Loved that recent response to Thomas Dolby‘s Shed Life blog post. (
see http://blog.thomasdolby.com/?p=16#comment-116 8 April update:The comment has now been severely edited, though the link to the campaign website still remains. Basically the responder was warning Dolby about the dangers of the American Library Association and their plots to push porn on children.) There always has to be someone with an agenda of some kind. I bet he posts that on a lot of artists blogs that he’s a “fan” of as well as to spam anyone else that he thinks might listen. Notice how the “identity” of the poster is the campaigns website. How is that person not on a crusade? Does that belong on a musical artists weblog about his recording and songwriting techniques? That’s hijacking someone else’s airtime to sell your own product. What say Tom will eventually start doing a lot more quality control on his blog responses, or removing the ability to comment altogether?
I felt the need to reply as these people bother me but I didn’t want to swamp Dolby’s blog in crass flames (though that’ll happen eventually, it happens to us all and is a fact of the internet. Dolby is new to blogging. He’s yet to see the true horror. I wonder if he checks his MySpace regularly?).
