    :eek: Online Rants Not Always Free Speech

    By Kelley Beaucar Vlahos

    FOXNEWS.com WASHINGTON — Those with quick access to the Internet and the urge to rant online ought to think twice. What you post could come back to haunt you, in court.

    As the number of Internet users and electronic bulletin boards soars, so has the tendency for people who use the perceived anonymity of the medium to lash out or "flame," as it is called in cyber-speak, against public and private figures, companies and institutions.

    But with the increased venting comes more and more lawsuits from corporate lawyers who have discovered posters' identities and sued them, arguing that their flaming has crossed the line from free speech to defamation.

    "People don’t think about it," said Lee Tien, a lawyer for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an advocate for free speech and privacy on the Internet. "They think what they say is more like a conversation and that the words are effervescent and disappear into the air, and often they are not. As a result, the things people say are likely to come back to bite them."

    You are not anonymous! Think twice before dissing me! Your mommy, daddy, or foster parents won't be happy when they get served court papers.

    Hey Gocyru, I haven't say anything bad about you, :confused:


    But just in case... If I do, you would have to look for me in Venezuela where no one give a damn about the electronic frontier crap! =P

    Right:

    1) I will not 'dis' you if you didn't take the piss out of what I live for. (I also live for F1)

    2) I will take offence about anything you say about the mac community.

    3) Try and sue me and I may well have a suprise for you.

    4) Can I just ask why you post here at all?

    5) I will say what I like, DO NOT THREATEN ME or I will sue you.

    Why would you bother sueing us? Whats the point?

    You seem like a bit on an idiot to me, this is due to you messing with my fun.

    Please do not annoy me further, otherwise I will sue you.

    You have been warned.

    Man, grow up! We don't care about your opinion, your degree, your computer, cat, girlfriend, wife anything! You don't like what I have said about your "opinions" in the past, well my "opinion" is that you can frig off! You come trolling on a regular basis, with no factual evidence to ever backup what you say. You run your mouth like a 12 year old girl, just asking for responses like this one, the ones before, and the ones that are sure to follow.

    Let me make this clear

    Go play in a PC forumn and leave us the hell alone!

    gocy.......me boyo:

    You have NO idea who you may be irritating do you?

    For all you know I coud be typing this in from a rooftop on a Tibook looking at the back of your head through a rifle scope.

    Stop being such a jerk before you offend someone less mild mannered than myself. We can track you as easily as you can track us. If not easier.

    People like him who (3rd person) sue people for stupid reasons are the reason why insurance is so high.

    I just wish he would leave us alone, but obviously he has probably got a boring life which means he can't do anything else.

    Just a question to GoCyrus, how would you go about sueing me? I am in school therefore my country would not deport me to the US and I do not think it would be worth you paying to come to the UK just to sue me, and then there is the small fact that I do not have any money and with in 6 months will be old enough to be independant from my parents, so who are you going to sue? Broke me?

    PLEASE PLEASE LEAVE US ALONE

    Re: Go ahead......sue me, I'm poor.

    Just a sec, as far as I know nobody likes him (Jefhatfield might, i can't remember) so is he going to sue us all?

    Try it, 100 of us, that will cost him an absolute fortune.

    Go back to WINDAZ world (I have enclosed a help manual for you)

    Hey Ensign and Harley Dude,

    I notice you are using copyrighted images. Ensign Paris' pic is from Star Trek, and the Harley dude's pic is from Harley Davidison Motorcycles' web site. I'll report. They have money and lawyers.

    Guys, have any of you thought that gocyrus is doing this because he WANTS to rile you? Wouldn't it be amazing if no one cared? No one replied?

    Like that'll ever happen...

    Gocyrus, I have nothing against you. Anyone that does is merely basing their opinion on what you post, not who you are. If this is the reputation you want to build, that's your choice, but it's no way to make friends...

    ...and those of you who heckle gocyrus aren't doing much good either...

    Do you have foster parents? I bet your parents left you because they saw how ugly you are. Remember this, you gotta come up with the money to sue in order to sue!

    Ordinarily, I wouldn't bite, but...

    ...since you've resorted to the stupid "I'll sue you" whine, I'll make an exception:

    "So, Cyrus, have you gotten over your chicken-molesting habit yet?"

    Your move. I'll be waiting for your army of flying monkey lawyers to descend upon me and call forth the black magicks of litigation.

    seeking the legal system to defend yourself over text is like running up to a cop because somebody swore at you

    and the fact that you watch fox news....well thats bad enough :D :D :D
