As almost everyone should be aware by now, there’s been discussion over the past month or two about Zak Smith, aka Zak Sabbath. I did not address this previously because I prefer sticking to more practical matters.
But there are two practical matters relevant to me and my blog: I do not wish to promote Zak in the blog, but at the same time, I don’t think I should remove references to Zak when I talk about something that is vaguely inspired by something he has said or made.
So this is my practical solution:
- I will not delete Zak’s name from old posts, but will probably not mention him in the future.
- I will not delete references to Vornheim in old posts, but will remove any links to where to buy it, assuming I find any such links.
- But I will not promote his blog, so I am changing any reference to it in old posts to “[his blog]” or the equivalent, and changing any links to point back to this post.
