Now there’s a surprise!
But there is a sting in the tail"!
In Iain’s post titled “2010 Survey Results: Blogging Habits” was a section “And these are the blogs you read every day....” within which was a strange result.
Being public-spirited I mentioned this to Iain in a comment. The comment has not been published but the strange result has disappeared from the post.
You might think that Iain emailed me to say thanks … but NO!
The post appears with the correction made as though this was how the post originally appeared but we know that is not the case.
This is how the post first appeared courtesy of Bing’s cache. Google’s cache carries the updated version.
After my intervention – I will take the credit although others may have commented too – Donal has disappeared.
AND NO THANK YOU FROM IAIN!
Oh, and there is another point too.
The survey data as reported now been doctored by Iain. Being kind to Iain – why? - I might say that he has removed an obvious anomaly but to do so without comment?
I must check with Tim Ireland because I suspect Tim has other records of this happening.
I’m being unkind. I’m sure this is just an innocent and unthinking mistake on Iain’s part.
Perhaps he’ll thank me now.
If I start holding my breath ………..
UPDATE 6 June @14.05
Iain has left a comment in which he explains how the error occurred. He copied and pasted last year’s results, updated the %ages and deleted blogs which were no longer online. He missed Donal’s at the deletion stage.
