    Maybe consulting with lawyers if he has actually been harrassed?

    Maybe signing up for an account at one of the many News Servers
    that allow totally anonymous posting?

    Such efforts as we saw yesterday are usually very counter productive.

    Unless what was posted is false, it is not at all likely that a lawyer can
    do anything for Justin. It certainly is not harrassment as it is a public
    forum. It is not deffamation or slander if it is true. It looks as though
    Justin would have no case.

    To tell folks to harrass his boss by telephone? Depends on the state
    but in many that is exactly what qualifies as harrassment.

    The people that call his boss would be doing the harrassing, not the guy who
    told them that they could or should do it. Now, if he formed and led an
    "organization" to harrass him, then he would be guilty even if he didn't
    call himself, but suggesting such a thing in a newsgroup certainly doesn't
    qualify.

    Actually if Justin can prove the identity of the poster, and can
    demonstrate harm ( I think the technical term is "Tort"). Then he
    actually may have a case. This might be treated as a negligence tort as
    "whoever" posted this information did so expressly condoning the actions
    of others to commit "harrassment". I could make a case that this would
    similar to someone inciting a person to yell "fire" in a crowded
    theater.

    Telling somebody to go jump off of a bridge would not make you responsible
    if they do so. The same goes for the obvious harrassment. Making the
    information availble is not illegal ... using it in a harrassing manner is.
    Now, if you could show consipiracy, then the poster might be prosecuted
    without having actually done the harrassing. I am not sure there are too
    many cases where conspiracy to harrass would come into play, and certainly
    here it does not (who is he working explicity with to harrass Justin?).

    There is simply no way that this guy can be successfully prosecuted [with
    any half-way compentent defense] and only a foolish lawyer (of which there
    are plenty I am sure) would take it on prosecution.

    So, having said that ... JUSTIN, GO JUMP OFF OF A BRIDGE! If Justin quits
    posting, don't blame me

    Inciting people to jump off a bridge would entail this. It works like
    this, you post a persons information whom is not too popular right now
    (I'll use Richard Nixon, he's dead so who is it going to hurt, but it
    could be anyone who is alive) and you convince enough gullible, pissed
    off, and possibly chemically impaired hippies that jumping off a bridge
    in protest to the Viet Nam war was going to stop Mr. Nixon from
    continuing to bomb Cambodia, and if they actually jump...now you can be
    held liable in their deaths...because you said they should.

    Is this case iron clad, no. But it's not what you or I say, it's 12
    unemployed people who couldn't get out of jury duty.

    Yes but the poster (In another post Identified) did more than just
    post phone numbers. They also said: "I suggest everyone in the
    newsgroup call him up". I think most groups of 12 folks would call
    that incitement.

    It seems a double standard to object to Justins' posts, and then
    defend the "Anonymous" post as free speech.

    If you want to allow the "Anonymous" post under the free speech,
    anything goes on USENET theory, then all of Justins posts are fine and
    dandy.

    If you want these cellular newgroups a tad closer to what might be
    found in a moderated news group then you ought to be somewhat more
    Fair and Balanced in what you object to.

    Did I defend the post as free speech? No. I simply said posting true
    information was not illegal. I made no statement of whether it was right or
    wrong.

    Now that is a leap of logic that just doesn't fly. BTW .. I didn't "allow"
    (like I had a say about it) the post under "free speech". The discussion
    wasn't about whether the post is appropriate here, but whether it was a
    crime and the poster could be prosecuted. Did I miss something or are you
    trying to change the subject?

    >


    I can object to anything I want ... I have no need to be "fair and
    balanced". My assimulation to the "fair and balanced" mindset has nothing
    at all to do with what is proper behavior in a Usenet forum.

    So why do you, Phillipe, Justin and friends post here? Do you want to hear
    somebody say something you know they don't want to say? Do you want to make
    it so that it is a generally unhappy place to converse? Do you get off
    making people feel negative feeling (i.e. frustration and anger)? Why post
    if you don't have anything to contribute?

    I recently rebuilt my PC and saw the trolls from Justin trying to grab my
    attention (the subject line was simply to troll me into a conversation and
    had NOTHING to do with Sprint PCS ... it was a TROLL by every definition).
    You want proof that Justin is a troll, that is it. I didn't answer it, but
    instead reestablished my filters. Hell, I haven't even exchanged words with
    Justin in weeks and yet he is still addressing me as if we have a discussion
    to complete (which we don't).

    But you and I (and just about everyone lese here) know that wasn't the
    question. The point of that statement in context was that Justin may
    have a legal case against anyone who calls his superiors and complains
    against his activities, and the person who is inciting them to do so.

    No I do not. I also do not want this to be a Sponsored by Sprint fluff
    room. If there are bad experiences with Sprint, they have aevery right
    to post as much as those who have good experiences with Sprint.

    I'll be the first to admit I am Trolling to a degree. I think the

    Absolutely.

    But when you have people like Foolippe that twist peoples' words around,
    and flat-out lie to make their point, when you have people like Justin who
    has every right to be pissed off at Sprint but fills up the newsgroup with
    posts screaming at each other and then threatens to make the newsgroup "a
    cesspool," is that ok? (Mind you, I agree with Justin being pissed off. I
    think he got screwed. But that doesn't make the threats ok.)

    I have, I'll admit it. I think Sprint has big issues with it's middle
    (regional and below) managment that makes it a very unappealing company
    to work for. Unfortunately for the consumer this translates into poor
    service, poor training, and poor knowledge by supposed professionals who
    do this for a living. And with the current "value" focus at sprint has
    translated into more hostile employees who will take it out on customers
    and continue to feed this board. Ask the avarage sales rep at a store
    to fix your vision problem and you will get a person who maybe has had
    three days actual training on "what is sprint" and none with Vision
    services, or any of the test equipment he is supposed to be able to run
    tell you what is wrong with your phone.

    I find it extremely curious that since Jason has stopped posting,
    either because he just decided to leave, went on vacation or for some
    other personal or business reason, that folks still want to hear from
    Jason, considering all the personal attacks he made on many of us ...

    And no, just in case Phillipe ... in any ID he has used or will use in
    the future wants to say anything against yours truly for not
    discussing "the" post ... I do not agree with that Anon poster's
    message or his threats to contact Justin's employer.

    I just think it's a lot quieter, and much more pleasant in this
    newsgroup, now that he's gone. Let it rest folks ... and let's get
    back to the discussion of SPCS and trying to help those newbies who
    post here who need some help or advice ...

    Fair enough?

    I was addressing the "double standard ... free speech defense"
    accusation. I didn't defend the post as free speech, I simple said it
    wasn't illegal to post true information. You can say what you like
    about "MY" statement, but it simply is not true.

    I did what? "Allow the post"? I don't have the authority to "allow"
    anything. Nor did I claim the post was proper (although I find it

    I have my own greivances with Sprint (posted here for you to dig up if
    you like). You are singing to the choir buddy. What I was referring
    to is this CRAP from Justin:

    ---
    From: "Justin" <[email protected]>
    Message-ID: <[email protected]>
    Newsgroups: alt.cellular.sprintpcs
    Subject: Where did Tom go?

    Is he still hiding behind his kill filter? Come on out, Tom. Stop
    hiding.
    ---

    Or this:

    ---
    From: "Justin" <[email protected]>
    Message-ID: <[email protected]>
    Newsgroups: alt.cellular.sprintpcs
    Subject: Did Tom take his toys home to play?


    This newsgroup's really starting to go to the crapper. I mean, I see
    more and more people making claims they can't back up than ever
    before.

    If you want to flame someone, better know what you're talking about,
    right Rob? Right Chris?

    You don't call this trolling?
