Who is "Mr. Z"?

A few years ago, I posted about a judge in New Zealand who just didn't understand the Internet. It turns out, they grow their judiciary pretty dense in the UK, too. Apparently, Sir Fred Goodwin, former chief of the Royal Bank of Scotland, has won a "superinjunction", preventing anyone in the UK from revealing that he is "Mr. Z", the plaintiff in a libel case. Yeah, like that's going to work out.


  1. What the fuck is this and what is on it?:

    1. Really? You couldn't even bother to find an even remotely more appropriate post?

      It was directory I setup in ancient times, basically to function like DropBox, long before DropBox was a thing. What's in it? Assorted crap. Pictures I wanted to hotlink on forums and such, a few files I needed to move from one computer to another, or onto my phone (such as it was at the time). Even some files from an old job that we needed to deliver to customers.

      Was there something there that gave you the screaming heebie-jeebies, necessitating the crass language?
