just like it's not The Font, The Hueco or The Bishop...
@ m: Thanks, I've changed it.
ANYWAY - even more childish/funny is that jens now is not posting anything about freds "new" route... (despite this coud well be one of the very hardest routes in swizzy/world!!!) - looks like he has to proove not to be a copycat - welcome to the kindergarten ;)
I only think it´s a bit funny that several news across the last days folowed exactly the same order in The Lowdown and 8a.nu, that with a delay of minutes in Björns favour. It seems very much like someone is watching this blog and just copying here but referring to the original news.
You might agree that there is a big difference between investing a lot of time to put a lot of hot news together from many differens sites and just watching the one that makes the job, then copying and referring the sources as if they had done the actual job (and by the way callim themselves the bigest climbing site ever).
Actually my comment was kind of a test to see if 8a would interrupt the "stream" och suppousedly copyed news. As you confirmed they didn´t report which could indicate something.
Nice blog, by the way :-)
...may björn shoud build arround thelowdown kind of a better alternative to 8a.nu - what he has allready done in the news-sector ;)
ps: i know - my "blog" is the KILLER ;)
