    So he's suing a board for being flamed? That's even more immature than the flaming itself.

    that so many Lawyers these days are guilty of?

    Here it comes - the assault on free speech, and the open exchange of ideas. Insidious, creeping tyranny cannot stand the light of day.

    It figures, it would come in the form of a lawsuit. How else?

    This has got to be even stupider than the woman who spilled hot coffee on herself and sued. What the hell do you expect on a Yahoo board? The majority of them are immature flamers.

    Give me a break. People have said much worse things on there, and I don't see why Yahoo should have to pay them anything.

    And just who are you to say what "trouble" is, or who "we" are?

    You can expect to be hearing from my attorney.

    Actually, the woman who had 190 degree coffee spilled on her sued because Mickey Ds would not pay her hospital bills. She actually had to have a skin graft in order to heal the burns. Also, she sued because other people had also burned themselves as a result of the overly hot coffee. So McDonald's was on notice that their coffee was too hot. Had Mcd's paid her hospital bills, least they could do, since it was their employee who negligently handed her the coffee which caused it to spill, she would never had sued.



    As to the Yahoo thing, that is absurd. I don't know the whole story, but if the flaming had to do with a public incident, in that he put himself into the limelight, then some flaming is allowed. He will have a very hard time with this suit and has really made himself look like an ass and since this story is now very public, anything said now will most likely be safe.

    Further, Yahoo should not have to give him any personal info on posters, what, invasion of privacy, what???? This guy gives lawyers a bad name.

    Making lawyers look bad is hard to do these days. What a crybaby. This shows what's wrong with the legal system. Like those fat chicks who sued McDonald's over being too fat, the case was dismissed, but they still had to spend tons of time and money getting rid of the suit. A lawyer needs nothing to make huge amounts of trouble --- just his whiny-ass self and his whiny-ass clients, and their financial greed.

    I support a system that would have judges decide if the lawsuit could even go forward.
