Publishing Private Health Info

By Bucky Kaufman (MCSD) ·
TechRepublic Member Oz_Media posted personal medical information about another member in a discussion forum - information he has no idea about its accuracy. Without a signed released and *massive* security controls, such releases of private medical information are illegal.

What do you think? Do you think people who release unconfirmed, privledged medical information about others to slander them in public discussion forums should be prosecuted? Should they simply have their posting privledges removed?

Your shots at Bucky are justified, yet he is just a tired old man with no direction in life and some real medical, psychological problems.

If this was a personal web page, no

by zlitocook In reply to Publishing Private Health ...

No this is a technical web site, no personal information should be posted! Real or what the other person thinks. We should be helping others not flaming each other! There are or should be moderators how look at and remove these type of postings. Any one who keeps posting things like this should have thier log on removed, or restricted. I have wanted to say things about a few people but my good upbringing and my respect for others would not let me do this! I may be a old fart but I still like to learn what others have to say.

Oh please

by JamesRL In reply to Publishing Private Health ...

You show no evidence that Oz or anyone else has access to confidential information. So how can they release what they don't have.

Oz suggested you had medical problems, but did not present this along with any evidence. OZ did not allude to possession of any confidential information.

Oz insulted you. You insult others. Get over it.

If you think you have a case for slander, go for it. But behave under the same rules yourself.

That's a bit harsh and 'out there' isn't it?? Okay, Here's a scoop for you. Oz has toenail fungus and his hair is frizzy. And, I've heard that Maxwell Edison has an extra baby toe on his left foot. Sue me.

Mae you are a naughty little girl and as

Punishment you'll have to say 25 Hail Marys and 50 Our Fathers.

Incidentally do not forget to empty the poor box on the way out.

Isn't it stupid when someone carries on like this particularly when they are far from faultless as well. I guess it is a sign that they think they are totally correct in dishing it out but feel differently when it comes back to hit them in the face.

The whole thing seems just a tad Hypocritical to me in this instance.

By the way just how did you know OZ's medical problems?

Also be sure to lock your door tonight as Maxwell might come and visit you with his Silver Hammer!

Do you watch the Simpsons?

by maecuff In reply to Holy S**t

Because your post made me do that thing Homer does when he sees his sister in law. That hudder thing. Seriously Garion, I've seldom agreed with many of your rather frightening rants, and you have disagreed with me more than once, and not always in the nicest way. Then, you find out I'm a girl, and you want to know if I'm SINGLE? If I have a PICTURE? Very odd, however, if you must know:

I'm 49 years old. I weigh 280 pounds. I have a large, hairy mole on my cheek. I've decided that my thinning hair looks best dyed blue/black.

Curiosity satisfied?

Mae I'm rolling around on the floor laughing

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Do you watch the Simpsons ...

You are a very naughty girl and now you'll have to do far Hail Mary's and out fathers to make up for your sins!

But I did love the bit about not classifying yourself as a"Barnyard Animal" however your description of your self well words escape me!
