The rush started just before midnight when CNN.com reciprocated with a link to my YouTube ordered to reveal its viewers to Viacom post. (CNN has linked to Keltruth a few times, but in this instance it was most generous as I added very little to the quote from its site!) Strangely enough, the very first visitor to the YouTube story was the US Department of State. The State Department appears to be taking an interest in this case.

Later in the day, I made a comment on Barbados Free Press concerning the leniency of Bajan courts regarding violent crimes against women. This brought many visitors to Keltruth.

He was “given a suspended sentence and ordered to do community service”.
