According to Margo Kingstonís Webdiary Ethics:

I will correct errors of fact on Webdiary as soon as possible after they are brought to my attention and will disclose and explain any inadvertent breach of my ethical duties on Webdiary at the first available opportunity.

So why hasnít she disclosed or explained the stealth edit that fixed her 2UE/2GB blunder? Possibly Margo wants to avoid embarrassing comparison with Danna Vale, who made the same mistake.

Personally, I find Margo only a problem when taken seriously.

Is "Margo" an alias for Molly Ivins?

Used to be that "Miranda Divide" would pop up every time Tim mentioned Margo, shrieking "Blogmire, bloghead, skrawk!", and featuring a suspiciously familiar apostrophic incompetence, leading some perceptive readers to the obvious conclusion. After all, we've never seen Miranda and Margo together, have we? But Miranda has been worryingly quiet recently. Maybe the Tourette's makes it hard to type.

Maybe her head finally exploded.

Margo! Margo! Awk! Awk! Awk!

Curses! We shoulda known better than to speak the name, reg.

It's OK, Sortelli--without Miranda I'd never know how sad and insignificant I really am. But thanks to the durned management, now I'll never find out which particular flavour of phlegmy chewing tobacco Miranda was flecking all over the screen this morning.

We may be sad and insignificant, but we hold the power to drive Miranda absolutely freaking nuts.

MWA HA HA HA ha h... well, I mean even MORE than she already is, anyway... MWA HA HA HA HA!
