Let me save you a ton of money and even more time that you won't be able to get back. Two years ago someone posted topic after topic on here slandering me, saying things that were absolutely false and dangerous to me and my children. I spoke with three different lawyers- two from here and one from Huntington. I was promised the same thing, and paid thousands of dollars to two of them, and in the end was out of luck. The third lawyer was one of the best around, and he told me the best I could do was find out who it was (on my own, mind you) and serve with with a cease and desist letter. If they continued from there, we may be able to follow up. Key word being may.

I ended up setting up a google alert using my name as well as my children's. I get emails and texts anytime my name is used, as well as my children's. I then send Topix a formal email telling them they must remove their post from the site or I will file a suit against them. They have removed each and every one. You have to report the post and send the letter from there.

I'm just trying to save you time and money and tell you my experience. I fought for almost a year and a half to get nowhere. I hope you don't go through the same thing, and just become proactive on where and how your name is used on the Internet. We can control it on our own.

I agree. Unfortunetly, the way Topix has it set up, and thanks to WV laws, one would have to continue posting these things after a cease and desist letter is sent. Even then, it is a very difficult process, if it is successful at all. It would take many years, much money, and for everyone involved to participate fully. At this point, we do not have that in WV.

Best thing to do is ignore topix i try not to but a year ago had someone tell me I was on there and now I check every so often. I came to realize the low life's that crave this and if I worry about it to much I become like them so smile and go on and don't worry about this crap

Everyone has the god given right to be stupid but there are idiots in Point Pleasant who are abusing the privilege. This is what inbreeding causes, a bunch of pinheaded morons who get their jopllies making up lie on their fellow man. If you know who they are contact the Huntington Chapter of our sister organization Outlaws MC. For a lot less than a lawyer will charge they will having a meaningful conversation with with the offender. If the results arn't fruitfull a follow up visit is free.

Suing someone is very expensive (5,000-10,000 to get started plus attorney gets around 40% of the lawsuit. You just don't walk in and say I want to sue someone. U have to proof and lots of cash. Plus,u can't get blood out of a turnip. By the way, the welfare scum posting the worst stuff on here will probably get represented for free.

Jail time for posting on topix? that's a new one! Well, let's let all the murders and drug dealers out and crack down on Topix Abusers. Fill up the jails and prisons with them.

Just a little info. My friend has a daughter with down syndrome. A few young boys started a thread about her. The father took action and got a lawyer. The ip address was given up by topix. The boys were caught the ring leader was 21 and served a week in jail and 1 year probation and community service. About a month later the dad ran into the boy at Wendy's and beat him very badly almost killed him. The father is currently in jail for a Few charges stemming from beating the kid. The punk said some nasty things about his daughter I would've done the same thing. Last I heard the kid has nightmares everynight from taking his a$$ beating. This all took place in a small town near sutton wv.

to receive damages for libel or slander, you must prove beyond a preponderance of the evidence that A. the statement in question was clearly made about you, B. that statement is absolutely false and C. you were actually damaged by that statement.
good luck with that.
Sorry, Charlie--but you left out a few details: If you have not fully proven your contention, then you may take what evidence you've gathered to the sheriff of your county. He is legally obligated to submit said evidence to the County Clerk by the following Tuesday. If he fails to do same, you are entitled to $500.00 in legal tender--due two weeks from the day you filed the original complaing. If you do not receive your money within this time frame, you may pursue your case with the defense attorney of your county. He is obligated by law to apologize to you and immediately pay you no less than $1000.00 and no more than $5000.00. If he fails to do this within a week of the following Tuesday, then you have still other recourses. Let me know how it goes.
