A 45-year-old woman from Brighton who was subjected to a litany of
abusive messages on Facebook has won a landmark High Court order
forcing the social network to reveal the identities of anonymous
internet trolls who labelled her a paedophile and a drug dealer.
The Guardian reported on Friday that Nicola Brookes had received
"vicious and depraved" taunts on Facebook, following a comment she had
posted on the site in support of axed X Factor contestant Frankie
Brookes' victory in court means she can now bring a private
prosecution against at least four alleged cyberbullies. Facebook has
to reveal the names, email and IP addresses of those said to be behind
the malicious messages on the site.
Is it not better to place a question mark upon a problem while seeking
an answer than to put the label `God` there and consider the matter
