Tim has a post up about Guido Fawkes (aka Paul Staines). Interesting.

Can't help but notice that Guido has comment moderation on again. If that was simply about deleting "boring" posts, why go to the bother of having to personally approve every single one of the numerous comments his site receives? (It wouldn't be too much trouble for the comments he submits himself, of course.) And pretty much real time too if my not at all scientific checks in the early hours of this morning and then just now are any indication. Surely an occasional scan through to delete these "boring" posts would be all that's required. Unless Guido has some sort of overwhelming phobia about "boring" posts, he's behaving rather strangely. It's almost as if he's got something to hide.

And as Tim points out today, Guido's response is far from open. Did he answer any of the points Tim raised or did he indulge in the sort of smearing which is so popular among the politicians he claims to despise? He didn't even link to Tim's post to make one of his "witty" remarks about it. Clearly Guido Fawkes (aka Paul Staines) really doesn't want you to read the post.

Guido can do what he likes of course but his responses to Tim's post have been informative in their own way.
