NOTICE! YOU HAVE BEEN SUED
Well, Aaron finally got sued by TP/1p - the scum of the online world, and is now considering pulling content rather than fight a ridiculous battle.
As far back as June 4th, 2004 I removed a comment that I thought was offensive, and I thought generally I was keeping the content in bounds of any sort of legal limit. It is ok to have an opinion. It is ok for others to post their opinions. Since the initial time someone cold called me stating they were from Traffic Power the content has aged over a year and never once has Traffic Power attempted to contact me outside of blog comments, a cease and desist, and a lawsuit.
Could you imagine being a client for a company that communicates like that?
As Dave Taylor notes this sets some important precedents (even if aaron pulls the comments) for liability of user comments - (yes, i know it's not the first case ever, but it is important).
Personally, im not sure we, or anyone else should let TP get away with this - they're scum, and alledged scammers, but im not sure what the answer is...
Also, they're suing a bunch of other people, and we'll probably be on the list, though they can fuck right off as far as im concerned - they'd have a hard job doing anything here in Denmark.
