Porn, Defamation and All That is Good

Nov 8, 05:31 PM · from the mouth of Jim

Ok GoofyGuys…

So, you knew it was coming; it’s time for me to firmly plant my soap-box and preach to the choir regarding the April thread.

Let me premise this by stating that I have no intent to point fingers, flame, be flamed or blue flame. We’re all reasonable and I think that this is going to be something we all agree on anyway, but I had to speak my mind publicly.

First, Bry, Ty, etc., that thread had me choking in tears of laughter and secreting juices of joy. However I have to agree with Ty, Andy and Jake about the public nature of this forum. As Ty recognized after posting his comment, we need to be cognoscente of the fact that anyone, including Bryan’s ass-worm, has access to read what we post.

As far as I see it, we have two things to be conscious of; the law, and others’ feelings/views/opinions. Neither of these is mutually exclusive. As each of you who spoke up in the thread mentioned, we’re all excessively good friends and I personally can’t conceive of the foul character defamation that would be required to actually offend one of us. But when it extends outside of ribbing each other’s tiny little penises and rectal co-habitation, we start walking a dangerous line.

Specifically, the following concise definition of Freedom of Speech is a good starting point. When it extends outside of our sphere and could possibly be considered as defamation, we could be in trouble. Of course, that’s the law’s opinion – and not the whole story. I personally feel that we need to practice some discretion, regardless of the law, just cuz we’re such damn nice and upstanding gentlemen. < cough - bullshit >

This link regarding Defamation Law, Libel Law and Slander Law also seems like a good jumping point for more information.

Additionally, I’d like to state my feeling that we should have some sort of disclaimer on the site. Specifically, I can’t express how much I appreciate the work that Jake has done on this site, and I’d feel horrible if he was held liable for something we said.

Unfortunately we live in a time when you can hack into my system, illegally I might mention, do something naughty and then someone else can hold me liable for the naughty thing that you did on/from my system. So far the cyber laws for liability are still young (and not present in some cases) but there has already been proof that liability does exist for an administrator. If, as an administrator, I make a reasonable effort to secure my system, post acceptable useage policies and inform unwelcome visitors that access is prohibited without permission, I probably won’t be held liable.

Since Jake is the administrator of this site, I feel that he needs to protect himself from the possibility that something we, or other’s say, might end up holding him liable. I think that some disclaimer such as “This is a public forum. The comments posted do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of the site administrator or authenticated users” would do it. Also, something that states on the main page something along the lines of “Content on this site is public and un-mediated and may contain language, pictures, views, and opinions that some may find offensive. By reading or participating in the content of this site, you understand the risks associated with doing so, blah blah blah…”

Anyway guys, I’m sure I’ve already preached to the choir too much, but I had to offer my two pounds of defecation. As much as I’m pro-obnoxious, I think some discretion is in order.

Who’s in my mouth anyway?

    That would be me.

    Bonus question: who’s mangina was I just in?

    What I meant to say, of course, was thanks Jimmy for knowing all this stuff, and thanks Jake for holding this together. Sorry if I got a little up on my high horse responding to Jackie. But I agree with Jim about all this stuff. I don’t think we should censor ourselves, but I do think we don’t want to offend the wrong people (as in our bosses).

    I second putting my cock in Jim’s mouth/ I mean the whole knowledge of stuff that Jim has said. If there is anyway of putting a disclaimer or anymeans of protecting our “goofy guys” ways, then I agree. If we can’t protect ourselves with the freedom of banging April, I mean expressing our sexual abuse of April online, then we’ll just have to only do it around John.

    So, when is Jesus bringing the pork chops?
