A warning to Internet assassins | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

A warning to Internet assassins | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

A couple of warnings to internet trolls:

A tweet published by Sally Bercow about Tory peer Lord McAlpine was libellous, [Britain’s] High Court has ruled.
The wife of Commons Speaker John Bercow tweeted two days after BBC Newsnight wrongly linked a “leading Conservative politician” to sex abuse claims.
Amid widespread speculation about his identity, she wrote: “Why is Lord McAlpine trending. *innocent face*.”

ONE of Australia’s leading plastic surgeons, Chris Moss, ...  has brought a legal action in the Victorian Supreme Court against Craig Rodda, the managing director of a marketing agency, which he claims has driven business away from his practice…

The posts which began late last year on Australia’s largest on-line plastic surgery forum alleged that authentic positive reviews of Dr Moss’ work were fake and had been written by his own staff…
“I was shocked and appalled by the threads containing (false) suggestions that I was dishonest, unprofessional, overcharged clients and that my surgical work was not a high standard ...,” Dr Moss said in an affidavit.
Dr Moss alleges that an individual operating from an IP address at Mr Rodda’s home had created seven different pseudonyms to criticise his work on the forum and encourage others to follow suit.
Dr Moss alleges the posts were made on the instructions of competitors as there were recommendations to other plastic surgeons…
Mr Rodda told The Weekend Australian that the posts were made from his IP address but claimed he was not the author. He said that his defacto wife had admitted making the posts but had done so “innocently for the purposes of research”.
