I guess my ip address was traced, and now I'm being sued for "slandering" a nameless person on topix. No details, but I got my letter in the mail upon returning from vacation. Included, I received a copy of the entire thread, a summons for records, a report, and court date. Posters beware!

Goes to show you that people should be more worried about what they do than what other people do....stop the rumor mills and the drama and worry less about lies about another person and focus more on the truths of yourself.....

Well,, I think you will win the case because slander is oral defamation. The cyber bullying laws that Ohio has, which is the ONLY charges that could be filed , arise from LIBEL actions. Libel is written defamation.

In short, check a dictionary before you go posting LIES to scare people into not posting on topix......

Some people place them all as one, and do not understand the reason behind it. Maybe it wasn't necessarily slander. Maybe the person didn't understand what she was in trouble for. People who are computer savvy can google too! I myself would be cautious. You my friend sound like a want a be know it all! Now go on and correct my post with all your free time.

freedom of speech comes with a price when posting on an online forum. You can be traced and sued. Google it! Read the terms of use before you post.

You CAN NOT be sued for posting about a nameless person. You could be talking about Yogi F'n Bear for all anyone knows. Whoever told you that is FULL OF IT.

Some people place them all as one, sure. Those are the dummies that don't know the difference

A lawyer, however, would not. There is a big difference between libel and slander and IF a suit were actually filed, the lawyer would use the correct word.

I don't understand how someone could be a wanna-be know it all ( you either know things or you don't) so. Apparently I do not in fact, know it all

there is a difference in freedom of speech and slander

freedom of speech is saying someone is a b**ttcchh or you think they are nasty etc its opinions

freedom of speech however does not protect you from making up lies about people

like person A has aids.. Person A is a sex offender Person A sleeping with animals .... now if those are lies yes you can be sued but if they are the truth then no you can not be sued

Don't quote me on this, as I am not a legal expert in anyway. I'm just going on the way I understand things. With the tracing of an IP address, I thought that could only be done if something criminal is involved, example being threatening to harm someone or trying to solicit something criminal. Libel which I believe this site involves I don't believe is a criminal offense, I believe it falls under a civil matter. Correct me if I'm wrong, like I stated I'm no expert.

I really have nothing to prove to any of you, so there really isn't a reason to defend myself, but okay. The person had a name... Just didn't post it on here. I tried to give you a heads up that was all. Of course this wouldn't be topix if you all didn't come on here trashing my post. The letter didn't state slander, it had much more other bs and fancy words. I posted it was slander to sum it up, into a quick post. You could spend your day searching everyone alphabetically and see it in the court docs in you want. Enough info from me.
