enemy is the m/c review

the piece that just went up onm the main site is uncredited, i susperct it is a bit shit too, i haven't read it in full, just the repeated use of 2 exclamation marks is a bit shocking!! It makes the author look like a moron!!

So yeah, credit please.

Oh and when you click on the link for 'openly classist' this is the only piece - which is wrong, theres a coupkle of pieces by and about them here.

We have forum topics about them, but can't get forums to work with tags yet. I'm not sure if we've got any library/news/history articles about them at all, but if we have, then they'll be updated to the new tags system along with the other 2,000 we've still got to do.

Been doing them when I see them, but I'm incapable of being systematic about it so it's at a slow rate. I've noticed less "related articles" errors coming up, so that must be why!

ah, in a techy sense it may be, but if you came across the article by seatrching openly classist not BF, there is nothing in the text to say who the piece is by.

Its in the the BF folder yeah, but it doesn't say who or what is writing the review.

Yeah, all my fault smile

Can't currently find the old issue it was in so I can't remember whether it was signed when first published. The author was/is a contributor to a number of different publications under a number of names. He had a very bad typing style and I used the original source file, which accounts for the multiple exclamation marks. The style might not be in everyone's taste, but the points made are good ones.

If it was signed, I'll update it

regards,

Martin
