Mr Joseph Chikelue Obi vs. the Quackometer

January 23, 2008

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.
