Looks like Connie and Mark are tired of getting hauled into court. The owners of Free Dominion have sold their forum to a company based in Panama City, Panama, to avoid more legal trouble:
Conn Esq Web Design was originally intended to be a corporation offering internet design and programming services, holding Free Dominion as an example of its production. But in the past year the corporation has begun to see ownership of Free Dominion as too much of a potential liability because the website has become a target for individuals and government organizations determined to attack freedom of speech, using a variety of methods at their disposal.
Considering the political climate in Canada today, Conn Esq Web Design Ltd. has made the corporate decision to sell Free Dominion to Liberty News Service Inc. of Panama City, Panama. Liberty News Service’s corporate mission is to buy websites from individuals and corporations living in countries where free speech is under attack, and protect those websites from being shut down or seized by oppressive governments. LNS is now the legal owner of the Free Dominion database and software, all logs and information about FD members, and the domains freedominion.com, freedominion.org and freedominion.net. Because it is not permissible to transfer a dot ca domain to a foreign corporation, we will retain freedominion.ca, which will continue to point to freedominion.com.
Liberty News Service Inc. has, I must say, kept a very low Net profile, the only certain reference to it being this very Free-D Posting. Any further information on the company would be appreciated.
In any case, Connie and Mark go from being site administrators to Lead Moderators, and they have been advising Free-D Members as to methods of hiding their identity:
2) Do not reveal details about yourself in the forum that could help people identify you. If you think you have already revealed too much, consider abandoning your existing FD userid and registering a new one.
Let's use our new strategic position to its fullest advantage.
Let's return our country to the values of liberty that are the source of its greatness.
Yeah. Let's use pseudonyms to bash foreigners, gays, and dark skinned immigrants.
