While I am not an Attorney, I am a small businessman who is advised extensively by Attorneys. The most consistent advice I get from my counsel is SHUT UP. What you DON'T say or write usually cannot hurt you. Try to remember that the person you are flaming is just that: a PERSON, JUST LIKE YOU, not some anonymous bit of text out in cyberspace. The same hopes, fears, dreams, and ego apply. If it's not true, don't write it. Even if it is, save it for Court. Courtesy and mutual respect for one-another's privacy are the only things that will allow the Net to be fully appreciated by all, without fear. Like the Fool sez, play nice, kids! Fool on, Glenn
