I'm posting some of the Jackster Chronicles over there. Had we not had the first round, she would be having her lawyers writing to them threatening legal actions if they don't get her arse off of there and stop letting me post it all over Europe and the globe. Since round one, they don't have to worry about a thing. And I would suggest to them that they hold firm on principle AND for practical reasons...because if the Jackster's feelings or invasion of privacy, or spreading her and rumors about her on the internet can be used as a legitimate claim to get "hurtful" writings removed...it might not be long before the Turkish government gets around to demanding that we watch out what we say about them, because THEY are getting their feelings hurt.
See, it's an imperfect world, but better one or two slimey things get by, than we shut down free speech in a Jackster's case, without thinking that we just silenced ourselves on just about every other issue.
Ain't Civics FUN?
