This extraordinary story comes from an Irish solicitor that represents an organization on the receiving end of dunning “letters, emails and phone calls.”

How ridiculous. It’s the same as saying to a person ” here, it’s in this book, look it up”.
Is this just simply greed or simply stupidity?
Thanks Kathleen, good article.

Stupidity. It is time for people to stop linking to Irish newspapers. what is next for Ireland? Will scientists have to pay fees to list references in their publications?
