(Trust.org)   If you've ever complained about genetically modified food on the Internet, expect some calls from lawyers asking if you want to be in a class-action lawsuit against some company, because that's how class-action lawyers drum up clients now   (trust.org) divider line 25

Makes sense - I see nothing wrong with that.  Do subbs have another suggestion other than using what is presently the world's biggest and easiest mass communication device?  Sending a letter? To whom if you don't know who a potential customer is until they reveal themselves using the world's biggest and easiest mass communication device.

To borrow from my post on yesterday's thread: I am blaming GMOs for my loss of consortium, gimme money. ;b

/I refuse to accept being 50 as the reason, it MUST be GMOs

Holy shiat your reading comprehension is bad. I mean,  subby, did you just read the headline and then stop right there and go off to Fark to submit your little thread?

Genetically modified food made my keys fall out of the ignition making me run over grandma.  Granted I was doing 70 and she was standing 50 feet from the road but still, I am scared for life.

Has anyone pointed out that subby has zero reading comprehension skills?

Reading is hard and justice is stupid. Right, subby?

The only sensible thing to do now is to point and laugh at the people who post in this thread that obviously haven't read the article.

Not yet. Still waiting on that.

I'd like to complain about GM, because I haven't yet gotten any money from genetically modified General Motors vehicles burning corn fuel.
 
2014-03-19 11:01:48 AM  
I complain about everything, how much money do I get?

Maybe it is Genetically Modified Cars? We've lost. People can't even read a story before submitting it.

The text at the header of the website was amusing though:


We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. By continuing to browse our site, you are giving your consent for us to set cookies.


How about no and I continue reading anyway? What's that? You can't stop me from blocking your obtrusive cookies? That's too bad, really.

Good luck winning that case. Science tends to prevail in court rooms.

We mock this kind of shiat trolling when it comes up on other websites, apparently the mods approve of it here.
 
2014-03-19 11:29:25 AM  
that's an entirely different kind of trolling altogether now.

Believe it or not, that's how a lot of class action litigation starts.  The lawyers identify the possibility of a lawsuit first -- then have to find a 'representative plaintiff' to actually start the lawsuit.

Trolling aside...

I was out to lunch with a lawyer friend in Utah and we overheard some guy behind us who, well, really needed a lawyer.  All sorts of issues.  My friend said that he was not allowed to go up to him and say, "hey, sounds like you need a lawyer.  Wanna hire me?"  Some sort of "ethics" rules.

Would that be a regional, state, or national thing, and could it apply here?

/didn't RTFA other than seeing what it was actually about.

That is when you stand up and say "Say you sound like you need a lawyer.  Here meet Bob, he is a lawyer"

It's a pretty general rule in most states (probably almost all, don't know for sure) that lawyers simply cannot go up to someone they know has a legal claim and offer their services, unless that person is a close friend or family. This is to prevent ambulance chasing.

Let's point at subby and laugh!

This is GM

This is GMO  soy

www.independentsciencenews.org

I can see where you  made the mistake.


Minor point of order, I have no idea that is actually GMO soy, just playing the chances here that it has some of the Roundup Ready genes there.  It's domesticated too, which despite naysayers is a genetic modification, just one we did before direct gene injection using different ways of farking with plant genes.

Both abbreviate to "GM".  The lawyers are buying ads on Google when people search for "GM".  So, people search for genetically modfied foods would see the ads meant for people who were searching for General Motors.  Subby was being cute by pointing out how this was silly.

CSB: Today, my wife received a call from an individual with a heavy Indian accent, asking if she had been the recipient of bladder sling surgery.

...because that's a big ol' class action lawsuit in progress.
