Now that I have read this thread I realise that the title of it was not:
"Those Who Use PEDals And Not Just Cleats..."
Can I have two minutes 45 seconds of my life back please?

No, apparently.

I scoured the "Defamatory posts - some guidelines" thread several times assuming it offered tips on slagging people off...

These all have very specific legal meanings. They are different.

To demonstrate what i was saying above about it being a civil matter...

This might end up as an action for misrepresentation in contract or as an action in the tort of deceit. One or the other. Not both. The burden of proof is on the claimant in both instances. Remedies in contract would be rescission and/or damages whilst in tort it would be damages.

(please correct me if i'm wrong. I'm only a student and i'm aware there may be practising legal pro's on here)


Largely correct, but it depends on contract type.
