You may have seen the thread that I started in the Bman 2005 / Theme Camps section titled "Warning: A theif and a MAJOR self Advertiser.
". I realized that this site doesn't deserve to be filled with what is inside of that topic any longer than what it has already. It served its duty, got the attention of the subject and I think it would be best that it now disappears for good. Orion(the subject) recently sent me an e-mail that gave me a sense of his understanding/apology, so I am now glad to feel a breeze of reassurance. So please, whoever you are that has the power...go ahead and erase that thread when you have the time. Thanks, Smile and Slay on.
So, you posted on the Internet (the World Wide Web
) a mugshot of someone you don't like and (essentially
) wrote "theif" beneath the photo. But now you're worried about, possibly, a retaliatory lawsuit against you for slander (libel). Meanwhile, your initial request to the Admin
here to delete your mistake is couched in your self-recitude about how your thread
'served its duty', given that your mark sent you an email that provided you with a sense of 'his understanding/apology'; And now that you feel all better
, you want this mess that you
have created to be made to disappear.
Well, the most you've really succeeded at, so far, is to highly embarrass
. Anyone who reads your created thread
will probably feel embarrassed for you
. 'Bet you won't do that again!
Maybe this guy, your mark, is no real gem himself. Regardless, we here are self-reliant and we don't need your
help 'saving us' from people that you
find 'undesirable': If the guy's as obnoxious as you claim him to be, we'll figure it out on our own, soo
gh. From this distance, we can't substantiate whatsoeve
r if this person is a "theif", or for that matter a "thief". You have no business libelling persons across the Internet with captioned photos, regardless
of your opinions of them. All the same, we don't need thread-locks or thread-erasures to save us from your irresponsible claims of a big bad world of obnoxious people and unproven allegations.
Eplaya users reading your libel will probably benefit from your mistake, reminded to know better than to publish another person's headshot on e-playa and label it with- 'Litterbug', 'Low-Talker' or 'Axe-Murderer'. Live with it: If you've truly damaged this person's life somehow with your libel, then let it go to court where adults
can adjudicate the matter and where both sides
get a fair opportunity to speak. You've made your bed, now lie in it.
Hopefully, your thread
will be left to stand, unlocked
, and we can all learn a lesson from your
humiliation, lest we humilate ourselves by repeating such a mistake. We'll let BBS nature take its course and hopefully the thread will sink into obscurity. Thanks for your contribution: We can all learn from your mistake.
