Hey there,
I recently published a page that I would like an opinion on. I am new to the publishing side of the internet world and would like to know if a page i recently published crosses any lines of "internet etiquitte". The page does not have any offensive language and is not offensive in any way, but it is a "warning" about a vet clinic and i want to make sure I don't get my self in trouble...
Could i sticky a more experienced publisher the address of the page to give me your opinion.
thanks for any help, i would really appreciate it.

You'd probably need advice from a lawyer with experience in libel lawsuits more than you need advice from a webmaster. LoL

I don't actually name "names" on the page but you still may be right about the lawyer suggestion.
Would still appreciate some more insight from anyone with more experience than I.
thank you again to anyone that can help

Don't know your location, but in the US the truth is an affirmative defense against charges of libel or slander.

Still, if you don't have deep pockets the advice of an attorney is advised.

You dont need deep pockets for your attorney? can I have his name?

If in doubt TAKE IT OUT!

Thank you all for your suggestions, I appreciate it and am thankful for WebmasterWorld and the helpful people you find here.
I decided I did'nt want to chance any trouble so I made some of the references on the page a little more vague.
I underestimated how well the page would rank and was suprised to see the number of hits it got.

As a side note of possible interest, I submitted a "page removal" request to google and the page was removed from results within 2 hours.

Thanks again for your suggestions.
