from Michael G <mikeysmail(at)inoutbox.com> to abuse(at)compsci.ca date Mon, Feb 16, 2009 at 9:00 PM subject Slander, Criminal allegations It has been brought to my attention by colleagues of mine that my name has been indexed on google linking to a blog on this website. After a quick google search of "michael gontier" I found said post as hit #7. The absurd comments contained within could be classified as nothing other than slanderous, if not criminal. My name is not one that is common so I am taking these accusations personally and I ask that they are removed immediately so that further action is not required. Thank-You in advance,
We agreed to remove Michael's last name from the post in question to be nice, however, we do not believe that we were in any way at fault. It is clearly stated that CompSci.ca, DWITE.ca, Tony and Dan are not responsible for the content of user's posts and/or comments on the site, and if there is any slander or libel (which there is not in this case) it would be the fault and responsibility of the posting user. Furthermore all content on CompSci.ca and DWITE.ca should be regarded as opinion, and we do not see how comments and posts can be taken as anything but opinion.

from Tony Targonski <tony.targonski(at)gmail.com> to mikeysmail(at)inoutbox.com date Wed, Feb 18, 2009 at 1:41 PM subject Re: Legal Threats signed-by gmail.com Michael, The legal threat page is per our policy. From your original email, where you've said: "I ask that they are removed IMMEDIATELY so that further action is not required."; I will interpret "further actions" as a legal threat. If you are this concerned about any new page with your name showing up on Google, you might be interested in starting a personal blog to secure the top results with your own content. The bottom line is that comments made by zeldamaster1230 are not libelous as they were not posted as "facts", nor were they made about you. As unique as you might think your name is, Facebook alone returns 3 matches on exact name search. -- Tony
