Jill, I totally agree with you.

The topic of cease and desist letters is an interesting one. It seems that blogs give voice to what people are thinking (but not saying in traditional media) as well as those facts that are known, but not widely published. If a blogger then says what everyone is thinking or reveals a fact that isn't widely known (and which gets someone's knickers all twisted up), then there is a possibility of the cease and desist letter. It's the "I don't like what you said, so I'm going to do this as a way of complaining."

They are perhaps a move against "transparency."

Given some past events, it would have been interesting to have been part of that discussion (or just a fly on the wall)!
