A post with a life of its own

Some time back, unusually for me as I normally stay away from memes and find media hysteria disconcerting, I picked up on the efforts to find Madeleine McCann and linked to the story on the basis that it would do no harm to make more people aware of what had happened and possibly increase the chances of her being found.

One or two people commenting on my post referred to the use of mediums in the search, those comments got linked to by bulletin boards frequented by people into such stuff, and given the foibles of Google I am now ranking highly for searches for "find madeleine" and my original post has had over 100 comments.

I am in two minds whether to take the post down or not but it is fascinating to watch it take on a life of its own.
