There are LOADS of incorrect things posted on here and plenty of other websites around the Internet. No need to drag up a dormant thread just to correct someone who hasn't been on this forum for seven years.
I disagree. Anyway was the thread dormant or was there a more recent posting? And I don't correct individual forum members, that would be rude. I point to the correct law.
"Sticky" threads purport to be guidance to the general public.
Posts that enforce your suggested practice tend to be abandoned by real lawyers and experts. Reinforcing a tendency to street wisdom and myth. IMHO. But then I'm only online this week because I have nothing better to do; I have no dream of becoming a 'forum legend'.
