The official olympic website has an asshat linking policy (homage, via). Whoops, I just broke Rule A by not linking to the page using FRIGGIN CAPITALS. At first glance, the site looks quite good, but for me to say that they have better weather info than the BBC, I’ve just broken so many of the rules. And no, I don’t agree with the general terms and conditions – by linking to the site, I’m linking to it, not negotiating a contract – I’m perfectly content that any attempts to prosecute me for breach of contract for using the text “weather info” in the link would be laughed straight out of court. So why do they (and so many other websites) even bother with linking policies?
