HULL DAILY MAIL RESORT TO SMEAR CAMPAIGN TO DRIVE HU17.net OUT OF TOWN
In a flagrant display of malicious bullying, The Hull Daily Mail are about to produce an article which they hope will put an end to the HU17.net website. Because of the continued success of the website, with numbers of hits growing week on week, HU17.net is covering events in the area of Beverley much better than the local paper, and they are about to do something about it.
The success of HU17.net is down to one man, Paul Smith. He hasn’t had much of an education, and has had few lucky breaks. By his own admission, he isn’t great with words, but he has always shown enormous commitment and passion for the things he believes in. Several years ago, having been made redundant from an on-line finance company in Leeds, he taught himself how to build web-sites and tried his hand at running a company of his own, designing graphics and websites for companies, and facilitating internet marketing. He built the infrastructure of websites for anyone who wanted one, and soon had the likes of Lloyds TSB, Yahoo, Playboy, Nochex, Metacharge and OT Publishing on his books, although their requirements weren’t enormous and did not create much revenue.
