their honeymoon. Are the couple aware that that Tesco has now withdrawn this reward scheme, originally to have been rolled out across the country over the next two years, as so many were cutting cans into pieces to get additional unearned points (as the couple admit to doing)?
"The couple... maximised their point-earning potential by cutting cans in half..." Isn't this fraud?

Phyton? (Your Letters, Friday) Sounds like something that the LHC might have found, if it hadn't been turned off.

Re Porn posted on Damilola web forum. I work for a large forum software development company. Last week, forums (from several providers, including us) were targeted by spammers right across the net. The Damilola Trust should not take this personally - it affected tens of thousands of websites.
With a second county in Wales considering turning off street lights to save money, Powys, the first County, is being urged to leave lights on in crime 'hotspot' areas. But won't the absence of lights create new crime 'hotspot' areas?

If only they had these earlier, it might have avoided the need for this.
