You pedophiles shouldn't run around falsely accusing your betters of your own stupidity.

This convoluted sentence should be reason enough to convince A2kers not to engage in any discussion with you
Calling jcboy a pedophile absolutely cements your reputation as an insensitive moron

This orally idiot it too ignorant to realize pedophilia is a crime and accusing someone of a crime is actionable but its probably not worth the time or money to go after his ass, I mean what am I going to do with a hut on a 6000 sq ft lot with no running water and only a generator for electricity in Kentucky?

Defamation Law: The Basics

Defamation Law: The Basics

There is always a delicate balance between one person's right to freedom of speech and another's right to protect their good name. It is often difficult to know which personal remarks are proper and which run afoul of defamation law.

The term "defamation" is an all-encompassing term that covers any statement that hurts someone's reputation. If the statement is made in writing and published, the defamation is called "libel." If the hurtful statement is spoken, the statement is "slander." The government can't imprison someone for making a defamatory statement since it is not a crime. Instead, defamation is considered to be a civil wrong, or a tort. A person that has suffered a defamatory statement may sue the person that made the statement under defamation law.

Defamation law, for as long as it has been in existence in the United States, has had to walk a fine line between the right to freedom of speech and the right of a person to avoid defamation. On one hand, people should be free to talk about their experiences in a truthful manner without fear of a lawsuit if they say something mean, but true, about someone else. On the other hand, people have a right to not have false statements made that will damage their reputation. Discourse is essential to a free society, and the more open and honest the discourse, the better for society.

Elements of a Defamation Lawsuit

Defamation law changes as you cross state borders, but there are normally some accepted standards that make laws similar no matter where you are. If you think that you have been the victim of some defamatory statement, whether slander or libel, then you will need to file a lawsuit in order to recover. Generally speaking, in order to win your lawsuit, you must show that:

Someone made a statement;
that statement was published;
