I think Mr. Kerr may have caught teh stoopid. Posts are a board's raison díêtre. If the board isn't found when google searches are run for the topics it concerns, that board won't have any posters and therefore no content and therefore no traffic. So board operators would have to choose between (a) having no content; or (b) living in mortal terror that they might be five minutes too late deleting an offensive post.

This is not a problem with a legal solution. There needs to be a PR campaign getting the word out that pretty much everything on the interwebs needs to be taken with a humungous grain of salt - even assuming that employers who google search and find anonymous slander take it seriously, a question which so far appears to me to have been begged by pretty much everyone weighing in.

well said. i'm sure xo posts were not the reason -- certainly not the only reason -- that brittan heller failed to get a single job as a 2L at yale law school.

Gossip

My name is gossip.

I have no respect for justice.

I maim without killing.

I break hearts and ruin lives.

I am cunning and malicious and

gather strength with age.

The more I am quoted,

the more I am believed.

My victims are helpless.

They cannot protect themselves against me

because I have no name and no face.

To track me down is impossible.

The harder you try,

the more elusive I become.

I am nobody's friend.

Once I tarnish a reputation,

it is never the same.

I topple governments and wreck marriages.

I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights,

heartaches and indigestion.

I make innocent people cry in their pillows.

Even my name hisses.

I am called gossip.

I make headlines and headaches.

Before you repeat a story,

ask yourself:

Is it true?

Is it harmless?

Is it necessary?

If it isn't,

don't repeat it.

My name is Gossip!

Wagging Tongues

A certain priest lay dying from a broken heart.

Wagging tongues had ruined his life and work.

A person, who had been one of the principal

offenders, came to ask his forgiveness.

"Father," she said, "I am sorry for my sins

of slander against you.

Is there anything I can do restore your good name?"

The dying priest pulled out a pillow from under

his feeble head and handed it to her, saying:

"Go up into the church tower, cut open this pillow

case and empty out all the feathers that are inside."

The lady did as she was told.

A strong wind blew the feathers in every direction.

Then she returned tot he priest.

"Now," he said to her, "go out and gather up

all those feathers and put them back into the pillow case."

"But that's impossible," objected the lady.

"The wind has blown them across the whole town."

"That is just how impossible it is for you to get

back my good name for me," said the priest.

The Spaniards say:

"Whoever gossips to you, will gossip of you."

Italians say:

"The tongue has no bones, but it can break your back."

The Chinese say:

"God gave a man two ears and only one mouth.

Why don't we listen twice as much as we talk?"

Word of Socrates

Socrates would have agreed with what St. James wrote:

"If a person never sins in what he says,

he is perfect." [Jm 3:2]

One day someone ran up to the ancient wise man

Socrates and whispered: "Socrates, listen to this

bit of juicy gossip about a friend of yours."

"Wait!" quickly answered the wise man. "Have you

first passed that gossip through the three

filters?" "What three filters?" "Yes, my friend,

three filters. Now let's see whether the gossip

you want to tell me passes through those filters."

"The first filter is truth. Are you sure that

what you are going to tell me is the truth?"

"Well," stuttered the man, "actually I heard the

story secondhand." "Hmmm," answered Socrates.

"Let's go on to the second filter and see if your

story will pass through it. Is what you are going

to tell me, kind?" "Not exactly," said the

informer. "In fact it's just the opposite."

"So that takes care of filter number two.

Now tell me: is it necessary?" "Hardly."

"Well, if what you want to tell me,

is neither true nor kind nor necessary,

skip it."
