That's weird. I'd be surprised if it was a copyright issue, as it's clearly a public campaign and you'd have thought they would have wanted as much exposure as possible. There were some ghastly and obscene postings about by the ad by neanderthal American gun lovers, so maybe that had something to do with it.

Yeah, i missed it too. Shame. I hate those NRA psychos.

Sorry I've been a bit quiet lately, btw, the laptop was broken.

Simple but effective.

Very good. And I notice that 'comments have been disabled' this time. Really enjoying the 'design of dissent' book, too, Tom - thanks.
