Web Lawyer Draws Line On Free Speech
Although I’m a big fan of free speech as a Web lawyer, there are some limitations.
Unfortunately, some of the fruits and nuts inhabiting cyberspace have decided that it’s perfectly okay to show up at this blog to personally attack me, clients, and friends with name-calling plus false and defamatory accusations.
Because Internet anonymity brings out the worst in some people, it’s now time to change the rules a bit.

Thank you for understanding why these changes have been put into place. It’s a shame that a few crazies made this necessary.
