First, barak, the ceo of six apart, emailed to say I could ignore the customer support person which was nice.
Here is the response from one reader below. I will say that I think 6A needs to come out much stronger in assuring bloggers that they will never interfere with our content or I’m outa here.
“To put this situation mildly, this request is ridiculous. The fact that they would even email you at all on a TOS violation is ridiculous. You should have every right to post whatever you want, even if it happens to be libelous – which I personally don’t think it is in this case. As much as I respect the Movable Type team and their supporters (particularly Andrew Fife in these comments), this is your blog and you should be able to say whatever you want on it. Aside from the fact that MT shouldn’t be in the content business in the first place, the namby-pamby recommendation for “fixing” the issue seems childish and ineffective to the point that it shouldn’t be suggested at all.”
