My question involves defamation in the state of: NY
I belong to an online garage sale group on Facebook. Whenever I post things I am selling, there's one person that posts derogatory comments on my items, e.g., "She asks too much for her stuff and won't budge on the prices." or "She's just selling junk." I casually know him and he is a local antique dealer/collector. I have something he want's very badly, but he will not pay me a fair market price. I will not sell it to him unless he does. It was after my refusal that this behavior began. I have reported him to FB in general, and also the specific group administrators, but they have done nothing. My plaint is that if someone sees these remarks, I may lose customers because if it.
