I took a look at the postings. Basically, the first poster mentions a certain bar and more or less admits to having an affair with the owner. The second post berates the OP for being so stupid, given the reputation for bar owners in that area. The third says the bar owner has ruined the lives of other guys (and may be the wife or ex-wife of the OP).
The messages are 1-2 years old and certainly tamer than others I've seen. Oh, the person writing to me hasn't ever denied anything in the posts, just that they're hurting her reputation. :)
Usually we just delete posts that are blatently offensive or nothing but rants. These don't really cross the line. I'm debating whether to suggest she register and write her own rebuttal if she feels that strongly about it. Given the age of the posts, I don't think it's that likely it would spawn a flame war, although her rebuttal may bring some other jilted lovers out of the woodwork. I suppose I could always delete the thread later on if things get out of hand.
So, what are your votes for:
A) Delete the thread
B) Suggest she write a rebuttal
C) Say it's against our policy to remove someone else's posts and hope she gives up and goes away

Like I said, she's never denied anything in the post was false. And knowing the area and the types of people who own bars there, that type of behavior is far from uncommon.
