Lost Rambling

Lost has a lot of potential, but doesn’t apply himself.

Watch what you write, the internet takes a turn for the worse.

This is a real story, I couldn't make something this silly up (maybe I should consult a attorney before calling it silly).

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A children's services referral provider was awarded $11.3 million in damages from a mother who posted critical Internet messages after seeking her advice.

The defendant, Carey Bock, called Sue Scheff a "con artist," "crook" and "fraud" in messages posted on a site used by parents with troubled children at boarding schools.

The award for Scheff, founder of Parents Universal Resource Experts Inc., is among the largest for a lawsuit claiming Internet defamation, according to legal analysts and an attorney involved in the case.

Moral of the story. Buy yourself a shredder, write those naste things down on a piece of paper and then shred said piece of paper. That is a lot cheaper way of venting than having to pay 11.3 million.
