Activa vs. Mrs. Lanteigne · That would be Mrs. Louisette Lan­teigne of Water­loo, On­t., who has an ex­treme­ly am­a­teur GeoCi­ties web­site that she’s been us­ing to post il­lus­trat­ed com­plaints about what look like dan­ger­ous, shod­dy, and en­vi­ron­men­tal­ly dam­ag­ing con­struc­tion prac­tices in her neigh­bor­hood, il­lus­trat­ed with her own pic­tures. Ac­ti­va, one of the de­vel­op­ers she’s been com­plain­ing about, has slapped her with a 2-million-dollar li­bel ac­tion. Plus, Slash­dot knocked her site off the air (Google cache here). The lit­i­ga­tion seems a lit­tle over the top to this non-lawyer; are there any good Waterloo-area geeks who’d like to fix her up with a higher-grade Web pres­ence?
