    This is what the word "allegedly" is for. Just slap it on there and you've got an out for almost any heinous thing you say about someone.


    I hope.

    ...this could change the wild west landscape of twitter and others. she has had this happen to her before but she settled out of court. she will probably try to settle again. i would like to think i learned my lesson the first time but this chick is in her own zone.

    God speed, GaryPuppet. God speed.

    For the record, though, if you believe half of what people post on twitter?....."fuckwit" comes to mind. People are too sensitive these days. Someone pulled one of these on you? What happened?

    Wigward v GaryPuppet will be a landmark case.

    But Beth Stern IS a cunt. Any judge would agree with that.

    ...i dont have any experience on social media platforms other then dawgs or other sites of interest. i think even caring for a nano second what someone else says is a waste of time. to me social media is infantile when you factor in that nobody gives a shit what youre doing in real time. wtf is that important that im going to "follow" them. im real busy.

    It's so easy to shield yourself from this... Unsurprising a dumb cunt like Courtney love failed at it, however. Wish they would take all of the nirvana money from her.

    My thoughts exactly. I love when GP goes after people an all...but I have zero interest in Twitter otherwise. Don't have an account and I don't care. You make a great point in saying that no one really cares what we do in real life so what makes it any more interesting when we tweet about it? To each his own, I guess. I'll pass. I think you summed it up nicely.
