Libel, slander, verbal abuse of others on the net can still get one in plenty of trouble in the courts as well… Even telling the truth has to be balanced with Compassionate (Gal 6:1 KJV) Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Cyber Bullies like to tell the lie that slander, libel, bullying is an acceptable free right of expression of the internet cause they are liars like the devil their father.. it never is..
“Canadian model wins right to unmask online bully in the U.S. Updated Wed. Aug. 19 2009 1:10 PM ET CTV.ca Canadian model Liskula Cohen is used to the sometimes catty attitudes of the New York fashion world, but when one woman decided to dig her claws into her in an online blog, Cohen fought back. In August 2008, Cohen ran across a blog on Blogger.com, called “Skanks in NYC.” The now defunct blog included five anonymous postings that read “I would have to say the first-place award for ‘Skankiest in NYC’ would have to go to Liskula Gentile Cohen.” The posts included pictures of 5-foot-10 blond Cohen and an unidentified man in sexually suggestive positions, with captions describing her as a “skanky ho’” and “a psychotic, lying, whoring skank.” Cohen, 37, a Canadian-born cover girl who has appeared in Vogue and other fashion magazines, was livid and demanded that Google, the owner of the blogging service, give her the poster’s identity. When Google refused, Cohen took it to court — and won. On Tuesday, New York Supreme Court Judge Joan Madden agreed that Cohen was entitled to information about the blogger and ordered Google to turn it over. In her ruling, Madden cited a Virginia court decision in a similar case that found that online bullies should be held accountable when they cause injury. “The protection of the right to communicate anonymously must be balanced against the need to assure that those persons who choose to abuse the opportunities presented by this medium can be made to answer for such transgressions,” the judge said, quoting the Virginia decision. Google complied with the ruling Tuesday evening, submitting the creator’s IP address and e-mail address — all that is required to register for a blog on Blogger.com. Cohen told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Wednesday that she immediately recognized the blogger, describing her as an acquaintance who was a regular fixture at dinners and parties. Cohen has not revealed the blogger’s name publicly. Cohen and her lawyer, Steven Wagner, said they are now planning a defamation suit against the blogger. Cohen alleges the blog has been harmful to her career and that prospective clients would question her about the blog and what she was doing in the photos. While Wagner said he was happy the court recognized that “the Internet is not a place where people can freely defame people,” the attorney for the blogger disputed the judge’s reasoning. Anne Salisbury warned that Monday’s ruling has “potentially damaging implications for free speech on the Internet.” After the ruling, a Google spokesman expressed sympathy for “cyber bullying” victims but said the company only divulged the user information because it was ordered to do so by a court. “We sympathize with anyone who may be the victim of cyber bullying. We also take great care to respect privacy concerns and will only provide information about a user in response to a subpoena or other court order,” Google’s Andrew Pederson said. ” http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20090819/cohengoogle_090819/20090819?hub=Canada
Google Helps Canadian Courts ID Gmail Users Hard OCP - I know sometimes we sound like a broken record when it comes to this kind of stuff but with companies coughing up your info at the drop of a hat, trying to hide behind an e-mail addy or IP address isn’t too smart these days.
There is still a separation between appropriate speech and inappropriate speech, a separation between freedom of speech, expressing one’s views, opinions and the delivered, deliberate conscious propagation of hatred towards a specific group or person.
OTTAWA — A ruling from a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal member says a controversial law banning Internet hate messages is unconstitutional because it violates free speech protections. Athanasios Hadjis ruled Wednesday that section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act violates Charter protections. While this decision doesn’t throw out the law – that’s something for the courts – it did let accused hatemonger Marc Lemire off the hook, because Hadjis refused to penalize him or order him to stop posting his messages on the net. on his site. Lemire was accused of posting anti-Semitic and anti-gay material on web sites in a complaint brought by Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman. Warman has become an Internet watchdog for such material and the main section 13 complainant before the tribunal. He had asked for a cease-and-desist order against Lemire and a $7,500 fine. Canadian Jewish Congress was quick to call for an appeal of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal member Hadjis ruling. “We strongly disagree with his decision not to impose a cease-and-desist order,” said Joel Richler, an honorary legal counsel to the congress. The congress said other tribunal members have found the section to be constitutional and the courts should be asked to clarify the matter.

Note all of this really is a non brainer for any cyber bully who falsely believe that free speech allows them to say whatever they want personally against some else, individual, individuals, or a group .
I was really saddened to note that too many of the abuses I have witnessed were done by bad , greedy people trying to steal , them trying to get other people’s money for themselves, stealing the money, or getting it under false pretenses. The love of more money is still the basis of what many of the wrong doings is, was all about..
(1 Tim 6:6 KJV) But godliness with contentment is great gain.
(1 Tim 6:17 KJV) Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
(Psa 37:16 KJV) A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
Many years ago some one had said that most marriage problems, divorce are over the issue of money.. some are, but many marriages break down are due to uncontrolled lusts of the flesh, and unforgiveness as well.. But I would agree that many problems amongst so called Christians, including church fights are often over over money, the control over it, and many professing Christians depart from the faith over the false lust for more money and what money can buy for them.
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJV
Let me tell you we do not have to accept human rights abuse that is a lie of the devil.. in this world we have the same rights as the bully even the right to see that a bully is punished for abusing us.. God is not ignorant about the injustices inflicted upon his people, nor does he accept any of our human rights abuses without punishing the abusers shortly.. see the Bible book of Esther if you have doubts..
Est 9:25 But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.
As you can also read in some of my posts here too I also rightfully do not hesitate to call the police, fully expose to all, anyone, cops or church pastors included, who lies about me, slanders me, abuses me or any others too.
Libel, slander, verbal abuse of others on the net can still get one in plenty of trouble in the courts as well…
Even telling the truth has to be balanced with Compassionate (Gal 6:1 KJV) Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Also “I have attended many churches as I have lived in most parts of Canada. One constant across most churches, that I have observed, is the institutional obsession with gossip. It is one sin that we happily overlook because it is so much fun to find the ‘dirt’ on one person or another”. Most evangelical pastors do slander and gossip also. “The Greek word we translate “gossip” only appears one time in the New Testament, in 2 Cor. 12:20, where it is katalalia, which means backbiting, evil speaking, defamation. The root of katalalia is to utter words that talk against or to go as a slanderer. This is compared with the whisperer of Romans 1:29, or the slanderer or backbiter (katalalos, same root) of Romans 1:30. What interests me is that bigoted Christians love to parade the anti-homosexual bias of these verses ) but ignore the bits against whisperers and backbiters,” and divorce, adultery. What 55 percent of the evangelical pastors commit adultery, and on top of that they also now do lie, steal, slander- gossip, abuse others. Unacceptable. It is thus no surprise now then their followers do often as well..”
I have never been hated so much anywhere by any religious groups as I have been by Brethren and Baptist Christians, pastors when they find out I am a Pentecostal … their evident fruits of hatred alone shows how false they themselves now are too. they clearly had, do manifest the opposite of the fruit of the Holy Spirit which is love. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/09/06/the-power-of-god/
The ungodly, unholy wars now amongst Christians and on the net are still all shameful.. even those bad Persons who profess to be Christians but use the courts to dissolve their marriage over pastoral counseling.. Some people sadly, wrongfully still do try to make themselves feel better by getting dirt on others, but that is a futile ,vain, empty approach firstly…. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/19/reality-2/
(Jer 17:5 KJV) Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
(Jer 17:7 KJV) Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
