MySpace suicide case

I totally forgot to mention this, as I was sick with the flu at the time and only just remembered, but GOOD NEWS!

There have been federal charges leveled against the Mom that faked the MySpace account that resulted in Megan Meyer's suicide.

They took a different tack than I would have, but it would really open the doors for further litigation (criminal & civil) when the Feds win their case.

Defrauders beware! You're about to lose your "bravery from being out of range"...

This could have some serious ramifications for ToSes around the 'net. It's going to be really interesting to see the fallout from this.

Regardless of the outcome, I just hope it brings Megan's family some peace.

I don't think there's peace to be found this side of the grave for something like that.
