I'm going to be signing books at Borders in Cardiff on Saturday 30th May between one and two o'clock. And I'm rather looking forward to it.

I hope people show up...

Censorship is bad.

We know this. Many of us do what we can to fight against it. This is right and proper, and  the way that things should be. We have a duty to protect the right to free expression, even - especially - when the opinion being expressed is one with which  we disagree.

But I'm getting sick of people screaming about censorship where none exists. The whole "Amazonfail" debacle over Easter was a cock-up blown out of all proportion by sensationalism and idiocy, and now I'm seeing more cries of people's net access being censored because browsing to 'adult' sites is turned off by default with certain mobile internet providers. I had this with Vodafone, and opening up my phone to as much smut as I wanted took precisely one phone call to prove that I was old enough to legally behold a pair of breasts.

So here's a point I want everyone to think on for a second: if you keep crying wolf like this, nobody's going to pay any attention when things start going wrong for real. You might have the right to shout about this all you want, but do me a favour and mediate that with a little common bloody sense, OK?
