    BUT...

    the validity of a lawsuit CAN be prevented by not allowing the point of legal jeopardy to take place, i.e., if we do not allow DIY advice to be given, then we cannot be held liable for giving DIY advice that leads to injury or death.


    So, no DIY for dangerous things. Advice like "check your air filter," or "is your thermostat set to cool" is permitted.

    Not discussion of current draw for motors which is clearly directed by the desire to replace a motor oneself. THAT is DIY.

    Every time I call my congressman and suggest a hunting season for lawyers to help "thin the herd" I get all sorts of yelling and screaming, then the phone just clicks.

    Who do you think is buying off the congressmen? They know which side their bread is buttered on... Also have you ever noticed a high percentage of congressmen were lawyer before getting into politics. They're going to stick up for their own...

    Well, the Association of Trial Lawyers (now know as the less obvious American Association for justice) supports just one party.

    Care to hazard a guess which party they wholeheartedly support?

    I don't know the answer but I would guess they support whichever party sticks closest to the intent of the constitution.

    Actually, they support the party that views the constitution as being inconvenient, preventing them from fully implementing their desired agenda.

    If that's so then my guess would be the Communist party.

    Indeed. This is about AOP, not ARP. Lol.

    Advice can be given in this forum by those with "Professional Member*" as the designation under their user name.

    Not New Guest

    Not Regular Member

    Not Professional Member

    ONLY Professional Member*

    Look in the bottom of this post for links that explain the Rules, and the method for becoming a Professional Member and adding the *.

    Thanks.

    THanks guys for the * by the name. That was fast, only applied last night. Sorry about posting some without it. I was not aware of it at first for I have not been out here for while. Ya'll kept getting on to people about posting without authorization, I thought you were talking to someone else. It was funny when I realized you were talking to me,........
    Bad information is worse than no information at all.

    There are three kinds of people in this world. Those who can count and those who can't!

    Can someone clarify? We can't post at all in AOP, or we just can't post advice?
