Sorry, but libelous statements are not a matter of free speech, despite what some may try to tell you.
Garth could be held legally liable for what he said. Perhaps he will now be added to the list of pending lawsuits over the issue. It is very sad indeed that things have reached that point, but there you have it.
Folks, it always comes back to the same thing - please think before you post!!!

I think that this forum is designed for sharing opinions and imparting information. Garth did the former. I do not feel that he did so in order to directly or indirectly insult anyone on the list, and it is my opinion that he honestly feels those opinions which he expressed.
Is it the sort of opinion that gets one's panties in a bunch? Yes. Should we disagree if we do? Of course.
No reason, though, why we should be harsh, unkind or mean-spirited. Remember, we are all in this together, and there aren't that many of us out there. Let's be friends as they circle the wagons, OK?
