Wonderful stuff! I am going to call this new defence blog-bombing (unless anyone beat me to it). I now realise that Obi is not in Eire at all but just pretends to be.

Apologies in advance for a tiny derail:

When I went to live in Ireland I was soon taught not to use any of the following three words: 1) Mainland (when referring to England), 2) Punt (adoption of the Euro has rendered this redundant, and 3) Eire unless speaking entirely in Irish (in which case it's as likely to be hEireann or somesuch by the time it's fitted into the sentence.)

We return you now to this fascinating thread...

Some strong language over at badscience.net in response to Netcetera's decision to pull the plug on quackometer.net...

I did a quick Google search and found this about Netcetera.

Pros: Cheap
Cons: Unreliable service, rude, sarcastic and arrogant support staff

In short, avoid this company like the plague.
