PURE POISON DEVOLVING
David Penberthy compares The Punch's numbers to Crikey's and thanks the lefties for a traffic-boosting link. PP boy Scott Bridges responds by screaming BLOGWAR!. Unfortunately for Crikey's hit count, Penberthy has so far ignored the gauntlet thrown down by Bridges.
Crikey has allowed Bridges to transfer his ongoing spats with bloggers Iain Hall and Leon Bertrand from Grods obscurity to Pure Poison quasi-mainstream respectability, however. Here Bridges refers to Bertrand as a"bozo" and Hall a "halfwit". Bridges, over-sized ego on display, reckons Hall should be glad for the link:
Anyway, I thought you might like the traffic last Thursday. I’m a nice guy like that.Pure Poison has now moved from debunking intellectual dishonesty to personal attacks on rivals. The Grodsification of PP continues. The infamous Blair and Bolt incidents taught them nothing.
Update: Perhaps Iain Hall can enlighten us as to how much traffic the mighty PP sent his way.
Update II: Hall says he received seven hits from the Crikey link. Jeez, I am envious.
