There oughtta be an App for that

Or-
Good news on the copyright infringement trolls.
You remember them? Righthaven- the group that formed to strong-arm payments from bloggers who sent eyeballs to their client sites.
Yeah, well they got slapped with an order to pay $119,488 in attorney's fees and costs in its failed lawsuit against former federal prosecutor Thomas DiBiase.

And they're fixing to get hit with a bigger award from the disgusting site the DU (which will remain linkless)

Now..about that app- someone needs to compile a list of all Righthavens clients so that no blogger accidentally sends them a link.
You know, add a widget to Blogger, so it automatically sends a warning if the link goes to say the Las Vegas Review-Journal....

  1. This makes me happy and I'd sure like one if anyone is brighter than I am on 'puters, which should mean at least 99%!:)

    It's not a phone app, but it works.

I've had to enable moderation because some bots just can't stop sh1tting where other people want to live......kind of like Liberals.

It's either this or WV...
