Now that I’m back on TurtleBoy Sports, I’m harkening back to my first incarnation on this blog. The fun part is as I was cruising through some old posts to see just what I was getting myself back into, one of the first posts I ran across featured a phenomenon from back in the day: the “Internet Lawyer.”
The “Internet Lawyer” gets mentioned so often on TurtleBoy Sports that I’m surprised usual sponsor and real attorney Anthony Salerno doesn’t use that tag. Regardless, the point is the first post of my return to TBS is less than six hours old, and I’ve already been hit with an email threatening to sue me.
In other words, a constant of writing for this site is there’s going to be the nudniks who like to think they know the law. That’s why their threats are so hilarious. That’s also why I decided I needed to break this piece out of the archives to answer exactly that question.
It doesn’t matter if you aren’t a blogger; you need to pay attention to this. If you comment on these posts, eventually the social justice warriors, nudniks, and hoodrat heroes will eventually festoon your inbox with exactly these kind of threats.
Even though the following piece is two year old, it’s really timeless. Click here to go to Dubsism.com to learn what an “internet lawyer” really is, and why they are about as frightening as a used tootbrush.
