Hot or Not?
edited November 2009 in General Discussion
He keeps blaming me for someone finding his glaringly obvious vulnerabilities when I had no idea he even started new stuff (until coming to the forums anyway). So, this time I actually will start something against you, Phantom I will let you guys decide. FOR ME TO POOP ON!!

wait, this is tribesnext
It would be Ill-Logical not to.
FOR ME TO POOP ON
And that's discrimination against lesbians! ... Not that I'm for or against, just matter of fact...
And who voted no 3 times!? I think he cheated with 2 extra accounts!
That does remind me of the libel law. I'll just keep that handy in case keen thinks he has anything over me with my pictures, or does indeed try to quote "Start Something".
And judging by the poll name, I'd say I'd have a pretty damn good case against keen were I to choose to do so.
My IP is: 127.0.0.1 - Address is 31 Spooner Street, Quahog, RI
Come and get me girly!
Or I could contact your ISP and have them call your local authorities to take you to court where I may do so.
You publish defamitory articles, you take a risk, you publish them against me, I push the envelope.
By the way, thank you for providing me with all the evidence and witnesses I need.
In order for defamation to have standing in court, the statements must be a) false, b) knowingly presented as facts with intent to defame, and c) there must be a concrete, not hypothetical, injury to the complainant; i.e. Phantom loses something because keen et al think his picture is girly. Since I see failing at b and c, your case wouldn't have standing, and would probably be thrown out before you finished filing it.
Not to mention you're talking legal fees if you're honestly considering calling for a defamation suit. And seriously, you're going to sue someone over comments made on an internet forum for a game that's nearly ten years old?
Better to set an example than to have assholes ruining my name in the game development community.
and, you're wrong
b) he clearly posted the poll title in an attempt to defame
c) my name in the community.
trust me, I learned this shit in both journalism and government class.
And I'd like to see a court that would take a case to defend someone's name in a video game... get real.
Oh snap, she's going to get me.. in court! I'm pretty sure making a porno in court is illegal. Are you ready for that, little girl?
DX Agrees with me.
Not to mention I live next to lawyers, one of them was my journalism teacher who clearly explained that falsly declaring an individual as the opposite sex to defamate is a libel crime.
FOR ME TO POOP ON!
I point you again to the poll prompt.
I do believe you, like a lot of people on the internet, are failing to grasp the crucial difference between a fact and an opinion.
a) somehow I get the feeling they won't work pro bono for your destined-to-fail-spectactularly case, and
b) by leaving out the crucial with intent to defame, not to mention the requirement of a non-abstract injury by the Supreme Court of the United States (please see Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife (1992)), you've helped suggest that the teacher has no idea what they're talking about.
Did you seriously just take legal advice from a high school teacher and DX?
Go read some USC and come back.
the teacher explained that, it's not the teacher who doesn't have any idea what they're talking about.
Unlike other people, I can actually admit when I'm wrong here, and it would clearly appear to be an ergo here as a poll.
You win this round keen, just be damn lucky that you had those two words 'Who Thinks' in there.
Because a group of people were definitely prepared to back me up here.
