Nonetheless, I see us focusing upon different aspects of it.That doesn't accurately represent my position.
We'll agree to disagree about the net value ofI see risks too; I just don't think they entail throwing the baby out with the bathwater and scrapping defamation convictions altogether.
I note that many posters on RF could be prosecuted
for violating such a law. Bad idea IMO.
I can't answer those questions.Thanks. That helps.
However, it seems excessively hard to win a defamation case considering that Musk publicly made the initial accusation (which he claimed was just an "insult"), doubled down on it by calling the diver a "child rapist" in an email, and also hired a "private investigator" (reportedly a convicted felon) to try to find anything against the diver:
Elon Musk reportedly hired a convicted felon with a shady past to investigate the British diver he once called a 'pedo'
An aide to Elon Musk hired a private investigator to look into the diver Musk called a 'pedo guy'
If such a case wasn't ruled in favor of the plaintiff, which case could be? What more evidence would be needed than the above?
