I personally applaud the unmasking of the internet's anonymous. Maybe once they realize they're not truly anonymous, they'll stop with their appalling behavior. What they're doing exemplifies everything that is wrong with our sensationalist, power-hungry and generally corrupted culture.

This kind of mob-trolling behavior is not ok, and prosecuting perpetrators to the full extend of the law ought to set a nice example.

I'm all for free speech, and blowing the whistle. But this is much too far, and honestly, anarchy isn't any better than a police state.

The paste has an anonymous author.

Point well taken. I would've been happier with, say, the FBI being behind the unmasking.
