A few years ago, the High Court in England and Wales determined that internet forum postings were most likely slander and not libel. However, we would need to have recourse to the laws of the jurisdiction in which this site is hosted in order to determine whether or not this is also the case. It's an interesting distinction to be made when one is considering defamation in the context of a forum -- is this fleeting speech? Or are we publishing for the ages?

Then of course we could all just have a bacon sarnie and hug.luv.gif

"Wizard's First Rule: people are stupid. People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."

I don't know, Zeddicus. Nowadays, the trend is to dismiss any information as false, under the presumption that doing so is skepticism. Stupidity holds no allegiance to gullibility. One can be just as stupid in their ignorance.

Zeddicus was a wizard of the First Order.

Wizards Second Rule:

The greatest harm can result from the best intentions.

Kindness and good intentions can be an insidious path to destruction. Sometimes doing what seems right is wrong, and can cause harm. The only counter to it is knowledge, wisdom, forethought, and understanding the First Rule. Even then, that is not always enough.
