It is certainly a breach of confidentiality and so you could sue for compensation and probably an injunction. You should look up the laws relating to harassment because it could easily come to that as well.

 

There are properly more specific recent laws because there has been a lot of development in this area recently – although I'm not able to say exactly what they are.

 

No doubt others will be along to give you some more specific information.

As BankFodder pointed out, this could be a breach of confidentiality and also harassment. Also, as the comment contains your personal data, posting it publicy without your consent would be a breach of the Data Protection Act 1998 for which you can claim damages for distress, if you also suffered some other type of damage.

 

I suppose the question is then what you want to do about it? What does a good outcome look like for you?
