Nice try, Selwonk, but guess whose name is all over the domain WhoIs records

But more seriously, I inadvertently put myself in this position a few years ago, trying to protect members of an MSN group from a 'very nice' individual who I knew to have been investigated for some very unsavoury activities. A couple of good on-line friends of mine had already been hurt through getting involved with the guy, and I knew he had to be stopped. He refused to go quietly, so I 'named and shamed' to protect other members of the group, and was threatened with libel proceedings for my trouble. I was lucky that the individual concerned never took it further, because as it happens the UK libel laws leave you guilty until proven innocent. The 'libelled' party has twelve months to make a case, so I'm in the clear now, but it was a pretty fraught time for me and those around me.

More waffle at great length here if you can be bothered:
