Aw, Bad News For Anonymous Abusive Commmenter Cowards

Filed under: Uncategorized — ronrosenbaumwriter @ 6:28 am

I’ve always felt the shame and self-loathing they must feel at their cowardly lack of self worth (and, usually, lack of basic literacy skills) should have been enough punishment for anonymous abusive commenters and their fear of self-exposure.

But who knows, as this report suggests maybe you anonymous abusers among commenters will have something more to fear: liability under the law, Not that I would take advantge of this ruling against any of them–although, who knows, if I’m in a bad mood…

Hope his persuades all you “strict constructionists” to join the ACLU and cower under their protection. And maybe consider self-restraint as you make fools of yourselves. Doesn’t it ever make you feel bad to know you’re in a class with obscene callers?

As the author of this Mediaite report puts it:

” People get away with a lot of crap on the Internet under the cloak of anonymity. Would you imagine an internet where everyone had to stand behind their own words. Might that result in higher level of discourse? Dare to dream.”

  1. Is this post supposed to mean something, coming from someone who managed to pack “gun-tards”, “brainless thugs”, “unnamed bullies”, “gun carrier freakazoids”, “armed creep” AND accusations against people legally exercising their RKBA of “putting innocent people in danger” and “terrorizing” others by their mere presence… all into less than 200 words?

    People get away with a lot of crap on the Internet even when they put a name to it. All one needs is a web page like this one. Anonymity has nothing to do with it.

    I sincerely hope none of the people YOU demonized find themselves in a “bad mood”.

  2. Our host needs to see this video from ABC News:

    This is the same guy that MSNBC is using to argue that a bunch of right-wing white guys wish to physically harm Barack Obama.
