Social media or IRL SHOULDN'T matter tho, this is the internet so it's okay attitude some people have smh I mean as bad as just insulting people just to insult is it's quite different to be calling people rapists, and child molesters whether it's said in person or over a computer
Crap its incomplete. Lible is a dishonest WRITTEN statement, Defamation is a dishonest SPOKEN statement.
Close enough, but Defamation can be written or spoken, libel is written, slander is spoken

And a link that explains further, but you have it right
Right! Calling someone stupid or ugly or snowflake, insult... Telling people they're pedophiles or they like raping women and children (yes saw a female user say that to a guy on here) is crossing that line... And for what, because you disagree... Insults bad enough, but there's certain lines you shouldn't cross, even if it's "just the internet"
"Some states have laws that automatically make certain statements defamation. Any false statement that a person has committed a serious crime"
Obviously, there's no such law in Washington, DC LOL
Not necessarily this could explain..."If the person being defamed is a private citizen and not a celebrity or public figure, defamation can also be proven when the statement was made with negligence as to determining its truth (the person speaking should have known it was false or should have questioned it). This means it is easier to prove defamation when you are a private citizen. There is a higher standard required if you are a public figure"
Accusing people of being a rapist or a pedophile is crossing over the line of just insult and people should know that either you do it in person or writing... Disagreeing with someone is no reason to throw false accusations that are illegal crimes at someone.
*whether not either
doesn't need to be an illegal offense. just calling "bullshit" on someone can be an insult or a slander or both.
Insulting someone is one thing but accusing someone of being a rapist, pedophile, or child molester just because you disagree with their opinion is not only stupid AF, it crosses the line over from just an insult
@Brainsbeforebeauty... Those 3 types of slanderous accusations , do certainly cross the line. A thankfully inactive here , insanely man hating former user Astorania or something , ( typical of those types anyway ) accused me of being a pedo... my daughter happened to read the comment... and replied herself !! ... this Ass-toria or whatever , had the nerve to report my daughters & my own responses. All that hate burns up the hater , they fail to see that. Perfect feminist leadership material !!
@FatherJack some stupid female just did the same to me... People need to just quit it stupid, pretty insults while childish and unnecessary are one thing, but when you start accusing people of acts that are criminal unfounded just because they're disagreeing with you, that is unacceptable... People taking this "it's the internet, it's ok" attitude way too far
Would serve them right if they received bodily harm too... they would in the real world ! Most are cowards anyway & would not dare in real life.
@FatherJack right; cowards
I never seen you even insult someone on here, much less be slanderous
@Brainsbeforebeauty Yeah, I'm pretty cool
Of course you are! I knew that already 🙂👍
Yes I do!!
So there, answered yours, so answer mine 🙂
And whats the difference between desire and obsession?
You replied to my question and questions that don't even pertain to the question at hand
*with not and
Do you think this feeling can last forever like forever ever forever ever forever ever?
Again, the point of your questions 🤔🤔🤷🏼♀️ what does any of that have to do with this question... Here to refresh your memory:Do You Know The Difference Between Insult, Defamation, Libel And Slander?
I know you do 🙂👍
👍👍 more people should learn the difference
You're right of course, Brain, more should learn the difference.They should also learn the difference between "assault" (a threat), and "battery" (carrying out the threat by actually touching or attacking someone). To complicate things, many municipalities have passed laws that allow the terms to be used interchangeably. but I digress - - - - - -I DO question, however, line 5-6 of the pull quote from legalzoom.Slander is a spoken statement but libel is typically referring to the published word, not as "either" as explained in line 5-6.
