Calling All Right Wing Bloggers

Obviously this kind of thing has a potential chilling effect on all of us - bloggers, anyone who posts comments, etc. This is a nuisance suit without any legal merit, with the not veiled threat to "out" me as the real purpose.

So, I would suggest that bloggers do what bloggers can do - and delink this guy if you have him on the blogroll. Over to you, AG Android.

In my correspondence with Luskin he asked that I take down the post because of the comments, and said I had an obligation to do so. I asked if he meant a legal or ethical obligation, and he didn't respond. I then informed him that if he would tell me which comments he specifically was unhappy with I would be happy to delete them. He declined this offer, and said I should just take them all down.


Here specifically is what I wrote to him:

There are a lot of comments. I'm sure not all of them fit your definition, and I cannot determine which ones do. I can't delete all of the comments without deleting the post, and deleting them one by one would take a very very long time.

If you would like to send me the links to the specific comments (the "#" after each post in the comments box) that you consider troubling, I'd be happy to take a look.
