    Is anyone else getting heartily sick of the spam from companies telling us in email what they are doing to combat coronavirus. Did I ask them? No. Some don't even have unsubscribe buttons at the bottom as though it's their right to send out this thinly-disguised advertising.

    As for getting an unsolicited text from UK_gov on my mobile, that takes the biscuit. I've reported it to Vodafone and they kindly replied: 'Thanks for helping us to combat spam'.

    They didn't 'kindly reply', you just got an automated acknowledgement.

    Why on earth would you report a Government text telling people to stay in and wash their hands?

    Because I object to being texted by the government. I didn't ask for it, it's my mobile phone. Thin end of the wedge.

    Poor girl, no age to go. As well as whatever wonderful things her friends and family remember her for, please let her legacy be that more young people start taking this seriously.

    And I thought I was the ultimate technophobe, it's public information trying to get the story out as wide as possible. Although why they couldn't put all the information in the text rather than a www.link to somewhere I don't know. There are people like me mam and Chazz who don't have www. on their old telephones.

    I'm told by someone I know (and trust) who does some PR for XR that it's actually posted by a white supremacist group who wish to discredit XR.
    She's assessing the damage as we speak.

    OLM, where did you see the picture?

    Why would 'white supremacists' bother about XR?
