What if websites and blogs could be sued for libel or slander? The New York Times was sued for printing libelous statements many times. How long would
ATS last if it could be sued for letting people slander others? How many people on this site have said things about the Rothchilds or Rockefellers
that could be viewed as slander. And yes, I know a case like that just failed in England; but, there were facts that hurt the case, such as the fact
that Mr. Rothchilds was in the meeting with the two people and did bring them together (for those of you following the news).
How long would any conspiracy theory website be up if they began getting sued for outrageous claims (true or not) and threats? Where would people
discuss theories that were not mainstream if this happened? Recently a blogger was sued and lost to the tune of over $2 million for slandering a
politician on their blog. I don't have any idea how much money ATS makes through advertising and whatever; but, I guarantee you that if they could be
sued for things that people say that could be found to be slanderous, they would have to clamp down or kill the site. They wouldn't have a choice.
Just something to think about.
