Dealing With Forum Abuse

Very often people encounter content posted on a forum that they disagree with, take offense to or believe infringes on copyrights. We've collected this listing of Frequently Asked Questions to help you determine your best course of action. Please read this page before contacting us with a complaint, as many questions will be answered below.

"What's the fastest way to get results?"
The first rule in dealing with forum abuse is keeping a level head and being civil. Firing off an email threatening litigation and throwing around insults will only galvanize them against you. Always make the first step a polite notice indicating the nature of your complaint and a polite request for resolution. If this message is ignored, then proceed accordingly. Contact the Webmaster, or perhaps have your lawyer send a proper cease and desist letter. Keep in mind though - don't lose your cool. More often than not, the slight is unintended, and can readily be resolved.

"Who should I contact with my complaint?"
The first person you should contact is the Webmaster of the this forum. Register on the forum, and send them an email or personal message from the Contact Us page.

"They are posting my copyrighted material, how do I stop them?"
Please simply contact us using the Contact Us page.

"How can I get the personal contact information or IP address for a user on a forum?"
In short, you can't. You really only have two ways - the first is to ask the member for their contact information, the second is to take the complaint to a court of law, and have a court order issued to collect the information. The reason for this is that in most countries, privacy legislation prevents the website owner from sharing that information with you.
