In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
A matter of taste
So, I’ve discovered in my blogging of late that adding pictures to posts can really liven up a blog. It adds value at the margin.
I’m not sure if everyone will agree or not, but I have a request: Can we add more color to these digs? Or at least more black and white?
More attention to this detail, I suspect, would add quite a lot to this place, which can feel awfully stark at times. A blog is more than words, after all. It’s a sort-of multi-media experience. Or at least I think it ought to be.
On top of that, I have some redesign ideas swirling about that require pictures to function at all, so we’d best get practicing. And adding a picture to a post can add a double meaning or enhance or drive home the point of the piece – or even just give a visual to a book or a person you happen to be discussing. It can make a post show up in more searches, too.
So…as hands-off as I am, please consider sprucing up your lovely writing with some lovely images.
If anyone has a problem with this, of course, it’s not a huge deal. And feel free to yell at me in the comments. I know I’ve been very meta lately. I expect it will continue, for good or ill.
