Interesting story..think this may have been already posted once.

Of course you have the right to sue a slanderer. That has already been proven as a fact. As far as Topix being banned, I'm still on the fence. They have the ability, IMHO to police some of the garbage posts we see on this site. But for some reason they choose not to.

But as far as one person posting entirely hearsay on another person, that is entirely unproven and not fact?

Good luck, and get yourself a good lawyer. Time to back your mouth up. Topix is not to blame for sheer stupidity. Choose your words carefully when posting.

get a lawyer. topix will happily provide you with an ip address so you can attach a name to the person posting. they will take down the posts as well. topix won't hesitate for a second to give up the identity of someone using slanderous statements. something sadly not many people apparently realize

How do you find out who post things? I was trashed on this site by a guy that has a court portection order against him. No of the things was true. I have two teenagers that doesn't need to are the things that was said.

As far as getting their IP address? As the post above you stated, you have to get a lawyer. I'm not positive if you can without actually suing the offender(s). Here is basically how it works as far as I understand it:

When you acquire a lawyer, the lawyer will issue subpoenas to the website Topix, requesting the persons (or defendants if you have to sue) IP address. Then once the IP address is acquired, a subpoena will be sent to their internet provider. Once the name is established then a lawsuit can proceed. But whether or not you can carry out this process without actually suing someone, I'm not sure. Either way, you have to get a lawyer.
