Listening to the newest 40k Radio and Kyle is a hypocrite. He keeps saying they are a business but complain about how BOLS does their business. In a nut shell he s pissed because they wouldn't pull BoK article because it pulls in traffic, which for a site is how they make money.

KR is going to be getting my business I believe.

Blood of Kittens and Battlefoam have come to terms to settle out of court their current legal disputs.

The following is a joint statement from both parties.

The Parties have jointly concluded that open public debate best serves their own interests and, more importantly, those of the community. Accordingly, the Parties have worked together to amicably resolve their legal dispute. Because unknown facts came to the attention of the Parties and because the Parties are unbiased professionals, the Parties assign no fault to one another. The Parties request that the miniature war gaming community respect their concerted decision to move on and join the Parties in unifying miniature war gamers everywhere. In recognition of the Parties’ attorneys, who assisted the Parties in resolving their disputes, the Parties are making a joint donation to the Online Media Legal Network.

I ask everyone to respect both parties’ decision to end this whole affair. I also want to thank everyone for all their support through out this process, with special mention to the OMLN Network and my lawyers for making my defense possible.

So, it's settled, and a Joint donation to the group that gave legal support to Blood of Kittens. I wonder if Romero had to be beaten round the head with how stupid it was to pursue a libel case in this situation.

Actually, that read more like both sides knew they would have gotten screwed over to me.... Only reason to settle out of court is if one side would loose out majorly, and IF BoK could have won, they'd have been unlikely to accept this.... Afterall, a donation to a legal company pretty much means both sides would have gotten screwed. So BoK certainly isn't blaimless here as they're trying to make out.

Actually, even if BoK was likely to win, this would have been the best outcome for them anyway, so they probably just decided to call it instead of dragging out a suit that would have been stressful and disruptive (required traveling and going to court), his Pro Bono lawyer probably would have preferred an early settlement and finally Battlefoam was suing both him AND his wife for anything they could get - however right you may be, you don't want that crap hanging over you.

And for all that, in the end they would have won... the right to keep the article up, and maybe some money for their Pro Bono lawyer. As it is, they gained the right to keep the article up, and some money for their legal defense group. Boom, done, no reason to continue except for the satisfaction of saying you won, and that's just not worth it in the real world.
