Fined For Rude SMS

from the be-careful-what-you-say dept

Those of you in the UK might want to be careful about exactly what you send as an SMS message over your mobile phone. Apparently, it’s illegal to send rude messages to a mobile phone. Now someone has been fined for sending nasty messages to a guy who broke up his marraige. I’m sorry, but the mental image I have of an angry guy writing out rude messages on his mobile phone is pretty funny… You would think there’s a more effective (and possibly less expensive) way to express your anger.
