There was a right royal kick-off in the online world the other day, thanks to a number of national newspapers running photos of people pretending to be the Queen without seeking permission to use them.blogs.liverpoolecho.co.uk, Liverpool Echo – Tech Blog, Dec 2009

(Incidentally, I’m reblogging this using Zemanta – never tried it before; hopefully it will work).
UPDATE: Reblogging with Zemanta puts in lots of paragraphs, and maybe I forgot to title it but I don’t recall it gave me an option. Anyway, it’s still quite useful – I think. And I absolutely love that it suggests Outdoors and Caving as potential tags for this blog post…
