Not me. They’d be more likely to pay me to shut up.
And I’ll offer the same free advice to Flanagan that I did to that not-as-smart-as-he-thinks-he-is CP reporter:
Remember that idiocy, when that reporter implied I was a government stooge?
Note what is to me the most important bit: he says we did the CCP blogburst before the program was slashed. That is the exact opposite of the truth. As I said in my response, and as anyone can see by looking at a calendar — the CCP blogburst was inspired by my discovery of the SaveCourtChallenges.ca website, funded by CUPE. The demise of the program had already been announced, hence both the CUPE effort (to get it reinstated) and our own (to keep it dead). That’s why so many of the CCP blogburst posts had a zombie theme (it was also a cute tie in to the month of October) which wouldn’t have worked if the CCP weren’t already “dead”.
I’m guessing Flanagan knows as much about the blogosphere as that CP reporter but we’ll find out when his book comes out. Without intimate, first hand blogging experience, you can’t really understand how the sphere works.
Oh, and at least get Janke’s name right next time…
