    Gentle, but expensive, reminder regarding libel on websites

    I know Audi-Sport.net is very friendly and good natured, but it's worth taking a look at this very important piece of case law:

    Linky

    It's always worth bearing this in mind before saying anything too excitable on cyberspace.

    Re: Gentle, but expensive, reminder regarding libel on websites

    Can't really give too much away... but the total cnut on the apprentice is infact even worse than he appears, I have proof he has used at least 2 false names and is a general "a bit dodgy"

    I'm a big fan of The Apprentice. The five fellas left are:

    Ansell
    Paul
    Samuel
    Syed
    Tuan

    Syed looks to be the most irritating.

    Re: Gentle, but expensive, reminder regarding libel on websites

    Tuan is a true petrolhead by the way and a nice chap, his garage at the end of last year included a Lamobo Murci, F360 and a TVR Sagaris - and they wouldn't let him turn up to the house in his Lambo - to[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img]ers!

    I also think he is about the only one on the show that is already very sucessful.

    Sarcasm is the only was I can make it through life without needing to by a machine gun and "off" some people - the only problem is it's completely lost on most of the americans I have to speak to on a daily basis (I get those funny silences on conference calls whenever I make a joke [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img])

    They seem to think so:

    "It's SH!TE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the f*cking Earth! The most wretched miserable servile pathetic trash that was ever shat on civilization. Some people hate the English. I don't. They're just w*nkers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by w*nkers. Can't even find a decent culture to get colonized by. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a sh!te state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and all the fresh air in the world won't make any f*cking difference! "

    My accent does change depending on circumstances...I can pass for a local if I want to...
    Normally though, I suppose I'm just a non-placable non-native.

    I've been in the right place, at the right time when certain Oil companies have been handing out redundancy packages...

    EnCana (Amerada Hess) kindly paid a sizable chunk of my new C4S!

    You can tell I'm not that old, nor wise, or I'd have spent the money in a more sensible (or should that say responsible) way...

    If you have the means & desire...do it!
    There is no feeling like it...a car like that just pushes bittons other cars can't...ans makes you feel special every time you look at it, never mind drive it.
