Hal - I thought you might be interested in the following important court decision:
Calif. court says bloggers can't be sued
State's Supreme Court said a federal law gives immunity from libel suits

Sounds like you, as the sponser of the bulliten board are protected as well

Thanks, I read that this morning. With what little law expertise I have I do know that a ruling in a California court does not automatically become the precedent everywhere. So we will just have to see how it filters out to other cases.

But at least its a start.

If you read the ruling carefully, it does not give broad protection to all posters. It only protects individuals who post the written or spoken words of others. If I post something inflamatory or libelous that was said or written by you, I am protected. You are still liable and can be sued. If I post inflamatory or libelous thoughts about somebody, then I am liable.
