ABC UK, on the allegations that preceded the resignation of publisher Andrew Langhoff:
The payment arrangements underlying this contract were complex and at times circuitous but ABC has found no clear evidence that these copies should be regarded as not compliant with the Reporting Standards for International Publications. Given the questions raised ABC has initiated a review of the Reporting Standards governing circulation arrangements of this sort to ensure they fully reflect industry requirements and provide the requisite clarity for all concerned.
Dow Jones says “that while the copies were properly counted under ABC rules, the program itself was unnecessarily complex and not one we will replicate in the future. We appreciate the ABC UK putting aside the misleading and sensationalistic press coverage from some media outlets and conducting a thorough and dispassionate review.”
Scottish developer Matt Gemmell on turning off comments on his blog:
Between responding via email, mentioning me on Twitter, or writing a response on your own blog, you have plenty of excellent ways to participate in discussion. I’m definitely not going back. If you have a blog, I’d advise you to consider switching comments off too.
