A timely reminder that even as anonymous usernames, gobbing off at each other and the world in general in the vastness of cyberspace- we are all responsible for our own posts. There is a report in today's Sunday Times of 'leading cosmetic surgeon' Dr Jesper Sorensen taking action against two Mumsnet* posters who criticised him in a since-deleted thread. The High Court has ordered Mumsnet to comply with his demands to give up the identity of the two posters- he's offered to cover any costs incurred by the website in identifying them. Mumsnet must not only reveal their real identities but also copies of all relevant PMs between the usernames concerned and any other users that it, 'reasonably believes refer to Sorensen or his surgery.' Sorry, the ST article is behind a paywall here:- Surgeon unmasks critics on Mumsnet but here's a Mumsnet thread on it :- Sunday Times story today about Mumsnet having to reveal posters' names | Mumsnet Discussion *Apologies for mentioning the Mumsnet website but it's really irrelevant which particular forum is involved in this- the interesting bit is the process.
