Well, let's take each section one by one. If your address is listed online anywhere and you haven't paid to have it not listed, then your address may be considered public information. As to you being out of town, if more than one person knows you will be out of town, arguably it is not necessarily a privacy issue or invasion of privacy issue. You need to review his post specifically and see if it actually says he is encouraging robbers to rob your home. If this is a facebook posting, you have the option to report his post to facebook and hide his post and see if facebook would delete the post. Second, you need to find out if you obtained any damages as a result of his posting. In this situation, the best option is to probably report his posting to whichever site or service he used to post it and possibly respond if need be and if the response is an appropriate one.
