Well folks, despite my best efforts to create a place where people could comfortably discuss issues about the Plan of Liquidation, Settlement or any other issues related to the demise of Heller Ehrman LLP, I’ve seen a definite up tick in comments that are not only crude, cruel, personal attacks and outright lies as part of a disinformation campaign.
Bloggers hate to stifle speech let alone moderate and edit comments. But I won’t tolerate the posting of what someone purports to be a fact in the comments when I know from personal knowledge that it is untrue. This is not a matter of opinion or view on an issue – this is when someone descends into rumor mongering disguised as fact in order to intimidate or sway opinions.
For now, heavy moderation of comments will take place. I’d hate to turn off comments all together but that’s a consideration. I highly suggest to those who want to turn this site into one of anarchy rather than one looking for solutions and providing assistance, to set up your own blog. It is simple, takes less than five minutes and really, anyone can do it.
Over and out.
