It doesn’t convict him of maddogging, which isn’t a crime anyway. Jason (a-gu.blogspot.com) has spoken for himself in the comments here and I have no reason to doubt him.

Next time, just a bit more careful.

So Maddog did not claim my editorial to be his; rather, that was one of the first posts after the transition to the newest team. You can find authorship attributions at the bottom of each post.

This will all settle out and settle down in the end, and I think the pot shots will stop. The blogosphere has definitely introduced a new dimension to news reporting, and it’s good to see you have a good sense of humour about it all, Mr Jennings. This too shall pass. If it ever gets sorted out, above, please dish. I am confused as ever. As ever, — Danny

Nice work if you can get it!” gets the post even lower.Not to mention that the author gets the person he is digging totally mixed up with someone else.Shouldn’t a professional reporter always do homework (Taiwan Matters’ new blog team http://taiwanmatters.blogspot.com/2009/0 6/taiwan-matters-new-blog-team.html) before they post ?
