Brainduck’s Weblog
Psychology geek tries to explain a few things.

I’m Dave Walker

To follow up my previous post on Cartoon Church & SSGT, I’m re-publishing all Dave Walker’s original posts on SPCK on my blog as a PDF (Thanks to Matt Wardman for putting these together). I do not believe that SSGT should be allowed to use legal bullying to prevent some very mild-mannered comments from a Thoroughly Nice Bloke being blogged.

Other people who have done the same thing have had bizarre legal threats – I’m fortunate enough to be too broke to sue, and used to much scarier lawyers from the likes of Dore.

Without further ado, here are the missing ‘Cartoon Church’ posts.

Please re-publish them as widely as possible.

    some of the worst features of Christian missionaries in the past, and sought
    to emulate all their mistakes and display none of their virtues.

  1. Hi Brainduck. Looks like your file’s gone AWOL, it’s giving a 404.

    Link here if you like: Review of The Dave Walker Reposts

    Cheers & all that. Dave still seems to be keeping his head below the parapet, entirely understandably from my POV having been on the end of a Brewer C&D myself, but I for one and many others appreciate all the support.


  2. Despite being a confirmed atheist, I fully support your stance on this. Freedom of speech, on or off-line, is vital and should be defended at every opportunity.

  3. Thanks for the post and the link.

  6. When I first met Dave Walker, I said, “Are you Dave Walker?” and a guy nearby said, “No, I’m Dave Walker and so’s my wife!”

    May he be an example to us all.

  7. I love the theme you are using, I have a WordPress blog as well, and I would love to use this theme. Anyway you can tell me what its called?
