One for Paul

This one’s for Paul from Uni: Tales of the Plush Cthulhu

Some thoughts on blogging etiquette. With anything like this I have a policy of always linking to the blog entry that pointed me to the site in question (if I found it via someone else’s blog). The exception to this rule is when I’ve seen it on several blogs, as is the case with this item which I’ve spotted on Caveat Lector, More Like This and BoingBoing. My reasoning is that whenever something gets linked this heavily it’s aproaching meme status, so who linked it first becomes something of a moot point.
