MR. GRENOUGH (JERRY GRENOUGH) HAS INFORMED COUNSEL OF THE DEFAMATORY CONTENT POSTED USING HIS NAME AND REFERENCES TO HIM WITHIN THIS FORUM AND DEMANDS IMMEDIATE REMOVAL AND APOLOGY.GOVERN YOURSELF ACCORDINGLY.

Okay, it took me a while of digging to find out what this weird submission was all about but here it is: years ago, when this website was first created, I compiled a list of "funnies" - quotes from people with funny hair and TV evangelists who have been claiming the end of the world is happening every year since the 70s. Apparently Jerry Grenough is one of these people - his quote "the 2 of September is absolutely the beginning of the final year of this present age" appears in the "Funny Stuff" block on the left here once in a while.

So now that the end has not come, is this actually defamatory content? Or does he just look silly? He's predicted "the rapture" already in 2008 and it didn't happen.

Yeah,

"Funny Stuff" is funny stuff.

Peace to you all,

I'm not sure how that is defamation of character... unless you said, "boy this guy is a slobbering idiot"... you didn't say that did you, Virgil? you theological terrorist, you jerk.

Yeah, quoting someone cannot be defamation by definition.

Can you file a counter suit for harassment? Grenough certainly has deeper pockets.

Perhaps he considers it "defamatory content" because you improperly identified it as "Funny Stuff" and not truthfully identified it as "False Stuff"
