Like rain on your wedding day

by Ted Frank on March 23, 2007

Recently, I left a comment on the Bizarro-Overlawyered website commenting on the Milberg Weiss Fellow’s appallingly dishonest misrepresentation of a Walter Olson column, reprinted on two or three other left-wing websites and still not retracted, though Milberg Weiss Fellow Cyrus Dugger has had time to write over a dozen other posts since then. The comment has not been posted.

Fair enough: it’s their website, and they’re entitled to slant their comments section so that critical comments are not posted, and I could use all the disincentives I can get not to waste time in comments sections of other blogs. But I find it quite amusing that this policy is engaged in by a website that (1) threw a veritable tantrum because we stopped posting obsolete trackbacks and accused us of censorship because we wouldn’t let Justinian Lane monopolize the comments section with off-topic comments and (2) cares more about hypocrisy than actual wrongdoing.

Give it up, man. They exist to yank your chain and waste your time – stop going there.

Ah, yes. The old “free speech for me, but none for thee…” bit.

I’m beginning to think that it’s become a national pastime.

The site is garbage. The only time I visit is when you link to it. (Hence, Lane’s unintentionally ironic censorship comments; if it weren’t for you, none of us would know about the site!)

You are like a defamation plaintiff: By suing the person defaming you, you simply draw attention to the undesirable remarks. If I were you, I wouldn’t bother linking to that site again. It really is trash.
