While being aware that an online blog is considered now to fall under the definition and statutes of publishing: equal to newspaper and magazine media, radio & television broadcast and wireless and satellite communication; I do not agree with certain legal precedents in regards to the policing and enforcement of what is or is not considered free speech via the computer network known as www, http, internet, TCP/IP.

I believe in responsible free speech on both sides of the spectrum. I do not believe in frivolous litigious behavior or action. By reading this blog, you release myself and all distributors of this online content of all liabilities in regards to libel issues and proceedings.
