    Ok, this is on the web as a blog post - but a blog on a commercial companies website - so sort of 'in the news'


    Urban Explorers in the News - www.palladiumboots.co.uk



    WTF - it describes 28dayslater as 'influential', is scathing of the press "stirring up a bit of hysteria" and is very complementary about one of our members pictures and comments.

    Hmmm, maybe I'm still asleep and dreaming :rolleyes:

    Maybe - but my point was that whoever wrote that totally failed to embrace all the usual press 'band-waggons' - no mention of B&E - had a go at press hysteria - had a go at the use of phrases such as 'raid' - was nice about 'Trog' (and 28)

    He/she would have scored very badly at 'press-school'

    The Palladium blog is great, and is a perfect example of how commercial enterprises should be using the web. I've seen so many retailers with blogs that just shill their own products, but Palladium are clever and mix in some interesting non-product stuff. The result is that it makes me want to buy into their brand and lifestyle and spend my hard-earned cash on their boots.

    The Give Styru All Your Cash blog is great, and is a perfect example of how money laundering enterprises should be using the web. I've seen so many scam sites with blogs that just shamelessly ask for money, but Give Styru All Your Cash are clever and mix in some interesting non-scam stuff. The result is that it makes me want to buy into their brand and lifestyle and give styru all my hard-earned cash.

    Wow, a blog post or newspaper that that doesn't contain the words 'irresponsible' is a rare find indeed! As a small side matter, I have just been onto the givestyruallyourcash.com intending to give Styru all my cash and the link appears to be broken... In a moment of madness I have decided to give the entire contents of my bank account to the Birmingham Bountiful and Benevolent Fund for Stray Drain Kittens. Is this okay and should I try the link again next month? :confused

    yes it is great for trog and so unusual to find a level headed and unsenational article about 28dl.
    and I bet their blog has had many more hits than usual. a win win situation

    Seems like a waste of time to up the security for a building that is closed down, really does not make sense to have the media misinterpret what goes on based on the unnecessary reaction from the company. What can you do I suppose, the media is in the right to get in other peoples faces with cameras for the next big story but a few shots are taken from an abandoned factory and every one blows a fuse. :confused
