Will comments be strictly reserved for DD relating to loans that are imminent or have recently been made available?
Re the discussion about inaccurate information about borrowers and P2P sites. Would the person who first published the information not be the person held responsible?
Frankly publishing anything about a borrower, specific loan or lending site (unless the information is on a Government website and there are many) seems fraught with danger. The only exception I can think of is where the borrower claims significantly more progress than photographic evidence shows to enable further money to be advanced (we all know who I mean I hope).
My understanding is re-publishing a libel is in itself committing libel, hence linking to posts made on social media sites is somewhat fraught, and presumably quoting a post made on here that contains a libel might equally be considered committing libel.
Those with access to DD Central will realise that the posts I'm making there are primarily links to companies house, estate agencies, planning portals, corporate websites and the occaisonal newspaper. I have voiced an opinion on one borrower, albeit obliquely and indirectly and with the IMHO caveat (L PBL177-9 etc)
How DD Central is used will evolve over time, but as I hinted yesterday it might best be considered a repository of "facts" (links/references) that allow the verification of posts made on the public boards, and allow readers of DD Central the opportunity to form their own impressions as to the suitability of a particular loan for their own investments by reading the source referenced material themselves.
