John doesn't think johnhowardlies

Some of you may have seen a website called johnhowardlies. Apparently the federal government has called for an investigation into it. From the SMH:

"Senator Abetz said he had asked the electoral commission to investigate if the site breached a section of the Commonwealth Electoral Act which requires electoral material to be authorised."

Needless to say the site has been taken down for a 'revamp'. (So if you were planning to look at it you'll have to wait.)

Howard seems to have forgotten that the one sure-fire way to get people to visit a site is to mention it, preferably negatively, in the mainstream press.
