The revenge of the sub

img src="" border="0" title="We've moved to" alt="We've moved to" />
While I was adding my no-doubt unwanted and ill-advised editorial notes to Dan's last post I got carried away. I thought I'd continue in a new post to reduce the wrath.

This isn't the first time Coren has done this type of thing. His previous victim was fellow reviewer Feargus O'Sullivan. Before that, an unfortunate magazine sub-editor caught both barrels of Coren's direct email style for altering the typographers favourite phrase, the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

According to Giles, this latest email is "ancient". Could its leaking be connected with the recent emergence of a foul-mouthed Coren caricature on twitter? This assumed-to-be poseur kept me amused this week but has now sadly (if understandably) been booted from the service.

So is this an example of the sub's (or subs') revenge? The suspect list must include Owen, Amanda, Ben and Tony from the Times' editorial team who were the apparent targets of Coren's rage.

**Update: The Times subs have responded.

I am happy to see we are entering a sweary phase again. It's been fucking ages.
