Some blogger of whom I’ve never heard has announced that he is delinking several blogs, all of which I’ve heard of and most of which I read. He’s getting lots of free publicity for the blog in so doing.

I hereby announce that I am de-linking the site in question. Granted, I don’t currently link him. How could I, given that I’ve never heard of him? Nonetheless, I consider that a minor technicality. He’s off the blogroll, baby.

    Trying to be funny? I mean I get the joke, but I think that he was saying that those 3 individuals were going to de-link him for discussing a “all nighter”.

  2. James Joyner says:

    Uh, no. Kevin was kidding about that part.

  3. Brian says:

    Funny thing is … in his post, he links each one of the sites that he is de-linking.

    OK, I’m de-linking them, starting … NOW!

    N’ermind. Not enough coffee, shouldn’t comment, etc. etc.

    James, thank you for referring me to three other blogs I had not seen before, all of which I shall read, enjoy, and link. I think this odd fellow is missing a link.

    Lair over at This Blog is Full of Crap has an offer. At your request he will link and then de-link you, and other things.

    Get the feeling Laurence is not taking this seriously?

    Pre-emptive delinking.
    Interesting concept you have there.
