3. If you are still convinced a forum user is making defamatory statements against you, consider taking it up with the forum user. Contradict their malicious facts with your own peaceful and intelligent counter-response. If you do this reasonably, they will change their mind, or at least be made to look like an idiot, while your new position will be considered the correct one. Mission accomplished.

This is great.  When I was in college the philosophy department sponsored a campus-wide lecture on "What is truth?".  They ultimately said a true fact or assertion is something that any reasonable person, through the accumulation of experience, would ultimately come to accept as true. 

However, they added a caveat that for some people who disagree with you this necessary accumulation of experience may not occur during your lifetime!
