Lawsuit against Malibu lagoon restoration fails
October 28, 2011 § 67 Comments
Creekfreak readers may recall we’ve written about the proposed restoration of Malibu Lagoon – so just a quick update, Superior Court Judge Ernest Goldsmith sided with the state, allowing the restoration to move forward. I hope that we can save the state additional attorney’s fees by letting the dust settle and moving on with the project.
Announcement 11 November 2011 – from Joe & Jessica – We’ve closed the comments on this post – for two weeks worth of cooling off. We love L.A. Creek Freak as a place where folks can discuss L.A. Creek Freak stuff… so we encourage comments – as long as they’re civil and more-or-less on topic. The comment thread on some stories degenerates into not so civil, and not so on topic. When the disrespectful language gets going too strongly, we unpaid volunteer bloggers jump in and try to get folks to be respectful… then the topic threads become a critique of what a bad job we’re doing moderating the discussion. Sometimes then when we don’t approve comments right away (because we’re doing our jobs or just don’t have the interest in parsing through the unpleasant stream of comments), frustrated commenters follow up with accusatory emails to us. This isn’t really what we signed up for, nor do we feel that it’s what L.A.’s creek freak communities need right now. We’d rather be doing stuff that we have ganas for (and/or what we get paid to do) and not refereeing judgmental commentary… so we’re taking a roughly two-week break on comments on this story. During that time we hope to go back to actually writing creek freak stories! Thanks for your patience.
