If a lawsuit is filed, the plantiffs could subpoena posting. private message and registration information of members.

I would suggest if you posted anything on that website that is in violation of Lowe's Code of Ethics or Social Media policy, that you go back and delete it immediately.

Also, if you registered any identifying information like a store email address, that you change that to another that would not identify you to Lowe's.

If you ever copied/pasted any copyrighted news story or image/video etc, that you go back and delete it immediately.

Unfortunately if this lawsuit goes forward almost any information relating to the violation of the website host policies or laws could be subpoenaed by the plantiffs.

There will be an attempt to settle this matter with the website owner before the suit is filed in Federal Court, however if this cannot be resolved, then the plantiffs intend to proceed with the lawsuit, which could drag innocent parties into the matter.
