I've so far seen umpteen posts of the "head honcho of LJ says evil things to the Russian press" meme and only one of anton_nossik's own words on the matter—which amount to "I'm not remotely in charge of LJ and I didn't say what people are saying I said".

I am not well-informed on the topic and I don't have a dog in this fight, but there is a reason journalists solicit direct comments from the source when possible rather than playing a game of telephone with machine translations. If you've been propagating "X says Anton Nossik says Y" links, please make sure you also link to "Anton Nossik himself says Z", even if you're doing it to say he's full of shit.

(Also, darkrosetiger has a followup or two to the post everyone is passing around. And a "haberdasher" and a "hatter" are not the same thing.)
