I'm worried there are too many shills on here.

Hahaaha...I almost wish there WAS SHILLS!

Damn man, you waited 35 minutes before you went ballistic! You got to give people time to see a thread before you start railing against them for not responding.

It might take a day or two for people to get to it. Like me, I had the window up all night and am just getting to it now.

I haven't had the chance to review the case yet, but it's hard to see how publishing a link alone can be anything other than protected speech.

Would publishing the address where a crime had been committed be a crime? Would describing the route a getaway car used to flee a crime be a crime?

Seems ripe for appeal, and a switch of lawyers.

Anyone else notice more and more cases that almost sound like they have to have been sabotaged by the Defense Counsel to have lost? I thought that EFF even had a few precedent setting cases in this regard.

Thanks for bringing the story to our attention OP.
