I just commented on a digg post - this is worth repeating here.
A Missouri mother should serve three years in prison for her role in a MySpace hoax on a 13-year-old neighbor who committed suicide, federal prosecutors said in court documents filed Wednesday in Los Angeles.
Below is my comment - i cant stress this strongly enough.
This really really bad law.
I dont think you guys understand the mother shouldn't be on trial at all. Not for murder, not for manslaughter, not even for accessing computers illegally.
This is really nothing more than a sorry accident but faultless.
Basically we could end up like South Korea where you can 'only' sign into websites using your real name (it's for this reason that YouTube is now blocked in South Korea).
Basically what you are saying is that if i walk up to you in the street and suggest to you that you should run in front of a car and kill youself then i could be going to jail for manslaughter??????
I'm glad some people understand the ramifications if this case isn't overturned.
If you still have a problem then go f&ck yourself.
(Yes that last suggestion was meant to be an ironic statement).
