No - I’m suggesting people don’t defame others and break the law by making statements that fall into the category of libel or defamation - and if they choose to do so - then they accept the consequences.

Calling someone a criminal in a public forum without any charges having been filed or proven - is defamatory.  It’s pretty simple really - just - don’t do it

Are you suggesting that people have to shut up because they don't have the money to pay attorneys? Total nonsense!

This is not the spirit of this community.

Firstly – generally not a good idea to air such things on a public mailing list – that’s just common sense.

Secondly – there is a vast difference between a contradictory view – and calling someone a criminal when they have not been found guilty of any crime – the former is acceptable – the latter is defamatory.

Thirdly – right or wrong – win or lose – legal battles – can cost a hell of a lot of money – and generally are a good idea to avoid them when you can do so, lest you end up bankrupt

Dear Community,

So while enjoying the festive holidays, I got served with a seize and desist by counsels of you know who? Well email read "Le Heng" who I suppose they meant, Lu Heng.

Well ofcourse I resisted and the rational is simple imho.

How come Lu Heng is accusing me of defamation for statements made on AFRINIC specific public discussion mailinglists and forum ( https://afrinic.net/email/amp<https://afrinic.net/email/amp>):

As we all know, these public forums allow for contradictory discussions allowing Lu Heng and Cloud Innovation Ltd/Larus Limited to respond and provide their views and arguments.
