Subrosa, self-declared "Dundee Wifey" has run an excellent blog for many months. In her own words, she blogged..
"..to help promote interest in independence for Scotland and to keep the Westminster government's misuse of our armed forces in the public domain."
But she must have offended someone. Today, she's posted her final post, and announced (update - the site's already gone) that she's giving up. Not through ill-health, or sudden ennui, but because:
"My identity has been exposed. Not only do the person(s) know my name they also know my full address .. why would any person .. go to the trouble of finding out my name and address for any other reason than malicious intent?
"[the person] is well known to be a great supporter of certain Scottish unionist bloggers or ex-bloggers"
What the fucking, fuckety fuck? Its very far from paranoid of Subrosa to assume that this shitbag wasn't after her address just to send her fucking Christmas card.
It's a safe bet that this information was sought as it's pretty much the only way to attack an anonymous blogger.
Bloggers can delete comments, ignore emails and carry on regardless, but to anyone who values their privacy - and security, if they've been outspoken - the threat of 'outing' is the ultimate deterrent.
And a highly effective silencer.
So now a good blogger, and a popular one - number 40 in Wikio - has to give up, is silenced, just becauses some twat doesn't agree with what she said.
Subrosa concludes her post:
"What has happened to me can .. happen to anyone. That's the risk we take as bloggers and especially one who has strong political views. It's a dirty, dirty world the world of politics right enough"
Mildly put; Subrosa never did use the swear words. Leave that to CF:
It's a fucking sordid shitheap, and some of the bastard cockroaches that live on it are beneath fucking contempt.
