Happy 10th Anniversary to Overlawyered.com:

Overlawyered, founded by my friend Walter Olson, turns ten today. I think it was the first legal blog, and I know it's still one of the best.

Is the whole *site* ten years old, or just the blog? I seem to recall hearing about this site well before 1999...

Overlawyered is consistently funny, analytically sharp, and always careful to avoid confusing the personal qualities of those unfortunate enough to be featured with their legal or political mistakes. From memory, it's the second legal blog I started reading daily, soon after I started checking this site whenever I had a free minute at the PC.

It's always been a blog, even though "blog" wasn't a common term in the days of Pets.com. The first post was indeed ten years ago today.

Olson's modest. Calling it the first legal blog doesn't do it as much justice as pointing out that apart from kottke.org, the clearly established champion, it's one of the oldest continually published blogs, period.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
