I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.

    Hello Eli,
    Excellent Decision!!!
    There should be a limit where everyone should take a stand between Concius v/s temporary Gain.
    Almost, 99% chooses the latter one, but always people with Concius Decision have always triumphed since the start of Mankind i.e. Prophet ADAM (PBUH).
    I m more than INFINITE % with you Decision & Salute you.

    In this case, the majority of the Internet could be sued according to your thoughts printed here.
    Though I respect your choice in this matter, the social showing is the only measurements I/We have to see how my articles are being received and shared. From what I could see, my articles were making a modest showing, that I appreciated knowing about.

    Regards

    Integrity is a rare thing in an on-line world. I think this choice shows respect and measured judgement to accept a probable short term loss in site views. Long term a showing of integrity and caution will keep this site alive.
    Just a single million dollar lawsuit can mean a promising, well intended platform is destroyed by bureaucracy and naive laws.
    I was not aware the code involved with these ‘social buttons’ was hidden from site managers, maybe I should pay more attention.
