The right people can help you. You just have to find them. What did they say? If it wasn't a threat or actionable libel and IF they aren't on all the free wifis or anonymous proxys that is. Some of the regulars have had some success without going through the usual channels.

i dont believe it, with all the crap posted about cops, people would be scared to post if they thought it could be traced, if cops cant find out then who can.

Some aren't scared to post anything at all. Unless they commit some crime, any cop that show up at their door running is mouth got there illegally. That's bad for the cop. If you suspect abuse you can file a complaint and Foia your entry into the state database and check who is scoping you also. It's free and it's a charge if someone logs in with their # and looks at you and later cannot explain or justify it. Not all cops would do such trivial crap but cops have lost their jobs over this. take a stab at how I know.

as easy as it takes to get a court order, which unless there is evidence of a crime of threats to commit a crime, you will not get any court order to get these records from Topix. Basically, you're shit out of luck.

Even with court orders topix takes time to show it to their lawyers and give the information. Also some people post from annonymnous proxys so its chancy.

Let me guess, someone posted something about you and you can't take it.....must be what they posted was true, again, remember it's not slander if it's TRUE!

Its not just Topix. Even if you manage to get a subpoena that gets Topix to turn over the information, you still would have to then get another subpoena for the ISP of the person to get their actual IP location. Even then it would only work if they posted from their own personal real connection without tapping into WiFi or rerouting it.Then unless you plan on physically attacking them and getting yourself arrested or worse, all you can do is take them to court, which would be a long drawn out process you likely couldn't win. Plus getting those subpoenas and going to court will require a lawyer who will charge you a good chunk of change.
Unless a crime has been committed, and libel is not a criminal act in NY state, you have almost no chance of tracking someone down.

correct. Unless a crime is committed, its tough. There are back channels and traps that can be used. Look online.
