No, not me.
Apparently a judge has barred a Seattle man from posting ANY comments to an online discussion group.
Judge Pro Tempore Marcine Anderson of the King County District Court issued a ruling last week restraining Scott Abraham from making or responding to postings on the Internet newsgroup rec.skiing.alpine either directly or indirectly, in person or through others.
Read about it for yourself at:
I know that the issue of free speech has been discussed here in relation to a privately owned and operated message board, but is this different? Are internet newsgroups a public forum?..and isn’t posting in them analogous with speaking on a street corner?
As is pointed out in comments in the article that I’ve provided in the link by an Internet law professor, the First Amendment is not an absolute right and it doesn’t protect defaming or harassing speech, however, does the ruling by the judge go too far by prohibiting any and all speech by a particular individual?
