Just because I posted my manifesto which went into detail on how to properly perform a human sacrifice for pagan gods doesn't mean I'm a bad person, or breaking the law. Or, does it?

Maybe now people can start acting on the internet the way they would anywhere else in the world?

Maybe?

Or is this just a vain hope?

I heard you are completely anonymous on the internet. I know it's true because I read it on ...the internet.

Shawnee County District Judge Steven Ebberts is a dead midget transvestite hooker.

I had my pants on the entire time. And I was typing with both hands. YOU CAN'T PROVE A THING

At least here, the judges tell the jurors multiple times every single day not to discuss the case with anyone until they're in the jury room, and at that time only with the other jurors.

Is it really that hard to keep your fingers off the keyboard?

I didn't say I did have sex with that underage celebrity, I simply said I would have sex with her.

Go into detail about killing the President, say you are going to do it, and say you have the material and opportunity and I would hope that Drew would serve you up on a silver platter.

My God, man! Don't you realize the NSA reads Fark?
 
2012-11-01 03:42:32 PM
yep, that snarky joke about subbys mom is comparable to a juror posting online about a murder trial.
 
2012-11-01 03:43:31 PM
Good thing my true name is in a lost alphabet of forgotten runes.

I prefer the anonymity of the current internet, but if they forced us to take responsibility for our words, I think I could manage not to say anything incriminating. I do have some modicum of self control.
 
2012-11-01 03:45:54 PM
Trust me that's all they got in their little world, as you know, I have been there. Remember the pukes names they will do it for ever

This is what happens when smart people get out of jury duty.
 
2012-11-01 03:47:28 PM
If they did that on most fark accounts, they'd only nab 4 or 5 people
 
2012-11-01 03:48:23 PM
Actually, fark is very mild.
 
2012-11-01 03:48:45 PM
Good. Let's use this ruling to force all those "real citizens" on political ads to use their names.

I want to know what "women" and "workers" actually support Rmoney.

No, but I read it and you're doing it totally wrong.

As he should. As soon as he's issued the warrant. I have no problem knowing that everything I post anywhere on the internet is subject to identification with a warrant. It's the warrant-less searches I'm concerned with.

If the emails from my relatives are any indication, the answer to that question is: "No."

I can imagine it being less frequented with scat porn on the side bar but that wouldn't help with advertising revenue.

There was an ad a few years back where Russ Feingold had "Wisconsin" citizens talking about how he didn't represent special interests and was only looking out for Wisconsinites. However, it turns out those "Wisconsinites" were actually lobbyists for various special interests.

So yeah, I like this idea.

2012-11-01 03:54:29 PM
In this case, who cares? This commenter may or may not have been directly involved in illegal activity. Or perhaps they were talking out of their rear end from some cornfield.
Match the commenter's name with the jurors' names and there's your answer. Dishes are done. Even appoint arbitration so the person stays anonymous if he or she was not involved.
If a judge or attorney is angered and wants to know my identity because I said I prefer brunettes to blondes and Han took the one and only shot, that's when we're all in trouble.

I was a juror on the Lindbergh baby trial

I like how they mention the user's pseudonym like they're going to magically get his real name from the registration account. Our local paper's website started posting people's 'real names' next to their user names because they were getting completely out of hand on discussions (small towns, rural area), and the smart ones had fake names registered. The dumb ones kept using real names until they realized what was going on, and now the entire site is a ghost town except for a few times a month when something actually interesting happens.

There are also a few who used their real names before and after because they 'stand by what they say'; I'm friends with one of them and part of her reasoning was she writes a column so it doesn't matter either way, which makes sense. However she's a little batty and I've privately contacted her several times to disprove things she's repeated from Fox News or whatever. The reason I still stay in touch with her is that she can admit when she's wrong and that she should have researched the subject better. Not many people out there will do that...
 
2012-11-01 03:55:44 PM
Yea I dunno, murder trial, potential biased juror

I'll allow it
 
2012-11-01 03:55:53 PM
Jury integrity?

Eh, fine. No big deal.
