Mark Jeftovic CEO of easyDNS
appears to have taken a position that is diametrically opposite to that of the Good Samaritan. His company seems to have taken a position of Willful Blindness
(sometimes called ignorance of law, willful ignorance or contrived ignorance or Nelsonian knowledge). This is a legal term used which describes a scenario in which a person tries to avoid civil, criminal, or in this case moral liability, for a wrongful act, by intentionally putting him or herself in a position, where he or she can claim to be unaware of facts that would render him or her culpable.
We take issue with the following excerpt from Mark Jeftovic of easyDNS.com’s June 19, 2015 post:
CALLOUS: Mark Jeftovic CEO of easyDNS Reviews provides platform for defamation while turning a blind eye to the plight of victims.
“If litigants want to pursue specific [easyDNS] customers they will always be better served to leave the ISPs and the vendors out of it, that way they can truly sit where they belong – as impartial observers on the sidelines awaiting a legal decision one way or the other.”

Whereas, notwithstanding the legal immunity provisions for Internet service providers, easyDNS IS NOT
an “…impartial observers on the sidelines”.
When Mark Jeftovic and easyDNS.com continues to knowingly provide, after notification, a publication platform for defamation and harassment, it they are most certainly morally culpable. The United Nations International Bill of Human Rights, Article 12
“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”
It is this investigator’s opinion that Mark Jeftovic’s easyDNS.com, as Internet service provider and host for allegedly defamatory material, did knowingly and actively subject Mr. Andy Lehrer to ongoing personal injury in the form of defamation, and that their inaction with respect to investigating, and terminating the services causing Mr. Lahrer’s injuries, constitutes active conspiracy with, and furtherance of the antagonist’s word-crimes.
But, there are also kudos for Mark Jeftovic of easyDNS.com:
Issue is taken above because, in my opinion, the ongoing publication of the alleged defamation against Andy Lehrer does not serve the public interest. It would be remiss of me not to also point out a balancing praiseworthy decision made by Mark Jeftovic of easyDNS.com. Namely, his decision to help enable the ongoing availability of WikiLeaks after one of his competitors pulled the plug on the site. No doubt, this decision is supported by many, including myself, who see the benefits of intense scrutiny of secrets that work against humanity’s best interests, and it will also be condemned by those who have deeply held superstitions about the trustworthiness of the authorities to make decisions on our behalf.
