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.
So I read about this game called “The Shivah” coming out on Steam in which you play a disillusioned Rabbi who has been implicated in a murder. How do you *NOT* buy that? Anyway, so far, I’ve had two major interactions with two different people. In one, I’ve reconciled myself with the wife of the guy who got murdered (it seems that he and I had a falling out a few years back… huh) and got myself thrown out of a synagogue after getting into a rabbinical “do you think I won’t be able to answer a question with a better question?” fight with a rabbi.
Seriously, under normal circumstances? I would *NEVER* go to that synagogue.
Anyway, it’s one of the most interesting adventure games I’ve played in a long, long while and Maribou enjoyed sitting next to me as I played the first hour or so. If you’re finding yourself saying “how come I never play a disillusioned rabbi anymore?”, you need to pick up The Shivah.
So… what are you playing?
