Hi all,

I've decided to (for the time being at least) remove the pubs linked data. Someone seemed to object to a review of their local (see here http://tinyurl.com/d36s4c) and having looked at some of the other (more negative reviews) I decided I didn't want this happening again.

While I didn't do the data capture or reviews the pubs were hosted on my website - and someone did find contact details and get in touch :( The reviews were all meant in fun, but some could be (and have been) taken the wrong way. So I'd sooner not risk getting sued or having my knee caps removed by angry locals!  

On the plus side it was a useful exercise for me...setting up some linked data. Maybe I'll put it back at some stage without the reviews. Remember in the words of the mighty Joe Strummer "You have the right to free speech as long as you're not dumb enough to actually try it" :)
