Back a month or so ago that Toad guy told us to keep an eye open for the fall of DDO to litigation. Anyone know where this is at? Are they quaking in their boots yet?

He was blowing smoke out of his @ss. The guy was totally ignorant, could not even understand what he was saying, and the FCC would laugh at him if he complained to them.

What was the supposed FCC violation?
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

You would think. After reading the thread for a bit, you might be convinced of his sincerity. I think he believed it.

Just to clarify for the sake of historical accuracy, I wasn't mean to him. Considering that he was threatening to sue me, the site, all the other mods, and generally insulting me, I believe I was rather polite to him and I humored his grievance to the extent that I believe was appropriate.

He threatened me (and the site, etc) with a lawsuit due to my removal of one of his threads, that I had determined was spam, and in the wrong sub forum either way. He believed he could claim copyright ownership of that thread and therefore I violated his property rights, or something along those lines. His argument was clearly incorrect, and even if he went to the trouble of filing a law suite against me and DDO, it wouldn't get any further than that.

Indeed. The entire thing was absurd, and if he hadn't gone to such lengths to make his points and arguments, I would have just assumed he had to be trolling. But after reading through his position, I think it was pretty clear that he actually believed what he was saying.

But I just wanted to clarify the above that he wasn't threatening to sue me because "I was mean to him". To the contrary, even in the light of the fact that his position is even well beyond the way you have described it above, I didn't say that to him, nor was I rude to him in any way. I just deleted his thread (something easily justified) and he threatened to sue me.

I don't believe so. I think he was a rather eccentric individual with no understanding of how the law would treat this position - which would likely be to laugh at it until medical attention was necessary.

His argument was clearly incorrect, and even if he went to the trouble of filing a law suite against me and DDO, it wouldn't get any further than that.

As a matter of law, his argument was laughably stupid.

Indeed. The entire thing was absurd, and if he hadn't gone to such lengths to make his points and arguments, I would have just assumed he had to be trolling. But after reading through his position, I think it was pretty clear that he actually believed what he was saying.

But I just wanted to clarify the above that he wasn't threatening to sue me because "I was mean to him". To the contrary, even in the light of the fact that his position is even well beyond the way you have described it above, I didn't say that to him, nor was I rude to him in any way. I just deleted his thread (something easily justified) and he threatened to sue me.

Of course. Your reputation of being a gracious and benevolent dictator remains unmarred by the unsavory and vain legal ambitions of a member who is clearly very confused and troubled.

What was the supposed FCC violation?

Airmax being mean to him. It was going to be Frogguy vs. DDO, Airmax etc.

Just to clarify for the sake of historical accuracy, I wasn't mean to him. Considering that he was threatening to sue me, the site, all the other mods, and generally insulting me, I believe I was rather polite to him and I humored his grievance to the extent that I believe was appropriate.

He threatened me (and the site, etc) with a lawsuit due to my removal of one of his threads, that I had determined was spam, and in the wrong sub forum either way. He believed he could claim copyright ownership of that thread and therefore I violated his property rights, or something along those lines. His argument was clearly incorrect, and even if he went to the trouble of filing a law suite against me and DDO, it wouldn't get any further than that.

I have seen people arrested for and try to build lawsuits for some pretty "out there" reasons. However, this is one of the more interesting threats of a lawsuit I have yet to see.
