Riding on the Coat-Tails of the Famous

Sunday, 23 March 2003

On March 10, John Quiggin posted on his appearance in Technorati's list of the Top 50 Interesting Newcomers. I got a mention in John's post and, as a bonus, a listing at Technorati. Today it's been Robb Corr's turn to carry me to wider prominence - he's listed at number 41. I suspect that, in part, this is due to his decision to ban "Cassandra" from his comments thread and the resulting furore. In my opinion, if Rob wishes to slam the door in the face of an unwelcome visitor, I have absolutely no problem with that. Freedom of speech includes the freedom to call someone an annoying little twat with the usual accompanying suggestions for their future movements and conduct.
