Hurray! Some good news for a change
A few days ago Change.org and SheWrites.com were similarly wise and compassionate.
Unfortunately, Facebook has not yet responded to complaints, and Blogger (Google) insists that I must get a judge to officially declare that material on Blogger is defamatory.
I have been falsely accused of (among other things) raping a four-year-old boy, raping a 15-year-old girl, raping my dog (try not to laugh) and burning my wife with cigarettes.
I said to a representative of Google, "If that isn’t defamation, what is? If those accusations were made about one of your friends or relatives -- or Larry or Sergey [Google founders] -- would you think it was defamation, or need to consult a judge? Your policy has led to people calling for my caging, castration and killing. My business is suffering, my wife can't sleep, and she expects we will be murdered this coming weekend.
