SAMIZDATA: Kinsella Sues Levant But Levant Is Not Bothered. “What is Adscam, I wonder? Something that makes Kinsella look bad, presumably. I ask this to show how right Levant is about how this bizarre and way-over-the-top lawsuit causes faraway people like me with no direct interest in any of this to get drawn into the story. Levant is asking for donations. Defending against lawsuits like this, thanks to the internet, can now be paid for by sympathisers.” From what I know, Kinsella is something of a bully, but I think he’ll regret tangling with Levant. Everyone else has. Here’s Levant’s entry on the subject, with this prediction: “It’s going to fail spectacularly, and hurt the Liberal Party.” If you’re curious about AdScam, here’s the Wikipedia entry.
