James has always been a friend of this blog (as indeed has Crushed) and his visits and comments have been regular and welcome.
I think that this will be true for very many fellow bloggers.
The appearance of the Higham avatar seems to be pretty ubiquitous on ‘mybloglog’ visitor widgets everywhere as indeed do the pithy two line comments left on virtually every post one publishes.
How the man ever found the time to do that much visiting and commenting is beyond me.
Indeed James was instrumental in my application and acceptance into Blogpower. Still for me one the highlights of my blogging career to date.
I can’t comment on the rights and wrongs of the case that has seemingly brought this situation to pass. I think most visitors will know what I’m talking about. I don’t know enough of the fine detail and that’s when it passes beyond my ability to make an objective comment and so where I will decline to do so.
All I do know is that be he infuriating or enlightening (and whether in my opinion right or wrong) James, at least here, will be missed.
I hope that his ‘final’ post was made in haste and that normal service will be resumed soon.
