    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.

    I've been using the forums for a couple of years now and have always found them interesting and informative as well as often very helpful. I usually search for answers to my questions in existing threads, however there doesn't appear to be a quick and easy way of doing this, so I end up scanning through...

    Please avoid posting in threads more than 6 months old, and even then post only if you have something of significant value to add. Old threads can contain legally out of date advice.

    Thanks moderators I appreciate the clarity and the factors you consider ( very reasonable )
    Its a shame that people who are courteous and knowledgeable such as Lawcruncher should suffer abuse.

    I was recently, quite rightly, criticised by the moderator for trying to exceed my role on the forum. The moderation was fair, reasonable and balanced. I was disappointed to be labelled a troll. Something I've always associated with foul and aggressive internet use. I've always tried to promote...

    Pretty shoddy treatment indeed but try posting about the possibility of a house price rise on the anti-landlord website you're a member of.

    I pretty much go with the definition that Mrs Mug posted above, so when I see someone accusing another forum member of ‘trolling’ then that is likely to attract my attention in a negative way for the person making the accusation.

    If I see a new member posting such an accusation openly...

    Thanks. Perhaps criticising some of the manner of expression used could be defined as off-topic. In that case, guilty, but I don't accept I've done any else.
