I think it is hugely ironic that a company that makes its money running fan message boards is threatening to sue Mike Arrington partly because of what some commenters said at the end of one of his posts.
I know a lot about message boards. I know a lot about sports message boards. I know that the last thing I would ever do as a message board owner is take the position that an interactive site operator is responsible for content posted by its users.
I wonder if anyone ever said anything nasty about someone else on one of Rivals’ message boards?
All of this, of course, is only my (constitutionally protected) opinion.
