You can find more info on my userinfo page - but this is just here to say that I'm very happy to be friended by anyone that wants to read me. I rarely post friends-only, and that only tends to be about things that mention work, so if I don't friend you back you're not actually missing much...

If you do friend me, this would be a good place to leave a comment introducing yourself, and letting me know how you found me!

Additionally, I have lots of awesome friends - if you want to make a few more then take a look at here for Dreamwidth and here for Livejournal, add a few people, and leave comment so people can add you too.

The links posts come from my page at Delicious and are posted to DW and LJ via a web app which I wrote, and you can use yourself here.

A note to Facebook/Twitter users who are reading this journal:
You can easily leave comments/post in polls if you log in using your FB/Twitter account. Just go to the top of the main page and click on the FB/Twitter icon.

If you have your own blog then you can log in with it using OpenID and use that identity to leave comments.

I've been contacted by the Twitter Legal Team

Dear Twitter User,

We are writing to inform you that Twitter has received legal correspondence regarding specific content posted on your Twitter account, @andrewducker.

The complainant requests that the following Tweet, allegedly in violation of local law in the UK, be removed immediately from your account:

Please confirm whether you will voluntarily comply with the request.

NOTE: The Twitter Rules state that users agree to comply with all local laws regarding their online conduct and acceptable content. Please also be aware that abusive behaviour may lead to your account being suspended.

If you believe we have contacted you in error, please let us know by replying to this email. This notice is not legal advice. You may wish to consult legal counsel about this matter, as a matter of urgency.

Looking at that tweet, and the article it links to, I can't see how it can be in violation of the injunction which was just upheld. It doesn't name any names, and in fact it's very careful to avoid doing so.

In addition, of course, I live in Scotland, where the injunction doesn't hold (and, indeed, I believe the names were published by a major newspaper).

If anyone would like to tell me differently, then I'd be fascinated to hear more...
