so this girl said that she called the cops and they are getting ip addresses and going to get us for slander (even though I just spoke the truth) I thought slander was a civil defence. IDK can u be arrested if someone says what you say on here is slander?

The only way the cops would even get the IP address is if it was a direct threat, and even then... probably not.

IP addresses that you and I see are very vague... they will show a general area (which could be a hundred or more miles away). It actually takes time a bit of research for a company to give an exact location.

No, the cops will not arrest you.
It costs lots of money to try to have someone sued for slander.
THEN
You HAVE to prove it hurt you in some way such as a job loss etc.
Costs of having the posts subpoenaed, then the person's computer hard drive taken by a warrant, then the court case which is next to impossible to prove slander. It's not easy or cheap to do.

There are lots of things to deal with, WiFi, library computers, laptops that search for the strongest signal to connect, multiple people using the same computer, work computers. Just to name a few.

It all depends on the situation. If there is something other than stuff wrote on the computer and there is more to it, then yes, they can and will do something.

Oh, maybe "the girl" is trying to get you guys for menacing, harrassment or something like that. You can be arrested for that. Especially if you have already been in trouble for that. Oh, and you dont have to put your real name on here but it is easy to prove who you are when you only talk about stuff that only you and the "girl" know. By the way, it is an ISP #. lol It is easy to obtain that information because the cop can go to the prosicuter and get a supena to get that information.
