It's going to be interesting to see how the next 10 years or so pan out with regard to on-line laws. It's only a matter of time before the "have-nots" figure out a way to sue everyone online too.


And FWIW, you're never really anonymous. They can track you down by IP addresses, or the MAC address that is hard-coded to your NIC. Cross reference with the billing address, etc... and gotcha.

God I fucking hate laws.

Also strong legal system we have. Women serve less time for killing their husbands...

"Hal Turner, a right-wing blogger from New Jersey, faces up to 10 years in prison for posting a comment that three Chicago judges "deserve to be killed" for having rejected a Second Amendment challenge to the city's handgun ban in 2009."

I meant it sarcastically.. intranet = no tone

our online rights are being stripped away day by day... net neutrality will no longer exist
