Now Blogging Is Getting Litigious Among Bloggers


A conservative blogger is reportedly threatening a liberal blogger with a lawsuit.

(Should we all hire lawyers to parse our words and images now?)


  1. FYI I just had to delete a comment. A bit too xrated for this site, plus we try to avoid personal attacks. It’s always better to focus on the ideas and issues. So do leave a comment but let’s keep it clean and issue oriented.

  2. Tully says:

    Is it OK if we laugh at both of them?

    Seriously silly stuff, that.

  3. Chuck Prez says:

    Joe feel free to delete the above…i’m just playing (although i just contacted my lawyer and the above was parody so we’re safe)

  4. Joe Gandelman says:

    Yes. I have to delete it. We have a problem with comments, which include some complaints from not just a few readers but some cobloggers. I’m not around all the time but we will be giving gentle reminders.

    Taylor is a favorite blogger of mine and I read that article. She made a typo. Big deal. And the picture was a general google pic.
    I posted at Taylor’s that conservatives always bitch about judges and litigation yet are the first to run to a lawyer whenever their feeling get hurt.

  6. Jim S says:

    I’ve read about Schlussel and forced myself to read some of her stuff that was linked to. She one of those right wing bloggers that give them all a bad name.

  7. Kim Ritter says:

    vwcat- You are so right about conservatives and their attitudes towards litigation. I guess its the rest of us who aren’t supposed to sue when there’s a problem, lol!

  8. carpeicthus says:

    But liberals want people to be able to sue over silly things, like a corporation dumping toxic waste in your yard, instead of important things, like someone using a publicity photo.

  9. Sam says:

    The stick figure is a nice touch.

  10. Kim Ritter says:

    Remember, the Reagans were dead set against stem cell research until Ronnie got Alzheimer’s Disease. Then Mrs. Reagan became a champion for the issue.

    I’d say all concerned should take a deep breath–except there’s no judging how misjudged such a statement might be.

    debs must be hard up for caishe….jeez, this is stupid

    It’s always hard to know who looks more like the Salt Monster. Is it Debbie Schlussel? Or Susan Estrich?



    Salt Monster:

    Google thinks I’m all wet and says that Susan looks much much more like Balok — google Susan Estrich if you don’t belive me. But I think google is wrong here.
