be warned

Whoops. A psuedonymous blogger complained about a friend who’d lived off welfare while the blogger had paid taxes, and the friend found the blog entry and told the real story in a comment to the original post – yesterday the blogger admitted having exaggerated a lot in order to make the story better. There’s a cautionary tale about telling tales on blogs about friends and acquaintances – and also a warning not to believe stories about “friends” that handily confirm all the prejudices about lazy single mums/immigrants living off welfare.

Sorry, but comments from before December 2010 are lost in the database and I've not yet figured out how to display them properly.
