So I received my latest cease and desist letter from some lawyer today. Basically on one of my blogs I called his client into question who may or may have not been a child predator. One of the requests the shyster made was for me to remove the post. Fine.
I’m not opposed to removing the occasional post. If it’s what I call a filler post and is just there to take up space and is not a major story I’ll consider removing it that is if the parties involve ask politely. If the man in question had just asked nicely I probably would have removed the post with no problem. But no, this tool needs to go get a lawyer and send me a C&D. It will be framed with the rest of them. It makes me feel like I’m doing my job. Anyway, long story short (too late) I removed the post because I really don’t feel like being sued whether or not the suit has no merit.
However one of the other requests that was made was that I offer an apology to the man in question and leave it posted on the site for 30 days. I’ll be damned if I post an apology to a man whom I believe to be a serial child predator even though he’s never been jailed. You can make me remove a blog post but it will be the coldest day in hell when I apologize to an ‘alleged’ pedophile.
