Courts Cracking Whips on Bloggers?

Class, this is gonna be a quickie today, and I will return with the next segment of the interview in a following post. I wanted to inform you of something I read recently online in USA Today. The article was titled "Jury awards 11.3M over defamatory Internet posts". You can read the total article here.

I'll summarize for you (very briefly) what happened: a woman posted nasty things (name-calling) about another woman on the Internet. The p.o.'d lady sued this lady who doesn't have two nickels to rub together, and the judge awarded the upset lady this huge settlement! Now if you recall, I have posted in earlier posts: never blog mad, drunk, on any kind of weird substance and when you're out of control. Remember? This lawsuit is what can happen to you. Be kind to one another, and if you have a dispute, you probably have some Uncle Vinnie somewhere in your family tree like I do. Tell him your complaint! Better yet, talk to a counselor, hit a pillow or find someway to get even without blogging or blabbing about it on the net. Capische?

The Best: keep your karma clean and practice random acts of kindness. Share your knowledge as your teacher does. Build up your soul bank account for this is the only thing you're gonna take with you.

Class dismissed!
