Re: This is a MASSIVELY irresponsible post
You see the *force* of the argument Sirius Lee makes here? "Knick-knacks", "selling... to drivel blogs", the implication that critics lack "the wit and ability to accommodate the change".
I wonder what you sell online Sirius Lee? By your standards I may be lacking in wit and ability, but I am a Perl programmer with a product used by folks globally for over a decade. What little *wit* I may have tells me it is no longer worth the candle selling into the EU. My ability will be expended in programming a filter to turn away EU punters. Is that what the EU is supposed to encourage?
When you say "..it was announced in 2005 so its not like there has not been time to get with the programme", perhaps you missed my previous post about how neither of my LTD businesses have received any communication on this whatsoever? I take you are in business selling digitally to the EU? Please detail the official notifications you received of this change.
