    Neiditch Complaint

    If you read the Complaint, you can more readily infer that there are three alternative reasons for the pleaading of the provider defendants: (i) the defamatory posts are anonymous and the plaintiffs are trying to find out who the actual posters are; (ii) the plaintiffs want the defamatory posts taken down; and (iii) GoDaddy, contrary to its supposed policy, is allowing masking sites and this is a way of telling them about the damage from enforcing its policy.

    Section 230 is a change from the common law rule. So without section 230, the Complaint would be just fine. With section 230, the plaintiffs are aggressively attempting to succeed on what is otherwise a decent defamation case.
