The Standard has had a bad day with server problems making the blog unusable all morning and half the afternoon. If you enjoy technical essays read lprent’s explanation. We take a lot of our 24/7 technology for granted, it’s a bugger when it hiccups.
The blog has returned in one of the worst ways possible. I don’t know who’s responsible but this is disgraceful even by The Standard standards. Caption Contest:
I’ve been critical of The Standard at times, but this is one of the worst things I’ve seen them do. Ok, ‘The Standard’ isn’t a person, it’s a bunch of people. But one person has created it, they or someone else has posted it, and everyone else has allowed it to stay there with little protest.
If I was able to comment there I would no doubt be baned for what I would say about it. But I’m glad I am no longer commenting there, I wouldn’t want to be directly associated with that disgrace in any way.
The Standard (or some people from The Standard) rate themselves as the best blog on the left. They certainly don’t deserve to be.
