Defamation on a Complaint Website – best practice.
I know of only ONE very effective way to deal with defamation on a Complaint Website.
Most people believe that if you focus on removing the defamatory comments from a Complaint Site the problem will somehow get resolved.
The exact opposite is true. Very often the focus on the Complaint Site invites more defamation problems. You get a reply to your reply and other people who you never even heard of are now making further accusations about you. You don’t want that!
This is my advice and you can ignore this advice at your own peril:
Instead of focusing on the removal of the web pages that contain the defamatory comments about you, you address any issues raised in them but on your own territory.
Here is an example of what I mean:
A few years back when I was faced with almost an identical problem in retaliation to posts listed on a Complaint Site I wrote a blog post, talking about
what happens to your life when people defame you on the internet, giving my own personal story as an example setting the facts right and even taking responsibility for my own mistakes. Read more on Internet Defamation Problems

We used to call them ‘The Complaints Barons’ because they were running websites dedicated to complaints/defamation so that those people defamed have no choice but to ‘hire’ the ‘Barons’ services to ‘mediate’ ‘moderate’ and ‘facilitate’ the successful removal of the defamatory content from their websites. You basically have to pay for protection. If you pay extra, they might also ‘protect’ you from future negative posts.
Internet defamation is used by owners of such websites to blackmail business owners as well as their defamation attorneys, says defamation lawyer Yair Cohen.. …READ MORE on Internet Law Expert blog
Internet trolling is no longer part of a sub-culture. Online bullying of adults and children is soon to reach an ‘epidemic’ level, because no one is around to enforce any rules.
After the conviction of Sean Duffy at Reading Magistrates’ Court in September 2011, I was hopeful that his prosecution and conviction would deter others from harassing innocent members of the public on the internet.
Unfortunately I was wrong. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it would be difficult to argue that the conviction of Sean Duffy has made any significant impact on the numbers of internet trolling cases in the UK. What we have experienced in the past 5 months since the conviction, is an intensification of a serious social problem, involving both adults and children in the role of online bullies. A radical solution will soon be required.

Can Stalking Bill Stop Increase In Internet Stalking, Online Harassment and Social Networking Bullying?

Just as with the case of the London Rioters, once the internet anarchists realise….Read More on the new Stalking Bill

This latest prosecution of Sean Duffy at Reading Magistrates’ Court may signal the beginning of a new line of prosecution by the police of internet related offences, which will be great news to tens of thousands of UK victims of internet defamation and abuse, and in particular to those vulnerable victims who are not in a financial position to be able to afford expensive civil proceedings.
In a first case of its kind, Magistrates’ have jailed a man who posted abusive images to online memorials dedicated to dead children. The man was jailed for 18 weeks and was banned from participating in social networking for a period of five years.
At Court, Sean Duffy, 25 from Reading, admitted to posting images on Facebook…
