British Court Kicks Facebook Ass!

The Social Network has met its match - Nicola Brookes.
Nicola's support for X Factor's Frankie Cocozza led to a horrid hate-campaign against her - detailed here [with photographs and screen grabs] by the Daily Mail, which reports "the High Court ruling sent a message to the cyber bullies that their anonymity can be stripped away, leaving them open to prosecution... Last week the High Court granted an order compelling the site (facebook)to disclose the bullies’ names, email addresses and their computers’ internet protocol (IP) addresses, which can be used to determine a computer’s location."

In your Zuckerface!

I like one of the comments left on the Daily Mail site by a reader in Cheshire: "The answer's simple - don't use Facebook! It never fails to amaze me how many people are willing to share personal details with every Tom, Dick, pervert & criminal in the world & then wonder why this happens." SOUND ADVICE!

MORE BAD NEWS FOR FACEBOOK :::
Facebook‘s days of torrid growth in the U.S. appear to be behind it, according to one researcher.

ComScore reports that Facebook U.S. audience grew 5% in April, to 158 million. That was down from a 24% jump in April 2011 and a 89% growth in 2010.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
