This is going to be interesting. I hope folks note the difference between Topix and RoaneViews, as in this quote from the Topix CEO Chris Tolles:

“That’s what being American is all about — being able to make vague accusations against public officials. It is totally fair game to cast vague aspersions toward our public officials, and if you’re an elected official, you should be able to handle some heat.”

Turns out you can be sued if you libel someone.
