Pinch and a Punch it’s the First of the Month

Once again my review of the blog and local blogging scene for last month.


Turning off anonymous comments has made the blog much easier to manage, this doesn’t affect anyone’s anonymity inasmuch as it is very easy to produce an anonymous blogger, google or other acceptable id, but it has cut back on the effort of managing this blog.

I guess the John Hamilton saga, which I would expect will eventually become a local news story, shows just how badly you have to behave on the blogs before there is any serious attempt to discover the identity of someone who wants to conceal theirs.

The main issue for me this month will probably be the Pleasurama development as the development agreement expires, the key element here being that the very bad plans that were submitted by the developer who proved to be unable to develop have been approved by planning and as far as I can see that approval stands in perpetuity. 

As the blog comment here is starting to improve in terms of the proportion of relevant comment to spam and low level bickering I will start doing some more news and controversial posts here again.

I have tried to put the traffic sources data table below, whether it will publish ok remains to be seen, but it should give some idea of the relative popularity of the local blogs and other websites that link to this blog.

  2. I always look to see where I am on your rating cart but it was only today that I realised how many local blog there are and this won't be a full list. Good idea stopping the anonymous one. I will look to see the format on my laptop it's ok on my kindle but the screen is so small no true idea. Happy Febuary everyone.

    1. Don click on design, top right of your blog when you are signed on to blogger, then click on the settings link, bottom of the list of links on the page you arrive at, this then opens up to a sub-list, click on “posts and comments” check “Registered User - includes OpenID “ and then on save sttings top right of page.

  3. Michael,

    Your turning off the anons is like a breath of fresh air. By comparison just take a look at the manic anon posting on ECR.

  4. Cheers Michael. Yes this does bleed over on Firefox but it is not a problem in fact its much better this way and I hope you keep it this way.

  5. Thanks for the tip John Holyer. I visited ECR blog and enjoyed the comments too. I particularly liked the one that beat the Gazette to the news re departure of the TDC solicitor.

    Am I to understand that you are not the Johnny H pursuing a second career as a gag writer ?

    I do not understand why you refer readers of this anon free blog to anon comments on other blogs.

    1. LTP,

      I am delighted to have been instrumental in your joyous discovery of the current ECR blog.

      Johnny H? - No not me, sunshine.

      You do not understand why I refer readers of this anon free blog to anon comments on other blogs.

  6. On this occasion John it was most rewarding. Allegorical levels. Metaphors. I could see the topicality of a BBC curtain drawing back to reveal a scene of inappropriate behaviour. I could see the psychology of violation by proxy and a hint of Stockholm syndrome. But I don't think I sussed yet the full complexity of the moral choices presented to the character on stage alone but in full public view.

    It being allegorical, morals of the tale can be derived. At the simple level "Don't mess with Iris" (The Iris in the story). I could see that the critic in the crowd represented the antecedents of the abuse victim on stage. And hence that the wink to the critic represented thumbing the nose at the development of past standards bequeathed to the current generation.

    A challenging but rewarding read.

  7. LTP,

    Undoubtedly and I would go so far to claim that it was in many ways an enticing example of a modern systematised reciprocal concept.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow. Does that mean the Yorkshire character becoming the victim not the perpetrator of abuse uncovered at BBC.

    The Thanet character on stage retains his recognition of the authority of the BBC compere to tell him when to press the button.

    But the victim is the product of the nature and nurture represented by the critic in the crowd ?

    Thus creating creating a couple of takes on that nature and nurture. Beneficial or damaging ?

    I reckon it is one of those stories that are like In my Father's House there are many Mansions.

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.
