    This isn't the link I originally saw but it's along similar lines and could be useful:

    http://www.arenaflowers.com/blog/200...ats-different/

    I'll keep looking for the original one.

    Update:

    This is Unison's advice for safe publishing. It's meant for branch newsletters but the principles equally apply to web publishing:

    And this is a US-based site but the information is relevant as the web is world wide publishing medium:

    http://www.dba-oracle.com/internet_j...libel_laws.htm

    All good information not only for forum owners but also for forum members as it helps to understand what you shouldn't post, why you shouldn't post it and the consequences of doing so.

    Still haven't found the original guide, though.

    But thanks for looking

    What I meant was that this particular link mentions about how to avoid upsetting people in various parts of the world and shows how libel law differs in different countries which, I think, helps to broaden how we think of the subject (although some give it no thought at all!). It also has more of a cyber-slant to it than the Unison link.

    It's me. I didn't make myself clear first time round. I am aware that this forum is governed by UK law but my post did read as if there should be some worldwide law to cover the internet. That would be a logistical nightmare to operate!
