!! OMG, it’s over: Queerclick !!

Remember the article that Queerclick published about how The King’s Speech was shot on the same set as a certain gay adult website?
Well the piece is taken down now because Bedlam Productions, the company behind the Oscar-winning film, sued QC For $2 million saying that their post cost the film an Academy Award for art direction.
How many Oscars does this film need to win that they have to go picking on our favorite NSFW blog?
Regardless, Queerclick will cease to operate in two weeks because as part of their settlement with Bedlam, the company will seize all Queerclick properties [link NSFW]. This is a sad day for Queerclick readers, but moreso for bloggers who now must live in fear that they too will be punished for a little investigative journalism.
Shame on those greedy Oscar hogs at Bedlam, and here’s hoping that Schmeerclick.com launches very soon.
UPDATE: This was an April Fool’s joke. You can now go back to your normal ogling.

!! OMG, how totally evil: The Bank of England !!

In this excerpt from Nicholas Shaxson’s book Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men Who Stole the World, we learn how the Bank of England has actively worked against the British government by aiding tax evaders and has simultaneously driven impoverished African nations deeper into poverty by stealing their tax revenue.
Read the full story at The Guardian. (Thanks Peter!)
