No

A proclaimation of criminal acts on the internet (or anywhere else) would not be sufficient for a law enforcement agency to file charges. Law enforcement agencies, as well as the judicial system, would require something a little more concrete. It is not illegal to discuss, or even to confess a past criminal act, and such discussion or 'confession' would not be admissable in a court of law. At least not in the State of California.

Why do you ask? have you committed a crime?

Ok i received the David Backham rumor email, and apparently if i forward it to a third party i can be sued for libel for further spreading lies. That won't happen anyway as thousands of people have forwarded it, but is that true that i could be sued if they track it to me? (scared!)

techically yes, if you were to pass on a false and libelous allegation, you would also be held liable, even though you were NOT the original source of the libel. The good news is that the plaintiff (Mr Beckham) would have to do the investigating (or employ someone else) in order to track you down, so you can rest assure that the FBI - or any other law enforcement agencies - will not be busy trying to bust into your e-mail account and prove your guilt.

Also, Mr Beckham himself would have to file the charges. It's a civil matter and not a criminal one, so it's not something that the State would concern itself with.
