i know who's on my list:

the airline industry for their ridiculous added fees (esp. the checked baggage fee) and TSA for insisting on inane security checks, most of which have been demonstrated to be ineffective.

i would also like to sue billythrilly for being wrong about virtually everything except for music and women.

I'd like to sue all of the people who come up with frivolous reasons to sue someone :D

A law suit is merely a matter for the CIVIL courts.

But I'd much prefer to launch a full blown indictment, which would be a matter for the CRIMINAL courts.

Bravo (the network, not the AW'er) for their blatantly false advertising of their Real Housewives of... series. If you're stretching the term by considering they're wives and they live in houses, then yes, they are housewives. Instead, we see groups of incredibly rich b***es moaning about how hard they have it being rich.

Viacom as the parent network of MTV and VH1 for multiple counts.

MTV and VH1 have blocks of music video programming, but only after 3:00 AM. Because most people I know aren't around to watch, they need to change the "music" in MTV and "video hits" in VH1 to something more relevant.
As such, "The Real World" is now misnamed. Since the executives at MTV and Viacom realized they could direct the shenanigans they way they wanted by leaving alcohol within direct access of the participants, therefore creating *DRAMA!*, it's no longer "real".
Since MTV really doesn't show music videos that often any longer, they continue to give awards to the 15 or 16 they do play. It's comparable to Major League Baseball's "World" Series, where the contestants are confined to teams from North America.
In general, they insist on shoehorning in Perez Hilton into whatever "reality" series. They need to keep his gob off my TV.

I'd like to sue Bravo (the Aw'er, not the network) for asking about people to sue, then proceeding to provide non-people on his list.

I can't think of anyone to sue. Guess I'm just not that bitter and self-absorbed.

Can I sue the dumbass who first slapped network logos in the lower right corner of the TV screen and left them there for the entire show, and then decided it wasn't enough and added graphics advertising their other shows which take up as much as a fourth of the whole screen and often clash with the tone of what you're watching?

I was watching a death scene on USA when Debra Messing shimmied down a rope filling one side of the screen, advertising "The Starter Wife."

Bolding for reply:

If ya sue them, they will raise their prices and add more fees. Defeats the whole of your suing them.

The other on there? Good luck!

The ALA for calling it "Banned Books Week" when it's really "Free Publicity for Ten Books That Are In No Real Danger Of Ever Being Banned In Any Real Sense of the Word Week."

I would like to sue old media for seeding the internet to amateurs, thus creating the new media and a business model that is impossible to sustain.

I want to sue all the studios and producers for putting out asinine reality TV shows. They single-handedly lower the national IQ and expose the country as one giant genetic cesspool -- then again, maybe it's not a bad thing.

No, I like amateur porn;)


Really, what I am talking about is the fact that newspapers are now dying because they let amateurs take over the internet in the beginning of the era and now are struggling to fight back in terms of revenue and jobs.

Amen brother Ray!

Let's get a bunch of us together and we can turn it into some sort of class action suit.

I'd also like to sue idiot parents who pull their children out of specialized programs that they desperately need to learn how to cope in the world around them. Sigh...

When you're ready to file, Maryn, let me know. I'll join you.

Wasn't it a :cough: writers' strike that inspired the studios and producers to create 'reality TV' in the first place?

I would like to sue scarletpeaches for the countless hours of my time she has stolen by way of MSN IM conversations, which went on under duress and entirely against my will.

I would like to sue a flight attendant from an airline with shall not be named (but rhymes with Shunited Chairlines) who, during a bout of particularly severe and nervewracking turbulence over the Pacific Ocean, got on the loudspeaker and reminded us that in the event of an emergency landing, to please leave our carry-on on board.

I would like to sue whoever taught my husband to drive. Oh wait...I taught him to drive. Crap.

I would like to sue Jared Leto, Shannon Leto, and Colin Farrell. I won't post the charges publicly, but if they're willing to settle in private, I'll drop the suit.

I would like to sue box jellyfish (as a species) for causing certain areas of water around Okinawa to be closed to snorkeling. Those are some badass places to snorkel. WHAT the hell?

I think that's it for me.
