Libellous posts

Just a thought after the recent exchange, below...

Can a troll like Oh Dear (an anonymous forum poster) ever complain they've been the victim of libel?

Surely you can not complain that your reputation has been damaged if no-one knows who you are.

The traditional definition of a forum Troll is, - one who anonymously/or as an impostor posts in a manner deliberately intended to cause trouble/insult/ridicule etc. As far as I'm concerned, that individual has forfeited any rights to consideration by those on the receiving end of the trolls malicious output. I realise the meaning of the term 'Trolling' has changed over the years and is now seen as a descriptive for a certain type of forum behaviour even by recognised individuals.

For the individual you mention Rex, I would suggest they seriously reconsider their anonymity, because they could be in danger of being considered by some in our community to fall into that definition I mention above. A contentious but known individual is one thing a community like ours will accept/police, a Troll is not acceptable.

Rex,interesting musings. A further ponder: if someone using anonymity but is know to several regular users to the site does that alter her status under defamation laws?

Krinky,I am not unknown to my friends on this forum, I shall post as oh dear when I can be bothered. I might be taking it the wrong way but the kind advice of a fellow poster means as when I do post it will be as oh dear.

The good news as my temporary transfer to Gatwick has finished I shall be based at London City meaning visits to Ks again. Another voice to the 'hoof it forward club'

Then you aren't a Troll by anybody's definition, personally I've never thought of you in that way. The Royal Enclosure welcomes all so long as the dress code is observed- no Womble gear on display, and wipe yer feet, say hi if you feel like it.

Me and Taimour observed all of these rules, yet last time we were there, you booed him away. I don't think the royal enclosure is the welcoming bastion of all things Ks that you profess it to be.

Think you may find its a bit of a joke to many but you can sit where you want with who you want although the main support with much volume comes from behind the goal.
Think the players know where the main support comes from but wouldnt have a go at anyone who comes to support.

Mostly a very widely shared opinion. But also an element of fact as you wouldn't be able to go to court under the name 'oh dear'.

Surely that depends on the people 'defaming' you knowing who you are?

Defaming 'oh dear' the anonymous internet troll (not my words) is about as legally akin to hurling abuse at a willow tree. Unless you claim 'oh dear' as an actual persona you use in more than just t'internet.

Defaming 'insert actual name here' is a different story.
