I am not sure this can be compared to what happened to ms. McKennitt...
I just got a little uppset.
I read in the newspaper, that some people start taking pictures of a person they see on the street. Then put it on the net and write a few comments on how the pictured person look.
Then other people sees it and reply on the coment. Some even know the person, and add other pictures and comments.
The person exposed isn't necessarily aware of this.
I think it is a very cruel thing to start bully people like this.
And I think it is very unfortunate because this person has no chance on Earth to defend him- or herself. He or she might not even be like discribed. And it will be very hard to brake down thise rumours. Especially if they are malicious!
Well. This is truly an insult to human privacy!
Hi Anxious 2,
I think the people that do this don't see they are being cruel, they are so self-absorbed and lacking in compassion for others feelings that they think it's just good fun. One could never get away with printing something like that in the newspaper or a magazine without being sued, it should be the same for the internet.
