      •  *were* ... if we are adopting opposite sides. (0+ / 0-)

        The point is that you based your rant on the assumption that the identities of the people posting the Tweets hadn't been verified and that by the diarist posting them unredacted, somebody was defamed.

        Don't know if anyone is... Don't know if not... (0+ / 0-)

        The identities on the messages have not been validated. If this is a false accusation by someone, spreading this around in a public forum is also a false accusation.

        Odds are near zero, but kids so stupid as to document threats online may not be so stupid as to do that in their own name.

        You state that:
        The identities on the messages have not been validated.
        How do you know that? If you can't answer that question, then your concerns about slandering someone...
        Don't know if anyone is... Don't know if not...
        is so much hot air.

        •  You asked, I answered. (0+ / 0-)

          Now you change your rationalization.

          Simple.

          Don't dump shit on children.
          Don't spread this shit around the World.

          Try to find some shred of empathy.

          Or not.
