Did they get the permission of the posters to print that?

If not could be a serious breach of privatecy

Ahh now we're getting into it because if a poster posts something derogatory towards someone a forum will say that the post os the opinion of the individual only and not the forum.....so which is it?:)

(I'm playing devils advacate here is all)

I'm not complaining but we can't have it both ways, either the site owns the posts or it doesn't.

If you are going to give blanket permission then take any heat as well. It is just a point of law I would like to see cleared up as obviously the media do troll this site and we couls see more comments making th media and I for one would not like to see imflammatory comments attributed to thi or any site involving warriors fans. Lets face it some of these comments can and do get quite heated. All it needs is a stupid comment taken out of context quoted and then we have a problem like we had a few years ago. Something I personally would not like to see happen again.

It closed the first site.

Just a question. I'm not stirring the pot. It needs to be clarified thats all.

Yes perhaps but as WBBC mentioned before our clarification is simple. And I won't go any further in that. You can take it up with our owner if you wish. But as far as I'm concerned we have no problems with the publication that's all.

well there are certain laws. defamtion and libel are covered fairly heavily in nz law.

as for the posts on this forum I think it is deemed public domain and media can therefore do whatever they like with them.

Nor have I. Read my post.

I said at the very start its a public place and anybody and everybody can read whatever they want and use it because it's public domain. Unless we were rendered private that's a different issue. But as said we have no problem with it.

To be frank, Sinbad, the staff haven't talked about this. And truth be told, it isn't our decision. We will have to wait for Mosh to return before we can make a fully informed decision on this matter.

I talked to Mosh about that this afternoon (just after I read the first post here. And he's seen this thread as well), and he had no problems with it.

Ok now I'm confused.

So, a person owns their opinion. But as soon as they put it in public of a forum it's no longer that person's opinion but now becomes the responsibility of the forum? That, is a little confusing and I think that's where you've confused me Sinbad. But as I mentioned as far as I know Mosh was ok with it.

It is the responsibility of the forum what they allow to be printed on the web site. It is the responsibility of the newspaper what they print in their paper.
And when the twain shall meet, each to his own I say and the devil take the hindmost - mixing my metaphors I know but I'm in a funny mood.

Lol, that reminds me of that episode of Yes Prime Minister when the Colonel(?) starts mixing metaphors, like: "If you change horses mid-stream, you'll be up the creek without a paddle!" :lol:
