Cancel Culture

I'm no Bob Loblaw, but in running a very fine blog for all these years it's been sensible for me to acquaint myself with the contours of defamation/libel law. Don't want to get sued out of existence!

For better or for worse there are various hurdles to making a case in this area, and certainly to making a case that will get you a big payout. Being able to show quantifiable economic damages, not just asserting "someone said a mean untrue thing about me," makes that easier!

Destroying up until that point lucrative voting machine businesses by making their reputations toxic to the governments that hand out those contracts... about as clear and quantifiable as you can get!

Suck it, Loud Obbs.
