I already explained all the actions I took in my post. Once the defamatory content was removed, we felt the situation was resolved, and my lawyer and I both believed the mod's lie that the ban was for 48 hours. After 48 hours, I realized the mod lied to deceive my lawyer that he was no longer needed, and they were then using the ban as an attempt to extort a confession that I really was sexist afterwards, but the only solution was to just run as far away as I could from this forum that really started feeling like a cult at this point (and legally, I think a forum can ban anyone for any reason they want to, even if they don't like the color of your hair or something). The only legal claim I had was the defamatory post content declaring that I was a sexist, and they pulled that without telling me once they realized my lawyer was investigating the forum and going to send them a letter and we were taking this very, very seriously. So the defamatory content was ultimately removed, and that's all that matters. But I'm not getting my legal fees back. The whole situation still makes me feel sick thinking about it. If you look at wookieepedia, https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Jedi_Council_Forums , theforce net Jedi Council Forums has a history of conflict that have driven out authors like Karen Traviss and Troy Denning. I should have realized that and left long before they did this to me.
