good God! You learn something new every day.

"Bottle and glass" = "arse" is Cockney rhyming slang, but I was using "bottle merchants" not so much in the literal sense that Urbandictionary has it there, but "those who are prone to losing their bottle" (to "lose one's bottle", to "bottle out" = "to lose one's nerve", literally "to shit oneself"). I'm quite pleased with the connotation of male prostitution though as it makes the overall post ruder. cheers, dd.

And ruder is almost always funnier.

On the substantive point, not only should these websites be allowed to exist, the police and intelligence services should set up some of their own, identify the shitheads most likely to enlist, and follow them around, both online and otherwise.

This is actually done - it's even done so often that they have a name for the practice - "pseudogangs". Some people think that as much as half of militant Loyalist political groups in the 1980s and 90s in Northern Ireland were pseudogangs of one sort or another.
