Comments on Moderation

As Phil Groom is on holiday he has asked me to look after the site (I am an officer so have some rights). In the light of the threats made to Dave Walker by the Brewers I have set all comments to moderation. As yet I have not heard from Phil where to go with the blog so am being as careful as I can. As this is not my blog I can not morally remove posts but will check them all out.

Other blogs exists but unless I have permission I will not be posting them here, I will email them out to people who want to know – but beware I need proof of who you are. Also I have set this post for no comments as this may not be the best place to discuss. Sorry about the tighter security but I need to be careful for Phil’s sake.


EDIT – the comments below are pingbacks and will take you to Wardman’s Wire where you can see what he is up to concerning this issue. Ot go to spckwatch on live journal.

Meeting between ex-SPCK staff and suppliers.

In May a group of us got together at CRE just to talk and catch up after we had left the SPCK/SSG Bookshops. A number of people who were there were publishers and others who had supported us, such as Phil Groom and Dave Walker (Cartoon Church Blog). Out of the discussions came this blog and the idea of a meeting to see if there was someway the years of knowledge of the SPCK staff could be used and not wasted, as appears to be happening now.

Well we now have a time, date and venue for the meeting. The date is Wednesday 10th September. The time is 2pm. The venue is SCM-Canterbury Press Ltd, 13-17 Long Lane, London, EC1A 9PN, UK.

Please use this forum to discuss needs and agenda items.
