To whom it may concern.

Last night we received a comment on this post. The recipe was posted by Jan and contained a recipe taken from the excellent Sainsbury's site. As always when placing dietary information or a recipe, we always give a live link back to the source. As can be seen at the aforementioned post.

I deleted Pretty Dippy's comment. It appeared to me overly negative and offered no constructive criticism. Dippy is clearly working to an agenda, what that may be, I suspect we will never know. Dippy aka alexg20 appears to have a reading problem, the link crediting Sainsbury's was not only in bold text but also in bright green. Dippy also placed a comment on the Sainsbury's site.

We are regular shoppers at Sainsbury's and recommend their food and recipe's to our friends and readers, perish the thought we would try to take the credit for others work. We place many recipe's and links to many sites, and have been thanked for doing so. As Dippy said "I'm all for sharing but surely Sainsbury's should get a mention" I am all for sharing Dippy, with this in mind, may I respectfully suggest you visit the excellent Specsavers site, you are clearly in need of an optician.

Sounds like you're having a rough go with comments. Good thing you have moderation. That must help a great deal.

For every negative blogger comment there are many positive ones but it's still disappointing that this happens. I've always found this blog to be above board with credit due and proper links.
And, I enjoy the content!

So sorry to hear this, totally uncalled for attack.

"We work for love, not money." Love that.
Links are always shared on this blog and credit is given where credit is due. So...I can't see the problem. Onwards and upwards....:)

This is so unfortunate when you are trying to share healthy recipes and tips. I hope it is all taken care of now and accepted as a misunderstanding by that negative commenter who obviously did not read your post before commenting.

Who knows! May be that guy on statines which may influence his reading comprehension.

Oh the shame of it! What a complete and utter idiot! Slyly and sneakily contacting Sainsbury's like a snake, whilst doing a bit of arse licking by saying they'd be making the recipe that night! Only to be told that they are an illiterate idiot that obviously needs to visit Specsavers! Shame!
