Can ESLwatch be sued outside the United States?

We operate our website and host all our content within the USA. Proper jurisdiction for a lawsuit is in the U.S. For suits filed outside the U.S., the SPEECH Act precludes enforcement in the US of foreign defamation judgments that are contrary to (1) the US Constitution's First Amendment protections for speech or (2) the immunity for internet service providers hosting such speech under the CDA (an immunity that applies to ESLwatch's hosting of employee reviews). Wikipedia provides some useful background on the SPEECH Act.
