Staff at search engine WebTop are all heart. Disappointed to hear that their new boss - former Alta Vista UK MD Andy Mitchell - had failed to win the "Internet Villain" award at Britain's Net "Oscars" last week, they clubbed together to buy him a bouquet of flowers.

The spray was delivered on Tuesday and the message read: "Sorry you didn't win the Internet Villain award - we still love you."

It was signed "The WebTop Geeks"

El Reg understands that Mitchell wasn't in the office when the flowers were delivered - but he knows they're there. And he's taken it all in good spirit. Which is nice. We just hope he doesn't suffer from hay fever.

Oh, the "Internet Villain" of the year award went to Sir Peter Bonfield - head of BT - incase you didn't know. ®
