:tazz: It is a long story (I shared a bit of it with Kat,) but I just realized that some girl I know has posted a ton of offensive spam-like content on me on another forum.


I threatened if it wasn't removed I would take action. Since you guys are so good with lawsuit stuff, what can I do to get her in trouble. It shows her hostname and her location I think, and her name so I have proof.


Thanks all!

Have you asked a moderator or admin to remove it?

Yes, in the message I said "...AND IF THIS DOES NOT GET REMOVED IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS BY A MODERATOR OR KAYLA HERSELF, I WILL TAKE ACTION."

It really depends on the contents of the message, as to what action you can take against this girl. And threatening the mods/admins probably wasn't the best way to go about it. I would wager that they would have been happy to remove it had you simply requested it. What sort of spam-like information did "Kayla" post?

It might not make sense--as this isn't her FIRST offense and there's a long story behind it, but I defended her from this other mean member, but she didn't like it and she said:

[removed]

I don't believe that anyone at this site would want to be involved in "getting people in trouble" at other sites. I would suggest that if the poster of the "offensive spam-like content on you" won't remove the info in the post, then you must approach the Administrators of the site and put your case forward to them to have the content removed. If after contacting the Administrators at the other site and they still won't remove the content, and it still offends you, then I would suggest talking to a person in the legal profession to see what avenues are available to you.

I don't believe anyone at this site could or would make legal assumptions on your behalf unless qualified to do so.
