Blog El Paso Times Might be sued.

Article from the Sunday Times. Makes one think? I wonder will McDowell's libel reform's effect blogs. This is the El Paso Times. Update: the El Paso Times claims that it was all an April Fools joke. A lot of debate about the site and it's often libelous content. Here and here and here

Interesting how the Fine Gael politician is portrayed as dismissive of the harm and intimidation, and El Paso's stifling of individual freedom of expression under the guise of exercising its own freedom of speech, as described in the story.

Reminds me of the perennial bully's excuse 'I was only messing, I don't know why you're taking it so seriously'. These sewer rats squeal know how to squeal when they're cornered, when it's too late to do them any good.

We'll never make it as a knowledge based economy if we don't care to become a manners-based society.

Our betters seem to think manners are for others.
