News on Harry’s Place – 26 August 2008 onwards.
I will update when more information comes in.
Update 1: a backup of the backup has been created and I will re-post as much as I can. http://jennadelich.wordpress.com/
Update 2: Support is coming in strong, here’s an amusing blog: http://duke-of-chaos.livejournal.com/898.html
Update 3: read the Contentious Centrist on Disabled Harry “Pretty incredible stuff. A new definition for chutzpa: She distributes a link to a bone-fide neo-Nazi website and takes umbrage at those who pay attention.”
Update 4: Mr Eugenides comments. Bob is excellent as ever, Matt deserves a prize, what a good way of putting it:
“You know: check that your tires are properly inflated before you get into your car. (Never mind that some people should just give their keys to a friend.) And even if there are no swastikas prominently displayed on the website you’d like to recommend, if it has prominent links to sites that do have swastikas prominently displayed, that’s a good indication that you should sober up before entering the debate.
David Hirsh adds, “I would add this: if you agree with what is written on a fascist website then you should stop and wonder why that might be.” “
PS: if I miss anyone off, apologies, just send me an email to confirm your support of HP to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: I support HP.
Update 12: Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion covers it.
Update 13: Index on Censorship does a small piece.
Update 14: Marko comments. SnoopyTheGoon at SimplyJews take a direct approach. The web’s news consolidator, wikio, has picked up the story. The hyphen could be to blame? get the Ministry of Truth take on events.
Update 15: complexsystemofpipes posts “Now, I haven’t seen what HP actually wrote about JD, for reasons that will become clear.” I am speechless.
Update 16: Even the Tory, Benjamin Gray see the issue, along with SB news, For proletarian internationalism. Static Squids put it succinctly. Free Speech & The Blogosphere from Unenlightened Commentary.
Update 17: The Green Guru, Derek Wall is “horrified by the fact that a legal threat is being made to shut the blog down and I think it is important to spread the word and give a bit of solidarity.”
Update 18: Boycotted British Academic says “I feel compelled to speak out today, even if these days I mostly find myself speechless again, beyond words, for I want to register my alarm at this very troubling development, which risks doing to the blogosphere what has been done to my union, which now functions solely as a reliable source for a most abominable hate-fest, thanks to the fact that union debates take place in conditions in which the only speech which gets protected is that of the racists.”
Update 19: Serendipity ! Bob is seeing the same pattern as me.
Update 20: Rather strange debate at discarded lies . More Green support from the Daily (Maybe) who remarks preceptively : “It’s one thing to link to abhorrent material (after all I’ve even done so in this post, it can be impossible to avoid if you’re to allow the reader to judge for themselves) but it’s quite another to kick up a fuss when someone highlights the fact that you did so.”
Update 22: HP is back!! http://www.hurryupharry.org/
Update 25: Tidied up some links and Adam Holland sent his support.
