: Dionne, we allowed you to use this board and air your views because we believe in free speech, even if it disagrees with us and our point of view. In this, we differ from McDonald's; who have repeatedly tried to silence critics with the threat of libel suits. Consider that...

Hey McSpotlight...has McD's ever threatened to sue YOU for libel?
What other instances have McDonald's threatened libel suits against competition? (curious)


McSpotlight: No, they haven't. In fact, they haven't threatened to sue anyone since the Mclibel trial. Just in case, we've set up a mechanism that should be able to bypass any legal threat they care to throw, but due to the McLibel trial, McDonald's seem to have learned that you can't just bully small groups with impunity.
