It's important, when you're involved in online skepticism, to be able to archive content - because online bullshit is often changed, deleted, or moved when called out by skeptics. Meryl Dorey's Australian Vaccination network are a good example of this - dissenting opinions on their facebook profiles and blogs are immediately and summarily deleted, so it's important to keep a copy of any engagement in these fora. Likewise, egregiously incorrect assertions, threats, insults and material of dubious legality from supporters is also expunged. Screenshots, printing to PDF, web archiving and other tricks can help save this content.

This page is, obviously, under constant revision. You are positively encouraged to practice archiving tricks against this page.

Legalities

The US DMCA will often be falsely employed to quash distribution of screenshot material. This is illegal under the DMCA, which includes provisions for criticism, news reporting, etc - and other jurisdictions have similar provisions.. Still, this does not stop service providers such as Facebook overreacting to false claims and removing content. Challenge everything. You are probably in the right under fair use (IANAL, get legal advice if unsure). If threatened directly with legal action, cite Arkell vs. Pressdram and if in doubt, seek legal advice.
