It’s the end of advocacy as you know it (and that’s no bluff)

It happened again yesterday. Another threat of a lawsuit, this time from a reader for whom I’d secured a ticket refund in 2015. Even though she’d filled out a form explicitly authorizing me to publish her details, and even though her story had been online for more than two years, she insisted that I redact her name immediately.

They want this site to disappear in 2018. Here’s what you should tell them.

They’re out to get us.

I know, because I see the “cease and desist” letters their law firms send us, demanding that we remove their executive contacts from our site. I read the hateful comments on their industry fan blogs. I also deal with their Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks that temporarily knock us offline.

Their goal? To denigrate, discredit and dismantle the advocacy you depend on every day.
