    didn;t read it very closely did you ?


    Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights

    The exercise of these freedoms, since it carries with it duties and responsibilities, may be subject to such formalities, conditions, restrictions or penalties as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society, in the interests of national security, territorial integrity or public safety, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, for the protection of the reputation or rights of others, for preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence, or for maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary.

    NO as you said "we're" too civerlized to lock people in kennels and I wanted to make the point that doens't apply to me in that I'm not too civerlized to lock someone in a kennel if I though it'd do some good.
    Whereas you claim you're too civerlized to do it, so if you're too civerlized ......... :)

    Naturally, we can! There's no legal limit to the number
    of impossibilities allowed, I'd imagine.

    (One of my personal fantasies, involves "Whisky-dave"
    actually proofreading his posts...)

    Drunk driving is not OK according to UK law , there's no laws regarding posting other than poor Bill Posters who keeps getting prosecuted.

    It seems you are singularly uninformed about the laws in the UK.
    Do ask a lawyer about 'libel', for example.

    I have, ask them about free speech, it's not for sale apparently.

    As for drunk posting which wass your original point I'm not sure about that, but it also depends what's said and about who.

    'free *political* speech', yes, and try 'free speech' by
    shouting 'fire' in a crowded theatre, for the classic example.

    Libel is not excused by 'free speech'.

    Nothing wrong with shouting fire in a crowded theatre if there's a fire.

    They haven't hid your post, so they aren;t exactly powerful are they.

    Now what was yuor original point again, about not posting when drunk, are you drunk as you're not making much sense if you're posting sober.

    But you said....
    "So drunk driving and drunk posting is OK?"

    I said I know drunk driving is not OK, but I wasn;t aware drunk posting wasnot OK. As far as I know there is no law against drunk posting, but thre is one aginst drunk driving.
    You then brought up libel which has nothing to do with drink, in fact you're more likely to get away with libel if you are drunk.

    To seperate the individual points as you seem to think that there's a link between drunk driving and drunk posting....

    Yes it is, but warning people that there is a fire is NOT wrong.

    Being labeled a fire marshall here, I do have to shout at students[1] to get out when the fire alarm sounds, nothing illegal in that.


    [1] and others including a secettary who was "just going to teh toilet during the fire alarm as she didn't want to leave the building 'wanting to go to the loo'.

    You seme to imply that there was a 'cost' in warning people of fire.
    I klnow on the underground theres is a cost to using the 'pull cord' to stop the train think it's about £50 but only if you use without good reason.

    Most are typo's .

    In fact while typing this I'm watching a student flattening a piece of aluminium with a pair of tin snipps....


    Now I've handed him a small hammer and a piece of wood.

    a) If you can count to 80, please do that on the chacacters of
    your line above. Tell us where you reached 80. Then tell
    us why you post lines that are longer, when the recommended
    line length is somewhere around 72 and the maximum line
    length by convention is 80.

    b) So you claim because you are drunk, you can write whatever
    you like and however you like?

    What the hell is a "secettary"?

    And you're still not allowed to lay fire just because you want
    to yell at students. Even though many arsonists gravitate
    to firemens' jobs and similar occupations.

    This one, however, is the mistaken belief that an apostrophe
    means "Warning, here comes an 's'". Or are you really saying
    Most are "belongs to typo"
    ?

    Or rather, because you've developped a remarkable tolerance to
    alcohol, and you need to keep up the alcoholic intake to keep
    it. Don't let anyone from the medical field look at your liver!

    Most editors can line wrap nowerdays. So tell me why you keep adding extra blanks lines to every line.

    No, I said there is no law against drunk posting while there is one againstdrunk driving. The libel law isn;t concerned about the amount of alcohol present in yuor blood, while the charge iof drink driving does and that is differtn between differnt countries. So even you're tiny mind mustv relaise the definitionn of drunk is differtn between countries and individuals.

    Human brains are quite advanced in fact you can work out most text providedthe majoroty of it is OK, the fact that you couldn;t work it out is interesting.
    I heard the pass IQ for such things is about ~75.

    To lay fire what do you mean by that.

    You told me to try shouting fire in a theatre or words to that effect, not sure what planet you live on but on mine I've never seen any warning noticed about not shouting fire in a theatre. So I do not know what would happen if I did such a thing. On public transprit there are warning notices regarding what could happen if you misuse the supplied warning device(s), but nothing about shouting fire.

    What is the cost ?

    Still adding the blank line I see.
    I've no idea what "kingston lounge now", but thsoe with IQs in double figures usually realise that that keys that are close together sometimes getv hit together, in fact that was one of the reasons the QWERY keyboard was invented.

    No.
    Are you really that stupid, no real need to answer that as I know you are, you've just proved it.
    Can't remmeber the last time I had a whisky, haven;t had one in 2013 so far..
    That's the amusing thing about my name in that I rarely drink whisky now. Ican;t rmmebr buying a bottle in the last 10 years. It's a nickname I was given in the 90s, because after 3 or 4 pints in teh pub I'd had enough and didn;t want another drink so I was always asked are you sure, and my reply was well I'll just have a short, whisky, not bells or teachers, no ice or lemon....
    So the last round of the night was pints and Dave a whisky ?
    So I got the name whisky dave. In the 80s I preferred either pernod or barcardi.

    No I haven't 3 pints is enough for me this weekend I only drank 1 pint my total alchol consumption for last week was 2 pints.
    1 spitefire and the other london pride didn;t drink any other alcohol last week.

    Good luck to the medical field on finding your brain, although it could be worth quite a bit being rarely used.
