Original Message I was amazed to find that no threads were on GLP today discussing this landmark case against internet freedom and freedom of the press. We are truly doomed. I only heard of this case a few weeks ago and assumed it would be a hot-potato issue here among the freedom-mongers on GLP. I was sadly disappointed that nobody even posted anything regarding this decision. God help us.
