An interesting story from [“the Swedish(in Swedish, duh)”:http://www.rod.nu/rod_utv.nsf/Webb/DEEE1CEC435F7932C12573480048BB96?OpenDocument] blogosphere: Carl Bildt, the former Prime Minister, now foreign minister, “has a blog.(Also in Swedish, no duh)”:http://carlbildt.wordpress.com/ He is in fact a natural blogger, picky, aggressive, articulate and contemptuous of lower beings; and his blog is a real one, too with comments that he may actually read, where people argue furiously with one another.
In the course of these arguments, they say things impermissible in polite society, and sometimes, in Sweden, illegal. Now Bildt himself is being investigated for commiting a possible crime against the consitution as a government minister because he did not remove the nasty ones quickly enough. His defence is also interesting: that they were anyway archived, so removing them would make no difference to their availablity. I don’t know quite what is meant here — is he referring to Google? I should, I know, find this out later. For the moment, I just put this entry up, so as to rid myself of another open tab that requires action.
