Cowards or Jerks or Liars

I guess this is good news and everything, but… gosh.

The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled last week that newspaper Web sites, blogs and other sites do not have to give up the identities of anonymous posters except under well-defined circumstances.

Good. Call those people cowards or jerks or liars, but their speech should be protected in the same way that all other speech is under the First Amendment.

Kinda harsh.

Just tryin’ to provide a service here, you know.  Couple of yucks, a viewpoint here and there. We may well be cowards or jerks or liars, but we do have feelings.
