Legal Threats

I posted this under blogging, only to have the thread removed... without a word to me about what specifically was wrong with the post...
The concept is too important to simply delete and forget...
Sometimes, when we blog, and verify all of our facts by carefully cross-linking to related information... we still get threatened for libel, slander, harassment, internet stalking and everything else the offended person can think of...

When it's someone with enough money, it's called "slamming".. they can start with sending threats to the web host, before actually seeing a lawyer...

And I've had web hosts cave, removing totally accurate content...

In the past, this once turned into a case of me moving around to various blogging hosts, and the other party threatened each in turn... until finally being distracted by larger issues, and giving up on my puny efforts.

So... While NPR has aired reports on standing pat while being slammed, I'd like to hear from people that have been through the wringer on this issue, what they did, what the results were, and whether they still report on controversial topics, what they do to protect their blogs.
