A Texas couple who filed a defamation lawsuit over three years ago against anonymous posters on the Internet forum Topix.com won a $13.8 million judgment from a jury. Topix had to turn over the IP info, and people are being held liable for their actions.

Now you're going to give a bunch of these white trash imbeciles ideas. They won't even bother to read and understand why these people were able to win.

You hit the nail squarely on the head. I can think of one that will hijack this thread and twist and contort the content to fit their deluded agenda.

What has happened to the two in that story is far from anything that has been posted here. They had a true defamation case.

Tis an awful shame what the Leshers have had to deal with b/c of comments on Topix. I can't imagine dealing w/ such horrendous accusations. They literally had their lives turned upside down.

Interesting article. Thanks for sharing Sandy.

And how could you possibly know that? Do you personally know everyone that gets lambasted on these forums?

The article is about defamation. I do not need to know anyone because its the post that decides if its true defamation as in the article.

True defamation is easily proven with malicious intent.

To call someone deluded who can prove that maliciousness has taken place has a case for defamation.

"Malicious intent refers to the intent, without just cause or reason, to commit a wrongful act that will result in harm to another. It is the intent to harm or do some evil purpose." For instance, a person who viciously lies about a person to cause ostracism and abandonment.

Remember, you all called me delusional for speaking about the abuse of a man who didn't like that I wouldn't just "drop it" that he likes to play with little girls heads and manipulate their emotions, leading them to believe he's one thing, but then being another, and all while using a grown woman who lies to cover for him because he has provided for her.

Call me delusional all you want, but just because you didn't witness first hand, and there are some perverted corrupt cops on the force, doesn't mean it didn't happen!

You people are a shame!

"Definition of MALICIOUS: having or showing a desire to cause harm to someone : given to, marked by, or arising from malice <malicious gossip> — ma·li·cious·ly adverb"

It's EVIL BEHAVIOR! If you don't like being told the truth about yourselves and finding that it makes you ugly, then you shouldn't be maliciously lying to and about others.

No, the door didn't hit me on the way out, because I busted it down to get out there first!

Who are you? God? I don't think so! Well, Granite City, I'm sorry so many of your people indulge themselves in the participation of malicious conduct, of which is a prerequisite for condemnation. Truly I'm sorry that so many of you are on the fast track to hell!
