Just got news that blog Shot By Both Sides was forced to go offline his employer was blackmailed into sacking him. What happened? Is that right? Anyone got the details? Sounds a bit worrying. He's not too happy about it...

See the comments here:

It turned out my hunch was spot-on – not only did someone (or some people) complain to John’s employers, but they also threatened to contact the firm’s clients and the national press. Clearly, this wouldn’t have done wonders for his career prospects – hence the site closure (which John said was the “least worst option”).

So let’s just put this in perspective: while some may have been offended by what John wrote, others actually took it upon themselves to try to destroy his career.

To say that these people are scum is something of an understatement – and I for one hope they’re outed before they pull off another stunt like this.
