    Can omly speak for UK but slander is spoken while libel is written. A good rule of thumb is that libel is something which could lower a person's standing in the community.

    Same basic concept here, except (I believe) the emphasis is that the statement not be even a little bit true.

    Same here I believe, the question I have is that why is this question asked (though it does seem to need some clarity), the greatest weapon
    in this fray is truth, ergo, the truth spoken/written is not admissable as a point of contention if the person/cult wants to bawww about it.
    From what I've seen over the years even baiting the clams with claims tends to shut them up because, if they contend the truth, then its more than likely even more of that horrid thing (more truth) will rear its head and bite them.
    There is also mockery, 'humour', and satire to consider in this light.
    But, that said, why would anyone even consider making something up to slander anyone if it didn't have some sort of malicious intent?
    So, my answer to the OP, whose intent be unknown, is why? Just don't make shit up about anyone and you'll be fine.
    Not sure if I got a grip on this here, but that's my take on it.

    "like - don't make shit up about anyone and you'll be fine"
