: McSpotlight was set up in several countries as a defence against McDonald's: to shut down McSpotlight completely would require a co-ordinated legal attack on 5 or 6 different internet service providers in 5 or 6 different countries with 5 or 6 different legal systems; and even then, we would have backups and could set up in another friendly country like NZ or Finland within hours; like the hydra; cut off a head and it grows two more. The aim was that the McLibel court documents would enter the public domain and would never be bottled up or silenced again. In 1998, we also made some McSpotlight CD-ROMs; the public can also get a copy of the site to browse through locally (we just ask a small donation to cover costs of production).
And this concept will change the world like almost no one will believe.
My hat's off to you, McSpot, and all the others that won't be silenced.
McSpotlight: Thankyou. Thankyou very much *g*. As long as we have people who are keen to debate and argue over the issues, it's worthwhile doing so.
