Craigslist, Free Expression and State Bullies

AGs v. Craigslist: Putting the Bully Back Into Bully Pulpit | Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Great editorial by Matt Zimmerman for Electronic Frontier Foundation.

The problem is as old as man.  Some nut kills people and whatever gave him the idea to do it is attacked.  Jazz, Rock and Roll, the Internet have all been blamed for one kind of deviancy or another, and politically-motivated lawyers, sheriffs, et al have used temporary hysteria to make names for themselves while trying to curtail individual rights.

EFF indicates the state attorneys general referenced in the article have no case, but at the rate laws are being discarded by our out of control government, we’re not sure Craigslist should fee so safe.
