Thanet Star: Facts and Myths: Part Five

Myth: Thanet Star is a place for random links. I'm not sure where some lazy SEO types have gotten the idea that Thanet Star is a place to dump links but they are very wrong. Evidence of abuse by any UK based ISP will always be reported and I am open to the idea of pressing charges of Computer Misuse regardless of where the spammer lives.

Fact: Thanet Star is a blog. A form of participatory journalism. Thanet Star is (using the wikipedia) a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

Myth: Thanet Star is "out to get" INSERT NAME HERE. Certain politcial figures have been observed acting like berks. When they grow up and take responsibility we'll stop talking about their bad behaviour. I'm not out to get anyone but I'm not going to shield someone from the fall out of their own freedom to be a plonker.

Fact: Thanet Star is run for profit. I freely admit that there might be some bias in that I will gravitate towards popular topics and topics that might lead to advertising deals for the blog or contracts for my company. However so far I do not feel this has compromised my neutrality. Read sponsor Thanet Star for more on the subject.
