R U a lawyer needing some money. Comes to the internet freedom of speech. Topix will protect it members right to privacy. Matter of fact the State of Virginia tried to to make Myspace release information about one of their users. California told Virginia to bad there is a right to privacy. If you don't like topix then leave you don't have to get on here. Maybe ppl get on here and pass rumors is it any different than me standing in Walmart gossiping about someone and spreading rumors.

If what you are saying is so true then explain this.

Topix terms of service states that you cannot use their site to slander or harass people. Regardless of what you may think, they won't side with you if a subpoena is involved.

As far as Freedom of Speech, people think it applies to everything and it does not. This blog about Freedom of Speech is interesting. Everything that comes out of your mouth is not protected by the amendment. Whether or not you want to believe it, the misuse of your mouth can get you into trouble.

If you go outside into the street at 3AM and scream to the top of your lungs "WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP!!" You can be arrested for noise ordinances. If you yell "FIRE, FIRE FIRE!!!" in a crowded theater when there is no fire, you can be arrested for endangerment. If you work for a company and disclose their secret information to another company, you can be arrested for sharing trade secrets. If you spread a rumor that the local chinese restaurant is killing cats and serving them as chicken, you can be arrested for defamation.

If you want to scream out your opinion in a public square, most of the time, you need a permit for Public Speaking and could get arrested for not having one. There are many places that do not allow the public use of profanity, the owners will call the police on you for it.

Freedom of speech means that you can say what is allowed in a location, at an appropriate date and time, at an appropriate volume, if you have taken the proper steps to ensure you are legally able to speak there.

You are not even legally protected by saying "in my opinion".

Look it up, you may learn something.

As far is Myspace VS Virginia, I can't find anything on it. Laws change everyday and as far as I know, that could have happened 5 years ago.

All I know is people like the ones who come to this forum trashing others are contributing to the loss of everyone's privacy and rights online. Just like everything else, if people keep abusing it, one day there will be so many restrictions on it that there will no longer be any fun in it.

You left several names off here, i think everyone that has been named on this board should sue, i think MECC should sue, I think Food City shoud sue, and I think the town of Big Stone Gap should sue for the slander that has been said about the students and professors at MECC, the slander that has been said about the employees at Food City and for the slander that has been said about various Big Stone Gap town residents, town employees and town police department members, and I think various other county employees, particular certain judges that have been slandered on Topix should all sue since Topix has allowed this vicious, mean-spirited, and defamatory comments stand.

i am not ticked off. this was not addressed to you or any one person. i was just wondering why complain about the site and then get on here and read it and get pissed. you said you werent getting back on here, i did not say that. i dont think it is healthy for you, it just makes you feel grief and hate. you have to forgive yourself before anyone else will either. bury this crap and leave it dead. prayiing about it will do so much more than fighting with people. i am truly sorry you are having a hard time over all this. but, take it from me i have been thru a similar situation and it takes a lot of time for everyone to heal. the more you stir, the more it is going to stink and keep the mean circle going. think about this and try to let it go for you and your entire family. everyone has had enough pain. good night and go one day at a time.

The myspace incident happened aound a year ago, I seen it on CNN or Fox. Myspace got out of it because it had something to do with the right to privacy. I use to be a company spy I sold most of our info on technology- electronics to China. I made great money doing it to. I never got in trouble for it. Yes I have shouted in the streets 3 am in the morning outside of a bar and no I wasn't
arrested. I have told a waitress off a few times I wasn't arrested. If I don't like someone I will gossip about them at the park with everyone else. If you dont like topix then leave nobody said you have to get on here. Defamation of character is very hard to prove. Do you really think the courts are going to take the time out to listen to you whine about how somone hurt your feelings on topix.

Look around we got bigger problems all around us. If you think you can get it changed then go march right up to Washington protest. Protest in the streets of Big Stone gap now that is something I would like to see... Oh of course thats not going to happen ppl are to lazy to do anything. All through History yes ppl have been arrested, voicing their oppinion but it was the only way to get the laws changed. Majority of the time if you are causing a scene in public the police will just ask you to leave. If you give the cops any problems then yes you will be arrested. op

I read your link and one of them was a lawyer. I read the full story about a year ago. That couple was accused of a nasty crime. If you accuse somone for crimes on children, and that person hasn't been convicted for that then yes you can be in some hot water. Remember this just because your awarded 3 million from joe blow around the corner don't mean you are going to get it.
