Hi guys. It's my first time posting here, please be gentle I'm a business owner and have a great business. Happy doing what I do. But with the wonderful world of the internet opinions can easily be voiced. As a business owner I'm happy to listen & read criticism, how else do we mend our mistakes & grow? Any business will tell you that there are those that you will never make happy & it's where I draw my question from. I have an issue with a forum in particular where it allows it's members to post slander & defamatory posts. The moderators are happy to sit back & watch & not act. The owner of the forum does even less. It got to the point where I was receiving abusive private messages, which were sent to the moderators & site owner. The individual informed the forum he planned to leave. Which actually received comments of encouragement to stay from the moderators. My questions are: What laws apply to forum site owners in regards to defamation, slander & harassment? Can individuals be open to legal action? As a business, is there any action legally that I can take to have such action ceased? Thanks, hopefully someone has some good news. This harassment has gone on for 2 years, it's time it stopped.
