Probably the stupidest decision ever

It is hilarious to think that Schilling's solicitors and Alisher Usmanov probably laughed themselves silly when they threatended legal action against some UK bloggers, resulting in a number of blogs suddenly going off line. They must ahve thought they were so clever getting the internet under their control.

Since then, the original story has been run by now more than 302 other blogs meaning the story is one of the most widely reported stories on the internet anywhere.

If only there was an award ceremony for the biggest cock up of the year.

If you have not yet joined in with running a story on this join the party if you haven't already done so by linking to this post at Chicken Yogurt which covers the original story and the chronology of the story.
