    The question comes to mind...can you actually defame a person named "bulldick".... the next question would be is "bulldick" an actual person?..

    Nina ...I wouldn't even respond to that "request"... if you DO get any kind of a court order... question it's jurisdiction ... based on the location of the server. who's this "Don" guy? hypothetically if he's bulldick he's roleplaying under a nom de plume... anything said would be in regards to the role play and NOT the actual actor.

    No.

    The letter has nothing to do with Nina beyond simply asking for information. There's no cause of action against her. He'll, the letter doesn't even ask for anything to be taken down off the site.

    Which, now that I think about it causes me to be skeptical about that letter. This would be the first out of quite a few I've seen at work over the years that isn't accompanied by directives to remove posts and preserve information.

    Hmm.

    We really need to get the [you] tag working so Aimee doesn't miss another golden opportunity.

    Lawyers will write a letter for you if you pay them, same as the candy store clerk will take your money in exchange for a chocolate bar. It's called making a sale.

    But, Don—I know you are reading this—you would do better by investing in a bottle of Prozac instead of lawyer fees. A bottle of Prozac costs less, lasts longer, and will be much more effective in resolving your real issues.

    Ponder this during your next lunch break in some exotic global location; damn, I am going to miss your phone cam shots of random trees and bushes.

    Bye-bye, sucker.

    No. Read what I said again. Look for the word "hypothetically". Also notice where I stated what the letter wanted, "wants Tucows to provide Nina's name".
    Seems like I summed it up pretty well to me.

    FWIW we are assuming it is Don but the post referred to in the letter mentions Clancy/Tarzan as well.
    hmmmm

    Do you have information as to why the case was withdrawn or are you making a supposition. It may be that a deal was struck in camera to withdraw upon consideration with the details locked from publication.

    Ya I saw that as well but it was more to do with the procedural aspect and its relation to the newspaper analogy revolving around "publisher"

    If Tarzan can give prescription advice.... then I feel fully vindicated in giving legal advice.... he's as much a doctor as I am a lawyer...
    :D

    So?
    You'd have to be pretty stupid to think it was me behind this, but not nearly as stupid as a guy trying to insinuate it's me.
    Thanks for your worthless comments so far—all of them.

    PZ said it was withdrawn on his website. I'm actually a fan of his.

    But what did Seed Media pay to get it withdrawn? PZ wasn't the one being sued.

    while this thread is certain to provoke strong opinions, please reserve any personal arguments/attacks for another thread.

    I'm only going by what's been said. I didn't read anything about Seed Media paying anybody anything. I wouldn't, after all, want to start a supposition about a settlement.

    Not to belabour the point but there are all sorts of reasons a suit may be withdrawn, not just because there appeared to be no case for the plaintiff. Settlements aren't always a matter of public record.

    ETA It appears I was mistaken, Myers was a party to the action.

    Derek, Mulch and Aimee's thoughtful comments about yours furthered this discussion thread. Instead of being angry at them for that, and misdirecting the anger onto me, you should be grateful instead of feeling jealous; look at what pettiness has done to Don.
