Think Twice Before You Comment Online

Yes.The blogosphere which has its reputation for free speech is no longer going to be the same.Looks like blogosphere's free speech is under attack.There are few incidents where people ended up paying millions of dollars for posting libels on their/others sites.

In the past two years, more than 50 lawsuits stemming from postings on blogs and website message boards have been filed across the nation. The suits have spawned a debate over how the "blogosphere" and its revolutionary impact on speech and publishing might change libel law.

Today ,a Florida woman has been awarded $11.3 million in a defamation lawsuit against a Louisiana woman who posted messages on the Internet accusing her of being a "crook," a "con artist" and a "fraud."

So guys,think twice before you comment.
