Has The Times' paywall started leaking?

Having blogged for The Times for three years, I resigned several months ago due to their introduction of a paywall. My reason was simple: less people would now be able to view my blog. I concluded that 'inside the paywall no-one can hear you scream'. Given that Rupert Murdoch apparently sees the iPad as the saviour of newspapers I was therefore fascinated to find that The Times' blogs are not even included in the content provided. I was also interested to discover today that unlike the other blogs Mary Beard's excellent A Don's Life continues to appear outside the paywall but on a Times-branded site. Is this the first leak from the paywall? You can read her blog here.
