I've been very disappointed to see 38 Degrees, a people-power campaigning organisation whose petitions I've often signed, going down the data-blind anti-corporate route that blights the likes of Avaaz. Straying from their typical social justice agendas, 38 Degrees have decided to direct their ire at the government for considering a repeal of the EU-wide ban on neonicotinoid pesticides that's been in effect in Europe for the last year.
Sorry for the 6 months that this site has been offline -- in particular for anyone who's been trying to read the night-climbers transcriptions. My RadiantCMS server refused to restart after an Ubuntu server upgrade, and because Radiant and Rails are a steaming pile of crap when it comes to package management and code quality, a good 10 or so hours of configuration fighting failed to resuscitate it. At which point I lost the will to live.
