Help with Internet slander

I have a friend who is being defamed on a couple web sites. They used her full name in some wordpress comments that did not require any authentication. All attempts to contact the webmaster have failed. All attempts to find an address to send correspondence to fail. I've read this and this. I do have the name of the company the domain is registered through by checking the Whois data. That is the only thing listed in the Whois. Other than the reputation builder stuff of trying to flood the internet with good things, what are some alternatives? Cease & desist to registrar? Hire a hacker to remove the comments? Anything outside the box? The person in question is in fact a lawyer. . .so any legal actions can be taken for cheap . . .
