Totally agree - not even a friend of a friend is safe ..
Oh yes - the lady who found out about the death of her horse .. in LJ's column. Best of luck to her with the PCC.
Unfortunately [Imho] LJ is too weaselly to be sued
for her diary entries - she would probably talk up the fictional aspect/how certain details have been changed. Whereas she certainly has been in legal trouble for reporting a purported 'fact' about a named person: [eg Kate Winslet
And unfortunately the one thing she got sued over is the one thing I agreed with her on. Ever. And I teach pilates....
