f the forums, like are friend here says, it's a "hub" of news, sharing information etc - for each other too - what would be the point of a forum in the first place? BG to vent his spleen with nonsense? Notice of race etc you have buy an ad? I don't think so; people will go to a new venue. If that's the plan then you go girlfriend - let us know how you make out k? 

Maxx, Clean claims to have legal training.


Look at the exact words:


"If you are looking to sell entries for a regatta, series, or event with major sponsors and a marketing budget, buy an ad.

If you are looking to promote a volunteer-run, grassroots marketed regatta,, series, or event, just don't be a spammer and you can do what you want."


You are only required to buy an ad if you fall into the first sentence. The rest fails for ambiguity. 

If a participant posts up a NOR, you are good. If the organizing authority starts a thread with an NOR, it depends.

Submitted sans my usual comments. ..

 the Canadian Bar Association, defines intimate partner violence (IPV) as, threatened, attempted, or completed physical or sexual violence or emotional abuse by a current or former intimate partner.*"




(I've screwed up the edit function apparently)


So Apparently you can kill your husband just for mouthing off!!




Actually it is much more broad than that in British Columbia, this is the statutory definition of family violence:


"family violence" includes

(a) physical abuse of a family member, including forced confinement or deprivation of the necessities of life, but not including the use of reasonable force to protect oneself or others from harm,

( B) sexual abuse of a family member,

© attempts to physically or sexually abuse a family member,

(d) psychological or emotional abuse of a family member, including

(i)  intimidation, harassment, coercion or threats, including threats respecting other persons, pets or property,

(ii)  unreasonable restrictions on, or prevention of, a family member's financial or personal autonomy,

(iii)  stalking or following of the family member, and

(iv)  intentional damage to property, and

(e) in the case of a child, direct or indirect exposure to family violence;


This is a big part of the reason I left this field of law.

Please note that threatening the goldfish is family violence.


edit, my apologies for not being able to edit out the stupid grin face and the copyright symbol.

Bring back Gaston and AkaGP..
I've never liked the idea of censorship. I don't care how much they upset people. If you don't like your ideas being "challenged" then leave. 

There is a big difference between someone challenging your ideas and someone purposely disrupting the forums. Hijacking a thread with the intent of disrupting the conversation is an attempt of censorship, too.


Thank you. This is all too true for many online forums and comment sections.
