    I guess this being ignored as it is means the people here at USMB don't give a flying fuck if they get sued or not.

    Oh well, flame away... but be careful what you say to me from now on.

    new form of freedom of speech, or lack thereof. Guess we don't live in the land of the free after all.

    Watched some news when I got home from work today and they were going on about how the political climate today is worse than it's ever been before. The level of vitriol, insults and ratcheted up rhetoric and hyperbole has never been seen before. The country is boiling, and it's hitting Washington as well. If it continues, we will see a boil over. Sure that's a euphemism, but you can imagine yourself what that means.

    :lol: You'd be the first person that would be able to be sued for Libel. As Dis just mentioned, your signature is a prime example.

    Besides, this is an online message board. No real names, no real anything for the most part. All of those cases you used were real people on websites with real actions involved.

    Nothing in there that hasn't already been presented darlin', and none of it is lies.
