Turning a one day story into a two day story

My thanks to Red Tory, who's managed to help raise the profile on Team Dion/Valeriote's poor web management, and turn a one day story into a two day story.

Red Tory made the assumption that I didn't know how to use Google to find Frank's correct website. I had posted that Frank's team had let their website go dead, because frankvaleriote.com no longer worked... all you got was a blank page. All they had to do was implement a 301 redirect... but they dropped the ball on that one.

So, Red Tory helpfully posted this screenshot, showing what his Google search came up with...


What he didn't do, however, was show far enough down on his screenshot. Had he done so, you would have seen this...


Interesting... right there in the Google search, prompted by Red Tory, is a reminder of Team Dion/Valeriote's original unforced error in this campaign, their outright plagerism of someone else's slogan. They actually sent out campaign liturature to dozens of households before the error was caught. One has to wonder how many thousand brochures they had originally printed, and how much money they basically threw out the window on pre-printed materials, all because they got caught ripping off someone else's idea. Which prompts another thought that deserves pondering... is this guy and his team really ready to effectively represent the people of the good City of Guelph? One has to wonder.

Again, my thanks to Red Tory for broadening the scope of this story. Let's see how long it takes for Team Dion/Valeriote to correct their second gaffe of the campaign, the website redirect. (and maybe spend some time sprucing up their Wikipedia page, while they're at it)

    Great blog. Whatever it takes to compensate for Gloria's lack of a real organization, respect from her base, or the legitimacy of being nominated democratically.

    Anyway, glad she has such a strong blog team that they can spend two days commenting on how their opponents Nominations website is still up. Maybe the fact that Gloria's is down has something to do with the fact that she lost hers to Brent Barr?

    Last time I checked, Ms. Kovach's site was up and running... there's no need for a nomination website when you're already the nominee, now is there?

    (and why Frank still had his up over a year after winning the nomination is beyond me... but thanks for pointing that out)

    This is a story? You poor thing - with all the stuff going on you find this a story.

    Pretty shallow

    I didn't seriously assume you couldn't use Google. I just couldn't resist the joke.

    No worries RT... it was a well placed shot on your part, but it ended up putting the story out there front and centre.

    So thanks... I guess. ;-)
