Warning be careful what you write about people on this site. I just had a knock on my door certified mail from a lawyer. My IP Address has been posting slanderous comments and I am being sued. Called the lawyer up to $5000 per comment. So no such thing as freedom of speech. I am hoping to just settle with the people. Just a warning to others.

The server for this site is located overseas. I doubt very much some attorney from here got a warrant issued to get an IP addy from a foreign country.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha haha!!!!! Whatever!!!!
The truth is somebody is posting things about you and you're trying to scare them.

Here's a tip for you. If somebody posts something about you that isn't nice or something embarrassing, first of all don't respond to it. Don't give them room to continue the attack. Second click the little link at the bottom of their post "report abuse" and give slander for a reason. The post will be deleted within one or two days. If there is 4 or 5 complaints from posts on the same thread, they will delete the entire thread.

And Third stop worrying about losers who cant say things to your face. It say way more about their character than yours.

Happy dad no lie. I have the letter from the lawyer and I am not trying to scare anyone. Just informing people that this is indeed real. Rouskey is the lawyer. I have learned and will not do this again. I am paying for this and I shouldn't have posted such bad stuff. This is not overseas as suggested. I guess I commented on the wrong people and won't do it again.
Wellllll...... I shall remain dubious. However if you chose to slander somebody anonymously then you deserve to be exposed and sued. And stop crying about free speech. Free speech doesn't give you the right to be slanderous. IF this is true somebody went to a lot of trouble and expense to uncover you.

Why do you feel the need to keep talking. LOL isn't this actually and admission? Didn't you just make the lawsuit a slam dunk? I say you're a liar. If they got your IP address once they will get it again and use it in the lawsuit since you so kindly came on here and confessed to the whole world.

Try again. I don't believe you.

LOL! The topix servers are not in the U.S.therfore they are not bound by U.S. Law and for you information you can change your ip address anytime and every time you post or you can use a proxy or a IP hide program and Judges and Lawyers know this and thats why 99.9% of all internet related crime or slander gets thrown out of court because they know IP addreses tracking is not accurate.

What purpose do you have with this? You're obviously lying. Scan the letter and post it. Feel free to black out your name.

I just had the same thing happen and same lawyer. If I knew you I would like to see how to handle this. I am done making foolish comments. I thought this was a scam but I will find out. I will not give any further information on this topic. Just realize what you write you are responsible for

I could just see this in court. Can you identify the poster by ISP #? By screen name?? Can you prove that a neighbor kid wasn't pulling a prank? Reasonable doubt? I have to go now. Someone is at the door I don't recognize with papers in their hands.
yeah yeah yeah

I think you have to be served papers personally, not by certified mail. At least that's how it works on Law and Order.

This was not court documents. A notice from lawyer. I was not served I received by mail I had to sign for. Sounds like a long process and cost some dollars. I will post no specifics as advised not to.
