Complaint Department. Yesterday we announced that Dr Danny Friedmann (IP Dragon) had agreed to field complaints from readers who feel that their blogposts have been unfairly blocked by this weblog's moderation policy (see details in the side bar feature "Want to complain?" on the weblog's home page). Today we can announce that we have a second person to whom readers may make complaints -- Dennis Crouch (Associate Professor, University of Missouri Law School, and author of the Patently-O weblog). The identity or, where relevant, anonymity, of complainants will be respected.
