      Zero Tolerance - Libel / Defamatory Postings

      Please note, that with immediate effect, any threads that are / could be potentially libel or defamatory will be removed without explanation.

      As a website, our primary aim is to help people, and not to be having to explain or defend a certain member's postings, via solicitors.

      If you have a beef with anybody or anything, please make sure that your thread or your post is done in such a manner as to be free from (or could potentially be classed as) libel.

      Any member found breaking these rules, will have their right to post on here immediately revoked, and their account banned - as well as their thread removed without any further warning.

      Fortunately the site does not seem to attract too many of this ilk. I can only recall a couple in the past 3 years. However the ones that have fallen into this category have imho been given a bit too much leeway. If their actions compromise the site or its owners in anyway then it should be dealt with immediately in the ways set out above. 99.9% of the members here would, again imho, have no problem with this or be worried about it effecting them.

      This has basically led to a lot of stress and worry for both me and Ged, Imagine the shock arriving home from work reading an email saying your going to be sued, this is something no one needs, and it is not what we wanted when we started this site, we wanted the site to be fun, helpful and just somewhere to chat about anything but now we have learned a lesson the hard way about what is acceptable and who is responsible.
      Please help us keep the site fun, friendly, informative and most of all still running.

      Well it's to be hoped the guy has deep pockets because it could cost him a lot of money for not much return.

      I hate people that sue over petty small things which are avoidable or just plain damn' stupid etc. etc. It makes me feel that we live in a country which is beginning to become more like America every day.

      Smithy, I agree.

      Re: Zero Tolerance - Libel / Defamatory Postings

      There was a thread a couple of weeks ago that had accusations flying about. It seemed to get OTT at the time.

      I wonder if it has anyting to do with that?
