  •  OK. You're on ignore now (7+ / 0-)

    You can't slander someone like this:

    When you're criticised for your ethics by Larry Flynt, then you have really limbo danced under any professional standard.

    It's one line in a long diary. Call the moderators in if you need to. I think you're being a pain in the butt. But that's a personal opinion too.

    •  Okay, I'm gone. (0+ / 0-)
      •  OK. Before you go... (5+ / 0-)

        I really didn't mean to offend you. It was just a passing aside: Flynt having the high ground over Murdoch. I think he does.

        My one personal experience of Flynt's work (I'm not a consumer of porn nor worried about it) was in LA once, when I went for a coffee on Sunset Boulevard. I had no idea it was the Hustler HQ, and was talking to my eight year old son and looking at the coffee menu: cum juice cappuccino etc.

        My son couldn't understand why I was pausing while making my order.

        Go in peace.

          waiting until Hustler.com's customer service chat-line opens on Monday. They get a link to your original diary and it's up to them whether they decide to sue you, me and dKos. I have nothing to lose. The woman I dated who was in Hustler had nothing but good things to say about them, so, you're impugning their ethics makes me a witness. And I can find a whole lot of other people who have been very happy working with Flynt Publications.

          Ta-ta!

          •  Ah. I reply with courtesy... (5+ / 0-)

            ...you reply with threats.

            My bad. Nice to know you. And good luck with your free-speech-chilling, dude.

              slander is not. Dude.

                •  Do you really want to make your stand on (0+ / 0-)

                  Larry Flynt's ethics?

                  Really? With books and a movie and all the legal citations the man has as a defender of the First Amendment?

                  Update your diary, post an apology and it all goes away. I'm a newbie, don't know how the law affects the site provider, dKos, I suspect it's not good. If you really are a Brit, your laws are more restrictive than ours, and if Flynt Publications has an outlet in England the actual monetary loss to dKos could be substantial.

                  Really, just quit. I don't care about your conservative feelings about porn, and your religion hasn't been mentioned yet, but really, this is where you want to make a stand? Slandering the ethics of a company that pays it's bills, and it's people, and works for freedom, sexual and otherwise? This is where you want to make your stand?

                    writing on the wall, there are no moderators anymore. I'm asking the people at Flynt publications if this is actionable, and if it is, what liability dKos has.

                    Larry Flynt has been libeled and defamed, here, without recourse, and maybe his lawyers don't care. If they don't, fine. If they do, let the law take it's course. But I'm tired of the Puritanical, restrictive stance the Left has been taking about sex.

                    Censorship belongs to the right, it's our job to fight against it.

                    few incarnations now. It's quite interesting.
