I PIT isitlegalto

Domo arigato, Mister Legalto. Has a nice ring to it.

Why not split the difference with pre-tarded? Perhaps he may eventually graduate from pre-tarded to retentious, but I’m not holding my breath.

It’s like [del]reading[/del] watching a [del]train[/del]carwreck, you don’t want to look but can’t help yourself. Unable to refrain from looking, I found the reading list the mod in question admonishes the OP to read to understand law amusing. It starts not so bad, but ends with:

[li]As We Go Marching: A Biting Indictment of the Coming of Domestic Fascism in America[/li][li]Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No, to Take Control of Your Life[/li][li]The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America: A Chronological Paper Trail[/li][li]A Pretext for War: 9/11, Iraq, and the Abuse of America’s Intelligence Agencies[/li][li]Atlas Shrugged[/li][/ul]

Novels by Ayn Rand are where I get all of my legal knowledge from too!

Yeah, I’m hiding behind the clever alias my parents thought up.

I don’t know anything about the law and I haven’t looked at the forum, but I have every reason to believe you’re correct and that really confuses me - who on earth is trying to run a legal forum without knowing what they’re talking about? And if they do know what they are talking about, why on earth are they inviting those who don’t (and/or not scrutinizing them) to moderate?

Seems doomed.

Hello lawbuff, and welcome to the Straight Dope!
Where we all hope for the best.

Whoa whoa whoa… lawyers who are arrogant, belligerent, and contentious? When did this happen?!

Yea, you are better off banned. I think they did you a favor. Bunch of ingrates.

That guy is pretty stupid though.

I haven’t looked at it, and will likely never look at it, but I cannot help but think that a name like “is it legal to” is likely to attract people on both sides of the admin/poster divide who ask things like, “Is it legal to blow up live frogs with firecrackers?”

I fear that allowing this thread can be seen as an act of war. Many people (me, f’rinstance) might think that a board war would be fun (I missed the one with Stormfront :frowning: ), especially when they get Brickered, but I understand we are to be more adult than that. ETA: Which sucks.

Sooo…“legalto” is a fancy-schmancy word for “lupus?”

lawbuff, don’t drag your fight with other message boards onto this one.

I’m closing this thread.
