When does statute of limitations run on defamatory website posting?

This Jurist post cites a decision by a federal judge in Texas to the effect that the one-year Texas state for defamation claims begins to run when the defamatory material is posted, regardless of how long it stays posted.

So, maybe we're in the clear for anyone we've defamed before October 21, 2005, as the Virginia statute is also one year.
