When Free Speech Collides - Animal rights vs HUMAN rights
That is, the "Animal Rights" nutjobs on both sides of the argument.
Sit down, shut up and listen because I have had about enough of your crap.
There is this thing in the United States called free speech. This blog is an example of the ongoing celebration of literally the 1st right of every American. But freedom has it's limits. Just as you can't yell "fire" in a crowded movie theater, you can't threaten to cause harm to someone either.
Federal law exempts Mayor Sam, myself or anyone else from being personally liable for the shenanigans that takes place on this blog, however we will all cooperate with any legal order to compel evidence. This includes emails, ip logs (that would come from blogger) etc.
What we will NOT do is the following:
- we will NOT reveal the source of any bonafide tip (Personally, I would sit in jail first)
- we will NOT reveal the identity of any person or persons whom we contact to verify or clarify a story or potential story
- we will NOT get in the middle of a pissing match between individuals who believe that setting cars on fire is an acceptable form of expressing political disagreements
- If you threaten harm, deliberately disseminate libelous information, or cause yourself to become the subject of a criminal investigation we WILL hang your sorry asses out to pasture so fast you'll think that Ferret you rescued was a cow on a diet.
Have I made myself clear?
Hopefully we will be able to open this blog up again to unmoderated comments. My question for everyone is, if we can't... Which would you prefer? Moderated and anonymous or unmoderated and under a moniker?
Blog away, albeit on a time delay...
