1) Replying to a six-year-old post is generally not a good practice, as it often yields no results.
2) You\'re lucky, despite the above. There\'s a back-up of those pieces here, on this website. http://invisible-movement.net/articles/old-blog
The woman's story was not pushed to the media by John himself. The paparazzi/gossip site TMZ got hold of the news through their sources and just...went with it. The whole idea of somebody working for the court selling writings on legal disputes to anybody is scarier than the incident itself. It's primarily they who don't care if somebody's life is ruined.
Why are we discussing this woman anyway? Why vent your personal frustrations and then claiming you're not allowed free speech on here? The woman was not covered on this website *because* we did not want to contribute to ruining a person's life, and almost three years later, there is suddenly a random discussion about her.
At the same time, calling John super-polite, decent et cetera does not make sense either - nobody is universally kind to everybody. He's probably horrible to some folks, as we all are. Neither extreme is good.
"Also, if anybody is willing to give a try to translating at least some of the Japanese feature - that would be awesome. The community depends on volunteers."
It helps to read each news item from beginning to the end. Either way, two people applied to give this a go and since the Duran Duran fan sites also seem to be interested, I too hope these two people can get something done, depending on their free time. :)
