Libel Reminder / Use of Main Board Rules / Useful Links

Recommended Posts

It seems as though I need to issue yet another reminder about posting libellous or potentially libellous content on the forum.


The libel law in the UK is very heavily weighted in favour of the target of the defaming comments, and as far as posts on internet message boards are concerned, any such claim for libel could be levied against not just the individual who posted the original comments, but also anybody who quotes them, anybody responsible for moderating the site and indeed the company who provide the hosting for the site.


As such, libellous comments WILL be deleted, without fail. Repetition of the libel from this point onwards WILL result in the appropriate sanctions. I suggest re-reading the forum rules if you are still unclear.


Given the timing of my post here, I'm sure it's fairly obvious which particular story I'm referring to.

If anyone knows of any others (or if I've messed up and included an imposter) post them and I'll update the list.


Obviously Twitter is public domain, and all this information was already available for those looking for it, but before we get any problems, I ask you to please treat this information with respect.

I think a vast number of posters have forgotten this a football forum and not a playground. Having waded through a few threads in recent days and comparing to a year or so ago it appears it has got systematically worse.


So please let bygones be bygones, respond to the post not the poster, ignore those you don't want to see content from etc.


Going forward I personally be applying the forums rules to the letter which will involve infractions and bans. Hopefully a bit of football discussion will break out as a result.
