    Libel or Cyberharassment

    Hello, if an ex cheated on me and I would like to make a website about him what are the things I can say about him that would not get me in trouble with the law for libel?
    He did take advantage of me and I know it would be best to tell the police and file an official rape report but these things are so hard to prove. But anyways, I would like to say that he took advantage of me, that doesn't necessarily imply rape does it?
    In any case, can I mention his name and then call him names or is that cyberbullying? This guy got me pregnant then left, can I mention that? I want people to specifically know who he is. In any case, I'm not going to publish any photos or anything, but am I still able to get into trouble for this? And if so how hard will it be for them to prove it was me?

    Libel Or Cyberharassment

    My advice is to just let it go and move on.

    If you put this website up, you cannot stop him from suing you for slander/libel/defamation.

    If what you write is true or clearly opinion, you will win that lawsuit.

    Which does not keep you from having to go through the time and expense of defending yourself in court.

    You're just stirring the pot, forget about him and move on. I only see trouble if you make a website about him.

    Yes.

    But again, it won't prevent you from being sued.
