Google sued to reveal blogger’s identity

The case in a nutshell: A school board member doesn’t like some of the names she’s being called in the comments of a post Orthomom’s blog. So she’s suing Google to force them to reveal Orthomom, who currently blogs anonymously. I’m not quite sure why, as the offense is by an anonymous commenter, but then, public figures really don’t get blogs very well.

Two possible consequences: Google caves, or the lawsuit is dismissed.

I’m thinking the latter is the stronger possibility.

The Canonist has a link to the legal papers here.

The Canonist, run by Steven Weiss, has a new blog that I forgot to get around to mentioning. Probably because it’s called Jewess, and I hate that word with every fiber of my being. It’s about Jewish women’s issues, and yet, they have a resident Shiksa. Go figure.

  1. Hey, thanks for the link, even if it’s somewhat of a negative mention. Personally, the word Jewess makes me think of Ivanhoe, and the movie The Governess (“She is a Jewess and I love her!”). In a modern context, such as in the blog, it just makes me laugh.

  2. I told Steven that every time I link to Jewess, I am going to note that I hate that word with every fiber of my being.

    I wasn’t kidding.

    I guess this is a guy’s question, but I can’t find a picture of Ms. Greenbaum. Bigot she may or may not be but is she ugly?
