However, some of them are fabricated. Just imagine what happens when an evil/bitter ex, lover/spouse, or business associate decides to get back at another by posting defamatory content on Defaulters.com after fallout?

It states that ‘No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.’
Furthermore, ‘no cause of action may be brought, and no liability may be imposed under any State or local law that is inconsistent with this section.’ Section 230 also states that ‘This federal law preempts any state laws to the contrary.’

The Position of Defaulters on Taking Down Already Published Posts
Under FAQ, they have pre answered questions, especially about people begging, threatening, insulting, and even offering money for their posts to be taken down, all to no avail.
Some of the reasons given for not taking down posts include:
- Since all the content on the website is created almost entirely by third parties, the website admin can’t decide what is true. They always remain a neutral third party to any disputes resulting from a post.
- Alerts sent to the website are a matter of public record meant to inform the public and expose patterns of flawed individuals and businesses and cannot be taken down.

Why Defaulters.com Never Take Down Defamatory Post?
A vast majority of the Alerts on the website are complaints about being cheated in some form or fashion.
According to them, in this way, they are a truth platform because, through the Alerts, they allow consumers to educate other consumers about potentially faulty goods, bad service, and potential scams. As a public record website, it takes information very seriously.
The website’s Terms of Service, which everyone must agree to when creating an account, clearly states that the reports cannot be removed once they are published.
That is because the information is a permanent record used by consumers to make informed decisions about individuals and products.
It is also sometimes used by law enforcement agencies when investigating the same.
The authors of the alerts must check a box certifying that what they have published is valid before being posted on the website.
Even if the Alert is inaccurate or defamatory and you can prove it, it still doesn’t warrant the destruction of public records on the website.
As a matter of policy, the website will remove any content determined to be unlawful, obscene, inappropriate, or unduly offensive and will comply with any valid/lawful court orders.

How Can You Get Defaulters.com To Remove Post?
There are not so many options for taking down defamatory content or at least keeping it hidden such that it will be tough to find.
Harmful content can be kept away from the public view by filing an update on the website, deindexing the content on Google, burying such content on search engines, or presenting the website directly with a subpoena or a court order.
In cases where the mistake happens, and a settlement is granted, agreed upon, org encourages authors of alerts to email the correct erroneous information, submit additional information, or explain how the circumstances have changed or otherwise resolved. That information should be updated over the original Alert.
Defaming contents can be deindexed by the Google search engine. It means that the content is removed from search results so that when the defaming content is searched for, it won’t appear on Google search results even though the content is still online.
Some people also bury the content on search engines through SEO, but this cannot solve much, especially if it was just newly posted. The chances are that it will trend for a while.
Although with SEO, you can ensure that the harmful content concerning your brand fails to appear on the first-page result of Google or other search engines through more consistent productive posts.
Online reputation companies like RepZe do this by helping you promote your positive content through well-defined SEO optimization, such that your brand and positive content can outrank the harmful website in terms of relevance on search engines.
