Positive Liberty

In case anyone is interested, one of my group blogs, Positive Liberty, has, of late been going through technical problems. The site's founder, my friend Dr. Jason Kuznicki has given up, lest he pull all of his hair out and become bald like me, and joined this very estimable other group blog.

Check that link for more information. If you go to the site Positive Liberty, some squatter now resides there.

The good news is the rest of us libertarians (or is it "we" libertarians; I think this is a place where both "us" and "we" work within the prescriptive grammatical rules) who blog there plan to stick together.

We just aren't yet sure whether we will continue to use the name "Positive Liberty" because our URL has been hijacked.

I'll keep you posted.


Update: We are back for now. We will probably go through significant future changes. Again, I'll keep you posted.

Hijacked? ... how ironic.

Too bad you guys don't know a good lawyer ;-)

Same thing happened to my old pal Patterico some years back. Here's the poop, if it's helpful.

I get the feeling Jason would just as soon let it go though.

I also had sold out from under me, but I decided not to pursue it either.

Jon - Should we assume that until you and your fellow PositiveLiberty bloggers get a new groupsite URL, you'll continue to post the material here that you were at Positive Liberty?

For those who miss James Hanley at Positive Liberty, he continues to blog at his personal site:

Tom and Ben:

Thanks. We certainly do have a potential legal case. But, as noted, it may not be worth the hassle.

Jason doesn't seem interested in the hassle. Though Jim Babka may want to fight it.

I'll continue to post the America and the Founding stuff here.

I will post THAT and other stuff at jonrowe.blogspot which serves as my personal archive.
