and do you REALLY think the police would be bothered about a ' small motorcycle ' forum , no real serious accusations have been thrown , if it's ' defamation ' by means of trolling your going to need to be a famous person before anyone would take it seriously , & the fact remains kamchat is a cock end , he is fat & he is boring , but about the other i dunno ??? , but like they say " there's no smoke without fire " , & i read that post fuzz .. i wouldnt be worried in the slightest so keep taking screenshots , your just wasting space on your memory card :wink::lol:

Police action

but that's the whole point weasel. Defamation isn't a criminal offence. It's a tort, a civil wrong, and as such can be pursued by the injured party if they can prove that any harm was done to their reputation.

first, the person must prove that the statement was false. Second, the person must prove that the statement caused harm. Third, the person must prove that the statement was made without adequate research into the truthfulness of the statement. These steps are for an ordinary citizen .

this is the us version ..

the list of  defense's against defamation / libel / slander is huge with the onus on the person making the claim ..

like i said , on a selective forum ie; this one i would doubt very much the authority's would bother

Correct weazel64 - what a load of old bulloney

Defamation against one of a multitude of a cocks imaginary names.:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

 

Mind, he could bring his little band of bag-heads as witness.:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

 

But as amatuer lawyers they would be better litter pickers, stick with the day job guys.

I wouldn't be too

cock sure about police not bothering, you'll get too cocky at some point and it's game over.

The problem they will seek out is the operators of the site who are supposed to have moderators in place.

 

It's not a little motorbike forum either, it's a big one with advertisers.

Maybe it's time to target the advertisers with who and what they're products are linked too:shock:

Civil Law

which means the burden of proof is lower. "balance of probabilities" is the phrase you'll need.


Given that the unpleasant allegations have been committed to the screen (same as the written word) it will fall into the 'libel' area of common law.

Being common law, the police will be unconcerned (unless they decide to invoke any one of the many incitement laws), but a magistrate will only be concerned with 'has the allegation been made' and 'does it upset the victim / target' and thus decide on a suitable level of damages.

Personally I find many of the antics over the last couple of weeks quite offensive - not sure why they started in the first place so have erred on the side of not posting (MCN - this could directly affect you as I'm no longer as exposed to your advertisers).

Irrespective of the targets ability to withstand such unpleasantness, (cyber) bullying is bullying. It's engaged in by cowards.

Time for some individuals to get wise and grow up.

Mere vulgar abuse is an insult that is not necessarily defamatory because it is not intended to be taken literally or believed, or likely to cause real damage to a reputation.

& there your honour is the defences case , now prove intent ???? , fookin hard one to prove in ANY court of law

It's not "mere vulgar abuse" though, is it. You've accused someone of committing a particularly heinous crime. The fact that you can't tell the difference and that you appear to find accusations of child abuse amusing should worry everyone, including your families.

Innocent until proven guilty, so they say. Unless you have evidence (and you clearly don't) you'd be wise to shut up.
