Big News apology – Salient editor admits mistakes

April 30, 2009

Good news. The legal action threatened against Wellington-based blogger Dave Crampton for alleged defamation has been dropped.

Dave has posted the details, so I won’t repeat them here.

However, EM wants to make it clear that the original “suspect” in this matter, Mr Michael Oliver, was not the person responsible for the spam attacks on Dave’s blog. The spamming did occur in the Salient offices and a Salient volunteer has admitted to doing it.

I have also decided to place a note my previous posts on this issue to make this clear.
