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.
Mind you...I've seen people on here...actually one particular person....who threatened to sue some individuals here because of personal "attacks"!!!
Yes...you're right..how on earth can somebody on the internet...under a false profile..sue someone on the other side of the world for a comment they made giving their personal opinion.???
Those are just stupid threats!
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.
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
