Last year I was talking to a Senior Partner at Mallesons about defamation and forums etc, and she made some interesting points.

Just dug up an old email, and it contained this sage advice:

“That’s why I rarely recommend suing, because the protagonists are fighting out (and perpetuating) something which everyone has forgotten long ago.

In terms of looking forward, if you try to regard this as a ‘game’, whereby you tactically want to ensure your opponent is neutralised and comes off looking worse than you, that might help”.
