Censored by NationMaster in Retaliation for a Negative Review

What do radical Islamists, Communist China, and NationMaster have in common?

All three want tdaxp to shut up



For now, I don't know what to do. The negative review Mr. Steinmetz complained about -- that he falsely accused of defaming his company -- is down. He never mentiond anything wrong with the second and third posts, and he even said that the person I criticized in them (Viswa Priya) no longe works for the company.

Suggestions? Help? Ideas.

For now I have started to allow me to keep track of all this without clogging up the tdaxp main page, but I am searching for something better than caving into the hostile "content managers" and staff at NatMast.

has a record of such thuggishness, and I do not feel comforatble with censoring this blog after the vaguest threat of "lawyers." , , and are too important for that... I hope.

Dan,

You are getting squeezed by a party that doesn't have a case, but is use to using "bigfoot" legal letters to get their way and keep their money.

After going over all of the letters I don't believe they have a case, other than to attempt you into an expensive legal situation.

I am forwarding by email to you a referal to an attorney and friend of mine who has helped me with a somewhat similar internet related issue.

Kind regards,

Bill Rice

I just posted a summary over on my blog.

I know they have a free legal clinic here on campus. They might for you too.

Ditto to Bill -- NationMaster is about to be hit with the unfortunate reality that movie reviews, book reviews, and website reviews are covered by the First Amendment.

The "Kabuki":http://www.mutantfrog.com/2005/10/12/kabuki-update/ dance of emails was intereting -- I would have taken it down and grabbed the money. It read as a battle of wits/nerves, and he just gave up and blew his top (after both of you were dancing around and talking about being "polite"). I would have just been up front -- give me the cash and I'll take it down.

These guys are going to waste a lot of money on their lawyers... if they actually bother. And while you're at it, please restore that post! I want to read what was so bad about them!
