Bloggers beware

30 April 2008  |  2456 views  |  0

According to the BBC, a blogger who took aim at the police over what he considered mistreatment has been fined £150 with £364 costs for posting a "grossly offensive and menacing message".

His freedom of speech defense didn't cut much ice with the magistrate.

So be warned - think before you blog.
