she apparently needs a lesson in English and law... none of what i have seen 
that you have written qualifies, by definition, as slander and certainly not 

from the Oxford Dictionary:
"slander: somebody/something to make a false spoken statement about somebody 
that is intended to damage the good opinion that people have of them."

i've seen no false statements made about her.

from the Oxford Dictionary:
"harassment: 1. the act of annoying or worrying somebody by putting pressure on 
them or saying or doing unpleasant things to them.
2. the act of making repeated attacks on an enemy."

i've seen no "pressure" being put on her, no repeated attacks, and certainly 
nothing defining her as an "enemy"...

IANAL but it certainly appears that she is reaching quite far to justify her 
actions... if anything, it would appear that she is slandering you by her 
statement that you are slandering and harassing her...

i didn't see her say that she was stepping down... what i saw was her saying 
that she was giving up whatever rights she thought she had to the public and 
accessible _ban list_...

the fact that she is using statements made elsewhere to justify her actions in 
some IRC channels that she moderates raises quite a number of red flags... red 
flags that should maybe be taken to that IRC network's admins if anyone cares to 
really do something about them...
