Defamation occurs when somone writes something that is injueous to the other person's reputation. But there are other forms of defamation that i am also writing about here.
Cruel statements about another person are defaming. Hatefull statements are also defaming. Accusations if infidelity are defaming. attributing a loathsome disease to someone is defaming. Calling someone a manic-depressive is defaming. All of these and moe that i hav not finished writing about yet are contingent upon them being false or without privlege. Some jurisdictions do not accept truth as a defense if the statement was made with malice. Mlost of these are not in the US.
You had asked me for examples that have been written concerning me. One of the most horrible defaming statements ever made to me in my life was by you when you wrote, Lou, you are a nasty piece of work. I asked you to clarify and you did not. the phrase is distinctly British comming from the antisemitic England after 1290 when the jews were expelled by the king from England. The jews were later falsely portryed by Shakespeare in "The merchant of Venice, the person named Shylock. Shakespears himself used the phrase in Hamlet, I belive. The piece of work is referring in that time to something made. A human that was called a nasty piece of work was being called a human that god made that was nasty. You called me that on this publuic forum after you defamed me in a previous post and you were still allowed to continue posting. You also wrote that my spelling was awfull. That is one of the most cruel statements made to me in my life for I have explained many times hear that I have a rare nerological condition that impairs me to write or spell correctly. It is not my fault and I can do nothing about it ever, for thecondition is permanant. You have mad eother defaming statement about me and they are in the archives. As far as others defaming me, that is another story.
