An interesting little email I received this morning:
Dear Mr Worstall,
I wonder whether you know that your website is blocked at (at least one branch of) Costa Coffee.
I was disconcerted to discover this yesterday – apparently your site is a \”known alcohol website\”, whatever the hell that means, and thus blocked by Costa – presumably in the interests of promoting bodily health and general goodness.
Is this part of the wowsers\’ fight back against those who say that minimum pricing is a God Awful and exotically stupid idea?
I wonder who is running Costa\’s web blocking software?
