If anyone has been monitoring the thread on Divernet about the Puffin Dive Centres trip to the Red Sea, they`ll see it`s all ended in tears.

With some justification, and hovering lawyers, Mike Busitilli (Webmaster) ended the thread claiming that the forums` administrators are liable for the content of contributions to the forum. To cover my own ass, just to let you know that I have no connection with anyone at Puffin, and, living in Bristol, it`s cheaper for me to spend a week in the Med. or Red Sea that to travel that far north in my own country. If anyone at Puffin finds anything that someone else says in reply to my message offensive, then it`s nothing to do with me, and if they want to come down to Bristol, they`ll be a long way from home and my mate Daz is a real hard bastard, especially when I hold him out in front of me.

Anyway, does that mean that on this forum, when we start ripping the piss out of one another, if someone gets offended can they for instance start suing the forum adminstrators ?
It would be a great shame if us southern shandy drinkers had to stop kicking the $hit out of you northern tosspots.

If lies are told, then yes. Libel/Slander = written/said untruths IIRC. There had been a long running case involving Demon as ISP and publishing on websites a few years ago. Can't be arsed to lok it up though.

Now as to taking the piss, I'm not sure, but if anyone feels they have been maligned, they could give it a go. Costly to try though.

They should of course....

DEMAND AN APOLOGY

I regret to inform you that I am deeply offended by the content of you post.

I demand an apology on the basis that you are generalising all "Northeners" as soft and less than manly.

For the record, I would like it clearly stated: "That is exactly how I like my women."

One more outburst like this and I will not be responsible for Porgs actions.

Regards

ROTFLMAO...

Steve.  Oops sorry Brendan,  rest assured I do not find your posts or any of your verbal comments offensive.

Shame I can't say the same about your face  


But as a well hard southern bastard, suppose I have to show solidarity.

Hey Yippeee,

Sorry if you read Steve L's skit as an attack on Northerners: it was not - merely banter and a bit of fun; something we cherish here at YD. Please note my response to his post - all smiles. No sweat mate, you just need to understand the historical banter which Steve, myself and others have been conducting on here for the last couple of years.

Take it easy.
