Mr Joseph Chikelue Obi vs. the Quackometer

Once again, the quacks are at it with the legal threats. This person in particular seems highly sensitive to criticism, despite the fact he draws a lot of it.

Magnificently blogged by No Nonsense! because the Quackometer‘s hosting company, Netcetera, is being rather spineless, and Le Canard Noir has been forced to take down the ‘offending’ pages, despite the fact no-one has explained what exactly is defamatory.

I would encourage all bloggers with one iota of commonsense, a dislike of extortion and a liking for free speech to blog this issue.

    Well said!

    It’s a pity Netcetera don’t have an email address because I do think it would be a good idea to send them the links to Obi’s press coverage. Really they are a bunch of spineless twats. They want the business benefits the Internet can bring them but they aren’t prepared to lift a finger to defend the legal rights of their clients from whom they profit. Bastards!
