"I have known Phil since childhood. I can tell you, therefore, that he has utmost integrity as, I believe, the way he has dealt with the comment in question shows. So if anyone is going to attack bloggers, can I suggest they attack unscrupulous bloggers and not someone like Phil? I am, of course, not naive about the motivations of some. But for those who are attacking Phil because he is a "Limey" rather than a blogger, can I suggest you take a good look at yourself because you have far more to be ashamed about than he ever could? And for the more broadminded of you, I hope you continue to enjoy Phil's site and the debate it so clearly stimulates." Agree 100%! I was pondering some of the comments today from the Bermuda Sun calling for Limey to be held accountable. A couple of reasons this is silly. 1) The coffee shop argument already noted. The Limey is nothing more than a coffee shop that allows people to interact. A coffee shop would never be held accountable for someone slandering (and claiming to be American Onion) Tony Blair even though it provides a forum for people to be heard. A better analogy might be hyde park in London. 2) My local newspaper publishes letters to the editor all the time and uses real names. These letters can be near slanderous, but I can't imagine a newspaper ever getting sued for reporting people's opinion. Even if someone used a fake name. Heck, probably happens all the time. I know the people who are criticizing this site for it's blog characteristics or it's limey characteristics are in the minority (hopefully), but it is still uncalled for. Keep it up Limey

"Digging around online, it seems that setting Internet Explorer to accept all cookies, as described in the "Troubleshooting" section above should help." That worked!!
