And in civilised nations law and order is respected and seen as a very good thing and there is no fear in appealing to it.
Britain is not always as civilised as it could be, but letting proper authorities know when appropiete is no bad thing.
In the case of state law a person is legally obliged to report any crime observed if I'm correct anyway :o)
in all we do need to more strict here convicts r getting away w/ loads of stuff before they get a life time sentence its rediculous. in the last few months several cases were brought to light by the press and news media tht sexual offenders are taking young girls and killing thm. of course this does not surprise me none cause of our laws and the system these offenders keep getting out and slapped on the wrist for stuff thy should be in prision for w/o parole! now thy make up new laws tht these offenders have to now wear ankle monorting devices and live in population. yeah like tht is going to stop these offenders from doing wht thy desire!

Nope. You're free to try interpet it that way, if you like, but your post was just a silly attempt at ensuring you had the last word, as if that is somehow important. You might also want to delete the annoying duplicate posts you made.
Actually, you heard neither and read both. I'm glad you laughed, just be glad I can't actually be bothered with you. As for the elephants, I am unsure what you find amusing unless you've developed a sense of humour about the fact you are so often wrong. Seems unlikely though.
You're wrong about the elephants and you're wrong about court too. I wouldn't be humiliated and I wouldn't be the one who wound up poorer, either. Not familiar with court are you? Res assured I'd have no trouble winning the case if I took it and I'd get costs awarded probably with token damages. However, you're not actually important enough as I said and it would be nothing more than malice to prosecute you, so I shan't bother. I can be vindictive but only when it's really warranted, you aren't actually that important.

But if you use your imagination there are situations of that extream a nature were informing the police wont help, we have many people who get off after doing horrible things. Some people take the law into there own hands. And for some spicific crimes i applaud that. If two people have a disagreement is normal to step outside and scrap it out. take care of your own problems was my point.
One of the reasons why law isn't as effective as it could be is due to the non-reporting of crime.
Good relations with the police is a good thing and should be strived for, else a climate of fear passes on and relations break down and nothing can be done.
Adopting some macho ideology of non-reporting does not help this situation, and does not aid the general happiness.

You seem to have a poor grasp of the meaning of the word b!tch, however, leaving that aside. Whatever you think may or may not go on in Qu/ebec is irrelevant. You were still wrong with your assertion. As for the misuse of the image, the fact he thought it funny doesn't alter the nature of the offence. Also given that someone else was 'warned' about something similar that they genuinely did do as an "April Fool" means he already knew it was inappropriate, so no dice there. If you bothered to read my post you'd know I already pointed out why I probably won't bother taking him to court; precisely the fact that he is insignifcant in terms of defamation and that no commerical motive is present. I suppose the long words confused you, eh? ;-)
It won't make any difference to how the site deals with it though, as it's a serious offence in itself as well as clear breach of their usage agreement. Now run along and stop talking out of your arse, eh?
Aye, almost all legal systems hold you to be an accessory to the crime if you fail to report a crime you witnessed. There are some 'cop outs' in as much as, if you did not realize it was a crime being committed or you were threatened into silence. In general though, aye. His statement is total nonsense anyway as the USA and Canada both have a much higher report rate than the UK where it is common for crimes to go unreported out of apathy rather than fear or ignorance.
