“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

Very very "Chilling Effects"

"The Chilling Effects Clearinghouse collects and analyzes legal complaints about online activity, helping Internet users to know their rights and understand the law".

"Chilling Effects aims to support lawful online activity against the chill of unwarranted legal threats."

We are still waiting for a response from "Chilling Effects" as to why four posts relating to Professor Nick Saunders were blocked from our blog on Friday 14th September  because they contained "allegedly infringing content that may violate the rights of others and the laws of their country."  Our blog continues to be guilty until proved innocent.
We are suffering from the "chill of unwarranted legal threats"!
