Help BleepingComputer Defend Freedom of Speech

Hi

My name is Nick I am a BC Advisor on Bleepingcomputer.com and we need your help.

Enigma Software has filed a lawsuit against BleepingComputer and other volunteers on the site because of a review of SpyHunter posted by Quietman7 in the forums.

BC is being sued by EnigmaSoft (the company behind SpyHunter, the product spammed by 95% of the malware removal guides on the internet) for publishing a post that expresses a somewhat negative (and motivated) opinion about SpyHunter. While it would be easy to remove this post, this would set a bad precedent and BleepingComputer is going to fight this decision.

I want to encourage all to read this article and help spread the word; this is not something that only affects BC, it has the potential to affect any online community dedicated to help others, How? A moderator giving a bad review of a water treatment/additive could see the administrator of this site in court just like we are now.
