Nigel, the Freedom of Speech is not the freedom to defame unjustly. This is the kind of tripe that bothers me mightily. It seems that in the age of the internet, appropriate behaviour and morals are a fluid thing. I am not trying to squelch anything, but this clearly rises to the level of libel. Is that OK because "it's the internet and you shouldn't believe anything"? Lives that have been devoted to good works can be destroyed or damaged simply because someone with a case of the ass decides to do it.
