    Default Is libel allowed on this site?

    I'm not going to create any, but I'd nonetheless like to double check.

    A sufficiently poorly-written vampire will, when exposed to the sun's rays, turn into a purple unicorn.

    Even if it was, you probably shouldn't be posting lies about people anyways. It's not very nice.

    What? No!

    It's essentially flaming and/or trolling, and is mean-spirited to boot. Pretty sure that the mods could fit any case of libel under one of those rules.

    Unless we're talking about the archaic use of the word, but I'm not sure how that would apply either outside of writing up a law system for a setting.

    Sheriff: Libel is a complicated legal concept. It's not typically a crime, so it doesn't fall under the Criminal Activity portion of the Forum Rules. It is probably Flaming/Trolling in most contexts, though. But we're not going to try to apply libel law and proscribe libel itself. Don't violate any Forum Rules and report any posts that do violate the Forum Rules.
