Whaleoil seems to think that he is above the law. One day he’ll find out that he is not. <Update That day has come>
But then It’s good to have people on the edge pushing the boundaries of New Zealand’s inoperable libel and suppression laws. Those laws need to change.
<UPDATE – an excellent post from Media Law Journal on name suppression matters. Apparently it is not ‘contempt of court’ to reveal a name – except in rare cases. It is an offense though. >
I think it’s funny… took me a little while to work out exactly which letter of the alphabet and which common medium of exchange he was referring to!
There is no way that there is contempt of court. Neither image identifies the fool and he is not named, using your logic I am sure any random book picked from a shelf would breach the court order.
I of course used logic in the most generous way, as you seem a bit dim.
It may be, it may not be – if you have not already I’d have a good long chat with a lawyer well-versed in libel and name suppression law subject if I were you Whale Oil. It’s good to walk the line, and but one miss-step and it’s goodbye to the Oil.
