Hi Chris, Oli,
Sorry for my lack of replies. As you can see from my other posts, it's been a busy weekend for me!
I'd like to make three final points.
1) The primary purpose of this blog was to talk about the technical measures behind blocking. I'm sorry that it descended to the level of mere politics.
2) Whether or not you think blocking a site which has not been found to be illegal is censorship, I think it's important to talk about these things before it's too late.
3) Finally, I've been quite open on this blog about my past breaches of copyright and where I think the creative industries have made mistakes.
Thanks for your comments.
