How’s this for a “text-only format” link to your site, London2012?

by wfgodbold

Via Popehat, I learned of the terms of use for this summer’s Olympic Games official website, and this ridiculous section*:

a. Links to the Site. You may create your own link to the Site, provided that your link is in a text-only format. You may not use any link to the Site as a method of creating an unauthorised association between an organisation, business, goods or services and London 2012, and agree that no such link shall portray us or any other official London 2012 organisations (or our or their activities, products or services) in a false, misleading, derogatory or otherwise objectionable manner. The use of our logo or any other Olympic or London 2012 Mark(s) as a link to the Site is not permitted. View our guidelines on Use of the Games’ Marks.

Ken rightfully mocks them, pointing out that he intended his link to their site to portray them in a “derogatory and objectionable manner.”

I was more interested in the first part of the section, that deigns to give me permission to link to the site, “provided my link is in a text-only format.”

So, here goes:

…………………./´¯/) 
………………..,/¯../ 
………………./…./ 
…………./´¯/’…’/´¯¯`·¸ 
………./’/…/…./……./¨¯\ 
……..(‘(…´…´…. ¯~/’…’) 
………\……………..’…../ 
……….”…\………. _.·´ 
…………\…………..( 
…………..\………….\…

Ah, text. Is there anything it can’t do?
