Concerning the Defamation Bill

In a Nature blog post titled Liable to confusion, Lee Turnpenny wonders why Nature took down the article El Naschie sued over.

I tried to leave the following comment, which is awaiting moderation.

The Nature article that El Naschie sued over, and which, as you observed, Nature took down, is preserved on the El Naschie Watch blog, here.

Nature probably won't allow it, just as they didn't allow Yahia's blog post. Comments on the court case are forbidden. It wouldn't even surprise me if Turnpenny's post disappeared down a black hole.

Lee, if you are reading this, feel free to link to Fight! directly from your article.

  1. Jap, the dissaperance of Turnpenny's post wouldn't be a big surprise, although the case concerned is over in practice.

  2. dissaperance--> disappearance

  3. Hi Jason,

    Thanks for attempting to comment. I am unaware of anything ‘awaiting moderation’, which is certainly not a stipulation of mine, and have queried it.

    Get back to you...

  4. I am informed (following bank holiday delay) that they cannot see the comment in the admin interface. May be worth re-attempting...? Failing that, you could comment at

  5. Lee, I tried again. I can't comment or register on the Nature site. I get:

    "Our apologies, but you do not have permission to access any blogs within this installation. If you feel you have reached this message in error, please contact your Movable Type system administrator."

    I left the comment on your Wordpress blog though:
