On blogosphere


Several blogs celebrated their birthdays last month. In the order in which the announcements arrived (and the number of years they have been in this business): Anand (1), Dilip (1), Charu (2) and Ramnath (3). A very august bunch, this ... (sorry, I couldn't resist it ...)

DesiPundit asked bloggers to share the love, and (almost) everyone did! So much so, that DesiPundit (almost) became the cliche of the week.

Anand has a post in which he asks for your opinion on whether (a) you are responsible for the contents of the blogs you link to (and, at some level, whether your links are a seal of approval), and (b) whether a blogger must go through the contents of a blog before linking to it. He gets a variety of answers in the comments. [My answers, like many others', are no and no]. If you have a view, head over there and share it with everyone.

The following news is in a different league altogether: Wall Street Journal reports that a blogger is getting sued " for comments posted to his site by readers" [link via slashdot].

    Abi,

    Ramnath's link leads to Charu's post. U might want to change it. U can delete this comment later.

    Thanks, Kaps, for pointing out the error; I have corrected it.

    My answers to my questions are No and No too. Didn't get a chance to say it there. So here!
