: McSpotlight: Actually, you can get sued for what you write on the 'net; there have been a number of successful prosecutions for libel in the last couple of years. What you post here you post at your own risk.

McSpotlight, that is just a sign of the times. We live in a sue-happy society. Somebody says something someone else don't like. So let's sue'em. Somebody trips in a mall's parking lot. So let's sue'em. A burglar is attacked by guard dogs while robbing somebody. So let's sue'em. When will it all end?

McSpotlight: Well, personally, I think it'll all end when the national infrastructure has degenerated to the point that it will no longer support a countrywide judicial system. So, say about 40-50 years.
