Just a parasol

The following comment didn’t appear on whatever post it was meant for, as WordPress’s spamcatcher automatically sent it to the bitbucket.

I like your blog and I feel we share sufficient common ground for a link to each others blogs to be mutually beneficial.If you agree to link then please contact me at ‘An Unrepentant Communist’


on the commments page of the current post,and I will immediately link your blog to mine.Looking forward to hearing from you.

Gabriel, for the love of Marx, give it a rest.

Incidentally, can anyone tell me what’s at http://urban75.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=222492? There’s a link to this blog there, apparently, but not having an Urban 75 account I can’t tell what it is.

    No it was’nt posted in error, I like your blog and just thought it would be nice to link, one does not have to agree with everyones views all the time to admire their work on their blog…as for the ‘love of Marx’ well I would prefer the love of God …The Unrepentant Communist tag is actually a challenge as to how prejudiced people can be, thats why its in inverted commas. since it was the epithet applied to Bertolt Brecht before he felt obliged to leave Hollywood..Any of your readers who have the temerity to challenge their own preconceptions will always be welcome…

    Gabriel – just rescued your comment from the spambucket. WordPress’s spam filter ‘recognised’ your link request as spam, then blacklisted your address. I’ve un-blacklisted you now.

    There’s another reason why individually-composed comments are a good idea – particularly on WordPress blogs.
