From this moment on may the practice of asking others to go through your blog to anothers for whatever reason be known as linkjacking. And that Instapundit is the first victim of deliberate linkjacking.
So, if you have a blog, you have a decision to make: To keep InstaPundit or to dump InstaPundit?
Well, I've to the answer: DO BOTH!!
How, you ask? Link to InstaPundit through this little blog! I mean, even if you don't like what Glenn Reynolds said, there's a chance you'll still read or refer to his blog as a source of information or a lead/source of tips. And, you might want to refer to a post of his.
But if you've decided you want to "de-link" InstaPundit, you can still refer to him without giving him the links. Give them to me instead! Remember this post?
Here's how you'd link to InstaPundit: http://www.basilsblog.net/?url=http://www.itsapundit.com/
Here's how you'd link to his "ACLU does good work" post: http://www.basilsblog.net/?url=http://itsapundit.com/archives/025206.php
So, to link to InstaPundit or a post on his site, preface it with http://www.basilsblog.net?url=
After that part, put what you would normally put for the link.
They say parody is the sincerest form of flattery. Or they don't. Gotta admit this is pretty funny, though.
