    Simple thing would fix this... implement a Loser Pays system by default. If a party loses a case, it should pay for reasonable fees on the other side. Do that, and SLAPP goes away, period. no ned to worry about which state has which law, do it at the federal level and profit!

    I am really torn on this, because as artistically as you crafted those insults, you are stooping soo low here, hitler-cosby kind of low. Aren't you kind of making Murray's case, that he is being villified? And you made the point clear, that it is protected speech, but just because it is legal to say something, doesn't mean it is the right thing to do, that is important! On the other hand I get how important it is, to show the big guys, that intimidation doesn't always work

    as a member of the Furry fandom and here a representative, we would like to state clear that Bob is in fact NOT A FURRY, we as the furries would rather die than accept someone like this in our fandom...

    If HBO chooses to develop "Eat Shit Bob" into a TV series, it'd be bigger than the GOT.

    This could really use proper CC, especially for the song lyrics...just something I thought of when I came back to watch it for the millionth time. :) An aside: It's official. John Oliver is the funniest comedian in the English-speaking world.

    For anyone that doesn't know, "HBO's legal council" is Brian d'arcy James. He is a Broadway legend and an absolute boss. He's also in the last section in a sparkly uniform middle right.
