Pending Legal Action

I will accept an apology from steve46 as sufficient to resolve this.

If another week goes by without resolution then I am pursuing a legal solution to steve46 claiming I am a "crazy person". Libel is a felony.

You are aware you can't continue to enable someone to use TL as a platform for ongoing criminal activity, after it's been brought to your attn.

Re: Pending Legal Action

You do not have suit. Neither can steve46 identify who he called names nor can you identify who you were called names by. Steve46 is a fictional character as is Onesmith.

Name calling is a common practice among members of a trading site. It makes no difference to a court if name calling occurs in spite of a sites guidelines.

Why do you think that anyone takes Steve46's comments about you seriously? Your actions, in my opinion, flatter the Steve46 character. It is as if you provide him admiration, probably more admiration than he deserves. Keep in mind that I am developing this opinion based on your comments to him and not his comments to you.

Has Steve46's name calling prevented you from improving your position at this site? Are there women who will not date you because Steve46 called you names? Do banks refuse to lend you money because steve46 called you names? Is it harder for you to find a job now that Steve46 has called you names? Is it just that your feelings are hurt and that is it? You need to prove loss in order to recover damages in a suit. What have you lost?

Onesmith, we've all been put down and rode over on this site and potentially done it to others, knowingly or not. Let it go, forget about it and become an accepted part of this community by doing so. The friendship and comradery found here far outweighs the bad and if you show yourself to be mature in this matter it'll only pay you back. All the best

Re: Pending Legal Action

Hi guys, any legal notes should probably be in private messages. (However, I am not sure that legal action here is the best step!!)

Or, if we keep this sort of thing in the public forums, you could arrange to have this added to the smilies:

To assist in letting go, I recommend The 5 Levels of Attatchment: Toltec Wisdom for a Modern World by Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. It was just as good as The Four Agreements by his father.
