Spocko’s Brain Back Online

After the web site Spocko’s Brain was shut down last week because the hosting company 1an1 got threats from Disney lawyers. A number of people contacted me about hosting it. I’m not easily intimidated by lawyers so I did it. Spocko is now hosted at Computer Tyme Hosting and it’s here to stay.

I hast a lot of sites that no one else will touch. That’s because I’m legal savvy and lawyers just don’t scare me. I’ve received a number of threats by lawyers to take down free speech sites and unless they have firm lehal grounds I tell them to go screw themselves. I’ve even been sued a few times and in all instances the cases were dismissed and the threatening lawyers had to face the judge for ethics issues. I am a strong supporter of free speech and I don’t like slimeballs like Disney trying to shut down critics.

Good work. Very logical. Perhaps the equivalent of a nerve pinch?

And re. Disney to paraphrase Spock:

“It is curious how often we humans manage to obtain that which we do not want”.

Live long and prosper.

You’re treading a fine line between self-righteousness and arrogance. We have freedom of speech in the U.S., but that doesn’t give individuals the right to hide behind a “handle” and commit slander and libel. If you think it through a little more carefully, perhaps you won’t be quite so quick to defend “Spocko”.

IANAL, but perhaps the previous commenter should familiarize him/herself with the actual definitions of slander and libel.
