I have already contacted Topix and will be contacting the Michigan State Police in regards to the comment made by "chuck v" Your post has already been Permalinked, so even if it disappears now, you have been permanently linked to the malicious, unfounded, libelous etc.com ment that you made. I will be suing you. You can contact me, to discuss the matter, and to avoid criminal charges--should we come to an agreement. Short of that, get you finances in order and your personal matters in order, as your life is about to change DRASTICALLY.

Lots of luck with that. Below is the definition of libel.

noun 1. Law. a. defamation by written or printed words, pictures, or in any form other than by spoken words or gestures.
b. the act or crime of publishing it.
c. a formal written declaration or statement, as one containing the allegations of a plaintiff or the grounds of a charge.

2. anything that is defamatory or that maliciously or damagingly misrepresents

While inappropriate, his question (which doesn't accurately identify anyone) doesn't meet the legal standard of libel. However, your post does meet the legal standard for extortion. Let us know how much your bail was...

"... a defamation by written...words"
Even though the poster attempts to protect himself/herself by posting the malicious comment as a question, there is no doubt that posting the individuals name, was deliberate, intentional, malicious, etc.
Curiously, why would you be on the side of a sick individual who, for no other reason than to be malicious, would make suck a post? How would you like it if someone said that you--BY NAME-- were a serial killer...child molester...etc.
I'm guessing that you are related to the poster--if not the poster. See you in court.
If the poster, believes, in any way, shape or form, that I am attempting to extort money from them...please do not respond. That is not my intent. I will see you in court.

I can guarantee you a few things. You will be sued. You will receive a visit by a State Police detective...and possible an Agent from the the FBI. You will regret that you made the malicious, defamatory, and libelous comment. Your name will become know. I simply made you an offer to contact me, as I know how this will play out...you'll eventually lose BIG TIME. I thought that I would offer you the chance to settle this quickly and amicably. The ball in your court, for a day or two.

Can you read your own post? Your very definition of libel spell out EXACTLY what "chuck v" did. To state that she/he did not "accurately" identify a specific person...is moronic. Just because someone replaces a vowel or two with characters, does not exonerate the criminal act--it was malicious, intentional, deliberate, and criminal.

FYI: The State Police are required, once an official complaint has been lodged, to FULLY investigate the said complaint. This means, that if you post to this thread, you will be contacted by the State Police. Your relationship to the accused (one "chuck v") will be ascertained and you may be required to appear in court to testify. The State Police do not have a choice. They cannot interview one or two posters...they are required to contact every single poster. This means you.

Again, lotsa luck with that. You are making assumptions that aren't factual. What you are attempting is extortion plain and simple. Please call MSP. They will laugh at you. The FBI, now thats really funny!!

I didn't agree with the other poster, but I certainly don't agree with you either. I think you're both idiotic nincompoops, with very little grey matter upstairs. You shouldn't assume that everyone in topix world who disagrees with you is related.

I can guarantee you that the police will NOT be at my door for my comments. But go right ahead and try. I'm sure that some detective from the MSP would love to come to sunny Fl right now. Heck, he could even stay with us, that way they don't have to fork out money for a hotel. We can discuss what a weenie you are.

What would make someone think that their malicious comments, posted on the internet, were anonymous?

You would have to be a complete moron, to believe that you could not be tracked down via s post that you made on any site.

Correct, the Michigan State Police probably will not make a trip out of State, unless they deem it pertinent, to investigate a complaint.

However, they certainly will ascertain the identify of the poster, and whether the poster is relevant to the investigation.

The Michigan State Police are not the Keystone Cops. They will discover who you are, and they, and the prosecuting attorney, will determine--not you--whether you are germane to the investigation.

My question, to you, is: "Why are you so insistent in 'sticking up" for someone like 'chuck v', who so recklessly and maliciously chose to single out an innocent person and to libel them? Why would you stick up for a person like this? Why? Do you know either party? If not, than why?

You certainly seem to have a reason to be at a Michigan site, when you state that you are in Florida. What is your reason for putting in your 2 cents?

Oh, I certainly know that the Police CAN track my posts. I'm saying that they will CHOOSE NOT to. I was not the original poster, nor have I said anything that was illegal, or even against topix terms of service. Unlike you.

Again, I am not sticking up for the original poster, and in fact my original comment to you was respectful. You are the one who went off the deep end and got nasty. I simply pointed out the error of your ways. When you post on a PUBLIC FORUM, the public is likely to respond. Furthermore, I can and will post on any site I please, and I don't see where that's your business. I didn't tell you to go back to Illinois (of course, since I'm not stupid I don't assume that someones isp is where they actually live).

If you had actually spoken to the police, they would have told you not to respond here, because IF you had a case, you have hurt it. Now, how would I know that??

My offer stands, the police are more than welcome to come down.
