When I wrote my GIP explaining this icon I wrote a brief paragraph of the legal case it was inspired by. It appears that my memory was slightly faulty on a few minor details, and The Snow in Summer[1] has a much better explanation and also links to the then Staggers editor, Steve Platt, own website and recollections. This post is partially to share the links, because it's all worth a read, and partially to remind me to return and read it properly when not 3/4 asleep. Thanks Iain, nice bit of digging there. I've since lost my back issues of Staggers from the time, although I do have a copy of the offending Scallywag issue, probably ought to scan it and put it up somewhere.


[1] [livejournal.com profile] tsitsoss_rss, one of the first 'blog' feeds I subscribed to after setting up LJ, think I found it clicking links from [livejournal.com profile] ukpolitics, and definitely an influence on my decision to try and 'blog' on stuff I know about &c. Strange how we can all end up going full circle. Of course the author was [livejournal.com profile] daweaver of this parish, before he left, many of his concerns about LJ have since been proven completely right, naturally.
