Hello. This is Jim, I've been an attorney for over 35 years, and I’ll do my best to answer your questions today. Our chat can be as long as you need it to be.

Just so you are aware, JA is only a legal information site. I do not provide representation and no attorney-client relationship is formed. My answers and comments should not be considered legal advice. It is always best to hire a local attorney to review the specifics of your particular case to ensure that a proper review is conducted.

Finally, it's not unusual for me to be handling multiple customer needs simultaneously; there may be a delay of a few minutes in my responses to your replies.

Unless there's more to the thread than is embedded in your tweet ( I assume that you're MermaidKT), no, there's nothing actionable in that.

Have I answered your questions today?

Customer
thank you.
Customer
At what point does it become actionable?
Customer
Cause I guess my line is different from the law's.

If we're talking about the same entries, keep in mind that when speech is involved, the First Amendment comes into play. Expressions of opinion (and the definition of that is very broad) are protected. And, threats have to be quite specific to be actionable. "You watch out, you'll get yours someday" isn't actionable; "I'm gong to kill you" probably would be.

Customer
Ok that makes sense.

Although I cannot always give good news, I am straightforward.
