Fat lady hasn't sung

It ain't over until the fat lady sings.

Especially in view of this being April Fools' Day, I am awaiting confirmation that the person who asked me to remove material was not an imposter.

  1. There exist methods that could make it difficult for el naschie to sue or to remove material. For example, things in p2p networks are difficult to remove and it is more difficult to sue. And there exist these pages:

    Wikileaks is developing an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. Our primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we are of assistance to people of nations who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations.

    Wikileaks is an uncensorable version of Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. It combines the protection and anonymity of cutting-edge cryptographic technologies with the transparency and simplicity of a wiki interface.

    Just put all your material in wikileaks and link it on your blog. Then, el naschie won't have any chance to get it removed. Perhaps you can also anonymise articles about other persons involved and it should be fine.

  2. Wikileaks sounds like a great idea. I'm not worried though about being sued myself. Nor about the information on this blog disappearing. Lots of people have downloaded it. If the request to remove material is genuine, it's not a matter of where it's hosted, but that it's got an Internet home at all.

  3. There is no reason to take the material down, even if the request is legitimate.
    Someone posted something that is now contentious, perhaps on his/her own blog. The person was threatened with legal action and removed it. Now it reappears elsewhere, through no action of the original writer, and in a place over which the original writer no longer has control. The original writer, having made a good faith effort to remove the contentious material, incurs no further liability.
    At this point, the party entirely at fault is one Jason (of Friday 13th fame), who has indicated he is not concerned about his legal exposure.
    Hence no action need be taken.

  4. Anonymous, I agree with you. I should do a post on this.

  5. It is just as well we didn't choose Wikileaks to host the Baez material.
