What can you do about slander and harrassment?Page 1 of 1    
You could look into a defamtion of character lawsuit. If the statements were made in malice or reckless disregard then that is the basic basis of a slander/libel suit. The burden of proof, obviously, would fall on you if you go this route.

If it isn't that important to you, then I'd just lose the guy and all his groupies. Block them from your email, report them to mods of whatever site they use, and keep track of all contact they make after that using their message system (PoF for example, probably wont care if they send you ugly messages via Yahoo. But PoF may care, if they send ugly messages via PoF mail...). This route is pretty much just blocking them from being able to contact you. If they get around these blocks; that may constitute Harassment if it's done repeatedly.

In the long run, it's pretty much do nothing; or do everything (lawsuits, blocks, etc); to get results.

Some men do all kinds of stupid things, that don't make sense. I got one like that next door. So they are indeed out there. Just be glad he don't live next door to you. I haven't spooken to him in three years, and yet he goes out of his way to cause me a proublem. When you learn how to make them go away, and it works, let me know.

those are legal terms
and this implies legal help...
find a lawyer but keep in mind
these are CIVIL and not criminal
things...
and most lawyers want at least a 10,000
retainer fee to begin a civil lawsuit.

How about someone who DOGS every post that a particular person Makes . . ???
The Topic doesn't Matter . .
He's _Always_ got a snappy come-back or dirty name to toss back . . !!!
AND . . He's Impervious to Discipline, too . . !!!

"I was there when no one else was." Big clue here. Users are unbelievably devious. Like you I've helped loads of down and out folks in my life. When I finally got tired of saveing there sorry @sses things changed a lot. I was bad mouthed to no end. Lied about a lot. Users somehow feel that the world owes them. And lord help you if you ever let them down. This is true with both men and women. I've met very few folks in life that only take what they need and are grateful for that. I quit helping anyone for anything. Except for my 3 kids. And one of them are made of the above stuff so he is now out of my life. Its a f*cked up world for sure. When you get tired of being used you will stop.
