25 June 2005All this time later and those lovely people historically responsible for holding vibrations of air hostage are still trying to figure a way to keep their profitable racketeering going by 'monetising" Peer-to-Peer (P2P) filesharing while simultaneously co-opting The Antagonist's very own "new economy" tag:

Better yet, El Reg does the Antagonista-told-you-so-doble, complete with a beautifully ironic twist.

Well, well. Who'd have thunk it? More amusing yet is the fact that Worstall uses a few points about the myth of cannabis psychosis, made by yours truly in the articles posted over three years ago, and then claims that nobody has ever posited such notions before.

Ho ho ho! "Mindless twit" it is then, as confirmed by scientists after three years of intensive research.
