    Not a complete archive. They've been given cease-and-desist orders a bunch of times, and they've been taken to court as well (notably by the Church of Scientology.)

    Given the insanely huge size of their objective and how much they did achieve despite not fully reaching it, this is an insult.

    Just because it's an insult, doesn't imply that he didn't mean to insult them. I'm with him actually, they should've never caved in to those lawsuits. They would've won, it is a freedom of speech and freedom of information issue.

    Wow, I just found my college web page from 1999 and 2001 on there. In 1999 we blogged by updating pages manually. They were called web journals in the 90s. I'm so glad I found that. It's interesting and kind of shocking. I know I wrote it, but I feel like I'm reading someone else's writing.
