The BBC's Click Online did a feature this past weekend on "The challenges of anonymous surfing" - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/click_online/4207778.stm . To demonstrate avoidance tactics, they used an anonymous, temporary e-mail address website. One of the websites the BBC journo visited was our very own mudii.co.uk:

As the screen scrolled, it showed our site, along with MUD1's and a couple of other online gaming sites. Only time will tell if his interest was personal, or an indication of an upcoming feature on online game-playing.

Hehe! Good stuff. Send it to Richard - he keeps an archive of such things.

I saw Richard on BBC News 24 a while ago, talking about online gaming. He was on for about a minute or so.

That might be this story http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/click_online/4747939.stm

The video stream is here:
rtsp://212.58.231.98/nfs01/BBCWorld/encodedfiles/worl_click_040805_show_hi.rm?provider=BBCWorld

(you might have to copy and paste the link into realplayer or whatever)

The story begins 11 mins 30 seconds in. Richard's (30 second) bit starts at 13 mins 55 seconds.
