Regular readers know that Bulgaria has a secret agenda to destroy astronomy. Not satisfied with all the Universe, though, they are also trying to undermine copyright laws:

[Bulgarian Forein] Minister Kalfin started his own blog, to be found at, where he will be discussion issues about Bulgarian foreign policy, EU membership, etc. The blog is based on open source software - Wordpress, and is the first such an initiative by a Bulgarian minister. Mr. Kalfin invited Joichi Ito to become an author at his blog - an invitation that was accepted by the famous Japanese IT-investor and blogger.

Open-source software? WordPress?? Ye gods. What's next? MySpace?

If anyone is curious, this entry is mostly a response to this.
