I really think this overblocking issue is important.  If there are going to be official filters, there HAS to be a proper, FAST, appeals process.
"Changing Attitude is a small Christian charity campaigning in support of gay people in the Anglican Church. In 2013, TalkTalk classified Changing Attitude's website as pornographic making it inaccessible in any household using TalkTalk's Child Lock filter. It took three weeks and lots of pestering for TalkTalk to stop classifying Changing Attitude's website as pornography. Even then, TalkTalk didn't notify Changing Attitude that they had stopped filtering out their website.
"For some teenager somewhere, it's going to be really vital information that some Christians are gay. You'd think it would take exactly onesecond to see Changing Attitude isn't a porn empire."
Kate Smith - Chair of Changing Attitude"

ahahahaha yes. 
Every friend I have with a job that involves picking up something heavier than a laptop more than twice a week eventually finds a way to slip something like this into conversation: "Bro,1 you don't work hard. I just worked a 4700-hour week digging a tunnel under Mordor with a screwdriver." ...

Today I set up a Google product feed for a Woocommerce shop with lots of variable products.  Am slightly smug that my Woocommerce feed fully supports product variations, and the official paid-for Woocommerce plugin does not.  Go me!

I'm wondering exactly when it was that 'duplicate content' became a huge SEO boogieman, and whether all the fuss about it is really justified.  I don't think I''ve ever come across a site with a real duplicate content penalty.  Presumably there are some, but it seems like such an odd thing to fret about.  Not really much to do with quality.

Can there BE any more enfuriating a phrase than the sentence 'Please reach out for assistance'.  When you KNOW that you are not 'reaching out' to an actual person, but a vast, faceless organisation with very small customer relationship skills.  PTAH!

Finally!
 
When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

Brythen the lurcher seems somewhat unimpressed by our shiny new +Clare Associates Ltd  banner.

I've just decided not to recommend/set up Google Apps for a customer, because the user interface for managing mailboxes and setting up email aliases is just nightmarish.  Someone at Google Apps desperately needs to have a quick look at Cpanel and see a nice, usable system that real human beings can use without needing extensive training or spending ages mired in 'where was that functionality, I saw it a minute ago!' hell.

I was wondering how this could work without using some sort of locally-stored tag, but thinking about it, you can often get a surprisingly detailed picture of an individual if you just look at their IP location, browser, platform and content history - and cookies are specific to a single machine and browser anyway, so can be quite misleading.  But I can't see any new tech reassuring people who are worried about privacy, if it actually works in any usable way, people will stress about it...

According to reports Google is working on a cookieless tracking technology. Good news, but does this mean the web is beholden to a single company?

Attended a Tamar Valley Tourism Association event here with buffet lunch - nicely presented and comfortable large main room with an extra small but pretty terrace area looking down over the town. Buffet was beautifully presented and delicious with lots of variety, staff friendly and helpful. Will have to come here again to try the normal menu!
