I've just de-linked from all the local blogs in Nairn to which I still linked (and a few were never linked to anyway); this is probably unfair on one or two of them, but to be quite honest I'm just a little cheesed-off with the petty and nasty nature of a few of the better-known ones (in this very small blogging pond, at least) in recent days. I've had enough!
They're still in my RSS feed-readers, so I won't be totally unaware of what some of these 'bottom-feeders' are focussing on, but I won't be paying much if any attention to their witterings for some considerable time. That's it. I'm done with this topic.
