Lessons from the last few weeks

Actually, Johnathan, taking care of your private property (Web site) as you see fit is VERY libertarian. You may be more libertarian than you realize.

The fact that you allow others to use your property does not mean that you have to be ruled by those users. They should be grateful for the service.

It's when you feel you somehow have to conform to what the collective (your users) feel you should do with your private property that you give in to socialism and mob rule. Sure, there may have to be some give-and-take in order to maximize your success, but those decisions should always be yours to make. Very libertarian, indeed.

Freedom is all about choice; you have the choice to run your business as you see fit, and I have the choice to go somewhere else if I don't like your new updates. Either way, the freedom to choose what's best is left to each person.

The free market is a wonderful thing.

Jonathan, I agree with everything Andrew said. "Your property, your rules." We (the customers) can either go along with them or go elsewhere. That's a totally libertarian approach!

This is your private site, I've got no complaints with anything you deem necessary. Your property (virtual as it may be), your rules.

As long as you don't support the Department of Homeland Security swooping in with their gov't solution (either shutting the site down completely or taxing all the users to set up an agency of experts to study responsible and considerate internet usage) you can still be an honorary libertarian :)
