I strongly advise putting on a helmet before reading because you will 
want to bang your heads against the wall extremely hard. I know I do.

 From the press release:

--------------------

Gawker Media has paid Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai a $750,000 settlement payment 
and later this month will permanently remove its libelous article about 
him, which denied Dr. Ayyadurai's invention of email.

Victory over Gawker Media

"This is a historic victory for truth," declared Dr. Ayyadurai. 
"Americans have no tolerance for fake news, lies or cyberbullying. A 
14-year-old kid working in Newark, New Jersey in 1978 invented email. 
This settlement honors that innovation."

There is no reasonable dispute that Dr. Ayyadurai is the inventor of email.
