My question involves defamation in the state of: California
I have been posting on a website. Another member of the community made a disparaging post. He took bits and pieces of previous things I had said over a period of years, put them together to present me as this super negative person. Its not that I did not say these things in years past, but the way they were pieced together showed me unfavorably and created an untrue impression.
Complained and complained and complained to moderations but they refused to remove offensive post. Further complained that I would take legal action and they banned me from site forever for this reason.
My concern is that my personal profile is still on the site identifying who I am, along with this offending post. Additionally, the posts all indicated BANNED on them.
I still want this offensive post removed as well as any information that personally identifies me. I have no interest otherwise in being involved on this site. Problem is, this is a small community and BANNING without any explanation does not present me favorably either.
What can I or anyone do? Thanks.
