I run a groups/forums site that is open for all and covers a bunch of interests, similar to Google Groups. Now apparently I have started to receive several "I will sue you" mails from people in Euro countries who claim their name/company is defamed. Obviously it is some one who was either not happy with the service or is just trolling around, competitor whatever.
My concern is that me being a resident of another country, can I be sued by these random people. What should I write to these people?
I usually delete stuff, but its increasing exponentially. I delete if someone says that "hey thats my real name and address someone posted there and says I sell drugs", sure i'll delete it , it's a real threat.
How do admins deal with this kind of situation, I am sure FB and Twitter then must have more lawyers than coders ? P.S. I know this is not a server fault issue. But I am not a lawyer, I am DevOps :(
