    Better watch out!

    -------
    Mike Marlowe fully admits that he sometimes gave George Gillespie a hard time in that AOL chatroom.

    But never in his wildest imagination did he expect to be sued in court for what he characterized as "razzing."

    "We gave him crap," said Marlowe, a 33-year-old welder in Fayette, Ala. "I'm not going to deny it. I teased him and he teased me back. He gave it back better than he ever got it."

    A generation ago, such petty personal beefs might have been settled with fists outside the corner bar, but now it's the Internet age — and Ohio resident George Gillespie instead filed a $25,000 lawsuit against two erstwhile cyber chums he met in the sprawling 900-room, mostly anonymous society that makes up AOL's chat universe.

    Is it possible that this guy was already suffering from "severe emotional distress and physical injury that is of a nature no reasonable man could be expected to endure it" before he joined the Romance - Older Men chatroom?

    How the hell did someone inflict "physical injury" on this bloke by teasing him in a chatroom? Or is there some strange peripheral that I am as yet unaware of? Actually, scratch that last question, I don't think I want to know.

    How does a chat room lead to physical injury, exactly?

    Does this mean I have to be nicer to Karl and Bill Archer?

    Ruh roh. I couldn't be more worried if they started suing people for masturbating first thing in the morning.

    (Too much information?)

    Back in the 1500s men never wondered about things like that.

    You'd think Thomas Flannigan, being a lawyer and all, would have thought of this by now.

    I remember that -- that was hilarious.

    That cycling guy reminds me of Mr. Garrison.

    You know, I wasn't really laughing at hundreds of Muslims being trampled to death. I was laughing WITH them. There's a difference.

    Y'know there's a lot of sense in the idea of not letting newbies post for a while or at least keeping them out of NSR.:rolleyes:
