The following web link activities are explicitly prohibited by KPMG and may
present trademark and copyright infringement issues:
- Links that involve unauthorized use of
- Framing, inline links or metatags
- Hyperlinks or a form of link that
disguises the URL and bypass the homepage
Am I now going to get a notice to remove the
link? Oooh, I do so much want one. AutoZone didn't seem to have a complaint about my
linking to them but then again, I'm
not using their logo.
And in the case of KPMG
there, since I'm not using their logo ( … must … resist … urge … to
link … to … their … logo … ) and I'm not disguising the URL and bypassing their
homepage (I am bypassing their homepage up there, but I'm not
disguising the URL) so
the only thing left is that rather cryptic bit about “inline links,”
whatever they mean by that.
Also in their disclaimer, they say “KPMG is obligated to protect its
reputation and trademarks and KPMG reserves the right to request removal of
any link to our website.” Yup. You (KPMG) have that right, but that's
all you have. You're trashing your own reputation on the web just
fine—you don't need anyone else to help you there.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
