I was making the point that it's easy to write something on the Internet and post it because there is no filter or review process to ensure that something is "believable," but there is a higher bar to jump when you publish in a newspaper because they review those things before they get printed.
Nobody threatened you...but why would you want to libel someone and why do you gossip about people so much, including private citizens?
Anyone and I do mean anyone can write a "GUEST Column for a newspaper. There is also a disclaimer by any legitimate newspaper that the opinions expressed either in guest columns or "Letters to the Editor" are solely the writers and are not necessarily those of the newspaper. That doesn't make Weimorts column legitimate but as I've said previously, it speaks volumes to his agenda.
Gossip? WTH? Gossip would be to say things about someone to another person that you wouldn't say to their face. I've been very honest with Weimorts in my sentiments. I don't like him. Since he reads here and is marking every post I make with his disdain for me, I think it's safe to assume the feelings mutual. Happy Dance!
I have not libeled anyone and if I have I'm sure whoever it is I am "alleged" to have libeled will have no problems proving that in court. Yes, he is a private citizen which is why I have bitten my tongue about what I really think of him.
