Protect Free Speech Online
« on: November 23, 2006, 20:44:22 »


EFF is a donor-funded nonprofit group of passionate people—lawyers, technologists, volunteers, and visionaries — who depend on your support to continue successfully defending your digital rights. Litigation is particularly expensive; because two-thirds of our budget comes from individual donors, every contribution is critical to helping EFF fight and win more cases.

You Have the Right to Blog Anonymously
EFF has fought for your right to speak anonymously on the Internet, establishing legal protections in several states and federal jurisdictions, and developing technologies to help you protect you identity. With your support, EFF can continue to defend this right, conducting impact litigation to establish strict standards to unmask an anonymous critic in more jurisdictions.

You Have the Right to Keep Sources Confidential
In Apple v. Does, EFF is fighting to establish the reporter's privilege for online journalists before the California courts. With your support, EFF can defend news bloggers from subpoenas seeking the identity of confidential sources in more jurisdictions.

You Have the Right to Make Fair Use of Intellectual Property
In OPG v. Diebold, Diebold, Inc., a manufacturer of electronic voting machines, had sent out copyright cease-and-desist letters to ISPs after internal documents indicating flaws in their systems were published on the Internet. EFF established the publication was a fair use. With your support, EFF can help fight to protect bloggers from frivolous or abusive threats and lawsuits.

You have the Right to Allow Reader's Comments Without Fear
In Barrett v. Rosenthal, EFF is working to establish that Section 230, a strong federal immunity for online publishers, applies to bloggers. With your support, EFF can continue to protect bloggers from liability for comments left by third parties.

You Have the Right to Protect Your Server from Government Seizure
In In re Subpoena to Rackspace. EFF successfully fought to unveil a secret government subpoena that had resulted in more than 20 Independent Media Center (Indymedia) news websites and other Internet services being taken offline. With your support, EFF can hold the government accountable for investigations that cut off protected speech.

You Have the Right to Freely Blog about Elections
EFF has advocated for the sensible application of Federal Election Commission rules to blogs that comment on political campaigns. With your support, EFF can continue to protect political blogs from onerous campaign regulations.

You Have the Right to Blog about Your Workplace
EFF has educated bloggers on their rights to blog about their workplace and developed technologies to help anonymous whistle bloggers. With your support, EFF can help shape the law to protect workplace bloggers from unfair retaliation.

You Have the Right to Access as Media
EFF has educated bloggers on their right to access public information, attend public events with the same rights as mainstream media, and how to blog from public events. With your support, EFF can fight for bloggers right to access as media.

Know Your Rights and Prepare to Defend Them
EFF has created the Legal Guide for Bloggers to give you a basic roadmap to the legal issues you may confront as a blogger and a guide on How to Blog Safely. With your support, EFF can expand and update these guides.

With the title of this thread in mind, how come the post from Antipod was removed in reply to this thread?:http://www.timesharetalk.co.uk/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4476

One would be forgiven for thinking that Ian Podesta is in some way connected to this web site even if only as a moderator. If you are to gain the respect of users and grow a bigger and thriving member base that extends to more than spammers, you really need to be a little more impartial.

From what I can gather this web site is to share information about all aspects of timeshare, yet information is being censored. Why?

The response content by Antipod (Me under a different username) was that of authority as I have worked with Ipod. I am not saying that the beef he has with Sunterra is not justified or that his allegations against them are not true. But all users of this forum should know from someone who knows what kind of person Ipod is. My point is that his morels are no better than the people he is accusing and he is responsible for causing a great deal of misery from the decent, law abiding folk he has conned throughout 20 odd years in the timeshare industry.

If the aforementioned post is not reinstated then it is clear to me that this web site is totally pointless.

  Sorry  to disappoint you (and others) but the post has not been removed.
 It would seem that you have not yet found your way around using the system.

If you look you will find it is still there.

 I note that coincidentally the thread is about apologies!!

You may also like to read my response again, where I accept that Podesta is no Saint but that is not what we have been trying to change for the last 11 months. Pod is no longer doing what you allege. Until recently the others were doing what Pod alleged.

It is currently the third post from the bottom of the thread.

If you see a scroll bar to the side of a web page, there is stuff further down...[;)]
