I say bravo. If she wins, maybe it will cut down on cowards hiding behind alias and lead to more substantive debate.

Sheehan v PennLive derryright
I am interested in seeing what the “cost” of hosting anonymous posting becomes. I predict derryright and/or PL will offer a settlement to Sheehan to make this go away. But…I can’t see Sheehan wanting or needing a financial settlement. Nor can I see how (or why) any site found liable for anonymous blather can afford to protect said anonymity, without charging the anonymous something for its trouble. Pass the popcorn and grab a good seat. I continue to hope the anonymous posting cloud I have been fighting for years, will soon dry up. The quality of PL posts will improve as soon as we all own our comments, like I always have, and like derryright may soon, if justice is done.
