ok darling ones, i haven’t been straight with you. there is more going on than meets the eye.
my sleepless nights of late have been the result of worry over jason hatch’s (of your-site.com) pursuit of legal action against me.
i was trying to be noble. trying to rise above all the nonesense and let it just die. apparently, jason thinks i have defamed him by stating my opinion about your-site.com. today, i was contacted via e-mail by his lawyer. jason wants an apology. any apology i give would be insincere. i have apologized for being a hot-tempered brat, because i was– that i cannot deny. but last time i checked being a hot-tempered brat was not illegal, and if it is, there are a whole hell of a lot of four-year-olds who could find themselves in deepshit.
in my opinion jason is being a big baby about me calling his company a bad name. it seems that you have to couch everything with “in my opinion” so it’s clear that i am stating my opinion and not actual fact. apparently, it’s not clear that everything i write on my own personal website is my opinion.
in my opinion i am not a legal expert. but in my opinion you can state your opinion. i don’t think that’s illegal in the united states yet. this little tidbit of information makes me feel that maybe i am not totally whacked.
i wonder if k-mart sued the makers of the movie rainman. because raymond babbit said that “k-mart sucks.” and i do believe (at least it is my opinion) that a lot more people saw the movie rainman than read iwilldare.com on a daily basis.
in my opinion, i am a bit worried that the makers of digiorno pizza might have a case against me because i said the sausage on their pizza tastes like dirty feet. the makers of juicy juice might also have a case against me because i said juicy juice was 100% crap.
in my opinion i am more than a little worried and upset about this. i could have my facts all wrong, maybe you can’t call someone an unethical bastard, even if that’s what you believe.
in my opinion it would be much easier to just let the disgruntled customer look like a hot-tempered fool than to pursue legal action and look like an intolerant, censoring, cry-baby.
in my opinion i am most angry that i have allowed jason hatch’s threat have a chilling effect on what i write. i am outraged (again in my opinion) that even as i type these words my hands shake with a weird mix of fear and anger.
in my opinion it sucks giant donkey balls that i no longer feel i am free to express my own damn opinion on a website that i make just so i can express my own damn opinion.
in my opinion i wonder if it’s too early to contact the ACLU to see if i can’t get some help with this case. but then (also in my opinion) i am not sure if it’s even a case yet.
in my opinion this situation is making my tummy hurt and causing me to not sleep.
