Solved Members being harassed, information given out

Post by RJBMama on January 15th 2011, 6:09 pm

I'm just trying to confirm something.
Lately, a forum that I am a member of has been getting threats of lawsuits for libel (it is a gossip forum, some of the conversations can get mean). While I know the law, I realize that threats like that are pretty empty and made to scare the members of the forum.

However, the following post led me here:
"Actually it was rather easy with the cooperation of forumotion.com the host owners of this free site that have been getting quite a number of complaints.

And now that the FBI has all the IP numbers in relation to your posts, enjoy your subpeona."

This is in regards to that person posting personal information of some minor (under 18) members of our site and how they got that information. Basically, they are claiming that forumotion has given them the members' ip addresses. I would like to confirm the truth of this statement.

I'm not worried, but a lot of younger members are very frightened for their own security and considering the blame has been pointed on this website, I thought that I would get to the bottom of it for their sakes.

If this needs to be somewhere else, please let me know. I tried doing a search, but came up short. Thank you in advance.

I'm not really sure what to say to this topic. We don't give out peoples information unless required by law. All of this sounds odd to me and just to mess with you.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
