Pinch and a punch it’s the first of the month, web statistic and anther thoughts on the local blogs.

 Here is a link to my referral web stats that form my best guess of the popularity of the other local blogs http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/812/

Frankly Thanet blogging is a bit of an uphill struggle at the moment, the prevalence of anonymous commentators with way off thread semi libellous comment is increasing to the point where I will probably have to operate some sort of comment moderation.

Already this week I see Bignews issuing an apology http://bignewsmargate.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/an-apology-to-mr-peter-miles-of-east.html which mostly relates to anonymous comments.

News in Thanet is a bit up and down at the moment with Vattenfall blaming installation issues with an export cable at Thanet offshore wind farm 100 million hit in their profits. An expensive bit of wire?

8,000 Rubber ducks were released in Margate last week as part of the towns regeneration through contemporary art wosisname.

The council cabinet approved continuation of the 15 year Ramsgate Regeneration through building on the Pleasurama site, last year we had two men and a digger on site, this year no one on site, so it’s bated breath for 2013, or is that baited.

I will ramble on if get time.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
