Anonymous blogging fun, chapter 2.

And the fun continues. Rosemary Port, the blogger who was outted for her Liskula Cohen skanky skankness remarks is now suing Goggle for revealing her name. Now, as you read through the background and various opinions of the net of public opinion, it seems like she has no case.

If Google had simply revealed her name for no reason? I’m guessing she’s a winner! But, she did the whole libel comments thing first, so I’m guessing Google will argue they had no choice but to reveal it when compelled.

However, I just wanted to throw something out there to consider. Now that you see what Ms. Plaintiff/Defendent looks like, is your initial opinion any different? There’s no other way to say it than to say it: Admit it, she’s not the “husky” Pat-type everyone expected who might call a supermodel a skank. The two were also familiar with each other, having previously been at a few different events together.

And because of that, I put it you people: This is the kind of tabloid shit you’d expect to see between Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie on TMZ. And in that context, does the anonymous rights arguement hold up, or does it just seem like a silly catfight?

Deliberate amongst yourselves.

What an odd situation.

Bless you for your honesty. It's amazing how much we judge people by their physical traits and the signals they send.

Backing away from that sensitive topic, this is probably the best thing that ever happened to that blogger. Once the storm blows over, she's a household name.
