Yes, pirapoi. It means that, so far, this debacle has cost us well over $50,000...and, basically, we are back to square one with a full trial ahead. All because we run a website where one person's pseudonym insulted another person's pseudonym.
We are now required to come up with expert witnesses, too. This will likely cost us another $50,000 or so in itself.
We may be witnessing the end of internet forums and blogs that allow comments. Who in their right mind would want to risk being subjected to this kind of a financial assualt before even being shown to be guilty of anything?
"Some of my policing friends would be horrified by the fact that I`ve come to speak to an Anti-Racist Action conference this morning. Some of you are probably horrified by the fact that I just used the words `police`and `friends` in the same sentence." - Richard Warman, July 6, 2005
