Reading this I think I misunderstood what you mean with "blog" I was
referring to a blog as a changing collection of articles not as
something that sends email. If we agree that an information resource
can't be the mail:sender of a mail then the statement

<#thismail> mail:sender <http://oskar.twoday.net>

is necessarily wrong, as a GET request to http://oskar.twoday.net is
responded with a 2XX response and with this response the resource in
unambiguously an information[1]. resource.
