  • Why is post locked?

    I posted a revised supreme court ruling on this site yesterday and almost immediately I was insulted and attacked for my post........if this is a "law" site then there should have been no reason for my post to have been locked?

    What I posted was a very good workers' comp issue in Ohio and for some reason I was a target because a couple of people had nothing better to do....not to mention that one of the people who was not happy with my posting was a moderator.

    I posted fact, nothing that could have caused a dispute unless you are one-sided.

    I would prefer to be sent a PM if my posts offend someone not called out and having someone lock my post and delete the other!

    Public forum, freedom of speech.

    The reason that the post was locked IS the exchange that followed it (which I deleted).

    You could have sent me a PM asking me to address the postings you found offensive - instead you chose to reply in kind.

    That'll get your thread locked on this board.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      "Public forum, freedom of speech."

      Actually, this is a moderated forum. You can write anything you want, but the moderators have the right to edit if the thread is offensive, inappropriate or gets out of line. While I enjoy a lively discussion on the forum, the mods do a good job keeping it under control and appropriate. If you want true freedom of speech, start a blog. This isn't that place.

        "Freedom of speech" does not apply to forums. This is often a confusing issue for many but its fact. Moderators/Admins have TOS statements on sites home pages and violation of such will cause the aforementioned result

          Law school was expensive

          Common mistake by laypeople.

          FREEDOM OF SPEECH ONLY applies where there is a government/state actor infringing upon your right to speech. You have NO WHOLESALE RIGHT to free speech in general society, at your job, in school, etc.

          The First Amendment prohibits CONGRESS from abridging the freedoms of speech and press. These prohibitions are applicable to the States through the 14th Amendment.

            I will remember that next time, but my thread wasn't 30 seconds old before others started in....I guess all I can say is that you will be deleting, locking or blocking a lot of my post if this is how some of these people treat others....I will ALWAYS defend myself......but first i will make sure i report it to you

                Terms of Service

                Read the TOS for site that should tell you what you can and cannot say. However suffice it to say that namecalling (flaming) or use of obscene words are no nos!
