I would imagine it's much the same in the UK, Robbo. I'm advocating nothing here, I'm merely making the observation that people with slam-dunk cases don't normally need to go out publicly talking about the wrongs committed against them.Furby, i'm not so sure your advocacy of going straight to the lawyers to resolve anything is laughable when you consider just how insane your legal system has become. In every single case that i know of in the US of this type litigation results in the lawyers winning. They butt-rape everyone on the road to a bigger bank balance.
My point was that if Cort has such a strong case, then running around forums and FB talking about it is really a waste of time, since the lawyers would handle things for him, with their cut of the winnings taken out, of course. Personally, I despise lawyers and Internet Protector of the Truth campaigns directed against me or whomever else can be actionable once things get out of control, but to be honest the sorry *******s who normally engage in this sort of thing are settlement proof because they don't own anything of substance to take away from them. Hence the reason they're out on forums trolling with the stated aim of righting perceived wrongs and/or expressing moral outrage.
In my experience if there's a perceived wrong being committed, it's much more effective to go and do something to change it, rather than whining and crying about it on a forum or other form of social media. Sadly, at least with pubescent Americans it's far easier to whine and cry on forums and social media rather than to get off one's ass and actually do something. It's generational, if you ask me. Us old farts are used to doing things to change our circumstances, while it seems that so many of the younger people seem to think whining and crying is the way to go.
