The perils of free blog hosting

Well, well, well ... just when I thought it was high time to think better of the world!

Matthew over at greenideas just brought to my attention a disturbing cyber-phenomenon. Let me put it this way: under no circumstances whatsoever should you mistype the last part of a blogspot domain name. If you type 'blogspost' instead, you'll be in for a shocking surprise. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I tested it out on my own URL and also on Human Oddities and Mishaps, Anna's Bloviations and London-Underground and it appears safe to conclude that all the blogspot typos will lead to the same place.

Ah, those tricksy hobbitses ...
