If you go to your user cp, select "options" and find the menu box that shows thread display options and then choose to display 40 posts per page...this thread is 21 pages long..



To add a little to what Docc posted a few posts back...
There are numerous instances where someone has been taken to court because of what they wrote on an internet blog or forum. These were usually a person who made false statements to cause emotional distress, or tarnish anothers reputation..Some actually lose these cases, and have settlements brought against them. Some judges are looking at libel law differently, and in the future there may be some changes in how we are able to exercise our freedom of speech.

Some interesting reading...

Or this one, http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/16/us/16myspace.html

Here is one that was persued ,and won, even though the plaintiff knew upfront that the defendant had no ability to pay.

Done for the principle of the thing...I guess


One more interesting story, just because I came across it..
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53152




I don't think that Streetbeast suing for slander or libel is going to be the case here, as all of the statements made here by the regular members are true, easily verified, and the comments made about the history of Streetbeast sales and fulfillment tactics are documented as well.


treetbeast insider may have something to worry about though, as it seems like many of his statements about how the company operates fall within the time period that the other posters affiliated with SB say they have mended their ways.


Later, mikey
