A girl wrote on her blog about a deceased schoolmate. She said that the death was well deserved. When she realised the insensitivity of her blog post, she decided to attend the wake to apologize to the family of the deceased, but angry teenage
mutant ninja mobs attacked her outside the deceased house. Here are the Newspaper scanlations. And this is her blog.
Lesson to be learned:
- Blogger, in a way is similar to journalist . Although bloggers are not regulated by the journalism code of conduct, but a common sense might need to be used. Unless you are living in United States, where your freedom of speech is protected by the 2nd Amendment. But a defamation/libel lawsuit is still possible to be made against you.
- Blog entries are accessible to public. Whatever said in public might be used as evidence in the court of law. So please help yourself by not having any blog postings with any potential liability
- I really need to control my mouth (T_T) and re-checking my previous entries for any potential liability. Any comments?
