Defamation Per se
Some statements are so defamatory that they are considered defamation per se; and the plaintiff does not have to prove that the statements harmed his reputation or that the statements were false.
The classic examples of defamation per se are allegations of serious sexual misconduct; allegations of serious criminal misbehavior; or allegations that a person is afflicted with a loathsome disease.
Why do I write this? To get it out. So YOU can read it.
It’s happening in the real estate seo space. A little man has written heinous postings about an associate’s competitor and states that “it’s true” (as an excuse – as if it would matter) but fails to realize other truths, like the law. His ALLEGATION is the problem. If there’s a judgment IN EXISTENCE for the crimes he claims, then it’s a different story.
If I’m harassed by him or his associates I’ll post the full names and writings in context of who I’m mentioning.
This comes back to my real estate seo ugliness article, actually reinforces it.
The blog owner you wrote this on has deleted your smears, but because it’s #2 in the Greatest Real Estate Agent in the World contest and because it’s in your TARGET’S industry, I’M SURE MANY in his industry have already read it. Over 230 comments – with subscriptions to boot! You have libeled and distributed defaming comments about crimes to many. She deleted it for she’s obviously smarter than you are.
You aren’t clever, you’re stupid.
Your grudge, your sloppiness and your immaturity is engraved upon your name. Your “friends” (competition) in the industry allow you to do this, but the LAW supersedes your desire to re-define reality. It’s NOT about web 2.0 or 1.0, freedom or moderation – it’s about decency, honesty and THE LAW.
Any validity (now in question with many, hence worsening your problem) in your rant has NOTHING to do with what you have done.
I wouldn’t want to be you.
