Blog shutdowns, Libel, April Fools and the Sunday Times

Dick at Back Seat Drivers has all the links to the ongoing blog/libel saga that the Sunday Times reported on this morning.
El Paso Times siad they were shutting down due to libel proceedings being taken against them, but then later today said it was all an April's Fools - even though they had posted the notice on March 30th, and a number of prominent bloggers, who were in similar situations before, were contacted by the Sunday Times last week for their reaction.
Dick's post follows the many divergent threads, while Damien Mulley serves as the Irish blogosphere watercooler where all the gossiping's going on.

A watercooler? Me or my site? Least I wasn't called after something full of hot air. Instead I'm full of clear, crisp, Riverock Irish Spring Water. Whatever that means.

I mean your site.
But as Riverrock attempts to sell us, water is something you wear.
Indeed, you cool, crisp and refreshing and just a little watery.
