Here’s why you shouldn’t post to your blog when you are pissed off. Ilkka Talvi, concertmaster of the Seattle Symphony for nearly two decades until he was fired a year ago, posted on his blog site yesterday a retraction and apology for the attacks he made last month on Maria Larionoff, SSO’s acting concertmaster.
Larionoff immediately threatened Talvi with a libel suit unless he posted a “complete retraction and apology” on his blog site and pays her legal expenses.
They made a financial settlement and you can bet that it won’t be the last one a blogger ever pays.
