Submission + - Heartland Institute threatens to sue anyone who comments on leaked documents (techdirt.com)

Layzej writes: Bloggers around the world have been commenting on recently leaked Heartland Institute documents that reveal their internal strategies to discredit climate science. These posters are now under threat of legal action. According to the Heartland Institute "the individuals who have commented so far on these documents did not wait for Heartland to confirm or deny the authenticity of the documents. We believe their actions constitute civil and possibly criminal offenses for which we plan to pursue charges and collect payment for damages"

Are hundreds of slashdotters now at risk after having commented when the story was posted here?
