This is the age old thing that people think they can post and say what they want because they are using a user name rather than their actual name. 

Wrong.  There are many cases of lawyers forcing forum owners to provide the actual details of members so that they can issue libel cases against them.  If you say something that may be libellous the fact you did so under a pseudonym is neither here nor there, if the person or organisation that has taken offence against it decide to take action they will find your identity.

This is very true. Of course some people offer fictitious names and details when registering for a forum and it is an interesting point in how much responsibility is lodged with the forum owners for establishing the truthfulness of registration details. Too often, it's the forum owners who are pursued by the lawyers which is why our excellent moderators remind us all , from time to time, about being careful with our posts.

I have been on the wrong end of far too many such phone calls from the legal peeps, although over the years have built up a good relationship with most of them. That means I get yelled at less & they politely & calmly ask me to sort it out. At the start it did amaze me how quickly & easily my phone number was found out by them - home & mobile! It's an infrequent thing now because the vast majority of our posters know what lines not to cross and the admin team are very quick to remove anything that can cause those calls to come. I'm glad we are where we are now as opposed to 5-10 years ago!
