raphael119: When I first came on here,like twenty yrs. Ago more or less, a girl in an i m told me "she had been attacked on the forums". Since she was in Japan I assumed she meant in a shopping center forum so I told her to call the police immediately. I did wonder if she was talking about a body part. Her English was only fair.
Yeah...well...laugh

Mind you...I've seen people on here...actually one particular person....who threatened to sue some individuals here because of personal "attacks"!!! laugh

Its hard to sue someone when you have a made up profile or a virtually anonymous one. Not to mention youre in a different country, or your target is broke or mentally incompetent.rolling on the floor laughing

Whistler sued an art critic once, he spent a fortune on legal fees and got 1 pound from the jury. rolling on the floor laughing


Big corporations and super rich use this system to bully and intimidate I.e, Trump. The money spent can be a super bargain to them.

The op doesnt own the thread but the monitors do to some extent. Personal attacks can be dealt with.

I hopefully have never actually slandered someone, made damaging personal accusations that are false and can be connected to a real life person. We never give out our real life names and locations or those of anyone else. wow uh oh

daniela777: A Forum was the main centre of a Roman city.
It served as a public area in which commercial, religious, economic, political, legal, and social activities occurred and discussion, debates took place, a safety valve for the society where free speech was allowed.


Are these principles still recognised in modern society?

Discuss to your heart´s content.
Yup, and those forums are laying in ruins just like where this one is going blues

Yes...so it seems.
In which case everybody is allowed to post comments and give their personal opinions.

For those who do not wish to have certain people on "their" threads then they should write blogs where they can delete comments they don't like? dunno

Avoiding any personal attacks has helped me, ive only been in jail once or twice in 10 or 15 years. I also believe flooding the monitors with complaints annoys them, and can backfire.
