Yesterday I was sent (by this blogger) an interesting piece about English law as it relates to blogging (here). So, to avoid any further run-ins with the authorities, potential embarrassments to my kindly employers and so on, outside my formal academic pieces (articles, lecture scripts, etc.), in ‘discursive’ posts no personal names will henceforth be employed. Instead a system of links and allusions will have to suffice. Over time, with luck, this will evolve into a complex code which only H.o.t.E. aficionados will understand and be able to employ. This will consequently turn this site into an unholy on-line fusion of Private Eye and a kind of Virtual Oxbridge High Table. This, naturally, as it doesn't take a genius to figure out, represents the pinnacle of all my secret, repressed desires.
