    Should Coaches/organization's
    with unethical behavior be exposed?

    If they are exposed, is using a public forum or a social media site to expose them the only way they can truly be exposed to the softball community?

    We all hear about it, or see it, one way or another. I want to believe there are only a few that fall in to this category. I’m sure there are more stand up organizations than there are unethical ones.

    I think if you name someone with accusations attached it's fine as log as you name yourself as well.

    Word of mouth is a powerful tool. Social media can increase the range and speed the process. If a person really feels the need to defame an organization or individual, it is well within your right. It could come at a price. To have an opinion is one thing but to have a malicious intent can come with consequences. This topic needs some legal minds to share what they know. It's a sue-happy world. While defamation may not always be criminal, it can always have its day in civil court. That can be costly.

    Sharing a poor experience while carefully wording it can be beneficial for others to form an opinion. It's not against the law to tell the truth but a wise person once told me if you write it down you can never take that back. Having said this, I agree with Justamom in that if you plan to judge others you should do it with enough accountability to share your true identity and not hide behind an alias.
