It is also a popular platform for other baseless and malicious accusations and includes “reports” about gold diggers, liars, scammers, and drug addicts.

And, while DirtyCheater.org and other cheater exposing websites may have started as honest, transparent, and noble platforms for protecting persons from unfaithful individuals, such websites have unfortunately evolved into hot-zones for online defamation, false accusations, and malicious attacks.

Are Posts & Comments on DirtyCheater.org Legal?
Simply put, yes. While it might seem unfathomable that libelous accusations and false posts can be allowed on a website or online bulletin board, the legalities behind it run quite deep.
To start, DirtyCheater.org and most cheater shaming and homewrecker exposing websites are classified as user-generated content platforms, due to the bulk of their content being contributed by well…third-party users and content creators. DirtyCheater.org simply hosts a “neutral” platform and bulletin board for users to create and curate content.
Such types of websites are protected under a controversial piece of Internet legislation, known as the Communications Decency Act (CDA). Drafted in 1996, the Communications Decency Act effectively grants near-blanket immunity to websites and Internet service providers (ISPs) which provide neutral platforms for user-generated content. Similar to how telephone companies are not held liable for the illegal and criminal acts discussed across their telephone lines, user-generated content platforms are not liable for content and information posted to their platform – unless a narrow exception applies.
Specifically, Section 230 of the CDA reads:
“No provider or user of any interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”
When analyzing whether immunity should be granted to an ISP or website, courts will generally utilize a three-pronged test, which requires a defendant to satisfy all three of the below prongs.
- The defendant must provide a platform for “interactive computer services,”
- The cause of action asserted must treat the defendant platform or bulletin board as the actual creator and publisher of the contentious information and posts at issue,
- The contentious information must have been provided by a third-party information content provider.
Defamation Law Fact: Defamation is an all-encompassing term for a false assertion of fact communicated to a third-party, which subsequently causes harm or damage to another’s reputation. It can be broken down into two core types: libel and slander. Libel refers to a written or published (think photographs, videos, and other media) false assertion of fact, while slander refers to a spoken false assertion of fact. Note that because videos are preserved in a tangible medium, they are classified as libel under modern-day defamation law.
