Comment posted Dunoon ferry meeting revealed more than it knew by Techroom.
Had the commenter not been David, our mouses would not have even twitched toward the spam button, but because it is, and because David is publicising his site, albeit, one might argue, in a publicly spirited kind of way, there was a moment’s hesitation there. We thought you should know about that hesitation before we reluctantly approved the comment.
We see this as an opportunity to play fair, and let David know that this sort of self-publicising, traffic-trawling comment is something we would discourage from him (and anyone else for that matter), both in terms of our site (we’ll simply delete comments like this in the future) but also in terms of any other site that he might care to make similar comment upon (being classified as Spam by them will do great damage to his website’s search engine rankings as that ‘Spam’ tag will be applied not only to his IP address, but his email address and his domain).

- Strachur Post Office under threat of closure
This has been very badly handled indeed. I use this Post Office 4-5 times a week and its closure has huge financial repercussions for my business, almost to the point that I’ll need to relocate both business and home to ensure that I can continue. Do the Post Office really have any care for the communities they serve? Are they aware that everytime they close post offices they are contributing to rural depopulation and decline? Looks doubtful given this.
- Land Reform Review Group’s Interim Report – an empty envelope addressed to a dead letter box
This is a woeful interim report. Lynda has hit it on the head. It will therefore be very interesting to see what comes out of the Community Land Scotland conference and AGM on Skye tomorrow, especially as Alex Salmond is the keynote speaker. One can’t help thinking this is the ideal platform for the first minister to push the review in the right direction rather than allow it to follow its present pathetic course.
- Planning application in for Portavadie Marina spa and leisure building
Love this. But, the pool is too small!
- ForArgyll.com continues to improve its reach
Cheers Iain, it was definitely too well hidden if you’re not aware of it. We’ve just reset it!
- First Minister’s choice not to condemn mob behaviour proves Farage point
On the matter of likes and dislikes, I can confirm that there have been no problems with the software, nor any manipulation. Variations like those described by Lowry might be a cumulative effect of page caching by server and browser. In any event we’ll keep an eye on things.
