Bird Scooter tried to censor my Boing Boing post with a legal threat that's so stupid, it's a whole new kind of wrong

So…we’re just not going to talk about the fact that Bird’s legal counsel’s name is Linda Kwak?


That’s not gonna fly


Making fun of people’s names is juvenile. Cory really ducked that one.


What a bunch of loons these folks are.


Please stop. You’re just egging them on.

Ah, organized crime. Waaak-waaaak-waaakk!!


This story is about riding a Bird, not walking (and talking and looking) like one.

Seriously, what a stupid and ill-founded threat she made on behalf of the company. It might be worth going to court just see see her laughed out of it.


If some old coot starts grousing about a perfectly legal post, they deserve it.


You think she’s squawking up the wrong tree?


I shared your original article to our city Facebook group as there have been all kinds of Bird scooters impounded. It got deleted. :roll_eyes:


If some old coot starts grousing

Two piece combo! Tasty.


Man, you swanned right in here with some quality puns.

And a brief which she bought of a booby… :notes:

Fitting that the EFF’s response is the legal equivalent of flipping the bird.


Vulture capitalism?


Breast and wing?


I’d do a rimshot if I could only find my drumsticks.


I do love that this thread hasn’t become derailed by puns.
