The linkage curse…

January 11th, 2011 | Categories: blogs

If I link to your blog, it’s time to start worrying. Not that you’ll realise I’ve linked to it, since I haven’t figured out all that trackback and what have you stuff yet. No, you’ll only realise when there is the threat of legal action or some other time-consuming hassle.

First, poor old Miguel Llorens had to move his blog here (and to be fair, to update what I said in Nov 2010, the comments are all back, even if the links to the commenters’ websites do not all work) and, if you plough through it, you’ll find dark references to muttered half-threats from m’learned friends.

And then, this week, poor old Rose Newell gets it in the neck from some apoplectic “Director” of the company whose email she quoted in the post I linked to last week. Which has now changed. Luckily for me, the point I wanted to make about it remains. Unluckily for her, she’s got to cope with some uber-sensitive foreign fellow with sketchy knowledge of the UK legal system who wants to sue her for every teacup she owns because she raised a couple of queries about his translator registration process. (See here, if it stays)

So maybe it’s just as well I would have been “meh” if it happened to me….

    It would seem that Rose has had to take her blog down altogether, as your links and my own direct searches all lead me to that saddest of webpages, “error establishing a database connection”.

    Happy (for her sake) to report it seems to be back now.
