I really enjoy reading stories like this when someone holds on to a dream and then one day makes it come true.  Congratulations to you!

Very creative and appropriate in today's ridiculous climate where everyone gets a participation trophy and 2+2= 5 or 7 maybe 4. Whatever you feel like that particular day.

Then there is the question because I sit in germany and write from here, which law counts german/european or US Law  ;D its always the same if you can proove what you say about their fake parts etc. its definetly not a problem. I really have a problem with people selling fake parts to people which dont know better.
Suit would likely be filed here in the US and US law would apply since the club is headquartered here in the US.  The club would be sued as a publisher of the alleged slander/ libel. State law would govern likely where the club has its main office and choice of law rules would apply depending on where the lawsuit is filed. It would get very expensive to defend because any defense lawyer that would take on the case would take it on an hourly basis. Unless the club has a CGL policy that would hire a lawyer through insurance to provide a defense. Even so, intentional acts are not covered under insurance so any award or judgment against the Club might not be covered by insurance. The insurer would hire a lawyer to defend but the general rule is that the duty to defend is greater than the duty to indemnify. Why get involved with any of this becomes my question.

All true... however , people are entitled to they're personal opinions and the freedom to express them , no ?
I agree with you.  And people have the freedom to sue you for those opinions if said people perceive that the opinions you express are untrue and are published to a third party therefore giving rise to a cause of action in libel and/or slander.  Doesn't mean the cause of action has merit.  The standard would be that the alleged libel/slander has to be of a nature that a reasonable person would believe the false statements to be true.  If you said that someone's parents were actual monkeys, though untrue, no reasonable person would believe such a statement to actually be true.  If you're stuck defending a libel/slander case the meter starts running.  And it can get expensive.  Granted they are difficult cases to win. I handled one as a plaintiff case and got a small result for the client.  It was very expensive for all concerned.   
As an addendum, I'm not standing in anyone's way to make a list.  Just sayin' one possible and unpleasant outcome.

Say it isn't so!  I heard she had heart problems in the past.  I had the opportunity to meet her at MCACN a few years back.  Very classy lady.  She should be cloned a million times over.

I thought we want to make a list with ebay names where we know that they sell fake stuff? Maybe start now? Should be a extra thread I think or?
In my opinion, creating such a list opens the club up to liability through a slander/libel suit by any one of them. These people are unscrupulous and yes, truth is a legal defense to libel and/or slander. But do you want to have to defend a lawsuit in court even though it's frivolous? Just sayin'
As an addendum it would be easier to attack them in threads on an item by item or case by case basis. Putting them on a broad and sweeping list makes the club more vulnerable to a legal attack otherwise. That's it. Govern yourselves accordingly.

Thanks for the clarification. To me it is a non word. Just looked it up. Pookie is defined as:  "Pookie is a common euphemism to describe something cute. It is also often used as a pet name or as a term of endearment for one's significant other."

How did he get the name "pookie" anyway? It is the most ridiculous name I've heard in a long time.

I would opt for the Porsche in this instance.  Everything new and no worries about concourse issues (not that I've worried about that in the past if you know 6s843) and a full tilt race car that tops out at 340 km/h.  Pure adrenaline...

Good dissertation. What would you take? This or a Cobra? The cost is comparable.
