Are There Any Ground Rules?


I know of a bunch of people involved in a pretty long-term dispute online.  One guy got a bunch of poop mailed to him.  Another man has had to deal with threats to his job. A third guy had to explain to his wife’s colleagues that somebody was smearing him online.  A county department of social services complaint sneaked into an online discussion.  

Someone who used to work for the National Institutes of Health (and who should know all about health privacy laws) said he knew about an individual’s HIV status, and even how the disease was spread to this individual.Image result for hipaa

Are there rules?  Are social security numbers off limits?  Voter registration records? Bankruptcy records?  

What if I discover that someone has been seeing a psychiatrist, while calling others crazy?  Or someone hasn’t been seeing a doctor, though he’s been claiming to be ill?

    Rules for most, but apparently never for CretinIntercourse. Yeah, he did it.

    After you run out of sky, you usually hit the ground.

    That’s kind of a rule.

      And wow! Hey! What’s this thing suddenly coming towards me very fast?
      Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding
      name like… ow… ound… round… ground! That’s it! That’s a good name
      – ground!
      I wonder if it will be friends with me?
      And the rest, after a sudden wet thud, was silence.
