They're watching you

Over at UK leftist site PooterGeek, an unwlecome visitor left a particularly unpleasant message for the site's host that 'niggers smell of shit'.

What was the reaction from PooterGeek? Ignore him? Ridicule him? Bad-mouth him?


They traced him through his IP address back to his school server and called the Headteacher. For the unwelcome visitor was in fact a schoolboy.

The blogging community thrives on anonymity. This heavy handed approach will surely curtail the free and frank exchange of views that pass through blog sites.

A scary development.
