Model Sues Google Because Some People Are Just So Mean

from the suck-it-up dept

I still haven't quite figured out why people think that it's illegal to be a jerk, but there's just some part of people's brains that makes them believe that if they don't like something, it simply must be illegal. A model named Liskula Cohen is apparently really, really peeved that there are some mean people online who have been making fun of her, and she's suing Google to get the company to reveal the identity of those mean, mean jerks. Of course, in doing so, Cohen has only called that much more attention to the fact that some random anonymous internet losers think she's "skanky."

    i for one had never heard of her im pretty sure most if not all techdirt readers will agree.

    perhaps an attempt for self publicity?

    Who's gone and read the blog then?

    I've now read about this bloody woman in over four blogs this morning, I feel dirty but i couldn't help myself, its like watching a train crash, the morbid curiousity is just too much for me. i'll repent later.

    LiveandLove (loopyhoopy ho) is retarded in thinking she can make a difference, just makes her look like a fool!. has she never seen the interwebs insult someone before?

    Re:

    Indeed, in this case which is just about some random guys being retards, all the media exposure of her lawsuit garentees at least some people will go and look her up online.

    In this case, even bad publicity is better than none since people knowing of the original retards opinions does nothing to hurt her at all.

    I for one will not be looking her up, and I hope other techdirt readers follow this example.

    I'm not sure what a shank is, but she does seem a bit shanky. I also heard she's a raciest and and works part-time at the local Denny's. That's just what I heard.

    Skank

    I'll bet she wishes she was a man. Then she wouldn't be such a skank. At least that's my view.

    You don't have to do something "illegal" to be sued. Actually, to be sued you have to do something "wrongful." If you do something "illegal" you're a target for criminal prosecution. It's two different things (the last time I checked).

    She sure doesn't float my boat but she has the same sort of look as Paris Hilton. It is someone's definition of beauty that has nothing to do with mine.

    Liskula Cohen was slightly more attractive before she got hit across the chops with a vodka bottle.

    Given these photos.

    1. http://skanksnyc.blogspot.com/

    2. skank = One who is disgustingly foul or filthy and often considered sexually promiscuous. Used especially of a woman or girl.

    1 + 2 = she has no case according the average moron in a hurry

    I heard somewhere she's a skanky ol' hag - but it could just be rumor...

    Could say she is - and she can sue me, can't get blood from a turnip afterall, but I had just heard about it, didn't say it.

    Of course, I would have never known that she's a vindictive bitch until I read this!

    NO MORE umm.. whatever her name was, PORN FOR ME ANYMORE!!

    Yenta just went to look at this broad. Skanky is kind. She should quit while she's still just considered skanky. I'll wager she will be the type to eat her young, or be a parking ticket maven.

    did some looking, Jan 7th, 2009 @ 9:17am

    Heh

    Turns out that this is the same "model" that got into a drink tossing episode with Samir Dervisevic.
    After which a bouncer at the bar they were in smashed a bottle and cut up Samir Dervisevic pretty badly back in 1970.
    So it turns out she is a instigating skank as well!

    The word libel immediately comes to mind and it is not at all unreasonable to assert that the blog is libelous. Whether or not she would prevail in a lawsuit for libel depends upon the evidence presented to the court, but she could face a very difficult uphill struggle if she is deemed a "public figure".
