Holy shiz. If you'd have asked me before I would have said Australia would be one place that just wouldn't happen, I have this image of Aussie being the sort of country that wouldn't allow a foreign government to interfere in their freedom of speech.

 

"Worried about a possible defamation suit".

 

I don't know anything about law but I'd have thought that if he could back up what he claims in the book with facts he couldn't be touched.

 

If there is a real chance of being sued then I don't blame the publishers for not wanting to touch it but if that's just a BS excuse because they're getting pressure from elsewhere they're pretty much proving the author's point.

This insidious shithole is reaching out its tentacles all over the world. Make no mistake, they want the world for themselves. And no, I don't have a tinfoil hat.

Give an inch and they'll take a mile... Sprenger and Cambridge shouldn't have backed down.

 

Academic integrity ought to be worth something.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
