Seriously – bravo for sharing your valuable insights.
Four Million Eh?
Your work is impeccable, dedicated and most informative. Your scope is of global interest. I capture every morsal. I am not in your league. Your speciality area is much valued in numerous arenas, legal or lay. Thank you so much.
Don’t ever underestimate the value of the work you do.
In for a Penny; In for Pound.
Dissemination of information and informed commentary is so undervalued. I am paying attention as are millions of others.
You are an expert on the issues you address, not limited to legal issues related to defamation, privacy issues; and a variety of human rights issues.
Thank you very much. A silent admirer.
Don’t give up please. People notice but not always comment. Love your work and your dedication and the effort you make to analyze matters of serious public interest. It is not always about public acknowlegement; but the satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best and kept people informed. How they process that information is often unquantifiable. What is more, even though they don’t say so and give due credit, some at last may, on the basis of your inputs achieve positive outcomes for others.
Your analysis of recent and past judgments is much appreciated and most informative, especially as so many matters that you address directly impact on members of the ordinary community or reporters of such issues.
Thanks. How careless we all become.
