No can do man, sorry. Freedom of speech doesn't apply to Sherdog, since it's a Private site. They've asked us to remove all posts and threads, so it has to be done.

Yes, there have been threats of legal action.

I must say that I'm unhappy about this too. Like it or not, the LI incident in '89, the NYE scandal with Nick and Matt, and the DJ Jackson sexual assault case are all inexorably linked to the jiu-jitsu community.

I think it's important that people have access to information on these things, and the discussion threads that were deleted had lots of details in them that people need to see so that we can do our best as a community to prevent these things from continuing to happen.

I normally try to stay out of this stuff because I'm not personally affiliated with the people involved and I don't feel that I have anything to add regarding my feelings (outrage, disappointment, frustration, disgust) that hasn't already been said by someone else and in a more eloquent fashion. Talking about these things is important, in virtual communities like this one and in real-life public forums. It is our duty as rational, moral agents to do our best to protect our peers and children from sexual abuse and abuse of any other kind.

Just wanted to offer my two cents.

it is what it is. most of us know the truth; the newer members will eventually find out either through word of mouth or through a bit of internet research.

Yeah I assumed. We actually had some extended discussions in those deleted threads of his legal threats to other sites and several practicing lawyers actually commented that he had no case to pursue and that attempting to litigate these cases would be extremely expensive for him and he'd still likely lose in court.

The threats are empty, a feint. And sherdog has caved to them.

if all the "info" gets deleted they won't.

Or pushed out of the first page of results they won't.

That's what Lloyd is trying to do thru bullying tactics and threats. Get as much removed as possible (so you can't find it) and then push the other results to page 3+ and no one will dig deep enough.

If Lloyd had the extra money on hand to pursue expensive, frivolous litigation, the IRS would levy it to satisfy his outstanding liens.

Exactly. He doesn't have the money to pursue these suits. The owners of Sherdog are in no legal danger. They balked at an empty threat.
