    Avoid potential libel in LandlordZONE posts

    Can I remind members that identifying individuals and organisations by name on public forums is a dangerous practice - you are leaving yourself wide open to libel action.
    Defending yourself against a libel action can be horrendously expensive, whether you are found guilty or not.
    We already have an example of a managing Agent taking such action.

    The standard browser will not connect to it, you get a "not secure site" message.

    I've put Firefox on the phone and that will connect.
    But I'm not keen on Firefox for android, it's nowhere near as good...

    I'm working on Firefox for android and have a few addons installed which has speeded things up.

    Might even make it the default if I can get it quicker than the standard browser.

    This one's much older than that, Android 4.1.2 on a Galaxy S3 mini.

    It just seems odd that the standard Android browser can't connect to here because its "not secure" when other browsers have no problem.

    I have had a tenant in my property since novemeber 2013 on a assured shorthold tenanancy.

    She’s payed 1100 PCM since then with 1100 deposit. I served her a section 13 notice around 12 months ago as all the other apartments are rented for 1300 PCM. She flatly...

    That's a good offer by moderator2.

    Personally, where I moderate I also have email notification of moderated posts turned off.
    There are just too many, which would swamp your email inbox.

    I do check everyday there by logging into the moderator control panel and looking...

    If people see a message that their post has been sent for moderation then please send me a PM and I will then receive an email notification. I do not receive notifications of moderated posts automatically, and would not want to since many moderated posts really are spam. Remember that the action to...

    I've used and written systems to detect spam, it is possible to make systems user friendly without compromising the security model. Though no system is 100% secure there is a level of tolerance
