Removing a post from a website

Dallas, TX |

A person I know posted false things about me on a website. After sometime, that person contacted the webmaster to have the posting removed, but the webmasters don't allow the content to be removed.

The website claims that once things are posted, then they won't remove it. What can be done in such a situation to have the posting deleted?

  1. This subject came up at a legal conference I attended recently. I do not have a "legal" solution to the problem, but I would recommend that if the website will not take down the original post, ask the website to post the request from the person who originally posted the false information along side the original message. At least this may have the effect of showing the public that the information was false, and the person has withdrawn the statements.
