IANAL: I am not a lawyer.
TINLA: This is not legal advice.

In some countries, it's illegal for someone who isn't a qualified lawyer
to pass themself off as one, or to give legal advice. This is, as far as
I know, the case in the UK, and probably the USA also.

Also, if someone who *is* a qualified lawyer gives legal advice, that
can be construed as creating attorney-client privilege, and also opens
the lawyer up to legal action if the advice turns out to be bad.
