Following a court directive, food blog Lovin Dublin has removed a recent review by the site’s owner Niall Harbison entitled ‘Super Shitty Sushi On South William Street’. Citing the review’s “factual inaccuracies”, a spokesperson for the site yesterday issued an apology. What do you think?
“But what’s the internet for, if not for blithely speculating about the hypothetical shoddy preparation and storage practices of a restaurant that serves raw fish without fear of somebody taking legal action?”

“Hey Harbo can’t check facts before publishing simply because he’s really fucking whopper time-poor. But see if he didn’t go ahead and publish anyway, then the time he spent writing would be a waste of time too. Hmm. I suppose it’s just a time-poverty, Catch-22, game-changer sort of thing.”
