    Ruling in a bizarre case involving lies posted on Craigslist that the court ultimately deemed harassing, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled Tuesday that cyber-harassment is not protected by the First Amendment

    “Their conduct served solely to harass the (victims) by luring numerous strangers and prompting incessant late-night telephone calls to their home by way of false representations, by overtly and aggressively threatening to misuse their personal identifying information, and by falsely accusing (the husband) of a serious crime.

    I'm cool as long as this ruling does not affect Norway or Baltimore.

    I've done ads on Craigslist for my buddies' cars. I take pics of the actual car and price it attractively then say I work weird hours so I'll only take phone calls between midnight and 4am. Gotta use the home phone number and real first name for full spouse annoyance. :yes:

    If you want to keep the money you make instead of giving it to the government you better not live in Massachusetts.
