Is this a real issue on Topix? Invasion of privacy? Illegal electronic surveillance? Intrusion on Freedom of Speech?
Think it happens on here, for real?

I recall numerous lawsuits being filed against John Does and Topix for statements posted on here...the owners of that barge restaurant over in Guyandirtte (can't remember the name, don't give a damn) filed one b/c ppl on here said things about their business that they felt were false. I don't know the outcomes of any of them though.

And you don't think anything posted on here could be proven untrue, huh? I believe the allegations against Schooner's (thanks seeker) was that they were bankrupt, or filing for bankruptcy. Pretty easy to prove or disprove that.

Perhaps, in the case of schooners' it can easily be proven. Something like that is in black and white. But most of the posts I see that you could consider defamation refer to character, ethics, or caliber. Those are more qualitative characteristics and are measured differently by everyone. Those are difficult to actually prove untrue. In order words: it's bullshit. This is my opinion I'm not sure though.

You have to prove damages as well in these cases. Though a thought for some may be that just filing the suit is benefit enough in that it may scare those making the statements enough to stop.
