So, the topic this week is … how do you feel about this issue? Who should be liable for a defamatory comment on the internet? Google? The website where the post was made? The poster? If you say poster, then explain to me how we are going to track them down … most people post anonymous – some loser hiding in his mother’s basement taking cheap shots at someone they are jealous of … someone that took their girl … someone that beat them in an election. Good luck getting a hosting website to help you. They don’t even store the ISP’s – it is easier for them to say, “We don’t keep that info” than to get involved in your headache/lawsuit. Should they be forced to? Should newspapers require you to sign in with a credit card or legit Facebook page before you comment? I think so. Shame on the Plain Dealer for having a forum comment section that is a nasty free for all. In their old TV forum, there were people that would say heinous, defamatory things about Dick Goddard. Really … who is sitting at their computer trashing Dick Goddard? Get a life!
