BWM: I need to make a brief explanation how "gag" orders work... they don't call you and say "you're not allowed to speak anymore" they MAY call you and warn you that you need to "tone down" your conversation, but they don't tell you "you're on a gag order." The warning would only come from a friend... they come visit you and take everything related to your offense. Computer, files, phone and records...... so for someone to tell me they were put on a gag order has several problems:
1) you wouldn't tell anyone you couldn't talk, you'd just go away,
2) saying it in public goes completely against your "gag" so you're just looking for publicity to "sound" more important than you are,
3) you probably have nothing else to say but since you can't just say nothing, "gagged" sounds way more exciting than nothing
HeIsFaithful: In other words gag orders are bogus.
HeIsFaithful: BWM what are the chances of that happening??

BWM: HeIsFaithful I have never been "warned" I have been asked to help keep things toned down... it was not by an agency but by someone else whom I respect so I tried to help...some ppl can't be helped but when the time comes they will pay the penalty...
BWM: *agency --- by that I mean the dreaded THREE letters... yeah
1+1: BWM help me out here, but I am seriously beginning to doubt if this thing will EVER happen. I have lots of peep that I know thinking that too.
BWM: 1+1 I have it under the best assurances IT WILL HAPPEN and THIS IS REAL... after that it gets sketchy with the timing and such
BWM: we spend so much time in this "world" (I mean chat forums) that sometimes we lose touch with just how few we really are in the big picture... we tie everything we hear or see on the news to our situation and it creates sometimes a bit more drama than we need to have. Again, this is REAL! You just need to understand that like so many other things in your life we don't have any control over it... but will reap the benefits at some point...
