You've still got to subpoena every newsadmin in charge of every
newsserver "represented" in the alleged path to reach the exculpating
"dead end," don't you?

|So how is Google preventing victims from finding the perp?

Google has a multi-million dollar insurance policy, doesn't it?

That sounds a lot like that scheme that the other guy dreamed up a few
years ago, with his "assassination politics" plan. And he ended up
going to prison - federal prison, I think - just for discussing it,
didn't he? If I recall rightly, he wanted to combine a national lottery
system with an ultimate prize of assassinating anyone anywhere, based
only on the rough consensus of other like-minded anonymous individuals
banding together, presumably funded through Paypal (or some other
means), and circulated through Google, I guess. I think you should not
advocate that sort of thing. Not just because it's a bad idea, but just
merely JOKING about that sort of thing, out of bad taste, can bring
you down as well. And the same goes for character assassination, too.


Put more simply, discussing it establishes premeditation. Someone who
threatens violence in writing and then commits violence later cannot
easily claim that it was a "crime of passion," since he clearly
discussed it and contemplated it far in advance. And USENET posts live
forever.

Have the posts been judged defamatory in court?

No.


Then I suggest that you research them. I have better things to do with
my time than to rehash several months worth of discussion for everybody
in about a dozen groups who's finding this thread for the first time.

Regarding the questions some people have been asking about the liability
of Google, vs that of other news providers, those go into legal
arguments that I will not be discussing publicly at all, at this time.

And yet here you are, doing just that. Nobody forces you to reply.

You just did.
