Am I being a bit silly here but whenever I click either links the times are asking me to register and PAY! do we really have to pay to ask this man questions?

I'm not paying anything towards the times, daily mail or the sun. Evil rags.

I certainly won't be paying anything towards the Times, NOR the despicable author of the offending article.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as bad publicity, so I imagine the contemptible author is laughing all the way to the bank thanks to his fabricated blurb.

Boycott. That would be more embarassing if no one calls or logs in.

Since the article I've heard all sorts of stuff about the author and his family. Some of it, I guess, hearsay, and some of it probably true. Enough to be able to ask some embarrassing questions, but then I thought sod it, no, just forgot about the 'gentleman' and move on.

I hope people will boycott his chat. He doesn't deserve any more publicity. For anyone who is still interested in the topic, try picking up a copy of the most recent Sussex Express instead. Has an excellent letter from a Lewes woman in a mixed race relationship who very calmly and reasonably points out the problems with his article. Much better written than his article. And you don't need to pay Murdoch a quid for the privilege.

I will boycott, fleetingly considered it - but comments here have convinced me otherwise

So did this go ahead? What was the general impression?
And has anyone seen DJS in the town since his rather strange article was printed?
