    Sets a pretty scary precedent, though I doubt it will have much effect on the proliferation of Fire[insert coach here].com Web pages.

    What's the world coming to when you can't call someone a skank without getting the google involved?

    I can't stand how people can post things anonymously in the first place. It's ridiculous. When did it become our right not to be held accountable for things we say?

    Oh, wait, I forgot where I was.

    Never mind then. Carry on.

    I agree... Calling someone something like that and expecting anonymity IS a scary precedent.

    This is not new. Companies have done this to people who have posted stuff on stock boards -- go get a subpoena to have Yahoo or someone turn over the names. They always do.
