Web lawyer crazy guruWeb 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.

Web Lawyer Blog Comment Moderation

All comments will be reviewed by a blog administrator before being posted.

New Web Lawyer Comment Guidelines

Simple new comment guidelines have been put into place.

  1. Be polite. Make your point without using four-letter words.
  2. Practices not people. Discuss issues relevant to this post (good and bad) but do not include as examples the names of any specific companies, individuals, websites, products, or services.
  3. No advertising. Comment spam will be deleted.

Please continue to contribute your thoughts on blog posts.

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

To your online success!
