I recently read and saw on the news that if you post something bad about a person on the internet, anywhere, facebook, this site, etc. that you can be sued and prosecuted for slander by that person!
You can also find out who did it if you have someone that can trace your IP address. Wow, people better watch out what they post on the internet!!!!! You know what they always say, be careful what you put in writing!!!It can come back to BITE you!!!

The truth will stand when nothing else will and if it is the truth it is not considered slander.

Liable

Which means you are legally responsible: You are liable for the damage caused by your action. The truth is the truth though. You gotta prove damage was done as the result of your actions or words.

You all are wrong. It is LIBEL not LIABLE
Libel
Libel is defined as defamation by written or printed words, pictures, or in any form other than by spoken words or gestures.[13] The law of libel originated in the 17th century in England. With the growth of publication came the growth of libel and development of the tort of libel.

Liable comes from liability
Legal liability is the legal bound obligation to pay debts.[1]
In law a person is said to be legally liable when they are financially and legally responsible for something. Legal liability concerns both civil law and criminal law. See Strict liability. Under English law, with the passing of the Theft Act 1978, it is an offense to evade a liability dishonestly. Payment of damages usually resolved the liability. Vicarious liability arises under the common law doctrine of agency – respondeat superior – the responsibility of the superior for the acts of their subordinate.
In commercial law, limited liability is a form of business ownership in which business owners are legally responsible for no more than the amount that they have contributed to a venture. If for example, a business goes bankrupt an owner with limited liability will not lose unrelated assets such as a personal residence (assuming they do not give personal guarantees). This is the standard model for larger businesses, in which a shareholder will only lose the amount invested (in the form of stock value decreasing). For an explanation see business entity.
Manufacturer's liability is a legal concept in most countries that reflects the fact that producers have a responsibility not to sell a defective product. See product liability.

So if you see # 4 above you have to misrepresent damaging someone. So, unless you are lieing/misrepresenting someone you are free to speak the truth.

That would be libel, not slander. Slander is when you say something thay is defaming and false. Libel is when you write something that is defaming and false.

If you have a few minutes, try reading the Paducah Topix. The Topix forum here is very mild compared to that one - and they very freely mention full names. :-)

Name Calling

Bristol, VA

So...if someone is calling someone a bitch, slut, whore, and using their name, what can happen..How do you prove or not prove these statements are true or false?

Or, if someone owns a business and another business is spreading lies and gossip about that business, what can be done???

Can you answer that "Reply" or "Libel", and are you a lawyer?
