the internets REALLY IS a series of tubes

communiqué number two received from Wayne and Arthur Dodgy, Solicitors

We refer to our letter of 8 November 2006 and note that certain material has been removed from your website as demanded.

The live link to “Google” and other search engines must be immediately disabled. Any other devices which allow access via the web to the defamatory material now, or at any time in the future, must also be disabled forthwith.

Please give this matter your urgent attention.

i couldnt stop laughing, i have never read something so outrageously stupid in all my life. "Please change the content of google's listings". But seriously, this is a lawyer? Oh dear help his clients. Did these people study with Senator Ted Stevens ... ?

So, through tears of laughter, I barely held it together and replied, not even bothering to disguise my contempt.

The live link to “Google” and other search engines must be immediately disabled.

Wha? The what-link-to-what?
A "live link to Google". What on earth are you talking about?

Any other devices which allow access via the web to the defamatory material now, or at any time in the future, must also be disabled forthwith.

Well it's pretty obvious who is disabled forthwith. Duh. I suggest you have someone with at least a modicum knowledge of the internet to handle such matters, because really, you don’t seem to have a clue what you are talking about, and you are making yourself look rather, um, foolish.

Please give this matter your urgent attention.

Please buy a book and get a clue.
Oh yes, and bite me.

You know the funniest part of all of this? Someone had to go searching pretty hard to find this page in the frist place. Please, the arrogant son of something had to delve pretty deep to come across it … I am amazed how much people dig googling themselves. And how shirty and cross they get when they see bad words scrabbled across a completely unimportant blog in the backwaters of insignificance. That's arrogance for you. And the record has that by the shitload.
