Updated below – apparent timelines added
Update 2 – JoNova’s blog time corrected
Update 3 (23rd Nov) – revised timeline – motive for choice of sites now clear.
Climategate 2.0 – it’s old news now, but this one will run and run (we all hope). Who got the link? WUWT, Climate Audit, the Air Vent as before and this time too Tallbloke’s Talkshop and JoNova. Anyone else?
Well…. we got one here too – link with an IP address in Russia (the same one as the comment left at WUWT).
I happened to check the blog at lunchtime, something I almost never do. According to the site stats one person had followed the link, but that was all. Not knowing what else to do after the furore last time, I took it off-line until I had time to look into it. By the time I’d got home it was all over the blogosphere. Why here? No idea, perhaps the links with WUWT, but thanks for the gift FOIA. Just came on a bad day for me.
In fact it couldn’t have come at a worse time from a work viewpoint (even over and above the lightweight blogging of the last few months). I’ll allow myself some time to peruse and enjoy at the weekend. Until then I have to resist; by then all the good stuff will be out.
Just wonderful though! Thanks ‘FOIA’.

Update 2: the order is now corrected as JoNova’s blog is on EST. This was posted in haste late last night so I may have other times wrong too. I’m still puzzled at being included.
Update 3 (23rd Nov) : Damn I knew I had the Air Vent time wrong. I was tired and thinking visually and ‘Michigan’ was the first name that jumped out when I was checking time zones. Of course Jeff’s in Chicago, IL. Duh!
Having just posted a comment at the Air Vent tonight, Jeff’s blog is 4 hours behind GMT (not 5, or even 6), so that puts the comment on his site at the same time as JoNova’s (the blog times won’t be synchronous). 20 Minutes later, a comment on Tallbloke’s site, then a further post at WUWT with note to the moderator (Tallbloke moderates there) then another copy here 10 minutes later (I’m another moderator, so that explains my question of why here). Unfortunately I’m up to my eyes in the day job at that time on weekdays and only moderate evenings and weekends.
