My friend wants to do everything - legal, but does not have the money to hire a - team of lawyers???
I have a feeling any of my posts will be pounced upon by 2 trolls on this site that do not like me.
Please reply to the topic and leave personal bias out of the equation - please.
I am thrilled this new law went into effect and yes there is a written agreement.
These people used to be friends, but the friendship has terminated due to money issues - often happens.
Are you suggesting the person who repeatedly threatened me (and others who disagreed with him) with legal action should I not "CEASE AND DESIST" posting answers to the questions they asked on a public forum was a troll or silly because he regularly mentioned using his "team of lawyers" against me? If so, I agree with you 100%.
Save the over-used 'T'-card for genuine cases. To call someone that these days usually means that one is unable to support or defend their position. It is easier to just label someone who has an opposing view and be dismissive than to deal with questions or content head-on.
If someone wants to make a statement on a public forum (such as suggesting hiring someone to stand outside of a legal business and yell "CRIMINALS" at anyone passing by or entering the business) then they shouldn't get upset and threaten to let loose their "team of lawyers" if someone responds with their own opinion that it's a bad idea. If someone suggests that Peruvians are "like little children" on a public forum they shouldn't be surprised and threaten to sue someone who responds that they believe that's an offensive and culturally insensitive remark. If someone asks for advice on a public forum they shouldn't make threats because someone offers advice they don't like.
If they truly want advice, or believe that yelling CRIMINAL is a good idea, or that Peruvians really are "like little children," they should engage in a dialogue when challenged, explain their position and why it makes sense, explain why the opposing opinion or the advice offered doesn't make sense, just ignore the advice they don't like but that they ASKED for, or CEASE AND DESIST making statements or asking for advice on a PUBLIC FORUM. Someone who has repeatedly threatened people with legal action using their "team of lawyers" for participating on a public forum shouldn't be surprised or get upset when the person threatened responds to their silliness - perhaps with a level of silliness equal to their own.
I agree. Threatening people with a "team of lawyers" is ridiculous. If only there was a sarcasm font on expatperu, maybe my intent would have been clearer in recent posts (and PARTLY for this thread as well
). Apologies if you took that remark seriously.
