    At first, my thought was 'wtf?'

    Then I read this

    Which made me think 'WTF?- violation of ToS could only be prosecuted if it were criminal activities, such as fraud or violating a restraining order'

    Good. The idiots clamoring for bloodlust didn't realize just how fucking serious effectively criminalizing entering false information on MySpace was.

    And I was referring to the misdemeanor fraud convictions, which would have effectively meant that all those who committed terms of service violations by entering false information could have technically been convicted of the same.

    Uh...correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't there general appeals for harsher and more hostile reactions towards Drew on the basis of vengeance? :eusa_eh:.
