      I would like to make it clear that, despite the opinions of many others that I have heard expressed with great vehemence, I have no evidence whatsoever to confirm whether or not Mr Scott McGleish might be a wanker.
      So by calling Joey Barton, an alleged knuckle dragger, would be out of order?

      The first time? How many times have you been sued for libel?
      Twice. Neither went to court

      The first time, the plaintiff backed down; second time, we did (although our story was actually true, the managing director got cold feet - we'd have won if she'd toughed it out).

      There some editors who take the view that if a journalist hasn't been sued for libel at least once, he/she isn't good enough.

      Wise words indeed although in this case the fragrant( flagrant shurely ? ) Miss Hopkins was asked to apologize and given a chance to avoid this action but then ramped up her vitriol !
      And this is very much taken into account, courts don't like being asked to adjudicate on something that could have been settled.

      The court will also take into account any action to mitigate a defamatory article (removal, early apology etc). It may still leave you facing damages but they'll probably be less

      I removed myself from Twitter a few weeks ago because of my complete inability to censor myself when I've had a drink.
      If you've had a few shandys it's best to take yourself to the Argus comments section. You'll be seen as one of the more informed commentators.
      I've lost my way. If anyone should find it, do return it quickly. I should imagine it quite rusty by now.

      AS much as Katie Hopkins was due something like this given her approach to Twitter, Jack Monroe didn't exactly arrive at the High Court like some naive Twitter innocent. She was guilty herself of some pretty disgusting Tweets that were every bit as defamatory and hurtful as Hopkins and was extremely lucky that her target never sued her.
      More importantly, if the opportunity arose, I wouldn't want to have sex with either of them.

      There's been a bit of emotive stuff recently, and in the main NSC is an incredibly good self policing board. Having seen what has happened to the fragrant Katie Hopkins today, who has had to pay damages of £24,000 for two tweets, and legal costs that are likely to be very eye watering, can I remind you splendid ladies and gentlemen to keep it within respectable boundaries.

      I won't be panicking about pissing anyone off on here, not that I intend to. Twitter is a public space and a large element of 'damage' is accredited to the plaintiff if there is a significant audience. As in Tom Daley, the diver and many other celebs with huge followings. As the judge said - "These are meanings with a defamatory tendency, which were published to thousands."

      Calling someone a c***t on NSC will not be pinging up on anyones radar. Besides, the mods here do a good job in keeping things from getting out of hand, or too personal.

      The £24K damages seems paltry compared to the costs the judge has awarded. £107K.

      That's £131K just to insult someone!!
