    Someone has been at fault! You! icon_razz.gif


    But yeah, I know what you mean.
    I have admitted I was wrong. I would do it more, but it just doesn't happen often icon_lol.gif

    Because when Al Gore created it, he made sure a "no fault" policy was built into it.

    The internet and all it makes possible is relatively new.Law always tends to lag behind technological developments.
    There has been a case very recently in the UK of a guy who has been convicted and imprisoned(five years,I believe) for sending upsetting photographs to bereaved parents of their deceased children and made similar comments on Facebook 'memorials'.
    I think some kind of legal remedy to internet bullying/harrassment,etc. is coming,but how exactly I don`t know.It shows the growing importance people now attach to the online world.

    A California appeals court ruled this week that threatening posts made by readers of a website are not protected free speech, allowing a case charging the posters with hate crimes and defamation to proceed

    Well interestingly enough, it's a curious situation, largely hinging on the copyright of posts to websites. Who owns the copyright? For example, if you read the fine print of your terms of service on Facebook, they own the copyright to anything you post on their site.

    If you post hate speech, they technically own it. Are they then responsible for it? Or, do they hold you responsible for posting inappropriate content, even though it's no longer your content? Check your terms of service!

    Same with sexting on our cell phones...any photo you send over a cell phone network becomes the copyrighted property of the cell phone service provider...and is likely stored somewhere on a data server. So you should always think twice before sending those spread eagle shots over Grindr boys!

    So the point may well be to keep who's at fault murky, in order to avoid interruptions in commerce.

    To answer your question. And wrestle my goddamned thread back from some BS about copyright law and free speech issues, WHAT I MEANT WAS...
    why do people rarely ever admit they did wrong, whether in a relationship or any other activity in Life? I admit the question was vague and open-ended.
    Perusing these threads people rarely ever admit they've lied, been douchebags, made mistakes, done something terribly wrong, etc.
    That's what I meant.

    Because we live in a society that has been taught it doesn't have to take responsibility for itself. Why take responsibility when you can pass the blame around?

    For instance, all the frivolous lawsuits.

    It's McDonalds' fault I spilled coffee on myself.

    or my favorite -

    The person who, while breaking in and robbing a home, tripped and broke his leg and sued the homeowners for his medical bills and won. The homeowners had to pay. - I guess it's reasonable because he did lose his method of earning income while recovering?????

    God Bless America!!!!!!

    How much integrity does it take to own the consequences of what you say and do?
