Bill Hibbs rounds up the aftershocks from the JL Kirk and Associates mess, and points out how eminently predictable it all was. From a quoted story by Brittney Gilbert:
I have never seen a move as ham-handed and wrong-headed as the one made by JL Kirk Associates and their attorney(s). I have sat back and watched in sheer amazement as this transparent and completely obvious attempt to bully a blogger has backfired a thousand times, over and over and over again. It's been fantastic and fascinating to watch.
There was nothing in Coble's account that even closely resembles libel or "false and defamatory statements." Not unless you think a negative film or restaurant review counts as the the same.
Pretty much says it all. Next time I do the presentation recorded here, I'll be using this mess as my primary example of what not to do.
