Plattsburgh, NY asked in Consumer Law, Civil Litigation and Libel & Slander for New York

Q: A Company calls people that dont' like censorship creeps. is this slander?

there's a product called "skullgirls" that has remained RELITIVELY uncensored but now is very censored... in strange an inconsistent ways.

i've been trying to contact the game companies Autumn Games, Future Club and Hidden Varriable studios... to no avail. and a lot of people are upset. rightly but they are dismissed and then have their complaints AND THEIR CHARACTER reduced to being "creeps". and predators

I've been talking with Ryne Weiss of THE FIRE org and so far... i'm not sure what to do. i'm not a man of money and i have no idea how to make a foundation or if one already exists to fight and reverse censorship.

i've been very suicidal and slandered for about 10 years on other cases and it really hurts but that isn't enough to make a case legally or argumentatively.

Even then, they can still tell me to eat salt.

A: Calling individuals "creeps" and "predators" could potentially be considered defamation, depending on the context and whether the statements are presented as facts rather than opinions. To have a viable defamation claim in California, you would need to prove that the statement was false, damaging to your reputation, made to a third party, and that the party making the statement knew it was false or was negligent in determining its truthfulness. However, defamation cases can be difficult to prove and often require substantial resources, so careful consideration and consultation with a defamation attorney would be necessary.
