Unrelated Footnote: While writing this, I had a thought. Is it possible to get someone accused of a crime on the internet without actually doing so? To explain, in the above post I have put URLs under “Sire” and “it’s his fault“. These links are now indexed by search engines. If I were to write a completely normal and ordinary post, but use certain phrases as keywords and give them links, could I construct a letter to the data mining authorities via these means which would mean that Sire could get a call from the Aussie Stasi? And, if I wrongly accuse him, would this cause him to form an Aussie A-Team?? Hmm, I feel an experiment coming on….
By the way, apologies to Sire for singling him out – it was those two links that kicked off the train of thought. Obviously I wouldn’t implicate him in any crimes. Obviously. No, really.
